What is keno

ABOUT KENO

Keno is the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office (PCSO)’s fastest online lottery game that involves multiple daily draws.  In every Keno draw, 20 numbers are randomly generated from the numbers 1 to 80. You can choose to play the Spot game and/or Hi & Low Game.

To win in a Spot game, your chosen numbers should match the numbers drawn. In a Hi & Low game, you choose either “Hi” or “Low”.  If you chose “Hi”, you win if 13 numbers drawn are from 41 to 80. If you chose “low”, you win if 13 numbers drawn are from 1 to 40.

Prize amounts won depend on the game option chosen (“Spot” or “Hi/Low”).  If you choose to play “hi/low”, you can win P60 for every P10 ticket.  If you choose “spot” game, you have to refer to the Keno Payout Table to determine what your P10 ticket can win.

Cash winnings can be claimed at any Keno retailer for amounts P5,000 and below.  For winnings above P5,000, you can claim the cash at any PCSO branch or main office.  P10 Million is the maximum jackpot per game and the limit to the amount of total winnings per draw is P75 million, as per PCSO charter (R.A. 1169 as amended).

You can play Keno if you are 18 years of age or older.  You can play Keno at a minimum of P10 per game to a maximum of P1,000 per play slip.

Daily Keno draws start at 7:00 am and end at 12 midnight, Monday thru Sunday.  That’s a total of 103 draws every day!

PRIZE REDEMPTION

For prizes P5,000 and below – At any Keno outlet

For prizes above P5,000 – At PCSO Branch Offices and the PCSO Main Office (PICC)

Where there are more than 10 winning columns for a match 10 in the 10-Spot Keno, P10 million will be divided by the number of winning columns. Where there are more than 10 winning columns for a Match 9 in the 9-Spot Keno, P4 million will be divided by the number of winning columns. Your share in the winning is proportional to the number of winning columns you play.

There is also a limit to the amount of total winnings per draw, which is P75 million. This is the maximum liability limit that is the theoretical computation equivalent to the maximum prize payout as mandated by PCSO Charter (R.A. 1169, as amended).
