If you’re completely new to keno, Keno Blast is very newbie friendly so it’s the perfect starting point. It features a grid of numbers from one to 80, with a control to the left that shoots out the randomly selected winning numbers. On the left you can also control the speed of the game: one will give you a slow pace, two for a mid-pace and three will put the game into turbo speed.

How to play Keno Blast

Keno Blast is incredibly easy to play and requires no special skill or prior knowledge of the game. The aim is to pick up to 10 numbers from the grid of 80 in the hopes your chosen numbers will match up with the randomly drawn winning picks. We’ve broken gameplay down into a step-by-step guide to make it even easier for newbies:

  1. Head to a safe online keno site, sign up for an account and make an instant deposit to start playing for real money. Alternatively, you can use demo mode to try Keno Blast for free.
  2. Use the search engine in the instant-play game lobby to locate and load Keno Blast.
  3. At the bottom left of the game board, use the plus and minus buttons to select the size of your wager, with minimum bets starting at AUD $0.50 and maximums capped at $10.00 per game.
  4. Click on the keno board to select up to 10 numbers you hope will be lucky. Once you’ve selected a number, it will become highlighted with a lighter blue colour. Alternatively, you can click the ‘random’ button to have the computer select numbers on your behalf. You’ll also notice the prize table to the right hand side of the screen will automatically update based on the amount of numbers you have chosen.
  5. When you’ve made your bet and picked your number, click the ‘go’ button and watch as the chute to the side randomly shoots out 20 winning numbers. If you’ve placed a bet on a winning number, that number will become highlighted in green and marked on the prize table, with any wins automatically credited to your account.

How much can I win playing Keno Blast?

Keno Blast gameplayThe amount you can win in Keno Blast (and any other keno game) is dependent on how many numbers you pick and the size of your bet. The more numbers you choose, the more matches you’ll need to make to win. For example, if you pick only three numbers in Keno Blast, you’ll only need to make one match to win a payout, but if you pick the maximum of 10 numbers, you’ll need to match at least three to win even the lowest payout. The more numbers you pick, the higher your payouts. To win the jackpot prize, you’ll need to pick and match 10 winning numbers.

We know this can sound confusing, but just look to the prize table to the right of the game board, as this updates in real time every time you change the size of your bet or the amount of your picks, so you always know how much you stand to win.

Is there a winning strategy in Keno Blast?

Just like all other keno variants, Keno Blast is a luck based game with nothing the player can do to alter the outcome of the results. To win the most amount of money, the only real recommended strategy is to make sure you bet on the max of 10 numbers. Other than that, keno should be played with fun and entertainment at the forefront, while always betting within your means.
