Here are the answers to the 20 keno questions in the June 2 issue.

1) There are 12 possible 5-spots in a ticket grouped 2-2-1-1.

2) Playing a ticket grouped 2-2-2-1-1, playing just the 6s, 7s, 8s at 50 cents a way, you would have one 8, two 7s, and four 6s for a total ticket cost of $3.50.

3) The NV statewide Mega Keno progressive has tickets for 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 spots and the Mega 10 is 10 spots.

4) The pop 80 rate is common to downtown Las Vegas and based on an 80-cent ticket. It is called the Island rate at the California, the Dean rate at The D (with even better pays), the 40-cent rate at the El Cortez, and the Pop 80 rate at Fremont and Jerry’s Nugget (near downtown, MAX or 113 bus from downtown).

5) 80 numbers are drawn in a regular keno game.

6) Most casinos will allow you to play more than one rate on a ticket. Such tickets are called combination tickets. You can play Island rate at the California for 80 cents for your 5-spot groups and the regular $1 rate for 7 spots all on the same ticket. For a 3-3-2-2 ticket you could play one 10 at the $1 regular rate, two 8s at the regular rate, two 7s at Island Rate, the 6 at the Special Aloha Rate, and four 5s at the Island Rate all on the same ticket.

7) My biggest payoff was in June 2004 for a nontourney ticket at The Cal for $10,200. I played at their regular rate; it was an all king ticket of 8 kings, playing $1 for the eight, and 50 cents a way for each 7-spot at the regular rate. In the same game I hit two tourney tickets for about another $6K as well.

8) The column was formerly called and written by Keno Lil.

9) If you play all the possible 6, 7, 8 spots on an all king ticket you have one 8, eight 7s, and 28 6s for 37 tickets on the same ticket. Wouldn’t it be great if they all hit!

10) A group of two numbers on a keno ticket is called a Deuce.

11) Cleopatra keno is “d,” a popular video keno game available in casinos.

12) The casino has a $100,000 aggregate limit. If two players win each would receive $50,000. Most casinos will not count the minor winners.

13) If you want to play all the possible ways of MegaKeno/Mega10 on the same ticket as cheaply as possible, play groups of 1-2-3-4, giving you a 10, 9, 8, two 7s, two 6s, and two 5s totaling $13.50.

14) The reason the Reno Atlantis progressives rise so fast is they put 50 cents from each ticket into the progressive. This is the progressive to play!

15) The two casinos in Las Vegas that have the better MegaKeno/Mega10 pay tables are Excalibur and El Cortez.

16) The Atlantis and Peppermill are in Reno (Virginia Street Rapid Bus). The Rail City is in Sparks, about 4 miles from Reno.

17) The Golden Nugget, Four Queens, California, Fremont, The D, and El Cortez all have keno in downtown Las Vegas.

18) The two off-Strip casinos that have a $2 8 and 9-spot progressive are Gold Coast and Orleans.

19) The casinos with the jumbo progressives for 6, 7, 8, 9 spots are Station Casinos. Cricket betting app for android.

20) Keno allows you to be away from the game itself during the time the game is played. You need not be present to win. Be aware of how soon you must cash in winning tickets.

Bonus answer: A hi-lo ticket is “c,” an 18-way 10-spot. Most keno computers are not programmed for play. It can be played using 2 or 3 different tickets, though basically is it two 4-spot groups and two kings used out of four kings. A ticket is grouped 4-4-1-1-1-1. Using exactly the same numbers, the second ticket is grouped 1-1-1-1-4-4 and the third 1-1-1-1-4-1-1-1-1. Each of the three ticket options has 6 possible 10-spots, thus with the three tickets you have, in effect, an 18-way-10.

Rail City Casino (formerly Plantation Casino) is a casino in Sparks, Nevada. It is owned and operated by Affinity Gaming. It contains 23,854 square feet (2,216.1 m2) of gaming space,[1] with 896 slot machines, 7 table games, a keno parlor, and a William Hillrace and sports book.[2] Dining amenities include the Rail City Ale House and The Buffet & Cafe at Rail City.


The Plantation Casino first sought to open in 1976 as a partnership between John P. Richards; his son, John Leo Richards; and William and Joan Schnack.[3] The state Gaming Control Board initially recommended that the license be denied because of the elder Richards's alleged associations with underworld figures.[3] The casino began operations in 1978.[4]

William Schnack, the casino's president, received a gaming license suspension in 1989 for using counterfeit coins in a casino slot machine.[5] Months later, the Richards-Schnack Development Co. agreed to sell the casino to United Gaming (later Alliance Gaming) for $9.5 million.[4]

The property underwent a grand re-opening in August 1997, taking on its new name as Rail City Casino.[6]

In May 2004, Sands Regent bought the casino from Alliance Gaming for $37.9 million.[7][8] Plans for an $8.5-million expansion were announced in 2005,[9] and were updated in March 2006 with an increased budget of $13.8 million.[10] The casino became part of Herbst Gaming (now Affinity Gaming) in January 2007, when Herbst acquired Sands Regent.[11]
