Do you know Keno? You’ve probably heard of it but haven’t taken the plunge just yet. Playing Keno online in Australia is a ton of fun, especially if you’re not an online poker or online casino pro in general, but just want to play a fun game of chance – with, by the way, a chance to win real money in a real big way.

Join the Keno Online Fun at Ignition Casino

Keno is an exciting casino game that is similar to bingo and even some lottery cards that you’d pick up from the corner store back in the day.

With online Keno you don’t even need to head to the store, or a real live casino. It’s all there in the palm of your hand (well, your mobile phone) or on your desktop.

The name Keno has French or Latin roots, with the “quine or quini” meaning five winning numbers. (How five winning numbers turned into twenty winning numbers, we don’t know. But “Twento” just sounds kinda off).

Despite the French or Latin name, the game came from its origins in China, and Chinese migrant workers brought the game with them to the West when they boarded ships to work on railroads well over 200 years ago. Those of you playing online Keno in Australia may not ever know how it made its way down to us, but the name somehow started picking up its current spelling in Houston, Texas back in 1866.

Like online bingo, Keno is a numbers game. It’s generally played with 80 numbers (1 through 80), 20 of which are going to be randomly selected as the winners. You can pick your own numbers and when to start the round.

Do you like instant gratification? Don’t we all these days, hey mate? Good news for you then – Keno results are almost instant and the payouts can be pretty spectacular. Some keno jackpots award up to 200,000x your bet, depending on how many numbers you match. That’s online Keno for real money too – no joke. Up to 200,000 times your initial bet!

When you play Keno online at Ignition Casino, you’re playing a game called Keno Draw. More on the differences of this versus other themed online Keno varieties another time maybe – we’ve got much more to say about this great online casino game.

How to play Keno Online at Ignition Casino for real money?

It’s super-easy to play Keno online for real money. For starters, you select your bet amount, which is located at the bottom of the Keno card.

Use your mouse to select your own 1 to 15 numbers on the Keno card or hit Quick Pick to randomly select 15 numbers. Use your number-guessing powers here!

If you would like to de-select a number (even after a Quick Pick selection), just click the number again and it will no longer be selected for you.

When you select or de-select the numbers, the pay table will change accordingly.

When bets and number selections are confirmed, click “Go!” button to start round – then 20 numbers will roll out in random.

Once all 20 numbers have been rolled out, there is a Payouts table that will tell you how many numbers you predicted correctly and how much you won.

When a number is successfully predicted, it will be highlighted on your screen. Other numbers that were rolled out will be crossed off the Keno card. When all 20 numbers have been rolled out, you’ll be paid according to the pay table.

Why should you play Keno online at Ignition Casino?

This is an easy one, mate. Fun. Escape. Easy. And a shot to win some real money. Let’s expand on these and give you a few more reasons…

First off, the fun part! Online Keno is a light break at any time of day – a game of chance and suspense that you can get into right away, without a ton of strategy and studying for hours (where you can spend money learning the hard way). You can win right away even if you’re a beginner.

Second, we’re Ignition Australia! Not to toot our own horn, but we’ve got amazing graphics, a super trustworthy reputation that’s been around for years, and reliable payouts happening reliably and bigly. We’re known for first-class online pokies, online poker, online blackjack and online roulette, and we’ve applied the same standards to our bingo games. Even our live dealers give that live casino feeling, no matter where you’re sitting.

And here are some more reasons…

Deposit Bonuses

The two major deposit bonuses at Ignition Casino when you’re playing for real money are the Welcome Bonus and the Weekly Match reload bonus. Both of these are triggered when you add funds to your account the first time claim the bonuses. You can use most of these on Keno if you’d like to go big right away, or on any of our hundreds of other great games.

New players can receive up to $2,000 AUD in bonus funds, with a 100% match on their first deposit. This means 50% is good in the casino and the other 50% in the poker room. Keep in mind that when you make that first deposit using cryptocurrency, your bonus rockets up to $3,000! That’s plenty of Keno, you know?

When you reload with your next deposit, make sure you claim the special Weekly Match bonus. That means instant online casino welcome bonuses of up to $100 with a 100% deposit match. Again, more Keno action for you.

Cryptocurrency Bonuses

Play using crypto and all that bonus cash will get even bigger in your online casino account at Ignition.

Every week, you can obtain this bonus with a 100% match up to $1000 when you deposit using any accepted cryptocurrency (more on those in a minute). And because of the changing nature of the exchange rate, we’ll make sure that crypto is converted to AUD as soon as it hits your account so the bigger bonus is secured.

Tell a Friend

Keno is a fun, sociable game and telling a fun, sociable friend about us can make it a profitable one for you too.

The Tell a Friend offer at Ignition Casino means you’ll score 200% of your friend’s first deposit up to $100, plus an extra $25 if their deposit is made by using crypto.

More Promotions at Ignition Casino

There are way more bonuses to cash in on too. Every time you sit down and play online Keno, you will earn Ignition Rewards, which are points that you can cash in later for more playing fun.

Hot Drop Jackpots, Weekly Poker Freerolls, and the $10K Monthly Giveaway are just some of the great bonus offers that are also available when you play Keno online at Ignition Casino.

Play Keno online with Cryptocurrency

Besides Bitcoin (BTC), crypto casino players in Australia can choose from a number of other currencies, like Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin SV (BSV), USD Tether (USDT), Bitcoin Cash (BCH) and as Litecoin (LTC).

Don’t forget – for the newbies there’s an extra $1,000 of bonus money to welcome players to our crypto casino in Australia. This is $1,000 more compared to someone who just uses standard currency to add funds to their account.

Like we mentioned above, every crypto coin converts into its equivalent in AUD when it lands in your account, so the price fluctuations that do happen in crypto trading won’t affect your funds. Unless you score big in Keno right away, of course.

What other games can you play at Ignition Casino?

Keno is a numbers game of chance, like all of our excellent online bingo options too.  

But we’ve also got one the most-visited online poker rooms in the online casino world, with big-money tournaments that offer millions in prize money. Our poker players also enjoy quick Jackpot Sit&Go games that are available around the clock.
