Keno, as played in casinos and in bars and restaurants across Michigan, is a descendant of an ancient Chinese game and an ancestor of Powerball and similar lotteries.  In this talk, we shall look at the combinatorial mathematics behind keno and other lottery games and detour--briefly--into the world of integer programming to examine some tricky questions behind what appear to be very simple games.
