    Anyone know how to low-risk bet Sic bo?
    I've never played the game, but I've heard you can do this.

    If you do - get over to Trident Lounge before they correct their obvious error!! :D

    There's no such thing as a low-risk bet in sic-bo, baccarat, craps or roulette.

    There are bets where you are able to set your variance to 0, and make your expected loss on each hand = to your actual loss.

    There are two schools of thought as to why casinos disallow these games when bonuses are involved.

    1) They don't want a player to run up a large balance, and then grind out the wagering requirement on a game where the player can calculate the exact loss that he will incur during that amount of wagering. They'd rather have the player play a game with some volatility, to increase the chance that the player will hit a losing streak, causing the player to continue to wager after meeting the wagering requirement, in an attempt to win his money back

    2) Casino operators have the math skills of a jelly donut

    While #1 is plausible, I personally believe that casino operators actually think it's possible to place a bet with no house advantage in the aforementioned games.

    The lowest house edge bet in sic bo is 2.78%. This means that $1 of bonus money has an EV of only $0.166 when playing sic bo. However, since roulette is only discounted to 67% it is actually a much better deal to play that. French roulette has a 1.36% house edge, and $1 in bonus money has an EV of $0.386.

    Errm, a 0 variance bet is a low risk bet.

    Sometimes I get this feeling, too.

    Sorry, but that statement is clearly wrong.
    There are low-risk bets, what there are not are no-risk bets.
    Even I know how to low-risk bet Craps & Roulette! ;)

    I just know SicBo can be great fun... I've not played it in ages, but used to always plop a single chip on the big triple ones - then the six, seven, eights etc for the rest of my chips. You could get some long term fun and the occasional biggie :D
