Many players who access online casinos will appreciate the offering of classic card and table games. Most of the operating casinos that cater to Canadian players will offer Craps as a game option. This game is fun and exciting and with the many different bets that can be placed, it is a game that can entertain players for hours. With craps, it is important for players to be aware of the multiple betting options before they start playing for real money. Here, we discuss the Horn Bet, a bet that is not as common at the table, but is one that can be quite beneficial to the real money player.
Horn bets are typically placed by experienced players and they are one roll bets. This bet does not always have to be placed at the start of the game. It can be placed at any time before the dice are rolled. The outcome of the bet will be determined after a single roll of the dice and the regular horn bet will be placed in multiples of four. The amount of the bet placed will be divided and placed on the 2, 3, 11 and 12. There is also the horn high bet, which uses five bets instead of four. While it may sound confusing, it is rather simple. Let’s say the player bet $20 on a horn bet, so $5 will be placed on each of the numbers. If one of those numbers win, the other three will lose. However, the winning number will offer a payout of the bet amount times 15, so for the $20 complete bet, one number will offer a $75 payout. However, $15 has been lost on the losing numbers, so the total win is really just $50.
The house edge of the horn bet is rather high, coming in at 16.66%. This is one reason beginner or casual players will avoid placing this bet at the table. The payouts for the four numbers also doffer. At most casinos, the 3 and 11 will pay 15:1 and the 2 and 12 will pay 30:1, so there are some amazing payouts that can be generated from this bet. Players will win much more than with other Craps bets, but they will also be taking a higher risk due to the increased house edge.
