# Betting the World in Craps

People love to bet the Horn and the Horn Highs during the Comeout Roll. It's a one-roll bet and the payoffs can be pretty good but, like most other bets, it falls prey to a roll of the 7. This is where the World, aka Whirl, comes into play. The World is a combination of a Horn and an Any 7.

The World
Roll Pays Wins Loses
High Side 26:1 2 or 12 Any other number
Low Side 11:1 3 or 11 Any other number

*Payments are in terms of a \$5 World bet.

• The World is a one roll bet

## What Is a \$5 World in Craps?

A \$5 World is a \$1 on each the Aces, Ace Deuce, Yo, Twelve, and the Any 7. The minimum is five-dollars because you must put at least \$1 on those five bets so the World needs to be bet in increments of five. You can also consider a \$5 World to be a \$4 Horn with \$1 on the Any 7.

## Where Is Your World on the Craps Table?

I would say that the majority of Craps tables don’t have a picture of the World on them. The World is more of a bet that dealer and players know by heart. Example 2 shows one of the other ways I've seen a world set up on a table without the globe image.

## What Does a \$5 World Pay on the Craps Table?

Like all other Multi-Bets, the World pays differently depending on what rolls. There are three options: the 7 rolls, the high side rolls (2, 12), or the low side rolls (3, 11).

### Seven Rolls - Push

When the 7 rolls the World is a push; it does not win or lose. It's a push because the dollar bet on the Any Seven wins four dollars, and that four dollars pays for the rest of the losing bets in the World: the Aces, Ace Deuce, Yo and Twelve.

## How Do You Bet the World for the Dealers?

Ideally, multiples of \$5 would be best for the dealers. Anything less would be an improper bet than requires some odd math for the dealers and usually ends up getting rounded down.
