Payout Ratios in Sicbo Games

Sicbo is a hybrid game similar to Risk, wherein players take turns selecting a series of cards and then perform actions dependent on these cards, which are then placed in front of them. When the players have all the cards in play, they rotate around a random location, until each player has had his turn and does so again. Thus, the game is referred to as “sicBO”, which means “same but different”. The rules of Sic Bo are simple: one player sits in front of the others, and the game is over when one makes a winning roll.


Betting in Sicbo can be complicated for beginners. In contrast to other games where bluffing is a popular method to win, in Sicbo a player will be happy to reveal his hand if he is wrong, so long as he follows the betting rules and does not exceed his bankroll. As such, there is a higher chance of losing than winning, but beginners should be wary of not betting beyond a specific limit that he has set himself. If at all he is willing to exceed this limit, he should only do so when he has reached a win condition that is worth it, otherwise he should stick to his initial limit.

In addition to the aforementioned factors affecting a player’s odds of winning or losing in a sicbo game, there are many other variables as well, that are beyond the control of the players themselves. For example, during a Sicbo game, each player is dealt a finite number of dice, one at a time. These dice are then arranged in the proper pattern, such that there is a ninety percent chance of a particular group hitting another group, and then a single group hitting the next group. It is possible that an ace group could have the same odds as a three of a kind group, but there is a much greater chance that an ace can comprise of more numbers than a three of a kind group, and vice versa. All of these factors together can affect the overall payout ratio of a sicbo game to a large extent.
