Prize value based on $1 wager. For wagers over $1, multiply the prize amount by the amount wagered.
The maximum prize payout for a single draw game for each of the 10, 9, or 8 spots top prize will be $2 million. In the event of multiple winners for the top prize in a single drawing, in which the total payout for that drawing would exceed $2 million, each ticket would be awarded a proportional share of the $2 million jackpot prize cap by dividing each ticket’s winning jackpot prize total by the total of all winning prizes to determine each ticket’s proportional share of the $2 million.
A "spot" represents the amount of numbers chosen by a player. The "spot" chosen by the player establishes the prize structure level that will be used to determine whether the player has purchased a winning ticket for that drawing. For more information on this and other Lottery terms, go to our Lottery Lingo page.
KENO is a draw game that gives players the opportunity to “win every four minutes”. Players choose anywhere from 1 to 10 numbers out of a pool of 80 numbers, then watch the drawing on TV monitors within Ohio at over 1,400 KENO establishments.
On a KENO bet card designate how many “spots” (numbers) you wish to play from 1 to 10, how much you wish to wager, and for how many drawings (1-20). You will select 10 numbers out of 80 or use the Auto-pick feature and the terminal will randomly select the numbers for you.
You can wager $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $10 and $20 on any KENO drawing.
To win the KENO top prize you must match 10 of the 20 numbers drawn by the Ohio Lottery from a pool of 1 - 80 numbers.
You win by matching your selected number(s) to the 20 numbers drawn by the Lottery. You could win up to 38 different ways, including the top prize.
Booster is a multiplier feature that can increase your KENO winnings. The Booster costs an extra dollar for every dollar wagered and applies to all prize levels. The Booster may boost your winnings 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x. The 1x Booster does not boost a player’s winnings.
KENO to Go makes KENO available for purchase at all Ohio Lottery retailers. Players will be able to purchase their tickets and watch the drawings on demand at the KENO drawing web page. Players can also watch the results on the Lottery's mobile web site, and all KENO monitor locations.
Every KENO drawing has its own unique "draw number." The draw number is printed on your ticket and is also referenced wherever drawing results are posted. If you select consecutive draws, your selected number(s) will be played for each of the drawings printed on your ticket.
KENO can be played daily, with drawings occurring every 4 minutes, from 6:04am until 2:28am the next morning. KENO tickets can be purchased 24 hours a day.
You can see the KENO drawings at any KENO monitor retailer. For a listing of KENO monitor locations near you, got to our Find a Retailer web page. You can also view the drawings online or on your mobile phone at www.ohiolottery.com.
To make the KENO drawings available on demand to as many mobile devices and web browsers as possible, we cannot present them in the same format you see at KENO monitor locations.
The KENO drawings will be made available online within a few minutes of the draw occurring.
KENO tickets can be cancelled, prior to the draw. The draw number on the ticket indicates the drawing for that wager. KENO tickets cannot be cancelled during terminal-generated promotions that include the KENO game.
At the top of every KENO bet card is a Booster option.
