Crazy for Keno | Last week we discussed playing all the progressives, from 5 through 9 spots in MegaKeno. However, sometimes due to a more restricted gaming budget or a feeling that the progressive is not high enough for a particular number of spots, you may choose to play only for some but not all.

Winning Strategies | A mathematical term “equivalent” has been thrown around in the news a lot this week. My take has been that many who have used it don’t really know what it means. My comments and this column, to be clear, are not political. This is strictly about how certain terms can begin to take on meanings when used too commonly.
