Pokeno game

Pokeno is a game manufactured by United States Playing Card Company, the makers of Bicycle Playing Cards. This game is a combination of Poker and Keno (or Lotto) and is similar to the game Bingo in several aspects.

Gameplay

The dealer places five ranks of five squares across the board for a total of 25 squares. With another deck of cards at hand, cards are turned over one at time and each player who has a board with that playing card pictured places a poker chip or other marking device over the square. The first player to get five squares in a row is the winner.

Methods of Scoring

They are many ways to keep score in Pokeno.

Note that the boards are arranged so that each vertical and horizontal line represents a different poker hand, ranging from "straight flush" to "pair". No boards are better than others. All are intended to be balanced.
