There are so many online casino games around. Many of them are so popular. But online keno is not as popular as other casino games. This does not mean it came far behind many other casino games. The game too had been around for a very long time. Some people are even of the opinion that online keno has a richer history than many of the other online casino games.
China was the main origin of the game of keno. The whole idea of the game started about 2000 years ago. The man behind the origin of the game as a man named Cheung Leung. The game was invented by this man with the hope of using it to save his city. The game was played by the people of the city and much revenue was generated to save the city after the citizens refused to pay tax for the wars being fought.
History has it that the revenues generated form the game was also used in building the Great Wall of China. It was not before long that the game spread through the whole of China. It was later given the name of ‘White Pigeon Game’. It got this name considering the fact that the results of games were communicated from cities to villages through pigeons.
