Some Lucky Keno Players will win Double Prizes August 10-23
The Kansas Lottery is once again giving its players a chance to
double their Keno prizes for a limited time only! From August 10
through August 23, some Keno tickets will
be designated KENO
DOUBLER tickets. Prizes won on these KENO DOUBLER tickets will
be doubled. (Some exceptions apply.*)
A player will know if he or she has a KENO DOUBLER ticket
because it will have a message on it identifying it as a KENO
DOUBLER ticket. Additionally, special music will play on the
lottery terminal when a KENO DOUBLER ticket is printed.
KENO DOUBLER tickets will automatically be generated each time a
predetermined number of tickets are printed. To have a chance of
receiving a KENO DOUBLER ticket, players must purchase Keno tickets
between the beginning of business August 10 (5 a.m.) and the close
of business on August 23 (2 a.m. August 24). Bull's-Eye and
multi-draw purchases will be included in the promotion.
The first time the Kansas Lottery conducted a KENO DOUBLER
promotion was March 12-23, 2014. During that promotion, more than
2,400 Keno prizes were doubled, totaling more than $37,000.

every 4 minutes. Players have a great deal of flexibility in the
game - choosing how many "Spots" to play, amount of the wager and
number of consecutive games. They also have the option of playing
Bull's-eye, giving them a chance to win larger prizes. How to Play Keno.
