Only $25,000 for matching 10?  I hope that was a typo.

How can you get a 2.00 winner if you don't match any numbers?..I'm lost..

Because it's more likely to hit 5 numbers than not hit any at all.  It's just pretty much a "we feel sorry for you" payout.

In Keno, it's as hard to match nothing as it is to match four or more of the winning numbers.

You get paid for matching nothing? I'm an expert at that! I'm movin' to Montana! I'll be a millionaire in no time!

That's even weaker than Texas' Cash 5. The odds are WAY out of line for that kind of money.

Those payouts for this game in Montana are way out of line.

I wonder who came up with them. Don't play the game Montana players.

You are getting totally robbed!

Unfortunately, it's not a typo. It really is just a horrible payout.

Despite all the negative comments, the game payout percentage on Montana's game is higher than that of Ohio's, due to Montana's higher payouts for hitting 6 and 7. The Ohio game payout percentage is 50.91%, Montana's is 58.71%.

i think... KENO whit a good system and patience its easy to won maybe easy that a PICK6 GAME.. are a ot of sytem.. already i am working in this.. in KENO OF MY COUNTRY. the pay out are cool

THE SYSTEM that i am using is... play just EVEN numbers... or play CUATRIPLETS NUMBERS its mean the MOST COMMON 4 numbers

THE PAY OUT OF MY COUNTRY ARE THE NEXT 

 

0....$2.5 USD

5....$2 USD

6.....$9 USD

7.....$30

8.....$300

9.....$4,500

10.....$750,000

i think the pay out for 10 numbers are one of the most HIGHER of the world
