SicBo Strategy Betting Analysis Game Introduction
Sic Bo, normally known as betting on the sum points of all the dice played. Players place their bets before the house rolled the dice.
Then the house will place three dice in a cup and start rolling it. Once the players have completed betting then the house will stop and open the cup, revealing the sum points.
The most common bets are betting on big or small, the points between 4-10 are small while 11-17 are big, if all the points on the dice are the same then the house takes all.
It's a game that the house is forever in advantage of so the players can't win with physical skills. House wins in the long run.
Sic Bo is an ancient Chinese gambling game in which the players bet on the result of the three dice in the cage.
You can be betting on one or more numbers on the table and the bet option has been divided into several areas. Each area represents different betting results.
Once the bet were placed, the dice will start rolling and the result will show on the up-right side of the screen.
There's a column divided into 6 betting areas at the bottom side of the table. This is the area you can bet on the numbers you think the final result may contain.
If one of the dice's numbers is the one you bet on, then your odds are 1 to 1. If two of the dice's numbers are the ones you bet on, then it's 1 to 2. If all three of the dice's numbers are the ones you bet on, then it's 1 to 3
Combination of two numbers
The winning odds of two combination numbers are 1 to 5. Say you bet that at least two of the dice will show a 5 and a 3, and the result is 4, 3, and 5. then your prize money is 6 times your original betting size.
If the result comes in 3, 3, and 5, then the winning is the same. Say you bet on multiple combinations and if it all appears, then you will win each of your bets.
You're betting for the sum of the total three dice in this area. If the sum is 3 or 18 or three a kind number, then you lost the bet. The different number in that area means a different odd, you can check the odd chart down below.
Big or small
You are betting for a big or small number here, the odds are all 1 to 1. Big refers to the numbers between 11 to 17 and small refers to the numbers between 4 to 10. If the result is three of a kind, you lose as well.
How to Bet in SicBo
A lot may think that Sic Bo is a game of luck purely, though still there are some things we can do to manage our betting strategy and give us an edge.
So how should we reduce our betting risk? Let's take a look:
Risk means the possibility that we suffer loss from the procedure of gambling. Without risk then that's no excitement. So we should know which type of risk we can bear before we choose our strategy.
The so-called low-risk strategy means that we bet on the side where there's less house advantage such as betting on Big or small ( in which the house advantage is only 2.78%) and numbers.
This is the one that's the most suitable for the amateurs. It's simple and easy to control. Though the return is low so if you are seeking a better profit, you can look for a strategy with higher risk.
Median-risk strategy→Conservative players
It's suitable for those who wish to win a decent amount without risking too much. This is a strategy betting on mixed options.
Say if two of the dice show point 1, then the sum of our dice can be between 3 to 8. So if you wish to bet on the sum that's bigger than 8, might as well bet on number 1 since this is a diversified investment, splitting the risks.
If you wish to bet it all, better bet on 9, 10, 11, and 12 since these are the numbers are the one that has the most opportunity to become the result. You may bet it like this
- Bet on the area sum is 9 with three units and then bet on a pair of 1, 5, and 6 with two units each.
- Bet on the area sum is 12 with three units and then bet on a pair of 1, 2, and 6 with two units each.
The reason why we bet like this is that we can win 18 units if we are right with the sum. If we are right with the pair, we won 20 units. If we are wrong both, we lose 9 units. So you see it's a strategy with decent risk but good profit.
High-risk strategy→Aggresive players
High risk comes with high reward. If you are lucky and you can bear more risk, then I suggest you try out this high-risk strategy. Bet on the combination of the points, like when the sum is 8, there's no pair of 4, 5, or 6 but only pairs of 1, 2, and 3.
- Bet on the sum of 8 with 3 units and 2 units on the pair of 1, 2, and 3.
- Bet on the sum of 8 with 3 units and 2 units on the pair of 4, 5, and 6.
If you win you can win 24 units with the number bet or 20 units with the pair bets. If you hit them all, you can win 44 units, which is a high reward already.
