Luck of the Bonus Keno

You think you’ve seen it all with themed keno and then along come Grand Vision Gaming and throw up another permutation. ‘Throw up’ is an apposite term here, for Luck of the Bonus Keno is a game that will cause some players to grimace at the prospect of yet another Irish-themed game, one with four-leaf clovers everywhere and all the usual memes. It’s usually video slots that get the brunt of the faux Irish luck games, but instant win games aren’t immune from the scourge. In fairness, there’s nothing wrong with any one of these games per se. Cumulatively however the effect is overwhelming and off-putting.

The load screen for Luck of the Bonus Keno by Grand Vision Gaming is very green and gold and filled with four-leaf clovers. Hit the large Play Now button and you’ll be taken to the main screen where the 10x8 board is rendered in green with numbers written in Irish lettering. Irish lettering? Yeah you know: that lettering that appears in all Irish-themed keno and instant win games. The board is surrounded by a stack of gold coins, while to the right of the reels where the paytable lies, an animation depicts more gold coins trickling into a cauldron.

Luck of the Irish

Gamblers are a superstitious bunch, and for reasons that no one can recall, the Irish have long been synonymous with luck. Playing a game like Luck of the Bonus Keno, in theory, should prove luckier to you than a regular keno game. Okay, so no one actually believes that, but you need some sort of token to hold onto, something to give you hope that the next game will be the game when all your keno numbers come in. Traditionally, keno is an 80 spot game in which 20 numbers are drawn, and that’s precisely how it plays out here.

Luck of the Bonus Keno is a fully mobile-compatible game, so it should work fine on your Android or iPhone. The game doesn’t look too shabby on desktop or tablet either, so however and wherever you want to play, you’re covered. The game’s been encoded with HTML5, so it will load fine in most web browsers including Chrome. Unlike some instant win games, it also displays in full screen on desktop, rather than simply taking up a small square that leaves acres of blank space behind it.

Green Beats Greed

Like all of the keno games that this developer releases, the fun comes after the fact. In other words, the main game of keno plays out just like keno always does. You pick your numbers and you draw your numbers. The difference is that here you have the prospect of some additional bonus symbols to hit that are more lucrative.

By default these are set to clovers, but if you’re not down with clovers, you can switch to lucky horseshoes or lucky stars instead. If you’d like to learn more about how the bonus spots work, the help guide that comes with the game explains everything. They’re described as being randomly placed on non-player-selected spots. If you succeed in hitting three of these spots you’ll win a prize.

Bonus Chance

Even if any of your numbers don’t secure a win in the base game, you can still win the the aid of the bonus symbols. When the bonus is triggered, you’ll be given three chances to select from a total of 11 multipliers. These can range from 2x to 12x. The help guide that comes with this Grand Vision Gaming release is certainly detailed. It’s just a shame that the text is so small it’s really hard to read. Luck of the Bonus Keno has an RTP of 93.54% incidentally, which is reasonable for a keno game.

Pretty Good Fun

If you can see past the twee Irishness of it all, this is actually a pretty fun keno game. It’s all very stereotypical, but then when are online casino games anything but? It’s fair to say that Ireland’s tourist board won’t be calling Grand Vision Gaming up any time soon to enlist their services to create a nuanced game about the country’s many lures. Luck of the Bonus Keno is a game that you can play for free or play for real money, though keno in demo mode is pretty pointless. You’re better off putting in some of your own money so that you at least have the chance of winning some real money in return.
