Carolina Keno players get to choose the prize they want to play for. Here's how it works:

  • For each drawing, 20 numbers out of 80 possible are selected as winning numbers.
  • Players choose how many numbers, or spots, they want to try and match. The number of spots you play and match determines how much you win.
  • The price is determined by the player. You can buy a single drawing for $1, $2, $3, $5, or $10.
  • Prizes range from $1 to $1 million. Every additional dollar played multiplies the potential winning prize amount. For example, buying a $1 ticket for 10 spots could win you $100,000 if you match all ten spots or buying a $10 ticket for 10 spots could win you $1 million if you match 10 spots.

More than 680 businesses in our state will offer the game.

You must be 18 years old to play. Keno retailers are responsible for checking IDs.
