This frequently asked questions (FAQs) page contains answers to commonly raised questions in relation to Keno.
Essentially all Keno games are the random drawing of a set of numbers from a larger pool of numbers. The lottery game authorised by, and conducted by, Intralot under the lotteries licence is drawn on a daily basis (drawn once a day at 8pm) and is part of the suite of lottery games authorised by that licence. It is only available at Intralot outlets.
The Keno game in venues, which Tabcorp Investments No.5 Pty Ltd is authorised to conduct and distribute, takes the form of a rapid draw lottery, the outcome of which is determined by a random number generator drawing a set of numbers from a larger set of numbers. Following the game, the numbers are posted electronically in venues.
The Gambling Regulation Act 2003 requires that the return to player from Keno must be no less than 75 per cent of ticket sales.
Under the Keno licence, no less than 75 per cent of the total amount of ticket sales is required to be returned to the players as prizes.
Of the remainder of player expenditure, the State and Commonwealth Governments receive a total of 33.33 per cent of that remainder (including GST) and the remaining amount is subject to arrangements between those parties.
