Sic Bo is a quickly play, no-nonsense online casino game that has become very popular in recent years. The concept brings together the features of both craps and roulette, with a huge range of betting options available. The name stands for ‘dice pair’ but the game is actually played with three, making the range of outcomes that much more developed.
The Sic Bo Board
Although I may look complex the rules to Sic Bo are very simple. It is very similar to Roulette in which players place bets via the board before the event takes place with varying chips below the board. Each payout is based on the probability of the event taking place and players have the chance to spread their bets across as many options as you like.
Types of Bets
Big / Small – This bet is placed on the total of the three dice being Big (11 to 17) or Small (4 to 10). Either bet loses if a triple is rolled. The typical payout for this bet is 1 to 1.
Odd / Even – This bet is placed on the total of the three dice being either odd or even. Like the Big / Small bet any bet placed on either will lose if a triple is rolled. Typical payout for this bet is 1 to 1.
Totals – There are 14 different best on the total of the three dice. The payout’s in general range from 50 to 1 and 6 to 1. You will find that these are the most common payoffs that casinos change

Two Dice Combinations – This bet is placed on the next roll containing two specific dice. for example 1 & 2, 1 & 5, 3 & 6 and so on. There are 15 possible combinations and the bet wins if the two selected numbers are rolled. This bet pays 5 to 1.
Any Number – The final betting option on the Sic Bo table are the single number bets which are 1 though 6. You win if one of more of the dice on the next roll are the correct number. Typically you win 1 to 1 for one match, 2 to 1 for 2 matches and 3 to 1 if all three dice match.
