Sic Bo is a primarily an Asian casino game that is not quite as popular as other casino games. This game is played with three dice, and players place their bets on the Sic Bo table. It is much like the roulette table where there are guides and charts of where to place the players’ bets on the table. The goal of the players in this game is to try and predict the outcome of the dice after they are shaken.
There are different kinds of bets in Sic Bo, just like in Roulette. Some bets are called three of a kind and two of a kind bets. These bets mean the player bets on a single number appearing either three times or twice after the dice are shaken. Other bets are any three of a kind or any two of a kind bets. This means exactly that the player bets for triples of any number to appear in the dice.
There is also a bet called small wherein the player bets the total sum of the three dice will be 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 10. Three of a kinds are not included in this bet so if the dice show three ones, the player loses. Products of three of a kind total like 6 or 9 are also excluded from the small bet.
Big bets are also another bet in the Sic Bo game. This means the player bets the total sum of the three dice will be equal to 11, 12, 13, 14 15, 16, or 17. Three of a kind total are also excluded from winning in this bet just like in the small bet.
Other possible bets for Sic Bo are 4 - 17 single bets. This means that you are betting on the sum of all three dices to be one of the numbers 4 - 17. Pay outs of this kind of bets differ depending on the number you have chosen to bet on. Most lower and higher numbers have higher pay outs while the numbers in the middle have the lesser pay outs.
Another bet accepted in Sic Bo is duo. This means the player believes that the outcome of the dice will have two of the numbers he has chosen. No two numbers must be the same in this bet. The last possible bet is called one of a kind where a player believes that the dice will have at least one number which he has chosen.
