Frequently Asked Questions

What is keno?
Keno is a lottery style game where numbers are randomly selected from a pool of 80 numbers. Players place wagers on the numbers that they hope will be drawn. A person may select anywhere from 1 to 20 numbers and place wagers that the numbers they have selected will be the numbers drawn.

How do I play keno?

  • Obtain a bet slip from the keno caddies located throughout the lounge or parlor. Select from 1 through 15 numbers, or play one of the specialized games found in the betting books located around the lounge or keno parlor.
  • Use a keno-betting book to help select the type of game or wager you would like to play and mark this on your ticket.
  • Select the number of games you’d like to play and the amount you would like to wager on each game on your bet slip.
  • Give your bet slip to one of our friendly keno writers. In return, you will receive a computer-generated ticket showing the wager you made. You must check your ticket for accuracy before leaving the keno writer station.
  • Watch for the numbers that have been selected on the “keno board” or television monitors at the location you are playing keno. Twenty out of eighty numbers are selected for each game.
  • The amount you win is dependent on the amount of numbers you selected, the type of game and the amount you wagered.

How do I claim a win?
All tickets played for less than 21 games must be claimed immediately after the last game has been called. Tickets purchased for 21-999 games may be claimed up to 30 days following the date of the ticket purchase.

What if I’m not sure I won?
If you’re not sure your ticket is a winner go to the keno counter and ask the keno writer to scan your ticket. They will gladly let you know if your ticket has won anything.

What is a Way ticket?
Way tickets are a method of placing several different wagers on a single keno ticket. To play a Way ticket, simply circle groups of numbers for the combinations you would like to play.

Lucky Keno Owners Seek Transfer of Business to New Company

The owners of Lucky Keno have announced their intention to sell their keno operating business, hopefully by the end of this year.

Andy Clarkson told the Scotts Bluff County Board last week he and his family have been looking for the right buyer for about two years, and have found that entity in Small Computer Solutions, LLC, which is owned and operated by Ryan Keller and his aunt.

Clarkson said Keller has been involved on the IT side of the operation for some time, and has been overseeing operations since January. “He’s managing the entire thing, and running everything, pretty much day to day. Any problems that arise, he knows what action to take, who to talk to, (and) just keeping on top of it,” said Clarkson. “So that was really, really important. Normally, when you sell a business, one owner quits one day and a new owner takes over, we don’t know what that new owner is going to do. He just knows how things run, and how they’ve got to go to make them run to get them though every day.”

Attorney Rick Ediger told the board their approval would be needed for assignment of the agreement and consent for Keller to file a gaming permit with the Nebraska Revenue Department.

He said if those steps were approved, commissioners would want to determine if they want the current agreement that expires July 1, 2022 to continue, or begin negotiations on a new one.

No action was taken, and the Board is expected to consider the issue at a future meeting.
