Setup

Sic Bo is a dice game which consists of many places on the table to place bets. Three dice are used to determine the outcome of the betting.

Betting

The bottom row of the Sic Bo table has six betting areas. These are called single number bets. If one of the three dice comes up as one the numbers bet on (from 1-6), you get paid out at 1 to 1. If two numbers come up you get paid out at 2 to 1 and if three numbers come up you get paid out at 3 to 1. So if you bet on the number 3 and you wagered \$5.00 and 2 threes came up you would win \$10.00.

The two number combination bets consist of placing a wager on any 2 dice combinations. If you wager on a 6,4 combination and the result of the dice roll was 4,7,6, you would win at 6 to 1 odds. You can only win on one instance of the two-number combination.

A three number total wager consists of combining the total shown on the resulting dice roll. Different totals have different odds. A Judi Bola result of 3 or 18 is always a loss. The payouts are as follows: 4 or 17, 50 to 1; 5 or 16, 25 to 1; 6 or 15, 15 to 1; 7 or 14, 10 to 1; 8 or 13, 6 to 1; 9 or 12, 5 to 1; 10 or 11, 5 to 1.

You can wager on whether the combined total of the dice roll will be either between 4-10 or 11-17. This wager pays out at 1-1 odds. All small or big wagers lose if the result of the dice is a triplet.

Triplets are when the dice roll are all one number. So if you wagered on three 6’s and that was the dice result you would win at 150-1 odds. You can also wager on all six triplet bets at once, this is called “Any Triplet” and pays out at 25-1 odds.

Guy knows what he’s talking about!

I have a question for you on the subject of placing the 6 and 8. It seems to be open for some debate. People in the know, who I trust, like you and Anthony Curtis, say itÂ¹s a good bet, and I agree. But others, like John “I write about craps for a living and never play” Gollehon say it is still too big a house edge, that you should go through the come instead with odds. Heck, I say do both and if it hits on the first roll after the point is established, use the place bet for odds. If it doesnÂ¹t, well, youÂ¹ve got plenty of action – a pass line bet with odds on the point of 8, a place bet on the 6, and come bet with odds on the 9 (or whatever is rolled). Hopefully itÂ¹s a \$2 table. It seems as if you did nothing but place the 6 and 8 all night you would turn out OK. Please give me your side of the argument. Josh N.

There are plenty of reasons why I complement my Pass line wager and odds with a Place bet on the 6 or 8; two quickly come to mind. First, itÂ¹s a wager with a small house advantage, 1.5%, and second, itÂ¹s plenty cheap. A Place bet can be made for as little as \$6. (Quick side note: When making a Place bet on 6 or 8, you should always wager in multiplies of \$6 [\$12, \$18, \$24, etc.]. Why? 6 and 8 pay off at 7 to 6, so I win \$7 for every \$6 bet. A win on any bet under \$6 is spelled “shortchange”, since the dealer will round down to the nearest dollar and pay you less than you actually won.)
