How to play Keno

Keno is a fun game of chance that gives you the chance to win a minimum of $1 million every 3.5 minutes. In every Keno game 20 numbers are randomly generated from a possible 80.

You can choose how many numbers you wish to play, which is referred to as a ‘Spot’. Spot 1 means you can select 1 number, while Spot 10 means you can select 10 numbers. If your selected numbers come up in the 20 numbers drawn, you win.

Playing Keno is easy

Playing a Keno Single Entry is as easy as 1, 2, 3!


  1. Decide your Keno Spot. Either mark your numbers on a Keno Coupon*, play favourite numbers stored on your Easiplay Club card, or ask for a QuickPick and the terminal will randomly generate the numbers for you.
  2. Decide how much you wish to play per game. You can play between $1 and $100 per game.  
  3. Choose how many draws you wish to play. You can play between 1 and 500 consecutive draws.

Winning Keno

If your selected Spot numbers come up in the 20 Keno numbers drawn, you win. The prize amount depends on how many of your numbers are drawn, how much you have played per game, and how many Spots you have played. For example the prize for matching 7 winning numbers for a Spot 7 entry is $8,000. Spot 10 offers a guaranteed jackpot of at least $1 million if all of your selected numbers are drawn.

Game rules

Like all SA Lotteries games, Keno is governed by rules on how the game is to be conducted, including conditions of entry and participation, prize structure, determination of winning entries and payment or delivery of prizes.
