I'm really confused about the Horn High bets. The other night, there was a guy who had $100 on the Horn High 2, $100 on the E, $100 on the world and it looked like a 11 rolled and he was paid. When the dealers paid him, they only left up the horn high 2 but pushed the $100 on the e and $100 on the world back to the box person. I'm guessing a 11 rolled because it was during the come out roll and the pass line was paid and so was a field. I was wondering if they pushed the $100 on the e and $100 on the world to the box is if the guy didn't want it played on the next roll.

I was trying to figure out the payout but was so confused with it and how they got it for a $100 horn high 2, $100 E and $100 world and the roll rolled.

$100 Horn High 2 has $20 on the eleven. Win the $20 at 15:1 and lose the $80 that was on other numbers.
$100 World bet has $20 on the eleven. Same as above.
$100 yo (assume thatís what E means) is $100 on the eleven. Pays 15:1.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

$100 Horn high 2 ($20 each on 3, 11, 12, and $40 on 2)
$100 Eleven ($100)
$100 World ($20 each on 2,3,7,11,12)

So the player had $140 in action on the next roll being an 11 (paying 15:1), and $160 on the next roll being something else.
When 11 hit, The dealers would collect the $160 and pay $2100 in winnings + the original bet of $140 for a total of $2240.
Typically, each of the three bets is resolved individually, since there are often more than one player getting paid. Also, the player may have had a line bet that needed to be paid as well.

I suspect there is more to the story than $200 being pushed to the Box. It is an unusual move since the dealer could simply put an "Off" lammer on the chips if the player wanted to be off for a roll. What happened to those chips after the Box got them? Was the player coloring up, or paying back a marker? Did the dealer have to get a refill of his/her working stack to pay that side of the table, and was now sending chips back? Perhaps it was a tip "for the boys"?

Edit: Could it have been some "hopping" bets for the next roll? Those usually go to the Box.
