Sic Bo is a similar game to craps in that players bet on different combinations of dice to occur, and that there are a big variety of bets available.


Single Number Bets

The bottom row of the sic bo table has six betting areas. These are called single number bets. If one of the three dice comes up as one the numbers bet on (from 1-6), you get paid out at 1-1. If two numbers come up you get paid out at 2-1 and if three numbers come up you get paid out at 3-1. So if you bet on the number 6 and you wagered 5 credits and 2 sixes came up you would win 10 credits.

  • One number appears: 1-1

  • Two numbers appear: 2-1

  • Three numbers appear: 3-1



Two Number Combinations

The two number combination bets consist of placing a wager on any 2 dice combinations. If you wager on a 6,4 combination and the result of the dice roll was 4,7,6, you would win at 5-1 odds. If the result of the dice roll was 6,4,4 you would win twice because there are two combinations of 6,4.



Three Number Totals

A three number total wager consists of combining the total shown on the resulting dice roll. Different totals have different odds. A result of 3 or 18 is always a loss. The payouts are as follows:

 Dice Total  Payout
4 or 17
5 or 16
6 or 15
7 or 14
8 or 13
9 or 12
10 or 11



Small or Big Wager

You can wager on whether the combined total of the dice roll will be either between 4-10 or 11-17. This wager pays out at 1-1 odds. A triplet will always result in a loss for the player.



Triplet Bets

Triplets are when the resulting dice roll consists of all three dice containing the same digit. So if you wagered on three sixes and that was the dice result you would win at 150-1 odds. You can also wager on all six triplet bets at once, this is called "Any Triplet" and pays out at 25-1 odds.

  • Triplet Bets 150-1

  • Any Triplet 25-1

  • Pair Bets 11-1




Pairs are when the resulting dice roll contains a pair of the same number. Whether you have two fives or three fives you still only win once and you win at odds of 11-1.
