It is easy to learn how to play Daily Keno games in the Ontario lottery. What is not so easy to do is to learn how to win Daily Keno Ontario games. If you can get past the first part of knowing where to buy a ticket, you can move on to the second part of choosing the amount of numbers and the numbers to choose to give you the best odd at winning.
The first thing to realize is that there is no sure fire way to choose the Keno Ontario winning numbers on any given day. There are 20 numbers that are drawn at random and that makes it impossible to say for sure what numbers are going to be chosen from the 70 numbers in the game.
While it is not possible to know what numbers to choose that will guarantee you the big jackpot, there are strategies that can be followed that will give you a better chance at winning more than you lose when you play the Keno lottery Ontario.
How Much to Bet
Daily Keno players pick a strategy from a two-pick to a 10-pick and place a bet, ranging from $1, to $10. In order to win the biggest jackpot in the Keno lottery game you have to match 10 numbers from the 20 Keno numbers Ontario games that are drawn. While that may make it sound like you only need to match half of the numbers the odds of being able to do this are 1 in over 2 million. That means that to win a $250,000 jackpot, you have to be willing to lose $2 million. Instead of trying to win the biggest jackpot, concentrate on smaller jackpots that offer better odds. Choosing 8 numbers lowers the odds of winning a $25,000 jackpot down to 1 in about 75,000.
There are also smaller winnings when you are able to match the 6 or 7 out of the 8 Keno winning numbers Ontario daily drawing. It also costs less to make these bets. Over the long run, you will stand a better chance of coming out ahead with this type of strategy.
Twenty-nine percent of all the winning numbers drawn in Ontario Keno are numbers that won in the last drawing, and 44 percent of all the winning numbers are either repeat hits or numbers that were out only one game. Furthermore, 58 percent of all winners were out Two game or less.
Although the numbers are drawn at random, there are some things that can be done that can help you choose numbers that are more likely to be drawn in the Keno lottery game. Some of the ways to choose numbers include:
- Play numbers from the last game – On average there are 5 numbers repeated from the previous game that was played. It is easier to try to choose 5 numbers out of 20 then 8 to 10 numbers out of 70. Make sure to include some numbers from the last game.
- Look for trends – There are many sites that track the trends of numbers for the Keno numbers Ontario game. You can find out what the hot numbers of late are and use them to help choose your numbers.
- Find a long shot number – Every Keno Lottery Ontario game chooses over 25% of the possible numbers. That means that every number will be drawn on a fairly frequent basis. If you find a number that has not been drawn for 10 or 20 straight games, it may be a good idea to play that number. The longest time between numbers is about 40 games.
Also always pick the same numbers each time you play. This logic can’t be exactly explained, but it’s a popular belief that with this consistency in choosing the same numbers over and over again, you may have a higher chance of getting it right sooner or later.
Many players choose to play consecutive numbers, although they change the numbers in particular with each play. For example, one round might include the numbers; 5, 10, 15, 23, 33, etc. and another round might be; 7, 22, 44, 48, etc. In fact, many people do this for every single game they play.
There are those who follow a particular rule of thumb while playing Keno. These players choose numbers that did not show up in their previous games. The logic here is that those numbers will eventually show up, so using them might adhere the best results.
Those who choose to play the same numbers that have already shown up in their previous games believe that there is a higher chance of getting the same numbers again, than there is of getting other numbers that haven’t already appeared.
Go for Odd and Even Numbers
You should have a relatively equal mix of odd and even numbers. More than 58% of all the drawings have a relatively even spread of 10 Odd/10 Even or 9 Odd/11 Even or 11 Odd/9 Even. There has never been a drawing in which all Odd or all Even numbers occurred. Therefore have a mix of both the odd and even numbers.
Get the High and Low Advantage
In Keno, half your numbers should be chosen from the Low Numbers, 1 to 40, and the other half chosen from the High Numbers, 41 to 70. Again 58% of all the drawings have a relatively even spread of 10 Low/10 High or 9 Low/11 High or 11 Low/ 9 High. There has never been a drawing in which all Low or all High numbers occurred. Have both low and high numbers to win.
Also playing lottery pools is one of the winning strategies to win Daily Keno Lottery. Sharing the ticket in this way cost with others stretches your Lotto budget. By playing with a group, you can afford to buy more lottery tickets and play more. Before playing draw up an agreement and have the members of your pool sign it. This way also you can have a chance to win Daily Keno.
Winning at one of the Keno Lottery Ontario games is part luck and part science. Make sure you take care of the scientific part to give you the best chance to overcome the luck part of the game.
