The largest operator of Las Vegas-style keno in the United States isn't on the coasts, it's in America's heartland. Since founding Big Red Keno in 1991, Greg Erwin has built the company up from a single Omaha location to four Big Red Restaurant & Sports Bars. Live ball draws at those restaurants are broadcast to more than 240 locations in eastern Nebraska. People can win big at live ball draw keno in Omaha, Lincoln, Fremont or Norfolk; and they can play along at local bars and restaurants in Beatrice, Bennington, Blair, Hadar, Kennard, and Valley.
Big Red Keno has given more than $207 million in net, non-taxed revenue to Nebraska state and local governments through 2015. Henry Doorly Zoo, Nebraska Humane Society, YWCA, Heartland Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the Nebraska Council on Compulsive Gambling are just a few of the organizations that benefit from Big Red Keno.
