Sic Bo Rules
Dice and tables are a part of Sic Bo, much like the game Craps. You will have a table in which there are bets earmarked for you to make your wager. You must place a chip on the table in the area you wish to bet before the dealer spins the dice. The dice will be let out and the winnings shown.
In this game you are trying to predict the dice. You can predict one die or all three dice in a variety of ways that will be explained. You can also place more than one bet if you would like.
You have 8 bets to place that are listed below.
Single Number Bets
On the table you will see an area with six bets that you can make. This is the single bet area. In this area you are betting that a number on one die will be between 1 and 6; it is a specific number that you are pulling for. In this bet you get a 1 to 1 payout.
In this area if two dice have the number you specified you can earn a payout of 2 to 1.
You can also bet for a 3 to 1 payout if all three dice have the same number appear. Usually you are unable to get the winnings for the specific triple if you didn't designate that bet. In other words, just because the three dice are the same, doesn't mean you placed the correct bet. Just betting on one number restricts you from the specified triple, but not the regular triple. We will look at the specific triple further on.
Two Number Combinations
In this area you are betting that two dice will have the combination you specified rather than just one dice. So you could say that one die will have the number 4 and a second die would be a number 6. It the dice are 1, 4, 6 then you win the bet. The payout is 6 to 1.
Three Number Totals
In Sic Bo you can also bet on all three dice in a couple of different ways. The usual bets in this case are the small or big bet. The payouts will differ for the three combination bet you choose.
The small bet is when you say the total of the three dice will between 4 and 10. If you have a 3, which is possible, that would be a loss on this bet. On this bet you can earn 1 to 1.
For the big bet you are saying that the dice total will be between 11 and 17. If you roll an 18 you lose. The payout is 1 to 1.
Triple and Pair Bets
In Sic Bo you have Triple bets that you can place. In this case you are going to state that all three dice will have the same number. For example the number on the dice could be 3, so all dice need to have 3's showing on the roll, which is a specific triple. You can also have an odd or even triple. The odd triple is stating that all dice will have odd numbers, but you don't specify a certain number. Here are some examples: 3, 5, 6 or 3, 3, 5 or 5, 6, 5. Each die is an odd number, but you didn't state that would be the combination.
The payout is below:
If you had a specific triple then you get 150 to 1.
If you guessed odd or even and won then you get 25 to 1.
