How to play: Super Sic Bo

Super Sic Bo by Evolution gaming takes the classic Chinese dice game of Sic Bo and shakes things up by adding random multipliers up to 1000x. Because Sic Bo is perhaps not as familiar to Western audiences as other table games, we thought we’d take the time to explain how it works. So stick around and you can learn to play Super Sic Bo right here at Vera&John online casino.

What is Sic Bo?


Sic Bo is a game of chance that originated in China, played by placing bets on the outcome of three six-sided dice. Sic Bo literally means “precious dice” and has been compared by some to Craps, and by others to Roulette. Like Sic Bo, Craps uses dice. However, where Craps is a game that requires a fair bit of strategic thinking in order to win, Sic Bo is completely random.

Comparisons with Roulette are slightly fairer, and when you first set eyes on a Sic Bo table, it’s okay to feel as overwhelmed as you did when you sat down to play Roulette for the first time. There’s a lot going on, but once you understand what everything on the board represents, the game is actually very simple and lots of fun!

How can I play Super Sic Bo at Vera&John?


You make bets on Sic Bo in much the same way as you would in Roulette. First decide on your stake and place your chips on any of the betting positions on the board. Unlike Roulette, instead of spinning a tiny white ball around a wheel, the outcome of your wager is determined by result three six-sided dice.

Looking at the betting area you will see the types of bets you can make, as well as your expected payout should that result come up.

You can place as many bets as you like, keeping them to one place, or spreading them around to cover lots of different areas, depending on how comfortable you feel spreading your bets around.

Along the top row from left to right, you can see: small bet (the total is a number from 4-10), bets on the total being odd, bets on doubles, bets on specific triples, bets on any triple, bets on the total coming up even, and big bet (the total is a number from 11-17).

The line immediately below that lets you bet on a specific total outcome ranging from 4 to 17, and below that, you can make a combination bet, which is a bet on outcome of any two dice. Finally, on the last line you can bet on the outcome of any single die.

Types of bets:
• Small Bet/Big Bet: bet that outcome of the roll is Small, 4-10, or Big 11-17.
• Odd/Even: bet that the total outcome of the roll is odd or even.
• Double: bet that the result of any two dice is a specific double.
• Total Bet: Bet on the total outcome of the roll from 4-17.
• Triples: bet on one of the six triples, from treble 1 to treble 6.
• Any Triple: Bet that the outcome of the roll is any triple result.
• Combination bet: bet on any (or all) of the 15 possible two-dice combinations.
• Single bet: bet that at least one of the dice shows a specific number.

After placing your bet, the dice are automatically rolled and the croupier will call out the results, including those highlighted by random multipliers.

For example, if the dice show the numbers 2, 4, and 4, these winning bets will be highlighted on the table: small, total 190, double 4, two-dice combination 2 and 4, single die 2, and single die 4.

Is Super Sic Bo really random?


Yes. Every roll is carried out by a purpose-built dice roller to ensure that the results are completely random.

How do random Multipliers work in Super Sic Bo?


Super Sic Bo adds an extra level of excitement to the traditional Sic Bo game in the form of random multipliers. Once you’ve placed your bets, but before the dice are rolled, a random number of betting positions, chosen at random, will be highlighted with multipliers up to 1000x. If you’ve chosen one of these spots and win, your payout will be multiplied accordingly!

For example, if you chose to place $5.00 wagers on small bet, 10, and the combination of 3&4, and small bet is highlighted with a 50x multiplier. If the total of the three rolled dice is between 4 and 10, your winnings will be multiplied by 50!

What are some betting tips for Super Sic Bo?


If you’re a Super Sic Bo beginner, it can be a little daunting deciding where to place your bets, so we’ve whipped up a few basic tips to help you get started.

Avoid triples: by all means do bet on triples if you’re feeling lucky, but the odds of any specific triple coming up is 150:1. The payout is tasty, but triples are pretty rare, so never make them your main bet.

Keep your eye on the dice stats: Super Sic Bo keeps stats on previous dice rolls, including individual die results and totals, to help you make your bets. The stats, displayed to the right of the play area, also show how often Big and Small bets have won, and how often triples showed up on the dice.

Despite its somewhat intimidating appearance, Super Sic Bo is loads of fun. Its simple gameplay hides deep levels of complexity and we hope you’ll enjoy getting to grips with it. We certainly did!
