Difference between Bingo and Keno Cards

Unfortunately, in bingo you do not get to choose the number, they are generated before the play absolutely randomly. When it comes to Keno, picking numbers happens in a little different way. You get the opportunity to choose numbers (usually between one and twenty) on your own. You receive a blank card and mark the numbers and then register it for one or more game. So, you are in more control of situation when playing Keno rather than bingo.
It is all about control!
There is the same difference between bingo and Keno when it comes to betting and risking your money. There is a very little chance of losing much money when playing bingo as the cards cost a set number and there is nothing you can do about the stakes; the bets do not vary and the only factor that affects your expense is the number of cards you decide to play on each game. Now Keno gives you more freedom when it comes to betting. The players make decision on how much to place on each game and also for how many games the specific set of number will be used. Accordingly, there is more risk of losing money, but also there is a chance of winning big.
