The Allures of Keno Accounts

Keno, coming from its advocates, has started in China from Cheung Leung. Old tales of Chinese citizens say there was a war existing at Cheung’s residence and financial resources were limited. The city has refused to provide financial resource to the people and soldiers for the orders coming from the government. In the process of raising money for the army, Leung established the game called “Keno.” With the funds that erupted from Keno games, it aided during the course of war and successfully defeated the enemy.

The Keno game came from an ancient literature called, “Thousand Character Classic.” The old literature has described several characters rhyming, which were utilized for providing knowledge to children who cannot understand the Chinese language. From this literature, Leung used one hundred twenty characters placed on the board layout. Wage placement happen after throwing of characters. From that time, players are allowed ten wages and spot each wage through utilization of pen with quill ink.

The terms “Keno Spots” depict the marks left at the board by the quill ink. Surprisingly, the names from the old literature poem are very uncommon such as “Cloud,” “Dew,” “Stupid,” and “Loser.” However, it became uncertain as to the manner players decide on the terms “Stupid” and “Loser.” This pulled enjoyment and thrill to Keno players. Some of the narrations have distinguished the segregation of Keno cards with the prints embodying Yin and Yang of Chinese culture that means good and bad. This keno pattern exemplifies the interesting aspects of playing it.

Keno’s accounts denotes of the game’s exploration on other places outside Asia. One of its travels demonstrated reaching America. The arrival of Keno in America brought by the Chinese citizens who built the railroads increased the fame of the game. Among these citizens, the popularity of Keno has inflated although there was a threat to its existence. Most often, the Chinese citizens are living at the boundaries of San Francisco where Keno had thrived and flourished. After hours and hours of work, the Chinese citizens resolve to Keno as their leisure activity and because there were similarities between lottery and Keno, Americans called it, the Chinese lottery. Those Keno players that were not Chinese, there is much difficulty playing Keno because of its unfamiliar characters. For the Americans to engage in playing, changes were made to its characters so it would become comprehensible for other nationalities. This started the popularity of Keno in United States.
