Keno 101 Arrives At Slotland Online Casino

May 6, 2017

Players at Slotland online casino have been wagering on a unique set of online slot games for almost 20 years. Last year Slotland added a host of online video pokers games to its portfolio. Late this April the online casino introduced yet another game category, which is keno. The new game is called Keno 101.

Introducing Keno 101 through a press release Michael Hilary, the manager at Slotland online casino, said, “People play keno everywhere in Las Vegas. In a café waiting for a meal, at the corner store — it's quick, easy and fun!” He also outlined the ancient history of the game. A form of keno originated in China, where it was played with picture cards and not numbers. It has been reported that the game was devised to raise funds for war preparations. Later it was used to finance the building of the Great Wall of China. The modern name keno derives from the French word for five.

The game play is essentially the same as in other online casinos. You pay for a ticket and mark numbers of your choice on it. Then numbers are randomly drawn and you get paid on the basis of the number of matches. But Slotland has added touches to make Keno 101 more realistic and exciting. It uses the same red and white playing tickets that you find in land casinos so you will immediately identify with that environment. Also, Keno 101 lets you play up to 50 games on auto play using the same lucky numbers.

Slotland online casino has more excitement for players in May. The Game of the Month is Treasure Box. You can increase your gaming time on Treasure Box with a 50% match bonus, available twice a day all month. For every 100 spins on this slot game, you earn a ticket for the monthly prize draw contest for a share of over $1,000 of cash prizes. 10 Slotland online casino players will share the prize pool with the top winner taking home $300. The 50% bonuses and the cash prizes must be wagered 8x and the maximum cash out is 3x the bonus amount.

The Slotland progressive jackpot is running at over $284,000. The highest that it has ever been hit is $266,796. So it will be a record when the jackpot is finally hit. Almost all Slotland online slots are networked to this progressive jackpot, so you have plenty of games to choose from.
