Work at the Keno Booth – This tactic worked for some employees at Blue Springs Keno in Nebraska a few years ago. After each drawing, they would set aside the last wining ball and place a single-number wager on it. Then, during the next drawing, they would make it appear as though this ball had turned up as a winner once again. They won $1000 each time they successfully pulled this trick, but they were eventually caught in the act and charged with violation of the lottery act, felony theft, and using a lottery device for cheating.
Fake Keno Tickets – Each time you play at a land-based casino, you’re given a ticket that includes the numbers you’ve selected. Once the drawing occurs, you can take this ticket back to the keno booth and collect your winnings. But what if you could find a way to create fake tickets? In the scenario, you could wait until the winning numbers are drawn and then create a receipt that matches the results you desire. If it were easy, however, you can bet that someone would have done it by now (unless, of course, they’ve never been caught).
Design the Machine – The electronic version of keno is impossible to cheat at due to the presence of a random number generator. However, this software is designed by a human, so developing an expertise in the field might allow you to obtain a job at a firm that makes electronic keno games for casinos. Once you rose to the position of programmer, you would be in a position to tamper with the machines. Perhaps you could program the device to deliver a specific 20-digit set of numbers when the machine’s buttons were pressed in a specific fashion. This might be impossible, but it’s the kind of thing that would work in a Hollywood movie.
Pull Off a Movie Caper – When handsome thieves team up in a heist film, there’s no limit to what they can accomplish. If you happen to look like Brad Pitt or George Clooney, I suggest assembling a dream team of lovable rogues to hit the keno games at some of biggest casinos in Las Vegas.
You’ll probably need an acrobat, someone who’s good at lying, a sexy female accomplice, and an older associate who’s enemies with a local Vegas casino owner. I don’t know what the plan would entail, but I’m betting it would involve comedy, a little romance, and several narrow escapes. Perhaps each keno ball could be filled with different amounts of tiny metal shavings, and then a powerful magnet could be fine-tuned to pull up specific balls during the drawing. In the end, you and your pals would get away with the loot while your nemesis would look like a fool. If you’re lucky, you might even get the girl.
As you may have noticed, learning how to cheat at keno requires a certain level of imagination. Considering the vast sums of money on the line, this shouldn’t come as a great surprise. If you’re serious about making a fortune from gambling, keno does provide the chance to win with a minimal investment. Unfortunately, the high odds against the player make games such as blackjack and video poker more reasonable options.
