SIC BO TIPS & STRATEGIESOn June 14, 2021 by Jerome Diggs
There are seven different bets you can make at a sic bo table. First, players may wager on any one of the six dice sides (1 through 6). If that number comes up on any one of the dice, the sic bo player is paid even money. If two of the dice come up with the same number, the bet is paid off at 2-to-1. And if all three dice come up on that same number, the bet is paid at 3-to-1. The house edge on this number is 7.8%.
The next wager on the sic bo table is a combination of two numbers. If, for example, a 2-5 or a 3-6 come up on any two of the dice, the bet is paid off at 5-to-1, giving the house 16.6 percent advantage.
Bets can also be made on the total of all the dice. The sic bo player can bet on any specific total from 4 to 17. The payoff on this bet varies from 6-to-1 to 50-to-1, depending upon the total bet. The house edge can also vary between 9.7% to 47.2%.
The next sic bo bet is a wager of “small” or “big,” which means that if you bet on small, you’re wagering that the three dice will total between 4 and 10. Big bets win if the dice total between 11 and 17. However, you lose if any triple appears. That means if three twos or threes or any other three-of-a-kind comes up, you lose, even though the total might constitute a small or big win. But even with the catch thrown in, the big and small bets are the best at the sic bo table, giving the house a rather reasonable 2.7% edge.
You also can bet for any of the six triplets in sic bo, but the three-of-a-kind bet is among the worst on the sic bo table. If you bet, for instance, that three fours will come up, you’ll get paid 150-to-1, but the true odds are 215-to-1, giving the casino a 30% advantage.
You could also bet for any triplet. You get paid 24-to-1 on this bet, but the true odds are 35-to-1. Which ends up another 30% house edge.
SIC BO – THREE DICE GAME (FOR BEGINNERS)
Sic Bo is a Ingatbola88 game somewhat like roulette in that there are many places on the table to place bets. 3 dice are used to determine the outcome of the betting. Once you have finished placing your bets click on the roll button.
Single Number Bets
The bottom row of the Sic Bo table has six betting areas. These are called single number bets. If one of the three dice comes up as one the numbers bet on (from 1-6), you get paid out at 1-1. If two numbers come up you get paid out at 2-1 and if three numbers come up you get paid out at 3-1. So if bet on the number 6 and you wagered $5.00 and 2 sixes came up you would win $10.00.
One number Appears – 1-1
Two numbers Appear – 2-1
Three numbers Appear – 3-1
Two Number Combinations
The two number combination bets consist of placing a wager on any 2 dice combinations. If you wager on a 6,4 combination and the result of the dice roll was 4,7,6, you would win at 5-1 odds. If the result of the dice roll was 6,4,4 you would win twice because there are two combinations of 6,4.
Three Number Totals
A three number total wager consists of combining the total shown on the resulting dice roll. Different totals have different odds. A result of 3 or 18 is always a loss. The payouts are as follows:
Three Number Totals (4-17) 4 or 17 50-1
5 or 16 25-1
6 or 15 15-1
7 or 14 10-1
8 or 13 6-1
9 or 12 5-1
10 or 11 5-1
Small or Big Wager
You can wager on whether the combined total of the dice roll will be either between 4-10 or 11-17. This wager pays out at 1-1 odds. A triplet will always result in a loss for the player.
Triplets are when the resulting dice roll consists of all three dice containing the same digit. So if you wagered on three 6’s and that was the dice result you would win at 150-1 odds. You can also wager on all six triplet bets at once, this is called “An y Triplet” and pays out at 25-1 odds.
Triplet Bets 150-1
Any Triplet 25-1
Pair Bets 11-1
Pairs are when the resulting dice roll contains a pair of the same number. Whether you have two fives or three fives you still only win once and you win at odds of 11-1.
