If you are looking for a “sick” game to play, then the choice is clear: Sic Bo. Or, if you are literally sick at home, and are looking for a game to play to pass the time: it’s still Sic Bo. It will help you to feel better—well, if you win. Everyone knows winning cash surely has curative properties.

For those unfamiliar, Sic Bo is a fairly simple game of chance involving betting that certain conditions (eg. that the three dice will add up to eleven or more) will be fulfilled by the roll of (three) dice. If that didn’t make much sense, have a look at this table, which should be fairly self-explanatory. It displays the different types of bets in Sic Bo.

As you can see, when it comes to betting in Sic Bo, you can throw down some cash on just about any sort of permutation.

Sick Bo Bets

The betting in Sic Bo ranges from extremely common payouts (like the three dice numbers totaling nine), all the way up to extremely uncommon (like the three dice numbers totaling 17), and everywhere in between.

Unlike a lot of other games where you are at the mercy of a couple side-bets, or the fixed couple of payouts of the game itself, Sic Bo allows the player to really bet within any percentile they want each hand. If you want to get crazy, it’s easy.

Sick, right?

The Sic Bo Triple Odds

Sometimes you are just really feeling it. You walk into the casino, and you’re practically giddy because you can feel the luck overflowing from yourself and radiating out into the universe. It’s like a shield around you that the casino cannot penetrate. It’s nights like these where you want to crank up the bets and really “swing for the fences” so to speak—enter Sic Bo triple odds. That’s right; triple. Ain’t nobody got time for double odds.

Triple odds in Sic Bo dictate that the player picks one number, and the rest is simple: if all three dice land on that number you are paid out 180 to 1. (The odds of this happening are around 0.5%.) So if you throw a five dollar bet down on Sic Bo triple odds, you will walk away with a cool $900. If you are really  feeling your luck, then this might just be the bet for you. Regardless, the ability to explore any range of probability is what makes Sic Bo such a dynamic and exciting game.

If you haven’t played it before, why not give it a test drive today?
