Monkey Keno Online Game by Microgaming Review
Monkey Keno is a game by Microgaming that uses a game board marked by a grid with numbers ranging from 1 to 80, as in most traditional games of Keno. 15 numbers may be selected on the board before a monkey throws 20 coconuts on to the board landing on 20 numbers themselves selected by a digital random numbers generator. If a coconut lands on one of the previously selected numbers this is termed a 'hit', the more hits per round the greater the opportunity to produce more prizes.
How to Play
First select the amount you wish to bet before selecting up to 15 numbers on the board by clicking on each of the desired numbers. If you wish to change your mind, you can do this before the round begins by simply unchecking the selected numbers. Finally, press the 'Play' button to begin the round at which point the monkey will start hurling coconuts at the board to mark the numbers selected by the digital random numbers generator.
Two panels of numbers marked 'Hot Numbers' and 'Colds Numbers' are displayed on the left side of the screen, in which there are 10 numbers listed on each panel, the hot numbers indicate the top ten numbers in terms of frequency of having been randomly drawn, whereas cold numbers are those which have been drawn the least frequently as compared to the other 70 numbers.
By clicking on the 'Hot Numbers' or 'Cold Numbers' section, all the numbers in the box you have chosen will be selected as a selection of numbers for the next draw.
The Quick Pick button: Quickly and randomly selects different numbers for you. The number of numbers that will be selected will be the same ws was used in the previous game.
The Skip button: By clicking on this button you can quickly view the results of the numbers drawn as against those selected, thereby skipping the animation to speed up the game.
The AutoPlay button: This button allows you to select a predetermined number of games to play, or simply play until you decide to end or halt the game by pressing the Autoplay button again.
