Horn High

There are four different Horn High’s that all bet the same numbers as the Horn. They are the Horn High Yo, Horn High Ace Deuce, Horn High Aces, and the Horn High Twelve. The difference is you are adding a higher amount of money to one of those bets; the Aces, Aces Deuce, Twelve, or the Yo in order to determine which Horn High you’re betting. The Horn High is a one-roll bet and it must be bet in increments of five dollars.

Four Different Horn High's

If you bet a four-dollar Horn then took another dollar and added it to the Yo then you would be betting a Horn High Yo. At the same time if you took that extra dollar and put it on the Twelve you would be betting a Horn High Twelve. I presume the Horn High was created in order to make betting simpler. Betting four dollars requires either splashing four (4) dollar chips or betting a five-dollar chip then having the stickperson tell the base dealer to give a dollar change. Either way, it’s easier to make a five-dollar bet.

You can show a $5 Horn High Yo broken up two different ways: With all the money separated by their respective bets or as a $4 Horn with an extra dollar on the Yo.

Placement of the Horn High

For the most part, all of the Horn Highs are separated into two sections: the left side of the table and the right side of the table. If two players from the same side of the table bet the same Horn High we wouldn’t even be able to fit both chips in the box. There isn’t enough room for them both so we would have to go over the edges or put the edge of one chip on top of the other. Whatever we need to do in order to get an understanding of where the bets should be.

What does the Horn High Pay

The Horn High’s are some of the most confusing bets to pay on a Craps table. There are only four payments you need to know in order to pay all the bets but it’s knowing when to apply each of those four numbers that makes paying them so difficult. You need to understand a few things before you’ll be able to figure out the payments of the Horn Highs right off the bat.

  1. Directly – means the Horn High that you bet is the number that rolled. I.e. you bet the Horn High Twelve and the Twelve rolled or you bet the Horn High Ace Deuce and the Ace Deuce That is a direct hit.
  2. Indirectly – means one of the other numbers rolled. I.e. you bet the Horn High Aces and the Twelve rolled or you bet the Horn High Yo and the Aces Those are indirect hits.
  3. The Horn High Aces and the Horn High Twelve pay the exact same when they hit directly or indirectly because both the Aces and the Twelve pay 30 to 1. They are both considered the high side.
  4. The Horn High Ace Deuce and the Horn High Yo pay the exact same when they hit directly or indirectly because both the Ace Deuce and the Yo pay 15 to 1. They are both considered the low side.

$5 Horn High Aces and Horn High Twelve

There are three possible outcomes when you have to pay both the Horn High Aces and the Horn High Twelve.

  1. The bet hits directly.
  2. The opposite high side number is rolled. I.e. you bet the Horn High Aces and the Twelve rolled.
  3. The low side rolled. I.e. you bet the Horn High Twelve and the Ace Deuce or Yo rolled. Ace Deuce and Yo are the low side numbers.

The Bet Hits Directly

A $5 Horn High Aces has $2 on the Aces and $1 on the other three numbers. If the Aces rolled it would win $60 ($2 x 30) minus $3 (the other losing bets – $1 on each the Twelve, Ace Deuce, and Yo) for a payment of $57.

The Opposite High Side Rolled

A $5 Horn High Twelve has $2 on the Twelve and $1 on the other three numbers. If the opposite high side rolled, the Aces, it would win $30 ($1 x 30) minus $4 (the other losing bets – $2 on the Twelve and $1 on each the Aces Deuce and Yo) for a payment of $26.

The Low Side Rolled

A $5 Horn High Aces has $2 on the Aces and $1 on the other three numbers. If an Ace Deuce rolled it would win $15 ($1 x 15) minus $4 (the other losing bets – $2 on the Twelve and $1 each on the Aces and Yo) for a payment of $11. Since the Yo pays the same as the Ace Deuce, if their places were switched, the end payment ($11) would still be the same.

  3. The high side rolled. I.e. you bet the Horn High Ace Deuce and the Aces or Twelve rolled. Aces and Twelve are the high side numbers.

The Bet Hits Directly

A $5 Horn High Yo has $2 on the Yo and $1 on the other three numbers. If the Yo rolled it would win $30 ($2 x 15) minus $3 (the other losing bets – $1 on each the Ace Deuce, Aces, and Twelve) for a payment of $27.

Betting the Horn High's for the Dealers

It’s always best for the dealers to have a proper bet made for them. $5 is a proper bet for the Horn High so that would be the best-case scenario. Dealers would appreciate any bet you give them so if you bet $1 on any Horn High they would appreciate it. That bet would just give a couple pennies, nickels, dimes, and/or quarters back to the casino which wouldn’t be in the best interest of the dealers paycheck. A Horn High bet for the dealers would go right in the middle of the box.
