LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky lottery players will be able to buy tickets online and play Keno, a game that holds drawings every few minutes.

The Kentucky Lottery Corp. board voted unanimously Friday to offer Keno and Internet sales as soon as possible.

Keno sales are expected to start as early as January, while Internet sales wouldn't be fully implemented until fiscal year 2015. The lottery says Keno could raise $15 million for Kentucky next year, while Internet sales could add $4.5 million in the first full year.

Lottery President and CEO Arch Gleason said he expects online sales to start with draw games such as Powerball and Mega Millions.

Keno players pick one to 10 numbers to try to match 20 numbers drawn every four to five minutes from a field of 80.
