Rules

When playing Sic Bo online, you need to place a bet before the dice can be rolled.  In this game, players can bet as much as they want on a single roll.  If players are correct they will receive a payout in accordance with the pay table.

Strategy

One strategy that is good for beginners is the Small and Big strategy.  This low risk strategy states that a player either bets on big or small for a specific number of rolls.  Players can also place a combination bet as it has a low casino edge of just 2.77%.  This is another major strategy in Sic Bo and it can lead to consistent payouts.  The odds of this strategy are 6 to 1 and the payout is also 6 to 1.  In addition, this strategy is fairly easy for casual and novice players to understand. 

Tips

Players should always use the Big or Small strategy especially if they are new to the game.  In this game, the house edge is already low so players already have an advantage.  Despite the fact that the payout for the big or small bet is even money, it is much easier to continue playing for a longer period of time when this strategy is used. 

When you place a big bet, you are actually betting that the total of the 3 dice will fall between the values of 11 and 17.  The winning combinations are:

  • Die 1 has a value of 5 or 4
  • Die 2 has a value of 6
  • Die 3 has a value of 4 or 1

The idea is that these combinations will give you a win if you place a big bet.  If you want to place a smaller bet then the dice combination will have to have a value between 10 and 4.  Winning combinations for these bets are:

  • Die 1 has a value of 2
  • Die 2 has a value of 1 or 3
  • Die 3 as a value of 5 or 1
