The more numbers selected, the higher the payout. However, this results in fewer chances of hitting the minimum winning combination.

Normally picking 3 spots gives you the opportunity of two winning combinations: 2 hits or 3 hits. Picking 10 spots gives you six winning combinations (5 hits, 6 hits, 7 hits, 8 hits, 9 hits and 10 hits) but results in lower chances of getting a winning combination. As per the above keno odds table, the chance of hitting a 7 out of 7 is 1 in 40,980. In percentages, it means there is 0.00244% chance of hitting 7 out of 7 numbers. Sadly, this means your chances are very slim.

Hitting an 8 spot, can payout three times more than hitting a 7 spot, but the odds are harder. This is just like hitting a 9 spot. The higher you move up, the worse the odds get. Moving downwards, also doesn’t help. Hitting a 6 spot, results in getting a payout that is approximately three times less than hitting a 7 spot. Therefore, mathematically, hitting a 7 spot offers both better odds and better payouts.
