How To Play Sic Bo

Sic Bo is an ancient Chinese game of chance, with 3 dice in a cage for tumbling. It's not only extremely popular in Asian cultures, but this exciting game is also winning new converts in many casinos around the world.

Sic Bo is easy to play. The object is to pick the numbers or combinations that will appear on the dice when they come to rest after. There are 50 different ways to place bets, so you have plenty of choices with a range of payouts – some as high as 180/1.

Bet Options
The Sic Bo table offers the following types of bets:

1. Small / Big Bet
A Small bet wins when the total of the three dice is between 4 and 10 (Under 11). The payout is even money, unless there is a low triple (triple 1s, 2s or 3s), in which case the Small bet loses. The opposite is a Big bet, which wins when the total of the three dice is between 11 and 17 (Over 10). Again the payout is even money, unless there is a high triple (triple 1s, 2s or 3s), in which case the Big bet loses.

2. Specific Double
To win a Specific Double bet, two of the three dice must show the Double you select. The payout is 11/1. There are six Specific Double bets you can make (and you can place bets on any or all of them for any roll). If the third dice also matches the Specific Double number (in other words, when the result is a Triple), the Specific Double bet still wins.

3. Specific Triple
To win a Specific Triple bet, all three of the dice must show the Specific Triple you select. The payout is 180/1. There are six Specific Triple bets you can make (and you can place bets on any or all of them for any roll).

4. Any Triple
To win the Any Triple bet, all three of the dice must show the same number, but it can be any of the six possible numbers. The payout is 31/1.

5. Specific Total
To win a Specific Total bet, all three of the dice must add up to the Specific Total you select. The payout varies depending on the total selected, from 6/1 to 62/1 (as indicated in the payout table below). There are fourteen Specific Total bets you can make: totals of 4 through 17. You can place bets on any or all of them for any roll, but only one of the fourteen totals can win.

6. Pair Match
To win a Pair Match bet, two of the three of the dice must make the pair selected. The payout is 6/1 on each pair. There are fifteen Pair Match bets you can make (and you can place bets on any or all of them for any roll). More than one Pair Match bet can win on any given roll. For example if 2, 4 and 6 are rolled the following Pair Match bets will win: 2&4, 2&6 and 4&6.

7. Numbers Bet
If you place a wager on any of the six numbered boxes in the "Numbers Bet" area at the bottom of the table layout you'll win according to how many of the three dice come up with the selected number. One dice pays evens, Two pay 2/1 and Three dice pay 12/1.
