    If you apparently love losing 50m feel free to send some to me, I guarantee the experience will be just as enjoyable. There can be as much or as little blowing as you want.

    i found a strategy were the odds are in your favor in keno, but i havn't had the patience to run it enough times to be 100% sure. you should have worked out your odds before playing, keno is really unfair especially if your picking 10 numbers. This example below assumes the computer picks 20 numbers, when it actually picks 10...†

    Probability of catching 10 numbers is†0.00001100, thats;

    Odds: 9,090,908 - 1
    Percentage: 0.000011%

    With a single ticket you got more chance winning the lottery twice in a row, or probably all three at the same time, of catching ten anyway.

    What you want to work out is your expected return on your bets and its dependent on how many numbers you pick, and i believe some are in the green ;) How many numbers did you pick when you were blowing that 50mil?

    I've never played it until I read this thread so decided to check it out and I can totally see how some people will become addicted to it, I predict loads of "Keno is rigged" threads in the future

    Yep, this is turning into the keno equivalent of "Guys I have this strategy for blackjack that no one has ever heard of" and the "Guys I got this bet combination in slots that wins 100% of the time" threads.

    I suspect it'll be followed by the generic "f**k Chedburn, f**k Torn, the casino is rigged" thread.

    Completely true, the funny thing is that all of us that can actually afford to gamble and lose without any big loss to us only can because we have more sense than to gamble in the first place xD

    I look at your situation in a "glass is half full" perspective.

    Gambling in Torn suppresses our need to gamble in real life, so that 50mil that you lost in Torn is money well spent.†

    That's what I keep trying to tell people that gamble to make money and who tell me how rich I am. Just stop gambling, how hard is it?! On the flip side I know some people use gambling on torn to curb real life addictions which is kinda cool.

    Personally I consider "gambling" to be "spending money for fun" and I usually win but only because I'm so picky I gamble like once a year. That doesn't mean I'm gonna go all compulsive gambler and dump all my money to double it or something crazy like that though, it's still spending money to me.

    Most, if not all, gamblers anthropomorphize "luck" even so far as to give it a name (Lady Luck) so believe that if "she" is unkind to them for an extended period then "she" will make it up to them later (smile on them) if they just trust in "her" and keep on betting, it's actually akin to a religion in that people will believe that randomness can't exist and there has to be some driving force behind it so create rituals around it like kissing dice or wearing their "lucky pants" during a football match. I'm honestly not sure if I find it funny, tragic or fascinating tbh

    i found a strategy were the odds are in your favor in keno

    RIP your wallet.

    Strategy assumed 20 number were drawn so not sure now, and i only bet with 1k's my wallets safe ;)

    Oh and†MadameButterfly, that post is utter bullshit. being addicted to gambling has nothing to do with feeling lucky, kissing the dice or wearing lucky pants. Theres lots of other "real" reasons for it; one being the effects it has on the brain. although some people who do gamble alot loose alot and can convince themselfs that "sooner or later" there luck will change and they'll win big, but not because of any luck ritual you stated. sounded like you were describing a mentally ill person in that post not a gambler.

    Keno is actually suppose to have 20 numbers drawn not just 10. So yes indeed Keno in TC land has been altered to favor the house more so than it already does, which is incredible yeh. Now what about the other games? Well,†based on†what we know about†TC†Keno, I wouldn't be surprised if all the games have a special house edge, which is probably why none of the games†have odd charts available.
