Watch for your numbers on the Keno monitor, and have a great time playing with friends…every 4 minutes!
How To Play
Go to any Lottery retailer and ask for a Keno Quick Pick or pick up a game slip at any Lottery retailer and fill it out.

Play Keno To Go
Keno to Go* is a feature of the Keno game that gives you the flexibility to choose when you want to play your Keno games. You still fill out a Keno game slip or choose quick pick but you can pick the time of day you want to watch your games. Here’s how it works:
Choose the Keno to Go option and play when you want, where you want.
- Buy your tickets in advance and pick the time (the same day) you want to play.
- Watch your games on the Lottery Website from your computer, or on a Flash- enabled smart phone or at your favorite restaurant or bar.
*If Keno to Go option is not chosen, games start immediately.
Two Prize Structures to Choose From
Keno Prizes: This prize structure offers multiple-level prizes in each spot game, creating many ways to win.
Special Keno gives you the option to play for larger top prizes. You can win up to $1 million on the 10-spot game!
With this exciting feature, when you match all your numbers on a 6-,7-, or 8-spot game, you’ll also automatically win the Jackpot Bonus! Each drawing, a percentage of all statewide Keno sales are allocated to create three separate jackpots for the 6-,7- or 8-spot games. The jackpot for each game continues to grow with every drawing until someone wins! The higher the sales, the faster the jackpots grow.
*Note: Jackpot Bonus prizes will become pari-mutuel if there is more than one Jackpot Bonus winner in one game.
Multiply Your Prizes up to 10 Times!
Add the Keno Multiplier option for an extra $1 for every dollar played on your Keno ticket, and win up to 10 times the prize amount on all Keno prizes! The multiplier numbers are 1x, 2x, 5x and 10x. Rolling jackpot bonuses are not multiplied.
Keno Multiplier Frequency
The chart below shows an average of how often Keno Multiplier numbers are drawn over time. On average, the 2x through 10x multiplier numbers will be drawn 55% of the time.
*Numbers are rounded to the nearest hundredth.
$1 Million Prize
The maximum prize paid on any one Keno ticket on any one game is $1 million. The only exception is if a player wins a rolling Jackpot Bonus prize, plus a $1 million prize, they will receive both prizes.
When claiming a $1 million Keno prize, the player may choose either to have the million dollar prize paid in 25 annual installments, or a $500,000 single payment (less required federal and Oregon state tax withholding).
37 Ways to Win
The more spots you match, the more you win. You can even win by not matching any spots in a 10-spot game. All prize payouts are based on a $1 wager.

Jackpot Bonus Prizes
The amount of the Jackpot Bonus is determined by the Keno sales prior to the win. If there is more than one Jackpot Bonus winner in a particular Keno game, each winner collects the pre-set top prize for that particular game AND shares the Jackpot Bonus. The Jackpot Bonus prize will be divided equally by the number of winning shares. The more you wager, the larger your prize share.
