# "BC Lottery Keno",   Dollars lost per play

## These Calculations are based on info supplied by the BC Lottery Corporation

I have taken reasonable care in these calculations but assume no responsibility for any errors. Figures below are just my opinion.

These losses do assume you win, at the numeric odds of a win.

You may be lucky and beat these odds of losing this much, but you may also do much worse than this. Based on habits of most persons, I doubt anyone really wins over longer periods through there life.

I suggest you consider how often you play and how often you really win something worthwhile. And I don't mean just a \$2.00 win, which just edges you onward. Than consider how often you play and don't win!
