I'd just like to quickly point out to anyone that might not be aware of this, but Keno is one of the worst gambling games you can play in terms of the "house edge". The factor/amount of this house edge can vary based on the payout structure, but THE BEST you could hope for would be around 25% or so. This means that for every dollar you play, you will lose $0.25 in the long run. Why does Ted Strickland want us to lose so much money? Compare this whopping 25% house edge to any other casino game and you will see it is the worst bet in the house. Why can't we instead have a game like video poker where the house edge is as low as 0.46% (yes, that is about 50 times less of a house edge than keno). If you've ever been to a casino that offers keno, you will have noticed employees roaming the floor calling out "keno!" trying to promote the game and sell tickets for it. This of course is because the casino knows they have the biggest edge in this game and want to get as many people playing it as possible. You are right about one thing Mr. Strickland, keno is different from other types of gambling; it's far far worse! Please don't treat us like degenerate droolers that will gladly pour money into one of the worst gambling games there is when we know we have better options.
I urge you to take a quick look at the link below and see for yourself just how bad keno is
