1/6 (1/36+2/36+2/36+1/36) and an average of 150 ((10*30+5*15+5*15+5*30)/4). Note this is average pay, disregarding frequency.

You're aware that 'horn high 12' is equivalent to 5 on 2/3/11 and 10 on 12, right? (And further, identical to hopping them manually.)

1 in 6

rolls on average,

in other words
as often as the 7
as often as the Horn
as often as a 4 or a 10

What does a $25 Horn High 12 pay?

well, depends on what rolls and how the casino pays it.
there is $5 on the 2,3 and 11
$10 on the 12.

it is really one bet split between 4 different bets.
I have seen this bet made only in units of 5 also

a super HIGH house edge too!

Horn bet:

when exactly is it a bad bet?
when it does NOT win
or
when it actually wins?

I saw that bet win 6 times in a row
for one lucky player.

craps is all about
luck
unless one thinks the shooter has something to do with the dice outcome...
like a blind Gorilla tossing the bones for a banana or two

that Gorilla (call him Stud Boy)
has long rolls and short ones too

really

12 pays $285, still up to win. Make sure you are not on a short pay table such as Caesars paying 30 for 1. Aces pay $130. Ace Deuce and yo pay $55

DeMango, do you actually make this bet or is it that you simply are good at math and know this stuff?

A horn hi ace deuce is the only logical bet to make on the comeout, if one wishes to hedge. The don't player might wish to go horn hi yo. Lesser amounts of money to hedge is always better, an 11/12 for the DP, any craps for PL. But in the long run they all suck profit.

I wish someone would explain to me the logic behind "High, Low, Yo" . What does it do beside sound good coming out of your mouth? Probably something to do with the spirit of stupid!

The hi-low yo is a great bet if you just add three pips to the '2' with a sharpie.

Otherwise awful bets if you play them every roll. Fine for giggles. Odds are still much better than a scratch-n-win. About the same as a terrible slot. Or a completely ineffective Video Poker player.

In otherwords if given $5 and be told, play the horn high (whatever) or take this $5 Crossword/Bingo scratch ticket, I'd take the horn-high every time.
