How to play Belgium Keno?
Belgium Keno lottery costs just one euro for one set of numbers. At one time, you can choose 1, 2, 4, 6 or 12 draws. The lottery gives you the opportunity to choose numbers from the pool from 1 to 70. The numbers can be chosen manually, if you use your intuition or developed some tactics. However, if you are a beginner or do not have too much time to circle the numbers, you can decide to choose the quick option.
It means that it is a computer that decides for you and generates a random set of numbers. Contrary to other games, Belgium Keno gives you an extra option that is much faster. This option is known as Keno 5 Package. A computer chooses 5 random game combinations for a player, and for a 5 euro bet you can play in 5 nets with 6, 7, 8, 9 or 10 numbers, respectively. You can take part in the game not only at a sales point, but also on the phone or via the Internet.
You should remember that the purchased ticket is the only proof of a possible prize. Without it, you cannot collect your money. That is why it is so important that the ticket is always kept in a safe place. What’s more, it’s best to sign it on its back. The money is issued to the holder of the ticket, so signing it will protect you against possible theft of the ticket.
For the sake of transparency, the draw is always broadcast live on TV, so that everyone who took part in it and all the interested individuals could watch it. The results of the draw in Belgium in Keno are published in La Une newspaper. It is also possible to check the results directly at the official website of Belgium Keno.
What to do if I win?
