Virginia News

RICHMOND, Va. (WFXR) – As the Virginia Lottery launched its successful online lottery games one month ago, they have another piece of exciting news for lottery enthusiasts.

The launch of Keno.

The Virginia Lottery’s newest game features drawings every four minutes with chances to win prizes of up to $1 million.

Keno is a fast-paced game where players can wager from $1 to $10 per drawing and try to match the 20 winning numbers drawn from a pool of numbers from 1-80.

Drawing results are shown on television monitors at select Virginia Lottery locations, as well as on the Virginia Lottery’s mobile app and on the Virginia Lottery’s website, where you can also view an instructional video that the Virginia Lottery has produced to explain the game.

“Keno is a great addition to our existing product mix. We’ve heard from many customers over the years asking for this popular game and we’re delighted to now offer it. And, by continuing to engage with our players in new and different ways, the Virginia Lottery is fulfilling its mission of raising funds for K-12 education in the Commonwealth.”

Kevin Hall, Virginia Lottery Executive Director

The first time Keno was offered by a U.S. Lottery was in 1991. Since then, it has become available in 21 states including each state surrounding Virginia. It accounts for more than $4 billion in annual sales across the country.

The Virginia Lottery says the odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 8,911,711. Overall odds of winning a prize range from 1 in 2.8 to 1 in 16.6, depending on how people choose to play.

Like all Virginia Lottery games, you must be 18 years of age or older to play.
