## What is Sic Bo?

Sic Bo is particularly fascinating because of its fast – paced, and unpredictable nature, and appeals to all the casino lovers. Sic Bo literally translates to “precious dice”, and is also known by its other names, including ‘Tai Sai’, ‘Dai Siu’, ‘Big and Small’, and ‘Hi – Lo’. Three dice are kept in a dice rolling machine, with the outcome of the roll determining the winnings and losses.

Through this tutorial, you will know everything you need, to play Sic Bo on JeetWin.

## Basic rules

Sic Bo is an unequal game of chance, played with three dice. While the Sic Bo table may look complex and daunting at first, once you understand the rules of the game, it is one of the most exciting games you can play on JeetWin. Three dice are kept in a dice rolling machine, and the players are then asked to bet on the results of the roll. The players may bet on the total of the three dice, the odd or even nature of the total of the three dice, the chance of a single number appearing after the roll, chances of two specific numbers appearing, or on the chance of a specific combination of numbers appearing after the roll.

Similar to roulette, you can place as many bets as you want, and each bet has a different payout, based on the probability of the number appearing on the dice.

## Game Terms

On the Sic Bo table, you will find different betting areas. These would include the big and small betting areas, the odd and even betting areas, areas for different combinations of bets, single betting areas, double betting areas and finally, triple betting areas. Once you understand the betting process, the rules are simple.

**Total Bets**– In Sic Bo, you can bet on the total number shown on the three dice. You can bet on numbers ranging from 4 to 17, as 3 and 18 would constitute a triple bet. The payout on each total is different based on the probability of the numbers appearing on the dice.**Small and Big Bets**– In Sic Bo, you can bet on the probability of the total of the three dice being Small (from 4 to 10) or Big (from 11 to 17). You can bet on the total being either a Big bet, for which the total of the three dice has to be between 11 and 17, or on the chance of the total being a Small bet, for which the total of the three dice has to be between 4 and 10. It is important to note that, while Big and Small bets are considered to be the safest bets in Sic Bo, both bets would lose if a triple occurs; that is, both Big and Small lose, in case three same numbers appear on all the three dice.**Odd and Even Bets**– Players can also bet on the odd and even nature of either the total of the three dice, or on individual die. Once the croupier stops the dice rolling machine, the three numbers are revealed, and their total is calculated. Similar to Big and Small bets, odd and even bets are generally considered to be low risk bets in Sic Bo.**Pair Bets**– A pair bet in Sic Bo, is a bet which can be placed on any two specific numbers showing on the three dice after the roll. You can use the pair bet as a part of the medium risk Sic Bo strategy.**Single Bet**– In a single bet, you bet that one specific number will show on any one of the three dice. The payout for single bets is different, because one bet can win different amounts, based on how many times the number appears after the roll.**Double Bet**– In a double bet, you bet that two specific numbers will show on two of the three dice. For example, a double bet on 4 would win, if the three dice show 4, 4, 5. However, unlike a triple bet, you can only bet on a specific double, although you can bet on as many doubles as you please.**Any Triple Bet**– In a triple bet, you bet on all three dice showing the same number. The number can be non – specific, and the bet is termed as ‘Any Triple Bet’.**Specific Triple Bet**– You can also bet on the probability of all three dice showing a specific number. Specific triple bet is a part of the high risk Sic Bo strategy.

## Placing Sic Bo bets

Before the dealer starts the dice rolling machine, you will hear, “Start betting”, upon which the participants place their bets on either small and big bets (3 – 17), odd and even bets, combination bets, single bet, double bet or a triple bet. The betting period closes when the dealer says, “Stop betting. No betting in this game”. The croupier then turns on the dice rolling machine, revealing the numbers on the three dice. The losing bets are then collected, and the dealer pays out the winnings.

## Payout Amounts

In Sic Bo, each bet has a different payout based on probability.

The payout on Big and Small bets is 1:1. That is, you essentially double the amount you bet if you win. For example, if you bet Rs. 1000 on Big and win, you will get back Rs. 2000.

Similarly, the payout on even and odd bets is 1:1. For instance, if you bet Rs. 1000 on the total being odd and win, you will get back Rs. 2000.

The payout on a pair bet is 5:1, regardless of which pair you bet on. For example, if you bet Rs. 1000 on 1 and 4 showing on two of the three dice, and the numbers on the three dice happen to be 1, 5 and 4, then you win back Rs. 6000.

The payout on a double bet is 10:1. For example, if you bet Rs. 1000 on 4 to win, and the three dice show 4, 4, and 5, then you win back Rs. 11,000.

The payout on any triple bet bet is 30:1. For example, if you bet Rs. 500 on a triple bet, and the three dice show 2, 2, and 2, then you win back Rs. 15,500.

The payout on a specific triple bet bet is 180:1. For example, if you bet Rs. 200 on three 5’s, and the three dice show 5, 5, and 5, then you win back Rs. 36,200.

The payout on a single bet depends on how many occurrences of the chosen number turn up on the three dice. If the number chosen turns up on one die, the payout is 1:1. If it turns up on two dice, the payout is 2:1, and if it turns up on all three dice, the payout is 3:1. For example, if you bet Rs. 200 on 3 showing on the dice, and the three dice show 3, 5 and 3, then you win back Rs. 600.

The payouts on each of the bets made on the three dice total differ, based on the probability of each total occurring.

- Totals of 4 and 17 have 60:1 payout.
- Totals of 5 and 16 have 30:1 payout.
- Totals of 6 and 15 have 18:1 payout.
- Totals of 7 and 14 have 12:1 payout.
- Totals of 8 and 13 have 8:1 payout.
- Totals of 9 and 12 have 7:1 payout.
