Horn Bets In Craps Tables

Anyone who has had the chance to play craps might acknowledge that Horn bets make craps even more enjoyable. Most enthusiast commence with a simple pass line bet. Here the house edge is as small as 1.41 %. When played, a pass line bet can win if 7 or 11 are rolled on the first attempt. A player can also lose if 2, 3, or 12 are tossed on the first attempt. If 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, or 10 total the results of a die roll, then a 'point' is established and the game is in serious limbo. To win in this case, the player has to roll that number again before the number 7 comes up on the die.

However, a player does not have to place a pass line bet for him or her to play at a craps table. If you do not pass bet to hit or get bored or impatient waiting for your pass, then there are a number of other places to put your chips.

Horn and Proposition Bets

Being a fast action game, craps tables have a stickman charged with the responsibility of drawing you with proposition bets. A prop bet is one that has only one roll. The player is required to either hit the bet on the next roll or lose entirely. This is all determined by your game odds. Although most authorities recommend that you stay away from prop bets because the house edge is quite high, I do not. These kinds of craps horn bets add excitement to the game.

"Anybody on eleven," that is the question the stickman ask when he wants you to toss a chip for the next play coming up an eleven. If it rolls, you get paid 15 for 1 or 15 to 1. This is a great payout bearing in mind that the bets are as low as a dollar. Therefore, although the house holds an 11.11 percent edge, playing $1 bets could ensure that you make profits while leveraging very little. This is the fun part.
