How to Pick Hot Keno Numbers

Are your Keno numbers winning you money? Numbers that come up quite a bit in Keno are referred to as “hot”. In Keno, a player selects twenty numbers to be used and whether they come up or not will determine how much is won (or not won).

These Hot Keno Numbers have a high probability of winning thanks to the percentages of times they come up. If you can use these numbers on a regular basis, your odds of getting a favorable result should go up. Read on to find out how you can develop this strategy and begin using it when you play Keno to improve your odds of winning.

How to Pick Hot Keno Numbers

There is a theory in Keno that there are both hot and cold numbers. The point is to play the hotter numbers and leave the cold ones alone so as to maximize your chances for the best result. While there is an element of randomness, Since every number has a one in eighty chance of coming up, there’s no real way to predict what numbers will come up. There are a variety of numbers that are coming up for every play.

So when it comes to guessing, you might not be wanting to change up your numbers every time just so you can ‘predict’ what’s going to come up. If you’re going to play more than once, the numbers that you played that didn’t come up are statistically more likely to come up again. You might want to stick with the same numbers because the odds are that the winning combination will come up if a lot of your numbers were not selected previously.

You can also go to an online site in your state that will actually list the hotter or colder numbers being played. They can give you the current hottest ten numbers and the coldest ten numbers that are not doing well for the day as well as what percentage they are coming up or not appearing. For instance, the number 70 may be listed as doing well and winning 60% of the time. So if you want to incorporate the official hot numbers of the day into your playing, it’s not a half bad strategy.

Another good strategy for the hot number is to use a delta number calculation. The base number selected works as a guide, so select a single-digit number. Try to pick something that hasn’t been called. You can add seven to that number to take advantage of the frequent gap between numbers until you go up to twenty numbers. So if you pick 8, it would be 8, then 15, then 23, and so on, enough to take advantage of the randomness.

Statistics also show that 5-8 numbers from the previous extraction will come up again. So you may want to repeat 10 numbers out of say, 20, on your next ticket or just keep them all. At the end of the day, Keno is a game of chance. Hot numbers are often limited to the short-term as the numbers are picked randomly by an electronic machine. Ultimately, what numbers come up in Keno are going to be beyond your control. But by observing patterns, checking the hot numbers of the day, and a little bit of luck, you may be able to turn the odds in your favor.
