It’s all about frequencies in live keno

A lot of keno players are curious about the relative frequency of different catches in keno. Here is a list of all catches from 1-15 plus the 20-spot, sorted in order of frequency (most frequent to least frequent).

Even a cursory perusal of this chart is revealing. For instance, a 5/9, 6/12, 7/15 and 4/6 are all roughly equivalent in frequency. And, in this instance, the 12-spot looks attractive.

Another interesting comparison is the frequency of 5/5 versus 7/9. I think that in this instance the 5-spot shines. If you study this chart carefully, you will find many meaningful comparisons.

Here’s a list of hits based on frequency that may help out.

0/1 = 1.33; 0/2 = 1.79; 1/4 = 2.31; 1/3 = 2.32; 0/3 = 2.40; 1/5 = 2.46;

Ticket of the week:

14-spots, grouped 4-4-2-2-1-1

1-way-14; 2-way-13; 3-way-12 ; 4-way-11; 5-way-10; 6-way-9; 7-way-8; 8-way-7; 7-way-6; 6-way-5; 5-way-4 ; 4-way-3; 3-way-2; 2-way-1.

 

I just like the symmetry of this ticket. If you take the number of ways, starting with the 14, you get the sequence 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. Play the 6-way-9 and the 6-way-5 for a pretty good way ticket.

On a scale of one to five spikes, with five being the highest, Keno Lil rates this ticket 3.5.

If you have a keno question, please write to me c/o GamingToday or contact me on the web at [email protected]. Well, that’s it for now. Good luck! I’ll see you in line!
