Bonus Spot Keno is a keno variation that works similarly to traditional keno, except that
the player is paid more if the first number he picks matches a ball draw.**Rules of
Bonus Spot Keno**

- The player selects two to ten numbers from a range of one to eighty.
- The "Bonus Spot" will be the first number selected, but the player can adjust one of his other options to the Bonus Spot by pressing the button.
- The game will draw 20 numbers from 1 to 80 at random.
- The player will be compensated in part based on how many of his selected numbers fit the game's 20-ball draw.
- If the Bonus Spot matches one of the game's 20 numbers, the player will be paid according to the Bonus Spot paytable. Otherwise, he'll be charged according to the Standard paytable, which pays out the same amount for any win.
