There are seven different bets you can make at a sic bo table. First, players may wager on any one of the six dice sides (1 through 6). If that number comes up on any one of the dice, the sic bo player is paid even money. If two of the dice come up with the same number, the bet is paid off at 2to1. And if all three dice come up on that same number, the bet is paid at 3to1. The house edge on this number is 7.8%. Bets can also be made on the total of all the dice. The sic bo player can bet on any specific total from 4 to 17. The payoff on this bet varies from 6to1 to 50to1, depending upon the total bet. The house edge can also vary between 9.7% to 47.2%. The next sic bo bet is a wager of “small” or “big,” which means that if you bet on small, you’re wagering that the three dice will total between 4 and 10. Big bets win if the dice total between 11 and 17. However, you lose if any triple appears. That means if three twos or threes or any other threeofakind comes up, you lose, even though the total might constitute a small or big win. But even with the catch thrown in, the big and small bets are the best at the sic bo table, giving the house a rather reasonable 2.7% edge. You also can bet for any of the six triplets in sic bo, but the threeofakind bet is among the worst on the sic bo table. If you bet, for instance, that three fours will come up, you’ll get paid 150to1, but the true odds are 215to1, giving the casino a 30% advantage. 
Sic Bo RulesThe game of sic bo is played with dice. After all the bets have been made, the dealer spins a small cage containing three dice. The results of which can be bet on in a number of different ways.
