Keno

With four draws taking place every day at 10 am, 1 pm, 3 pm and 6 pm, Keno is one of the most active lottery games in New Zealand.

Even though it is a lottery game it is also quite like a bingo. Players get to pick how many numbers they would like to play with as well as how much to wager - this will determine the odds of winning and how much they could win. For example, if you play with 6 numbers and match 3 Keno numbers - you win. But if you play with 7 numbers and match 3 - you are not a Keno winner.

During the live Keno draw, 20 balls are randomly drawn from a pot of 80 balls and your goal is to match as many numbers as you can. The top prize for a $1 wager is $250 million, and it can be won by matching 10 numbers. Plus, the lottery also offers a consolation prize - if you choose 10 numbers and do not match any of them, you get $3 back for a $1 wager.
