1. WHAT IS DAILY KENO?

DAILY KENO is a lottery game that allows players to choose how they want to play. Twenty numbers from 1 through 70 are drawn daily, and players decide how many numbers they want to match.

2. HOW DO I PLAY DAILY KENO?

Twenty numbers from 1 through 70 are drawn daily. Players can choose how many numbers they want to match. Here are four simple steps to play DAILY KENO:

  1. Pick how many numbers you want to play. Choose from two numbers (2 PICK) up to 10 numbers (10 PICK).
  2. Pick your numbers from 1 to 70 or choose Quick Pick. As an example, if you choose to play two numbers in step one, you need to pick only two numbers.
  3. Pick your bet – $1, $2, $5 or $10. The more you bet, the more you can win.
  4. Pick how many draws you would like to play, from 1 to 10 draws.

Match your numbers to the 20 winning numbers drawn twice daily to win.

3. CAN I PLAY ENCORE ON DAILY KENO?

Yes. ENCORE is available on DAILY KENO.

4. HOW MUCH MONEY CAN I WIN ON DAILY KENO?

Lottery players can win from $2 to $2.5 million playing DAILY KENO.

5. WHY DO SOME DAILY KENO TICKETS PRINT WITH A PRIZE TABLE AND SOME DO NOT?

As part of our improvement to DAILY KENO, a new prize table feature will appear on tickets to show lottery players what they can potentially win on their ticket. This new feature will appear only on DAILY KENO tickets generated from the new selection slip and Quick Pick selections. Tickets printed from the old selection slip will include the following message instead of a prize table: "Visit olg.ca for prize information." Lottery players are encouraged to use the new selection slip since the old slip will be phased out in the future.

 

6. WHEN DID THE DAILY KENO RELAUNCH TAKE PLACE?

The DAILY KENO improvements were introduced in January 2010.

7. HOW MANY DAILY KENO BOARDS CAN BE PLAYED ON ONE TICKET?

You can play up to two boards using the new DAILY KENO selection slip or up to four boards if you are playing Quick Pick at a lottery retailer. The old DAILY KENO selection slip, which is being phased out, offered four boards.

8. WHAT ARE THE MOST POPULAR DAILY KENO SELECTIONS?

The most popular DAILY KENO selections are 4 PICK, 5 PICK and 10 PICK. The majority of DAILY KENO players select their own numbers rather than using Quick Pick.

9. CAN I USE QUICK PICK TO PLAY DAILY KENO?

Yes. The Quick Pick option is available with DAILY KENO. When you choose Quick Pick, the retailer will ask you how many numbers you want to play and how much you want to bet.
