How to Play Club Keno
Club Keno has similarities to bingo, as far as numbers being called (drawn). You must choose how many numbers you want to play, up to 10 spots.
After choosing your numbers, you need to pick your wager for each draw. This could be one dollar or up to $20.
Depending on how many spots you have to fill, you will need to select numbers in a range from one to 80. You can allow the machine to choose for you.
There are features to consider to potentially win more money. One of them is Extra, which doubles your wager.
Another add-on to check out is the Kicker, which allows for the chance to increase your Club Keno prizes up to 10 times the amount. It also doubles the wager, but does not count towards Extra or The Jack prizes.
The Jack is your chance to play for the progressive jackpot and other prizes. The Jack will increase your wagers with $1 each game.
When playing The Jack, eight Easy Pick numbers that range from 1 to 80 will be printed on the ticket. This is optional but necessary to play for the progressive jackpot.
Simply check your results after playing by looking at the Michigan Lottery website, the app, or the local news station that provides these updates.
Odds, Price, and Prizes for Club Keno
The overall odds of winning a single prize vary from one in 4.00 to one in 9.05, with the top prize odds of 1 in 8,911,711.18. These odds change as players choose to add spots to fill for how many numbers they want.
The prizes range from $2 all the way to $500,000 for the regular draw. In addition, players can win $2 million for the jackpot or whatever the progressive jackpot is at the time of the draw.
Each game costs a dollar unless players add more features or wagers. Purchasing another ticket could be beneficial to winning a prize, but only if your budget allows it.
