What is a ‘King Ticket’?
A ‘King Ticket’ is a Keno ticket which includes one or more ‘king bets’ – single number bets which play alone and also in conjunction with other groups and selections on the ticket. The King bet is an ‘each way‘ bet, which covers all of the ways in which a single number can win next to those other numbers on the King ticket.
‘King Ticket’ Explained
Keno is a popular casino game played in many casinos and gaming rooms, in which players select numbers on a ticket and then match those against the numbers called in the game. Players can select one or more single numbers, usually up to a maximum of 20 numbers, and receive a return on their stake based on the amount of numbers matched per ticket. Players can also bet on combinations or groups of numbers, receiving a higher reward if these accumulator style bets pay off.
A ‘King ticket’ is a specific kind of Keno ticket on which King bets can be made or a standard Keno ticket on which the player has indicated they which to place one or more King bets. The King bet is a single number bet, and a ticket might contain just one marked number. The player could also select multiple King numbers, receiving a reward if one or more of those numbers are called.
Any groups made on the ticket, including singles and pairs, will stand alone and also have the king bet added to it. For example, a ticket marked with 9 King and split groups 4-5 and 6-7 has three groups in play – the 9-4-5, the 9-6-7 and the 9 alone. The player’s bet will be split across each way that the wager is made, and each winning combination will pay out independently if the numbers are called.
