In your example it would be placed as $5 on each. With $10 on the high.

Unless you specified it the other way, which would really be a ball busting move which they would try to discourage.

I have never seen a casino allow a horn high that was not divisible by 5.Quote:WongBoMost common if the number is divisible by five, would be to have three equal bets and one doubled up.

It keeps the math simple just as WongBo showed.

The high is always doubled up.

Just divide the bet by 5 to get the unit bet for each number

A few examples:

$35 HH3

35/5 = 7

3 has $14 and other 3 bets $7

$55 HH11

55/5 = 11

11 has $22 and other 3 bets $11

$500 HH12

500/5 = 100

12 has $200 and other 3 bets $100

In my dice dealing days, I have booked all these bets and have paid them all.

The $500 bet hit with a 12 and the high roller was a stiff, never toked.

Quote:james121515When you a horn high bet that is in increments of $5, is the amount that goes on the "high" number always $1? Or is always For example, if you do a $25 horn hi yo, is it $6 on the 2, $6on the 3, $6 on 12, and $7 on yo? Or is it $5 on 2, $5 on 3, $5 on 12, and $10 on yo?

I typically see it by default as four even bets and the smallest odd left over as the "high" (e.g. $10 Horn High as 2,2,2,4), but I have also seen it both ways when the chips move from blue to red. The stick will usually ask if the bet gets that big.

The second one is the proper bet that I have seen.Quote:james121515For example, if you do a $25 horn hi yo, is it $6 on the 2, $6on the 3, $6 on 12, and $7 on yo?

Or is it $5 on 2, $5 on 3, $5 on 12, and $10 on yo?

But one can bet exactly how you have divided up the $25 in your first example.

The stick would just place each amount on each number.

Years ago in Tunica, I watched a dealer place a $25 horn high 11 by putting $5 on the 2, 3 and 12 and $10 on the 11.

The bet lost and no one said anything about it. Seemed to me to be a lot of extra work for the dealer.

Looks good.Quote:james121515So, in general, if you do a horn high N bet of amount K, and N hits, it pays 30*2(K/5) - 3(K/5) for N = 2, 12 and 15*2(K/5) - 3(K/5) for N = 3, 11.

So, $45 horn hi ace-deuce would pay $243 if it hits, because you have $18 on the 3 and $9 on the other numbers. It would NOT pay $147, which is what I previously thought (i.e. having $11 on 2, 11, 12 and $12 on 3). Right?

The $243 assumes the player wants the same bet.

Most times, at that bet amount, the player wants to bet more and maybe even change the high number.

Or he could just ask for the bet to come down. That would be the same total payoff ($18*15) plus the winning part of the bet ($18) and down.

I saw one lucky player hit and press the horn high 4 times in a row to the table max. On the 3rd hit of HHYo, he then pressed the HHYo and put $100 on the Yo. Of course it hit and the TABLE WENT NUTS! The suits were sweating the money.

Wait, so in your opinion it was unusual that the dealer did that? I thought you said that was the proper way. So are you sayig you would have expected him to have done $8 on 2, 3, 12 and $11 on 11? To me the math seems so much harder if you do it that way. For example, $35 horn hi aces doing it that way. Just to figure out how much goes on each number you would have to compute

(35 - 35 mod 4)/4 = 8 for each of the "low" numbers, and then 8 + 35 mod 4 = 11 for the high number. Actually computing the payoff would be even harder.

Awesome thanks for your help! About the suits sweating the money, I just don't get it. I mean come on, really? I've been playing craps for about 4 years now, and the hottest roll I've been a part of was two weeks ago. My brother and I were playing, and next to us was this drunk guy with about $400 in his rail and buys a $3500 marker. He starts betting $25 on the line with $500 odds, and two come bets. All of sudden, this one guy gets the dice and starts to roll. The guy next to me has bases loaded with $25 come bets with $1000 odds on each number. While I'm happy with all my "$28 same bet please" rolling in, the guy next to me is going "off and on for $2025, off and on for $1225, off and on for $1525 etc. etc." every roll for the next 30 mins or so. He did a 5 way hard 10 and 4 (him, shooter, me, my bro, and the dealers), which he parlayed. Next thing I know I'm up $1000, he's up almost $90,000! The supervisor was standing behind the boxman and she looked like her head was about to explode. Her face was turning red and she was visibly having a nervous breakdown. I just don't understand why they care so much? It's not like it's their money, and it's not like a portion of the casino's losses at that one table are going to come out of her paycheck. And it's not like the casino isn't going to make that back. In fact, I'm sure some other guy LOST just as much if not more at a Blackjack table that day.

Most layouts that I have seen have boxes for the 4 horn high bets.Quote:james121515Quote:

He did not use the box for the horn high 11. It would have been so much easier to put the $25 there instead of what he did. And most dealers do it that way.
