How To Pick My Choice Of Keno Numbers In Australia

Article Picture

When playing Keno in Australia, you are given the choice to pick your own Keno numbers.

Keno games can be played at the nearest lottery retailer in Australia. You can play Keno Classic, Keno Bonus, Keno Mega Millions, Keno Kwikpick, Keno Heads or Tails, and Keno Advanced.

Remember, residents living in Queensland and New South Wales cannot play Keno online due to restrictions on Keno’s current state license. You can play Keno online like pokies at online casinos.

Download the Keno App and tap ‘Sign Up’ to open a Keno online account. To open a Keno account, you must be a resident of NSW and 18 years or older.

How do I choose Keno numbers?

  • To pick your Keno numbers in Australia, go to on your mobile.
  • Click on my keno numbers.
  • A short quiz will be prompted on the screen, and you will be ready for the quiz.
  • Before that, you must enter your name and address and the state of Australia where you live.
  • Click on confirm when done.
  • Click on Take the Quiz on the next screen.

There will be two options that will ask you:

1. Would you rather have a bigger chance at a small prize


2. A smaller chance at a big prize.

Suppose you select A bigger chance at a small prize.

Then, you can select one number from 1 to 6 for a bigger chance at a small prize.

All the numbers have their specific winning prize.

  • Number 1 could win $3
  • Number 2 could win $12
  • Number 3 could win $44
  • Number 4 could win $120
  • Number 5 could win $640
  • Number 6 could win $1800

If you select A bigger chance at a small prize, you will be prompted to select one lucky number between numbers 7 and 10 for a smaller chance at a bigger prize.

  • Number 7 could win $5000+
  • Number 8 could win $25000+
  • Number 9 could win $100000 +
  • Number 10 could win $1000000+

After you select a number, there will be a set of questions based on your personal life or things such as what your favourite number is, how many years you lived in your first house, and so on. After you have given all the answers, you will know which are your lucky numbers to pick or choose to play Keno.

When you tap on next, you will be shown a ticket. You must fill out this ticket at your nearest retailer to play your keno numbers.

You can even download this ticket if you want.

Whatever state of Australia you play keno in, with the introduction of jackpot pooling, the Keno Classic 7, 8, 9, and 10 spot jackpots are pooled nationally.

Also, with the introduction of jackpot pooling, the Keno Mega Millions 7, 8, 9, and 10 spot jackpots are pooled nationally, so the prizes are the same.
