In this article we are looking at the probability you could win in Sic Bo. We have included a table that shows the pay, probability and the return. The bets we are looking at in this case you going to deal with the big and small. We want you to realize that these are the best bets you can place in Sic Bo if you hope to have a winning roll more often than not. Sic Bo offers a house edge of 2.78 percent and even money payout on the big and small bets. However, there are some cases in which the pay will be a little different depending on your moves.

This table is first explaining the house edge and probability of rolling either a 4 or 17 as the total. In Sic Bo when you bet for the small you are saying the result of a three dice total will be between 4 and 10. So if you are trying for the four you have a probability of winning 1.39 percent for various payouts. The payouts are based on the casino you are playing in. As you can see some casinos will offer a payout of 65 for a four or seventeen. The return percentage is also going to vary in this respect.

House Edge for the 7 and 14 total

Pay Probability Return

10 6.94% 23.61%
11 same 16.67%
12 same 9.72%

In the above table we have again looked at two numbers and the outcomes. If you are placing a bet on the 7 or 14 then you have a probability of winning 6.94 percent of the time with a fairly high return. Again the casino you are playing at is going to make a difference. The point we are trying to make is that when you have a higher probability and a lower house edge you will be able to win the bet more often. For the seven there are more combinations of the three dice to yield that number then there are with the four.

For example to roll a four:

1. 1, 2, and 1=4
2. 1, 1, and 2= 4
3. 2, 1, and 1= 4

In all of these examples you need to have at least two ones and one two. If you have two 2's and another die you are over 4. So there is really only one combination of numbers. Let's look at the seven.

1. 1, 2, and 4=7
2. 2, 2 and 3= 7
3. 4, 2, and 1= 7
4. 4, 1, and 2= 7
5. 3, 2, and 2= 7
6. 3, 3, and 1= 7

We could go on, but look at what is above. There are four numbers on three dice that when placed in certain combinations offer you the win of 7, which is more than the 4.
