Virginia Lottery introduces Keno

Virginia LotteryOn the heels of the successful launch of online lottery just one month ago, the Virginia Lottery has more news: the launch of Keno.

With drawings every four minutes and chances to win prizes up to $1 million, Keno is one more way to keep things fresh and interesting for Virginia Lottery players.

Keno is a fast-paced game in which players can wager from $1 to $10 per drawing and try to match the 20 winning numbers drawn from a pool of 1 through 80.

For more on how to play Keno, the Lottery has produced an instructional video,

Drawing results are shown on TV monitors at select Virginia Lottery locations, on the Virginia Lottery’s Mobile App, and on the Lottery’s website.

“Keno is a great addition to our existing product mix,” said Virginia Lottery Executive Director Kevin Hall. “We’ve heard from many customers over the years asking for this popular game and we’re delighted to now offer it. And, by continuing to engage with our players in new and different ways, the Virginia Lottery is fulfilling its mission of raising funds for K-12 education in the Commonwealth.”

Keno was first offered by a U.S. lottery in 1991, and since that time, has grown to be available in 21 states, including each state surrounding Virginia. It accounts for more than $4 billion in sales annually across America.

The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 8,911,711. Overall odds to win a prize range from 1 in 2.8 to 1 in 16.6, depending on how you choose to play.

As with all Virginia Lottery games, you must 18 or older to play.
