---Choose how many numbers (spots) you want to play by marking in the appropriate box.
---Select the amount of money you want to wager per game $1, $2, $5, $10 or $20 by marking in one of the Amount Bet boxes.
---You can play up to 30 consecutive games by marking the appropriate box under Number of Games Played.
---Pick the numbers you wish to play from a field of 80 by marking in each of the boxes keeping in mind the number of spots chosen above. You may also let the Lottery computer choose your numbers by marking in the Quic Pic (QP) box.
IMPORTANT: KEEP MARKS INSIDE BOXES. Use only PENCIL OR BLUE ball-point pen to mark the betting slip or the slip will be voided.
--Give the completed betting slip to an ON-LINE Lottery Sales Agent.
--The ticket agent will give you a separate ticket as your receipt. IMPORTANT: CHECK YOUR TICKET! BE SURE THAT IT REPRESENTS THE NUMBERS AND DRAWING(S) THAT YOU WANTED TO PLAY AS IT IS YOUR ONLY PROOF OF PLAYING THESE NUMBERS.
The Ohio Lottery computer then randomly chooses 20 winning numbers from 1-80 and displays them on a Keno monitor. Players win by matching some, all, or in some cases, none of the numbers they have chosen to the numbers chosen by the computer.
As a betting game, it is notable because keno bets often have a house edge larger than any other game. The house edge ranges from 4% to 66%. The typical house edge for non-slot casino games is between 0% and 5%.
