How to Play Sic Bo at BGAMING
Sic Bo (pronounced SEE-BO) is a dice game that moves quickly and offers a good variety of betting options. It is played on a large table and requires no skill or strategy, but the more you know about the rules of the game, the better you will be able to understand how to play it and maximise your winning chances.
At a glance, the variety of bets on a Sic Bo table can seem overwhelming and it is easy to make mistakes, even for experienced players. However, there are a number of things that can be done to help you avoid this. The first step is to set a budget and stick to it. This is always important when playing a casino game, and Sic Bo is no exception.
It is also a good idea to familiarise yourself with the different bets and their payout odds before you start playing, especially if it’s your first time. BGAMING’s platform makes this very easy, since every bet is illustrated and the odds are clearly written on each box. It will also help you to get an understanding of which bets offer the best odds and the lowest house edge.
There are 15 domino-like areas on the Sic Bo table, with each one representing a specific combination of two dice. The payouts for these bets range from 1:1 for a simple Big or Small bet to 180:1 for a Triple bet that is the same on all three dice.
To place a bet, simply place your chips in the appropriate section of the table. A dealer will then shake the dice and if the outcome of the roll matches your bet, you will win. There is no need to understand the mechanics of how the dice are rolled, or the various bets themselves, but you do need to recognise that the game is pure chance and that each roll has its own odds.
You can also place bets on the total of the dice, namely High or Low. These bets pay out according to their probabilities and can be a great way to increase your winnings. However, it is important to note that the total of the dice cannot be a double and that a ‘High’ bet pays out only 5:1 and a ‘Low’ bet pays out just 3:1.
Some of the other bets you can place on a Sic Bo table are Big or Small, Odd or Even, and Double. These bets are more like the Red or Black bets on a Roulette table, as you are wagering on an even money outcome, but they do have lower payout odds than a Big or Small bet and are unlikely to produce a winning triple. However, they can be an excellent way to add a little extra excitement to your game and you can easily increase or decrease the size of your bets as you see fit.
