It is worthwhile to have a few 100-way tickets in your keno playing repertoire.

After all. you might just get the itch to play something for a dime a way, a $10 ticket. Perhaps you want to play in a tournament that requires a $10 ticket.

Although I do believe (and have evidence to prove it) straight 5-spots are the best tickets to play in many tournaments, the same cannot be said for a 100-way-5.

Most payout tables will give you from $55 to a max of $100 on a 10¢ solid five, and that just isn’t enough to influence the standings of most tournaments. Nevertheless, for you die hards, here is a 100-way-5:

Mark 15 numbers and group them 3-3-2-1-1-1-1-1-1-1. The breakout is 3-2 (2), 3-1-1 (42), 2-1-1-1 (35) and 1-1-1-1-1 (21) for a total of 100.

As a refresher, these numbers can be gleaned directly from Pascal’s Triangle:

Now a 100-way-6 might start to make more sense; a hit of $150 to $250 might at least put you in the hunt in a tourney, but sadly I can find no way to play one.

My only suggestion is to quick pick’em if you can. You can quick pick up to 13 sixes on a ticket.

You can play a 100-way-7 by marking 18 numbers, grouping them 4-3-3-2-1-1-1-1-1-1. This ticket, curiously related to the 100-way-5 above, is essentially created by substituting a four-spot for one of the kings!

The breakout is 4-3(2),4-2-1(6),4-1-1-1(20),3-3-1(6),3-2-1-1(30),3-1-1-1-1(30) and 2-1-1-1-1-1(6). A win of $800 to $1,000 on a dime a way seven will do you good in a tourney.

How about a 100-way-8? Here is a nice one: Mark 20 numbers and group them 3-3-3-2-2-2-2-1-1-1. This is a 100-way-8 and, incidentally, also a 100-way-12 should you choose to accept that mission!

I must also mention a traditional “cover all” ticket that was somewhat popular in the past. You use all 80 numbers, lining off 10 groups of 5 and 10 groups of 3. Since 10 x 10 = 100 and 5 + 3 = 8 we can visualize the “cover all” 100-way-8.

If you like playing all 80 this is a decent ticket, about half the cost of a 190-way-8.

A 100-way-9 may be formed by grouping 20 numbers 4-4-3-3-1-1-1-1-1-1 and a 100-way-10 can be marked with the same 20 numbers if you use five groups of three and five kings (3-3-3-3-3-1-1-1-1-1). Nice!

If you are truly perverse and need to play a 100-way-11 just play the same as the 100-way-9 above. It also has 100 elevens. Have fun!

Well that’s it for this week. Good Luck! See you on line at [email protected]
