Keno in Northern Territory is widely enjoyed by Keno fans in land casinos. NT Keno is run by SKYCITY Darwin the only casino in Darwin and you can find it also in over 70 venues in the Northern Territory. NT Keno is the only operator to host live ball keno instead of using random number generator software that is used in land casinos. Also you can enjoy Keno in various other locations too.
Where to play NT Keno
As said above Keno is played widely in over 70 locations such as pubs, clubs, and taverns, which televise NT Keno across the Territory. SKYCITY Darwin operates NT Keno live under an agreement with the Northern Territory Government. In Alice Springs NT and Arnhem Highway both have 7 Keno venues; Berry Springs has only one Keno location and that is in Tavern, Cape Crawford has 37 Keno venues mainly clubs and hotels and Tavern. At Darwin river you can enjoy Keno at Litchfield Pub only. Similarly at Nhulunbuy there are two places to enjoy Keno, one at Club and one at Walkabout Tavern. Also Alyangula has two Keno places one at Alyangula Golf Club and one Alyangula Recreation Club. Jabiru too has two Keno locations one at golf club and other at sports and social club. Also Katherine has three Keno locations along with Tennant Creek. Noonamah has one Keno venue you can find at Noonamah Tavern followed by two keno destinations at Pine Creek.
The tension grows until the first call of the Keno race is drawn, and then with every one of the twenty numbers drawn you can hear the player’s excitement grow. Until finally the last of the twenty keno balls are drawn and the victor is revealed by screaming and boastful acts of a victory dance. However, not every keno race has a winner, if there is not a winner the jackpot only grows.
How to play NT Keno
NT Keno is simple to play. Simply head to a venue which hosts the game and pick up a form to fill out. There are a total of 80 numbers and players can choose from one to 10, 15, 20, or a maximum of 40 numbers you think will be drawn for the standard games.
To determine your choices put an ‘x’ through each ‘spot’ or number and then pick how many games you want to play and how much you wish to wager on each game. If you can’t pick the numbers yourself, you can opt for QuickPick where the numbers will be randomly selected for you. The minimum amount you can play for one game is $1, irrespective of the amount of numbers you choose.
Once you have the form filled out you need to hand it into the keno operator or bar attendant who will put your numbers through and you then simply wait for the results. The numbers are drawn live by a human dealer instead of RNG software determining the results. This is why many people love NT Keno, even though RNG software is incredibly fair when opting for reputable software providers, such as the many we recommend for online keno.
There’s also Jackpot Games, where a total prize pool continues to grow until it is won. Here, players pick six as the jackpot starts at $1225, seven with jackpot at $5100, eight with jackpot starts at $15,000, nine where jackpot starts at $100,000, or 10 where jackpot starts at $1,000,000 spot jackpot games.
This is compared to the maximum payout possible of $200,000 for the standard games – with the number of spots you’ve picked and gotten correct and how much you have wagered determining your payout.

More options in the Keno game
There are many other bonus kind of options to enjoy when playing Keno like the Superplays and Head or Tails.
In superplays you can opt for automated numbers, similarly to QuickPick, but with more ways to win. There are 10 Superplay options to pick from with the maximum costing $15 where you get 15 chances to win all spots from one to 10 on the one ticket, including all jackpot games too. Visit the SKYCITY Casino website for more information on Superplays.
You can also play Heads or Tails, which is generally located on the back of the form or on a separate form – or you can tell your operator too. You simply pick whether 11 or more numbers will be drawn in the top half for Heads, or 11 or more numbers will be drawn in the bottom half for Tails. You can also opt for Even, where 10 numbers are evenly drawn in the top and bottom grid. The maximum bet per game is $500 for Heads or Tails.
To play the game of Keno you have to choose numbers to play. When you choose your numbers and mark them they are then called spots. Your objective in the game is to pick the numbers that are going to be drawn in the next keno race. Some players choose to play the same keno numbers every time until they hit big.
Other players feel changing their numbers each round or every few rounds are going to better their odds of winning. There is even the thought of playing 7 numbers from their first two rows and then having 2 random numbers for the best results. However you choose to pick your NT keno numbers is up to you. Remember, Keno is strictly a game of chance.
