Online Craps Horn Bet
One of the bets that can be played in online craps is the horn
bet. What is exactly is a horn bet and is there value in playing
The horn bet is basically just another prop bet that can be made
while playing online craps. A horn bet is split between the numbers
2, 3, 11 or 12. It is a bet that is just a one roll bet as it
will be paid off following the next roll of the dice. If you wanted
to play a dollar on each of the numbers then you would make a
four dollar horn bet. If one of the numbers comes up on the next
roll then you are a winner. The 2 and the 12 pay 30-1 while the
3 and the 11 pay 15-1.
You can decide to put any amount you want on the horn bet but
most people choose the $4 option so they get a $1 on each number
or they choose the $5 bet and double up on one number. There is
the horn high which means a double up on the number of 11 and
the horn low which has a double up on the number of three.
The bad news about the horn bet is that it has a high house advantage.
The house edge is more than 12% which means it is not a good wager
for the player. It really should only be played for fun or if
you just happen to have a very strong feeling about one of those
numbers coming up on the next roll.
