The largest of all casinos in the Northern Territory, Sky City Darwin are the private organization that facilitates N.T Keno. Because of this, here at the Sky City, Keno is live ball operated instead of using the normal random number generated software and computers like other Keno plays. This means that the numbers are drawn live by a human dealer and televised across the Northern Territory.
The minimum amount bet able to be placed in N.T Keno is $1, including in online Keno play offerings. The full possible 80 numbers to be drawn from are used and ‘x’ continues to mark the spot on paper ticket Keno forms or online selections. One difference with N.T Keno is that although the game can be played online, results and number drawings aren’t televised outside non-participating venues nor are available online, so remember to get your ticket checked by an operator to find out if your numbers have won.
