Playing Maryland Keno is as easy as picking numbers and matching them…literally. Players have a field of numbers from one to eighty (1-80) in which they may choose up to ten numbers. Every four minutes a computer randomly generates twenty numbers and players win larger cash prizes by matching more numbers.
The terminology for playing keno is as follows. The numbers you play are called spots. For example, if you played a one spot keno game, you would have only picked one number. A two spot game would involve the player choosing two numbers. Three spot game players choose three numbers. And so on up to ten numbers, which would be referred to as a ten spot game.
Players who choose to play a one spot game with a one dollar wager will win two dollars if they match their number. The overall odds of winning are approximately 1:4.
Two spot players wagering one dollar have approximately 1:16 overall odds of winning. Matching both numbers pays a cash prize of ten dollars ($10).

Four spot players overall odds of winning are approximately 1:3.8. By matching two numbers, players will win one dollar ($1). Players matching three numbers will win five dollars ($5). A fifty dollar ($50) cash prize will be awarded to players who match all four numbers in a four spot game on a one dollar wager.
