Keno, as played in casinos, is a descendant of an ancient Chinese game and an ancestor of Powerball and similar lotteries. In this talk, we shall look at the combinatorial mathematics behind keno and lotteries and detour--briefly--into the world of integer programming to examine some tricky questions behind what appear to be very simple games.
