Here is our first of several upcoming keno games. I personally don't play keno, but the games we are working on provide some excitement to what I consider to be a kind of boring game.

Pick your numbers and sit back and watch the action. If you receive a red (MultiDraw ball), it will randomly award additional draws and random multipliers.

If you have any questions or feedback, please let me know.

In the Demo game, the player's bet is listed as 1+1. What does that mean?

Is it just 2 units on every hand?

Why it's there no payoff for a catch of 0 when making a large number selection? It should be an easy carrot to dangle considering the bonus balls would all work against it.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

I don't play VK very often, but I like this variation. I do have a couple of suggestions about mainly the display.

When the bonus is revealed, can you show both the number of balls and the multiplier at the same time? And I think it would have better effect if the bonus results were more noticeable. Perhaps you could flash the # of balls and multiplier in the area right above the original 20 balls, where the bonus balls are displayed.

Also, is it possible to show the number on the bonus ball? I like to watch the balls drop for my numbers, but when the bonus ball comes out, it only has a star. It appears that the bonus ball does represent one of the numbers, but that number isn't revealed until after the bonus is revealed.

I was thinking the same thing, but as a player, how infuriating would it be to get 0 hits only to have the bonus ball give you 10 more balls (giving you 1 or 2 hits) and a 5x multiplier?

The 1 + 1 bet is really a total bet of two units. We have always tried to separate the bet to show that the base bet is 1 unit plus the additional 1 unit bet for the bonus opportunity.

Good question. I think with keno there are so many ways to adjust the pay scale which leads to a variety of ways to structure the return. In our case, we decided against paying for zero hits, but it is a good idea.

Glad you like it Joeman. I will look into seeing if we can improve the effects of revealing the extra balls and multipliers. Thanks for the suggestion.

I will also look at when the number is revealed on the bonus ball.

I will check with my math guy before I say anything that may be inaccurate, but click on the "i" button in the upper left hand corner and it will show you the RTP for the entire game. I'm not a keno player at all, but I'm pretty sure the RTP for keno isn't close to 100%, but in our game we wanted to show the potential of the concept so we opted for a more enjoyable return.
