The best way to play keno ways

August 09, 2011 3:00 AM by Keno Lil

When you are working on your next way ticket to play here is a rule of thumb to keep in mind. In general, the best way tickets to play are made up of groups that are half the size of the way you want to play.

In other words, if you want to play eights, then your most likely best ticket will be made up of groups of four. If you want to play 10’s then you are likely to find groups of five produce the best way ticket.

Odd numbers produce two number pairs around the arithmetic mean. So if you want to play sevens, half of seven is 3½ so we will find the best 7-spot tickets will be designed around groups of threes and fours.

To make the point even clearer, suppose we want to play a way 8-spot ticket. We note that the best of these will probably be formed with groups of four, so three groups of four will give us a 3-way-8, four groups of four will give us a 6-way-8, and five groups of four will give us a 10-way-8 and on…etc.

If we want to play a 9-spot way ticket our inclination should be to play with groups of 4s and 5s, so two 4s and two 5s will produce 2 x 2 = 4-way-9.

Also three 4s and two 5s will produce 3 x 2 = 6-way-9 and three 4s and three 5s will produce 3 x 3 = 9-way-9. This is actually a little more flexible than the even numbered case as there are more alternatives available to play within a price range.

An interesting note is, given that odd number way tickets like our 9-spot above can be produced in several different ways, which is the best? The case we are talking about here is like a 12-way-9, that can be produced by marking 32 numbers in four groups of five and three groups of four or alternatively by marking 31 numbers in three groups of five and four groups of four.

My research indicates that the 32-spot ticket will be a teensy bit better. In general, tickets with more spots tend to be better but in this case the difference between 32- and 31-spots will be miniscule.

Well that’s it for now, Good Luck to all. See you in the lounge. Contact me at KenoLil@GMail.com
