Betting the C & E in Craps

The C & E is a combination of two bets. The 'C' is the Any Craps: Aces, Ace Deuce, and 12. The 'E' stands for Eleven or the Yo. You can bet the C & E as a split (both simultaneously) or individually ( a different amount on each the C and the E).

The C & E is sort of the poor man's Horn. It bets all the same numbers but has a different pay structure and a $2 minimum; you need at least $1 on the 'C' and $1 on the 'E'. On the Horn, you need to bet $4.

Where Is Your C & E on the Craps Table?

There are usually enough spots of the C & E for every player on the table. They are also not confined to a box so there’s plenty of space to place the bets. Placements of the C & E’s are relative to your spot on the table.

What Does the C & E Pay in a Craps Game?

Splitting – There are two payouts possible when splitting the C & E. If any of the Craps roll (2, 3, or 12) the payout will be 3x the bet. E.g. a $5 C & E will pay 3 x 5 or $15. If the Yo rolls (11) the payout will be 7x the bet.
