Keno, gambling game played with cards (tickets) bearing numbers in squares, usually from 1 to 80.

A player marks or circles as many of these numbers as he wishes up to the permitted maximum, after which he hands in, or registers, his ticket and pays according to how many numbers he selected.

Keno arrived in the western United States in the 1840s with Chinese immigrants.

About the beginning of the 20th century, the game gained popularity among non-Chinese groups in the United States under the name Chinese lottery, in which the characters were converted to numbers.

At that time it also acquired the name keno, a corruption of the French word Race-Horse Keno, with names of horses instead of numbers on the tickets so as not to conflict with state laws concerning lotteries.
