Horn Bet

In the context of craps, a horn bet is a wager split equally between the numbers 2, 3, 11, and 12. For example, if you were to make a horn bet of $100 (a black chip), then $25 (a green chip) would be placed on each of the numbers.

Craps players sometimes choose to hedge their horn bets with any seven (big red) bets. This combination wager is called a world bet (or whirl bet).
