Players may select as many numbers as they like but no more then 15, they do this by marking it off on their Keno cards. Once all the players have placed their bets and handed in their cards the game begins. When the game starts 20 of the 80 numbered balls drop into the barrel. These 20 numbers are the winning numbers and they will be displayed on the screen. If you selected any of the winning numbers you will be paid out accordingly.
