In Sic Bo three dice are tumbled and Players try to predict various combinations, totals and outcomes. House margins for each type of bet vary from 2.8% (big, small or combinations of two dice) to 16.2% for a specific triple. Sic Bo is a game of chance so there are no betting strategies to reduce these margins.
