Basic Sic Bo strategy

Low-risk Sic Bo strategy - keeping it simple

Low-risk, steady gamblers should use the bets with the smallest edge. The best edge in Sic Bo (2.78%) is to be found with the Small, Big and Combination bets.

Small and Big

The Small and Big bets are the closest to Evens chances in Sic Bo. This makes them ideal for our Gambling systems.

Any of these systems could be used, but based on our systems tests, we recommend using the 1-3-2-4 system, though the Paroli and 1-3-2-6 are also well worth considering.

A low-risk Sic Bo strategy is to place your bets on either Small or Big for a fixed number of rolls. Judge if the results are coming in alternately our consecutively (see Streaks) and bet accordingly.

Combination

The Combination bet (any two specific numbers) also has a very low house edge (2.77%) but is often overlooked when looking for a strategy to beat Sic Bo.

The odds against this bet winning are 6 to 1 (ie you can expect to win once in every 7 bets) and the payout is 6 to 1. It's not an Evens chance bet, so none of the systems applies, but it's worth checking out.

As a variation on a low-risk Sic Bo strategy, set aside 15 betting units and place Combination bets. Try to win two or three times. If you do this before the 15 bets are up, stop and take your winnings.

Perfect for beginners

This low-risk Sic Bo strategy is perfect for beginners or for those who want to limit their losses as they get familiar with the game. We've kept it simple, so you can approach the Sic Bo table with confidence.

Intermediate Sic Bo strategy

Medium-risk Sic Bo strategy - hedging your bets

If you're looking for bigger wins, but want to take out some 'insurance', our tip is to use a Sic Bo strategy of combining bets to cover a number of results.

Your winning strategy is to combine the bets so that you have four different chances of winning on each spin. Although you're losing four times your stake if you lose, the returns when you win will make up for this.

Which numbers should you bet on?

If 2 of the 3 dice throw a 1, the 3-dice total could be 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8, but not 9, 10, 11 or 12. So if you're betting on the total being higher than 8, place a bet on double 1 as well.

The same applies if 2 of the 3 dice throw a 6. In that case, the 3-dice total has to be more than 12, so bets on double 1 and 2 give you another chance.

The odds in Sic Bo, show that the bets on 9 and 12 give a payout closer to the chance of winning than many others (payouts 7-1, odds against 15-2 ie 7.5-1). A winning bet on a double (two of a kind) pays out at 11-1 with odds against of 13-1.

This Sic Bo strategy seeks to make a steady return which should allow for a small number of losing bets.

Our medium-risk Sic Bo strategy is to place multiple bets on two options:

Option 1

3 units on 9 and 2 units on double 1, 5, and 6.

This is a total bet of 9 units, with a possible return of:

24 units if 9 wins or

24 units if a double wins

Option 2

3 units on 12 and 2 units on double 1, 2 and 6.

This is a total bet of 9 units, with a possible return of:

24 units if 12 wins or

24 units if a double wins

More experienced Sic Bo player?

This medium-risk Sic Bo strategy is aimed at players who are familiar with the game, but who want a little more excitement than betting just Big / Small. Check out our recommended Sic Bo casinos below and give the intermediate Sic Bo strategy a spin - or three!

Advanced Sic Bo strategy

Higher-risk Sic Bo strategy - going for broke

The high roller Sic Bo strategy tries to ride your luck by winning on more than one bet for the same spin of the dice.

Using bets on 8, 9, 12, 13 and doubles, we look for ways to win twice in the same spin.

For example, a bet on 8 cannot include a bet on double 4,5 or 6 as the winning total would always be higher than 8. A bet on 8 could, however, include a double 1, 2, or 3 - and this is how you should stake your money.

Our high-roller Sic Bo strategy gives you four betting options:

Option 1

3 units on 8 and 2 units on double 1, 2, and 3.

This is a total bet of 9 units, with a possible return of:

27 units if 8 wins plus

24 units if a double wins

Overall potential return of 51 units.

Option 2

3 units on 9 and 2 units on double 2, 3 and 4.

This is a total bet of 9 units, with a possible return of:

24 units if 9 wins or

24 units if a double wins

Overall potential return of 48 units.

Option 3

3 units on 12 and 2 units on double 3, 4, and 5.

This is a total bet of 9 units, with a possible return of:

24 units if 12 wins or

24 units if a double wins

Overall potential return of 48 units.

Option 4

3 units on 13 and 2 units on double 4, 5, and 6.

This is a total bet of 9 units, with a possible return of:

27 units if 13 wins plus

24 units if a double wins

Overall potential return of 51 units.

Where to play online Sic Bo

The best online Sic Bo casinos

As explained on our Sic Bo strategies page, you need to play Sic Bo at a casino that gives the best odds on all bets. For our medium and high-risk strategies, the most important payout is the one on 9 and 12. Most casinos give a payout of 7 to 1, but some give just 6 to 1, which is important if you're intending to use these strategies.

If you're looking for a bonus, you need to be aware that not all casinos allow wagering on Sic Bo to count towards the rollover (the amount needed to release the bonus).

    Although the payout on 9 and 12 is 6 to 1, rather than the preferred 7 to 1, if you're playing our low-risk strategy we feel that offering the Sic Bo bonus places Betfair in front of Spin Palace and Ruby Fortune, neither of which allow Sic Bo play to count towards their sign-up bonuses.
