More than the Games https://www.morethanthegames.com Online Games, Casino Bonus & more Sun, 14 Oct 2018 20:40:30 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.9.8 Types Of Keno Games And Bets https://www.morethanthegames.com/types-of-keno-games-and-bets/ Thu, 12 Nov 2015 14:27:11 +0000 https://morethanthegames.com/?p=233 In Keno, winning has no correlation with the amount of money bet. Even with a bet of only a dollar, a player could win a large amount of money, exceeding $1,000. So the game is taken up by younger gamblers. However, keno betting could turn out to be more complex than simply selecting a few numbers. A more exotic bet increase your chance to win.

Keno Games

Types of bets in keno

  • Standard bet: The player marks a number set on keno ticket. The bet is simple as the player hopes that these numbers will be called up.
  • Way bets: The player bets on several number groups within the same game. Assorted number combinations must be selected from preferred number groups. The bet could be tricky and players find it harder to to track the selections they have made earlier. The main advantage of Way Bets is that they provide an advantage not provided by Standard Bets – the player can win a lot of small amounts at consistently quicker rates.
  • Split Bets: The player can mark numerous numbers’ groups within same keno game. In case of Split Bets, of the player bet $4 on each group, the total bet would be $8.
  • Combinations bets and king numbers: In such a case, different Standard Bets are combined in one game with contrasting styles. Each of the combination bets costs a total betting unit. The bet termed King Keno is a combination of bets with twist. It asks you to select one or multiple selected numbers so that they can be king numbers.

Winning

The player should regularly review the bets to improve the chances of winning at keno. The main advantages of online keno are that the percentages of payout are much higher compared to casinos located in land. There are a number of opportunities to win huge jackpots as well.

Bwin Agrees to NetEnt games https://www.morethanthegames.com/bwin-agrees-to-netent-games/ Thu, 30 Apr 2015 07:30:48 +0000 https://morethanthegames.com/?p=199 Gambling industry giant Bwin.party made an announcement stating that from now on they would be providing games being created by Swedish casino tech company Net Entertainment. Both companies had initiated the deal in 2014.

First time Bwin.party choosing to use third party games

BwinThis is the first time that Bwin.party has chosen to use a third party developer’s games. Bwin.party almost exclusively used to offer in-house games developed for them. Using this approach the company would dedicate funds to other parts of the company.

Being one of the few gaming companies to offer exclusively developed in-house games in the past, Bwin.party has been unable to keep up the rate and frequency of newly desired games by the market and has fallen behind on the times. Constantly developing and producing new games takes up a large amount of resources and manpower.

Using third party developer games, Bwin.party will have the chance to refresh its array of games at a small fraction of the cost needed to create new in-house games.

Impressive line up

According to Bwin.party group director Golan Shaked, they have been extremely impressed with NetEnt’s content catalogue as well as the graphic quality of their work. Bwin.party embarked upon a journey to enhance their offerings by choosing to focus on upgrading their content and gaming platform.

Bwin.party is one of the biggest online gambling companies in the industry. During recent times, the company experienced very little growth and expansion. Misappropriation and misallocation of resources and investments were to blame for the company’s state of affairs.

Net Entertainment is one of the biggest casino technology developers. The company is known for its high quality games with innovative features and sleek, cutting-edge graphics.
