How to play Atlantic Keno
All you need is to visit any lottery retailer near to you and ask for a KENO Atlantic selection slip. The selection slip contains 70 numbers to choose from.
Now decide how many numbers you wish to play. Select from two numbers (a 2 SPOT) to 10 numbers (a 10 SPOT). To chose your numbers, mark through them with a pen or pencil or you can ask for Insta Pik and the numbers will be randomly computer-generated for you.
For each set of numbers you choose, pick the amount you wish to wager: $1, $2, $5 or $10. Ask for a $2 “Hi-Lo” ticket and numbers for both a 2 SPOT and a 10 SPOT will be selected for you on one transaction.
If you want another chance to win then play TAG For an additional $1, you can add TAG to your ticket. You can play TAG up to 10 times on each ticket.
You can purchase for future draws by marking the appropriate Advance Play box on the slip. You can play from 2 up to 10 consecutive draws.
How to win Atlantic Keno
Every night, at approximately 11:29:59 p.m. Atlantic time, Atlantic Lottery will draw 20 KENO Atlantic numbers at random using a ball machine.
You win when you match all or some of the numbers you’ve selected in your SPOT.
Your prize depends on how much you’ve wagered and how many numbers you’ve selected and matched correctly. On each draw date, ALC will cause 20 numbers to be drawn at random from among all numbers 1 to 70.
