A man named Cheung Leung is credited for the creation of Keno. Pressed for funds to subsidize the soldiers of his town in old Chinese medieval times, Leung thought up Keno as a means to raise money for that purpose. He was successful, and from there the game spread. One of Keno old names was the 'White Pigeon Game', named after the white pigeons that delivered the winning set of numbers to participating villages. It is interesting to note that the original Keno was not based on numbers, but on "The Thousand Character Classic", and old Chinese poem. This tradition of indirect reference to numbers continued when the game was adopted in America as a result of the influence of Chinese immigrants who brought the game to the country.

Keno was also called "Chinese Lottery", because of its origins and similarity to lottery.
