Awareness and prevention
Keno is a rapid-draw game in which a set of numbers is drawn through a random number generator from a pool of numbers. The numbers are then posted electronically in venues.
Keno may be provided by cashiers or terminals. Unlike pokie machines, Keno is not restricted to the gaming areas in eligible clubs and hotels.
In Victoria, Keno is only offered by Tabcorp Investments No.5 Pty Ltd (Tabcorp) in eligible clubs, hotels and wagering outlets.
At 5 February 2014, there were 701 Keno outlets and approximately 1268 Keno terminals in Victoria located at clubs and hotels.
Between July 2013 and June 2014 a total of $15 million was lost at Keno outlets and terminals in Victoria.
