LAS VEGAS – Green Valley Ranch Resort now features live keno with the recent opening of its new Keno Lounge.

Located between the Grand Café and the Poker Room, the new Keno Lounge has 16 seats for those looking to sit in on the live action. Keno boards are also conveniently placed throughout the casino for those interested in placing their bets and enjoying the action from elsewhere. Additionally, a second keno game is available from the Grand Café, which also has its own keno runner to take diners’ bets. The Keno Lounge is open from 8 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. daily; while the café games run until 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

Green Valley Ranch Resort offers the same generous keno promotions and events as its sister Station Casinos’ keno lounges, including the 6- to 9-spot Jumbo Keno Progressive, which pays players jackpots ranging from $2,500 to $60,000 minimum. In many cases, the amounts will grow from the starting win as Station Casinos links the progressive among its properties. The new keno lounge also is a part of the Mega 10 Statewide Progressive with a jackpot at more than $1 million, and the cost to play is only $1.50.

Most games at Green Valley Ranch Resort begin at $1 on up per game. Games are offered as straight tickets, way tickets and multi-race tickets. Additionally, the new keno lounge offers a “Five and Dime Special,” which allows players to play more ways at a dime or nickel per way. If a player plays 1-9 games on a ticket, they have up to 48 hours to collect any winning. Players that play more than 10 games on a ticket have up to a year to collect any winnings.

Guests are encouraged to use their Boarding Pass card to earn free dining at Green Valley Ranch Resort, but they must first register their Boarding Pass with the Keno Lounge.

Guests that purchase multiple cards for games later in the day are also able to watch the game from their computer with “Keno on the Go” by clicking on the Green Valley Ranch Resort live game at www.sclv.com/gaming/keno, and eventually will also be able to do so from their hotel room at the resort.

The opening of the Green Valley Ranch Resort keno lounge makes it so that all Station Casinos and Fiesta properties offer live keno, with the other locations being Boulder Station, Palace Station, Red Rock Resort, Santa Fe Station, Sunset Station, Texas Station, Fiesta Henderson and Fiesta Rancho.
