How to play Keno in Northern Territories?

NT Keno Ticket- How to play

Keno in Northern Territories is simple to play. Simply head to a venue that 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 to 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 are also Jackpot Games when playing Keno in Northern Territories, where a total prize pool continues to grow until it is won. Here, players pick six as the jackpot starts at $1225, seven with the jackpot at $5100, eight with jackpot starts at $15,000, nine when the jackpot starts at $100,000, or 10 where the 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.

“No way! That’s fantastic. It’s sweltering in the NT and I’ll be using this prize to install a few more air cons!”

Keno Numbers

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 is going to better their odds of winning.
