NY launches Keno-style lottery game

NEW YORK, Sept. 6 — New York State has launched a new Keno- style lottery game that gives bettors results every five minutes and faces a legal challenge from casino magnate Donald Trump. The new game, called Quick Draw, debuted at 10 a.m. on Tuesday in about 1,800 establishments around the state. Lottery Director Jeff Perlee was in Manhattan for the first drawing, and he defended the new lottery. ‘It’s going to be a very important source of revenue for the state,’ he said. Officials predict that Quick Draw will add $180 million to the state’s coffers in its first full year of operation. Quick Draw is different from New York’s scratch-off and Lotto games because the player determines the odds by deciding how many numbers to play and how much to wager. A central computer in Schenectady, N.Y., spits out 20 numbers randomly chosen from a field of 80 every five minutes between the hours of 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. to midnight. The fast-action quality of the game — coupled with the fact that about half the video monitors will be in establishments that serve alcohol — has sparked criticism. Trump, who owns two casinos in Atlantic City, N.J., has filed a lawsuit in state court to stop Quick Draw. Last week he obtained an injunction halting the game’s launch, but the state then obtained an order staying the injunction. Trump’s subsequent efforts to vacate the stay failed, but the suit is still pending.

Calling the game ‘video crack,’ Trump claims Quick Draw violates the state constitution’s prohibition against many types of gambling. ‘This is an attempt to slip broad-scale casino-type gambling into the state under the guise of amending the New York Lottery,’ Trump said in announcing the lawsuit. Trump and other critics contend that Quick Draw will prove highly addictive and will siphon off cash from teenagers and the poor. But Perlee said that Keno-style games in Massachusetts, Maryland, Rhode Island, Kansas, California, West Virginia and Oregon have not caused problems. ‘Those states wouldn’t continue it if all the horrible things that are said about (Quick Draw) were true,’ he said. Perlee said that in the other states, the average bet for an evening is $6. ‘Once the game is up and running, a lot of these predictions of doom and gloom will go away,’ he said.

New York Pick-10 Keno Tips

New York Pick-10 Keno started on August 13, 2001. Keno is a 10-20-80 game in which the player picks 10 numbers from 1 to 80, and the lottery draws 20. The minimum play is $1 for 1 game. The drawings are held every night. The jackpot is $500,000 cash.

The odds of winning the jackpot are one in 8,911,711. This game is better than some in New York, but not the best. With odds of one in 45,057,474 of winning New York Lotto, one in 302,575,350 of winning the Mega Millions game, or one in 292 million of winning Powerball, New York Keno looks pretty good. But, the best games to play in New York are New York Take 5 (one in 575,757 odds) and NY Sweet Million (one in 3,838,380 odds).

Here are some valuable number selection tips for New York Pick-10 Keno from Gail Howard’s book, Lottery Master Guide, that should fatten your bank account. (Advantage Gold software makes all the number selection charts for this game; and the wheeling software to use is Wheel Ten Gold.)

Twenty-five percent of all the winning numbers drawn in New York Pick-10 Keno are numbers that won in the last drawing, and 44 percent of all the winning numbers are either repeat hits or numbers that were out only one game. Furthermore, 58 percent of all winners were out TWO GAMES OR LESS!

Lottery Strategies for How to Win New York Pick-10 Keno

PLAY ONLY THE HOTTEST NUMBERS

Keep in mind, you need to get only HALF of the 20 numbers drawn to get the 10 numbers required to win the jackpot. Repeat hits AND numbers out ONE game (that is, numbers repeated from the previous drawing, and numbers drawn one game before that) account for about half of all the winning numbers drawn. Eliminate a lottery number if it has already had three hits in a row. Two valuable tools in the Advantage Gold software for lotto strategy help further target lotto numbers more likely to hit and help you eliminate numbers unlikely to hit: The Multiple Hit Pattern Chart ® shows which numbers are most likely to hit two drawings in a row and which repeat hits to eliminate; the Skip and Hit ® Chart ® shows ONLY which numbers hit most often after skipping just one game (and two games) from your group.

BEST TIMING FOR GUARANTEED HOTTEST NUMBERS

In the 10-20-80 game, five numbers, on average, are repeated from the previous drawing. When you see one or two drawings that have had fewer than five repeat hits, you could expect the next drawing or two to have a higher than average number of repeat hits.

Consider this a VERY Short Term Bias Tracker ® , because we are considering only the last two drawings—expecting to see an immediate Trend Reversal when the Bias shows a below average number of repeat hits. Nine of the winning numbers are either repeat hits or numbers out just one game. And 11 of the winning numbers drawn are either repeat hits or numbers out one or two games. You don’t have to play every day. Wait for one or two drawings that have had fewer than 9 winning numbers out two games or less, because invariably the next drawing or two will produce more of those than average, making it easier to win.

WHEN TO PLAY A LONG SHOT NUMBER

Since one-quarter of all keno numbers are drawn each game, you don’t see many long skip periods between wins. The longest losing streak for any keno number was 35 games. In the entire 3000+ game history of a 10-20-80 keno, only eight times has a number skipped more than 30 drawings without a win. When you see a number out more than 30 drawings, by all means play it. Probability is on your side. A long shot number in keno is one that has skipped more than 10 games. (In Lotto 6/49, a long shot number is one that has been out for 17 games or more.) Numbers out for more than ten games account for only four percent of the winning numbers drawn.

GET THE ODD/EVEN ADVANTAGE

You should have a relatively equal mix of odd and even numbers. More than half (55 percent) of all the drawings have a relatively even spread of 10 Odd/10 Even or 9 Odd/11 Even or 11 Odd/9 Even. There has never been a drawing in which all Odd or all Even numbers occurred. The Odd/ Even Bias Tracker ® in Advantage Gold tells you when you should play more Odd or more Even numbers.

GET THE HIGH/LOW ADVANTAGE

In keno, half your numbers should be chosen from the Low Numbers, 1 to 40, and the other half chosen from the High Numbers, 41 to 80. More than half (55 percent) of all the drawings have a relatively even spread of 10 Low/10 High or 9 Low/11 High or 11 Low/ 9 High. There has never been a drawing in which all Low or all High numbers occurred. The Low/High Bias Tracker ® tells you whether you should play more Low or more High numbers the next drawing.

Lottery Wheels

USE BALANCED WHEEL ® SYSTEMS

Balanced Wheel ® Systems allow you to bet a large group of numbers, play scientific combinations of those numbers, and get a specific minimum win guarantee. Balanced Wheels ® force all the winning numbers that are in your group to come together to give you at least one prize if some or all of the winning numbers are in your chosen group.

It’s true that the more NY Keno numbers you wheel, the easier it is to trap the winning numbers in your chosen group. But to get the most leverage for your money, the optimum number of numbers to wheel is not more than four or five numbers over HALF the numbers in your game. Otherwise, you’ll be spending MORE money chasing a SMALLER guaranteed prize. You benefit more by wheeling a carefully selected group of lotto numbers.

Lottery Pools and Lottery Syndicates

POOL YOUR WAY TO LOTTO RICHES

Several of the 109 Lotto jackpots won with Smart Luck lottery systems were won by groups of people who pooled their money. Sharing the ticket cost with others stretches your Lotto budget. By playing with a group, you can afford to buy more lottery tickets—and play larger wheeling systems—than you could (or should) by yourself. Draw up an agreement and have the members of your pool sign it.

How to Get Lucky in Lotto

CASH IN ON THE LUCK OF OTHERS

When you form a Lotto pool, your group is also pooling its aggregate luck. A jackpot could happen because of the luck just one member brings to your pool. Select your partners carefully. Share your luck with winners, not losers. Avoid negative people; not only are they unlucky, but they dampen enthusiasm and drain energy from others. You want to enhance your own luck, not dilute its strength. One quick way to tell winners from losers is simply to ask them: “Do you think you are a lucky person?” Many people quickly admit, “I’m unlucky. I never win anything.” They won’t bring good luck to your group either.

CASH IN ON A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

No one should play games of chance out of desperation because they need the winnings. The needy have a greater fear of losing the hard-earned money they gamble with. It is just one of life’s dirty tricks that the very fear of losing blocks the winning forces. Thoughts are charged with energy, especially when triggered by emotion. Fear attracts exactly that which one fears. A strong desire for a goal that is charged with positive energy, attracts a positive response, especially when every effort is made to attain that goal.
