Betting at Sic Bo

Posted by Nick Niesen on October 28th, 2010

So, you are interested in the amusing game of Sic Bo? It is a simple game that I and many others enjoy playing. This time, I would like to discuss the different possible bets at Sic Bo. This may be useful if you would like to play the game but you don't know how to bet. After all, let's face it, betting is an important feature of any casino game. How can you put your money on a game, when you don't know what the different bets are?

Do remember that Sic Bo is a fun game of chance that depends upon the roll of three dice. Some people love reading up all about different strategies for a particular game. When a game is basically based on luck, I find it difficult to even think about strategies. For me, this is the case with Sic Bo. Strategies then become based on betting issues. However, especially when playing for money, I do believe that it important to know what is involved in the game and what one's betting options are.

Bet to Your Heart's Content

Below you will find the main bets that are available at this game.

First of all, there is a high bet in the game of Sic Bo. For this eventuality the total of the three dice will be a number between 11 and 17.

For a low bet, the total of the three dice will be between the numbers 4 and 10.

There is an odd bet and an even bet, which are rather self explanatory.

It should be noted that all the above bets do not include triples.

An additional possible bet consists of a specific triple for which the particular number is determined in advance. A bet may also be placed on any triple.
Further, there are also bets on specific doubles for which the number is predicted in advance.

One may also place bets on specific dice combinations. This bet involves predicting two out of the three dice.

These are the main bets available at the Sic Bo game. Some experts recommend keeping to the high and low bets - especially for beginners. High and low bets usually offer the odds of 1:1.

Do bear in mind that the various odds and the table layout vary at different casinos. It is recommended to read detailed information regarding the game and its odds in addition to the relevant terms and conditions, before playing.

As with other casino games, it is advisable to try out free games of Sic Bo in order to learn the game before placing your money on the table. This is an excellent way to adjust to the game and practice different bets before playing for real money.
