In our How To Play Sic Bo article earlier this week, we took a look at how a complete round of this popular dice-based casino game is played.  Now that you know the basics of playing, lets take a look at all of the different Sic Bo bets you can make.

Sic Bo Bet: One Die

The first bet is the lowest row of the board circled here in blue:

In these squares you can make a bet on single rolls of the dice. Placing a bet on one of these is a bet that at least one of the dice will fall on the number you bet on. For example, if you place a bet on the far left “One” square, you are wagering that at least one of the 3 dice will land on 1 when they are rolled.

If one die lands on the number you wagered on, you will win at 1:1 odds. If 2 of the dice land on the number you wagered on, you will win at 2:1 odds. And if all 3 of the dice land on a number you bet on, you will receive 3:1 odds on your wager.

Sic Bo Bet: Two Dice

The second bet is the two dice bet found in the second row from the bottom of the Sic Bo table seen here:

As you may have guessed, the 2 dice bet is a wager on 2 dice at once. It is a wager that 2 out of the 3 dice will land on certain numbers. For example, if you bet on 3 & 4, you are wagering that one out of the three dice will land on 3 and one out of the three dice will land on 4. Winning bets in the Two Dice row of bets will pay the player 5:1 odds.

Sic Bo Bet: Total Bets

The third category of Sic Bo bets are the bets on the total of all three dice, also known as Total Bets. The total bets are in the third row from the bottom of the Sic Bo game screen seen below:

If you are able to correctly bet on the total of the three dice, you can win up to 60 times your original bet in the Silver Oak Casino Version of the game.

Sic Bo Bet: Small and Big

Of all of the bets on the Sic Bo table, the Small and Big bets have the best odds of them all.  A bet on either of these is a bet that the either the total of the three dice will be either between 4 and 10 (Small) or 11 and 17 (Big).  The Small and Big bet areas are highlighted below:

The Small and Big Bets are very popular due to their good odds, easy to understand rules, and amount of action they get (betting on one of these will win almost half of the time).

Sic Bo Bet: Doubles and Triple

The Doubles bet is a wager that two of the dice will land on the same number.  The Triples bet is a wager that all three of the dice will land on the exact same number.  Each of these wagers are on a specific number coming up as doubles or triples.  In other words, a bet on “Double Three” is a wager that two of the dice will land on 3, a bet on “Triple Four” is a wager that all three dice will land on 4, etc.

The Doubles and Triples bets are highlighted below in blue:

Sic Bo Bets: Any Triple

Finally, a bet on “Any Triple” is a wager that all of the dice will land on the same number, like the “Triples” bet above.  However, instead of picking a single number that all of the dice will land on, a bet on “Any Triple” will win if all of the dice land on the same number, no matter what it is.  In other words, a bet on “Any Triple” will win if the dice land on three 1’s, three 2’s, three 3’s, etc.

The Any Triple bet is highlighted below:
