I just put up a page on Super Times Pay Keno. Same concept as the video poker version. In the keno game, the player increases his bet by 25% to pay the feature, as opposed to 20% in the video poker version. My analysis is based on the game at VideoPoker.com, which does not indicate a multiplier probability nor average multiplier. My analysis assumes the same 1/15 multiplier probability, but increases the average multiplier to 4.8. This results in a multiple of ((14/15) * (1/15)*4.8)*(4/5) = 1.0026667 on the base return.

Hopefully an actual game might have the multiplier details in the rules screens. If you see one, please let me know.

Please have a look at the page. I welcome all questions, comments, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is would you play Super Times Pay Keno, if in a keno mood?

You left out a statement in the poll. "Keno players are stupid".

I have looked at every paytable in every casino in my area. There are some big differences, basically 92% to 95%. I guarantee you not one keno-playing imbecile knows the difference. "Paytable?" Deer in the headlights.

Ooops, sorry, I missed the point. Ok, yes, I'll give Super Times Pay Keno a try.

Is this pennies, nickels, quarter, half dollars, dollars or more per coin? I usually play 2 or 3 numbers but the paytables I used to know are long gone except for seeing a 15 on the 2 spots here which gets my attention a bit. Didn't 3/3 numbers pay 81 back in the day? With a 2X multiplier that'd be a 90 payout for 3/3 on this game. I know the real Keno-holics are going for top jackpots but 2500 seems kind of low unless you've got a 4X multiplier on it. As always, a \$1200+ win is gonna bring the attendant over.
