Supplemental Details:

Keno – (noun) A game of chance where players select one or more numbers from a set of number, prior to a random drawing for that set of numbers. Keno is usually played with as many as 20 numbers being drawn from a set numbered 1 to 80. The game is very similar to lotto. The game is played using a mechanical or software tool to select the winning numbers from the field. Keno is usually played in casinos or bars, where players can spend hours, which leads many to feel that it's a simpler Bingo game
