Is a simplified, American version of Sic Bo and is mostly found in carnivals. It is often played for charities and prizes and not for gambling. Only one type of bet is possible in this version: a bet on one single number occurring. It pays 1-to-1 if the number occurs once, 2-to-1 if the number occurs twice and 10-to-1 if the number
occurs three times.


The game is played with three dice and has very bad odds. Five common bets are available: single number, triples, high, low and
field. The single number bet pays 1-to-1 for each occurrence, triples means that all dices show the same value and it pays 30-to-1. Lo wins a total of 10 or less and loses on triples, pays 1-to-1 and high wins a total of over 10, loses on triples and pays 1-to-1.

Grand Hazard

Sic Bo Strategies

In online gaming, there are a few things that will define your  strategy. You need to figure out how much you are willing to lose and base your strategy on that.

High risk

If you want to increase the chances of winning you can play
multiple bets at a time. This comes at a high risk and you need to have a good strategy. For example, place the bets only on the large numbered block at the center of the table for the highest wins. A bet
on 8 can include a double 1, 2, or 3.

Medium risk

Medium risk combines the potential of high wins with the caution of low-risk playing. This strategy combines various bets to ensure
a broader coverage and is based on combinations that have four various chances of winning each time. This will mean you lose four times what you bet when you lose but also that you win four times
what you bet if you win.

Low risk

It is the best way to go for beginners. This is the safest way the game can be played to minimize loss but you should also keep in mind it minimizes the potential win also.

The strategy depends mainly on your goal and on how much you’re willing to lose. If you want to test the various strategies if Sic Bo it’s better to play for free a few times and see what works before you lose your money.
