Game Review – Michigan Lottery’s Winter Keno

Quick Review

Quite appropriate for the sudden drop in temperatures, the Michigan Lottery recently released the online instant game Winter Keno.

The Michigan Lottery’s Winter Keno Game

We’re predicting this game will be a new favorite among the sizable Keno crowd, especially Instant Keno players as the game appears to be a close clone (same pay table with a new skin).  Like Instant Keno it shares all the classic game features that have made that game a perennial favorite, plus now with a skip button to speed up play.

Full Review

How to Play

  • Select a Ticket Price

  • Select the Numbers on the game board (that you would like to play)

You can play anywhere from 1 to 10 numbers per round.

  • Alternatively, you can use the Random Button for any easy pick of 1 to 10 numbers

  • Click the Play Button to make a purchase and launch the game

At which point the game will release 20 random chosen balls onto the game board.

  • Additionally, you can modify the game speed

by using the Fast Play button, or get right to the result with the Skip button

How to Win

The Prize Table changes based on the number of spots (game board numbers) that you select and the ticket price chosen.

This is the Max Number (10), Max Ticket Price ($20) Prize Table:

Max Number, Max Ticket Price Prize Table for Winter Keno

And this is the $1 Ticket Price Prize Table across all number combinations (from the rules documentation):

To find the prize for other ticket prizes, multiply the prize shown by the ticket price.  [So a 10 Ball Match for a $20 ticket is $10,000 x $20 = $200,000 the Maximum Top Prize].

Player Strategy

As a game of luck, I don’t know of a system to increase your winning percentage.

But you do have control over the ticket price, so you can increase your ticket price to go bigger or decrease your ticket price to slow things down.

Winter Keno 5 Ball Win

Winter Keno offers a lot play options so you can fine tune your play experience:

  • If you are looking for max payback you’ll probably choose the Pick 10 Game (at 87.9%),
  • But this payback also comes with max variability (standard deviation of 9.204) so you will generally get the wildest ride.  Wild rides can be good if you are trying to catch a big win in a short play session.  The smoother rides come in the 1, 2, and 3 pick games with standard deviations of 1.516, 1.867, and 1.387 respectively)
  • If you like to see the most wins, your best shot looks to be the Pick 3 game (with a win percentage of over 58%)

Final Words

Hopefully Winter Keno is good to you this Holiday Season!

Good Luck!!

Game Review – Michigan Lottery’s Treetop Treasures

Quick Review

The Michigan Lottery’s Treetop Treasures is an enjoyable symbol match game with a fun theme.

The Michigan Lottery's Treetop Treasures Game
The Michigan Lottery’s Treetop Treasures Game

The standout feature of the game is the Plinko style Fruit Fall Bonus Game.  The falling fruit bounces around on its way to multiplier, fruit, or strike buckets – very fun and suspenseful.

Treetop Adventures is a great example of how far the graphics have improved in recent Michigan Lottery game releases.  While the main game play is similar to a HIT or VIP Black the graphics are much better.

Game Review – Michigan Lottery’s Volcano!

Quick Review

The Michigan Lottery’s new online instant game Volcano! is not without risk.  There is the obvious danger of the volcano.  But to me the masked creatures that live in the volcano seem even more ominous.

Volcano Game Michigan Lottery
The Michigan Lottery’s Volcano! Game

But perhaps with great risk comes great reward.  The game offers some large prizes and some interesting play including a number of bonus games.

Volcano reminds me a lot of Cash Buster Extreme which offers a less frightening theme but the same basic game play.  In fact I believe the pay tables are identical, so the games are probably clones of each other with different skins.

so you win the total from the extra reveal game and your original game board.

Note: It looks like the extra reveal game board will win only a percentage of the time.

Collect Enough Stars

  • 3 Stars wins 20x the Ticket Cost ($40 at max ticket price)

Fruity Cubes Fruit Squeeze Bonus Game
Fruity Cubes Fruit Squeeze Bonus Game

In the Fruit Squeeze Bonus Game you select fruit stars one at a time and each revealed star fills up one level (of four levels) of the corresponding fruit cup.  When one of the fruit cups is fully filled – you win the total multiplier at the top of the cup.

In this game that I played, I revealed a BOOST symbol on the final turn.  A Boost symbol fills up all the glasses one level, so I scored both the strawberry and lemon multipliers for a combined win of $1,050.

Player Strategy

As a game of luck, I don’t know of a system to increase your winning percentage.

But you do have control over the ticket price and the number of tickets played, so you can increase your ticket price or tickets per round to go bigger or decrease them to slow things down.

Fruity Cubes Double Winner!
