How to Play Keno

What is Keno?

Keno is a fun and easy game to play with entries starting at $1. With a draw every 3.5 minutes, you could have the chance to become a Keno winner in minutes! 

The best part of Keno is that you choose the way you play. You pick your numbers, choose your odds and it’s up to you how much you want to spend.

How do I win Keno?

Keno Single and Keno Combo

To win Keno, the Spots (numbers) you’ve picked must match the numbers drawn.

How much you win is based on:

  • The Spot you’ve played (how many numbers you’ve picked)
  • How many of your numbers matched the winning numbers drawn
  • How much you’ve played per game (between $1 and $100)

To win the Spot 10 jackpot, your entry needs to match all 10 winning numbers in a single game. If there are no Spot 10 jackpot winners, the Spot 10 jackpots to the next draw.

Numbers are displayed for each draw on Keno screen grids in-store or on View Results.

Keno Coin Toss

To win Keno Coin Toss, you must correctly select HEADS, TAILS or EVENS based on the result of where the numbers fall on the Keno screen grid. Correctly guessing HEADS or TAILS doubles your money and correctly guessing EVENS quadruples your money.

See our How to Win section for the full breakdown of what you can win in Keno and Keno Coin Toss.

When do Keno Draw close?

There is a Keno draw every 3.5 minutes. 40 seconds prior to draw close, sales for the current draw close and you'll be entered into the next draw.

Where can I play Keno?

You can purchase your Keno or Keno Coin Toss entry in-store.

How do I play Keno?

When buying your Keno entry you choose how you play, with three different game options.

  • Keno Single is the best game to play if you’re new to Keno. Simply select the numbers you want to play for your chance to win.
  • Keno Coin Toss can be added to a Keno game or played on its own. Guess where most of the drawn numbers will fall on the Keno grid for your chance to win.
  • Keno Combo requires a bit more skill but if you’re up for the challenge this game allows you to create more number combinations, giving you more chances to win.

Regardless of which game you play, you can choose the way you want to play.

  • A QuickPick is the easiest way to play, if you don’t have preferred numbers these will be randomly generated for you.
  • A Marked entry lets you choose what numbers you want to play and even lets you save them as a Favourite for next time.
