Pragmatic Sic Bo is a more traditional version of Sic Bo than Pragmatics’ previous release, Mega Sic Bo, which included multipliers with an enhanced paytable.
This version is simplified in its presentation but offers casinos the ability to customise the studio design due to the Green screen chromakey technology being used.
Therefore, you’ll likely see many presentations of this game, but they will be the same game, just dressed differently.
In this review, I’ll show you the standard presentation, explain how to play Pragmatic Sic Bo and discuss betting strategies.
If you’ve not played Sic Bo before, you’re in for a treat, as it’s a fun game that delivers more than you expect.
There are four sets of statistics and results trackers for Pragmatic Sic Bo.
The main results tracker, which runs along the bottom of the screen, displays the results for the previous eighteen game rounds. Each one shows the outcome of each dice and the cumulative total.
These two sets of statistics show the Big/Small and Odd/Even results.
They are presented in a roadmap format, reading left to right with a new column started each time the results change. This enables you to see the trends and sequence of results.
These are useful if you like following trends but don’t help you know what the following result will be.
I like to bet on trends in some games, and if I bet on these spots, I’d look at previous trends before deciding where to place my bet.
The last 100 game rounds are used to compile the results statistics. Every game aspect is broken down so you can see how it performs.
Over the long term, you’d expect an even distribution of results across all of the parts of the game. The game is random, so it shouldn’t favour one particular number or outcome.
However, displaying the last 100 results can give you a skewed view, so IR17;d advise caution if using this information to help you bet.
Specific statistics are available for:
The table below displays the bet types, explanations and the expected payouts.
The lowest risk bets are the Small/Big and Odd & Even Bets, which pay even money 1:1. You’ve got just under a 50% chance of winning these because the numbers three and eighteen are excluded for each set of results.
This gives Sic Bo a house edge of 2.78& or an RTP of 97.22%.
The best payout is for a specific Triple at 210:1, but the odds of that occurring are much higher!
The Total bet has a payout range of 70:1 to 6:1, depending on the total.

When faced with a game like Pragmatc Sic Bo, which has 52 betting options, it can be a bit overwhelming where to start.
So, here are my Betting Strategy Tips that should help you get going.
One of my main objectives when looking at betting strategies is not necessarily how I can win big. It’s more about managing my Bankroll, giving me a long, enjoyable playing session, and being in with a chance of getting some nice wins.
So here are my top betting tips.
My Betting Strategy for Pragmatic Sic Bo is based on picking one number between One and Six. I choose a number and bet on every spot containing that number. I don’t bet on Even money-paying bets.
For example, I pick number Five. I’ll place these bets.
I win when at least one of the dice is a five; I’ll also get combinations, doubles, and totals.
This strategy keeps my Bankroll turning over, and I can generally play for a long time.
I’m pleased that Pragmatic has released Sic Bo, while most of their peers seem to be removing their.
The base payouts are much better than the equivalent multiplier games, and while the top payouts are not as good, you get a better turnover of your bankroll with this version.
The customisable studio should be a big draw for the Casinos, as they’ll be able to brand the environment for not a great deal of cost, which will give players the feel of a more on-brand playing experience.
Pragmatic Play has a multiplier version of Sic Bo, Mega Sic Bo, which is worth trying.
Playtech has Sic Bo Deluxe and Speed Sic Bo.
If you plan to play the standard version of Sic Bo, Pragmatic Sic Bo Offers the best payouts of the three competitor games.
