Craps has always been the king of casino dice games, but an ancient Chinese dice game called Sic Bo is catching up. In the past few years, alongside the rapid growth in popularity of live casino games, Sic Bo has become a player favourite.
Pragmatic Play Live Casino released Mega Sic Bo to cater to player demand. In this Pragmatic Play Live Mega Sic Bo review, we’ll show you how this live game works, and we’ll tell you our honest opinion about its pros and cons.
Streamed to you from Pragmatic Play’s Bucharest studio through HD cameras and hosted by beautiful live dealers, Pragmatic Play Live Mega Sic Bo is a game you won’t want to miss out on.

- Sic Bo bets can pay between 1x and 150x. We’ll tell you more about Mega Sic Bo bets below.
- You can wager between £0.05 and £1,000 per bet on Mega Sic Bo. It’s a game for conservative players as well as high rollers.
How to Play Pragmatic Play Live Mega Sic Bo
As with every live casino game review we’ve ever written, we played this one ourselves, so this information is first-hand and legitimate. Here’s what will happen when you play Mega Sic Bo online.
- When you first enter the red and gold Mega Sic Bo studio, the game host will invite you to place your bets. The betting window lasts for 15 seconds.
- As soon as the betting window closes, the three dice will begin to roll inside the glass casing. The camera angle will change to give you a closer view of the dice.
- There are 52 bets that you can make on each roll. Up to several positions on the Mega Sic Bo board will have random multipliers applied to them. These multipliers can lead to payouts of up to 1,000x.
- The drum inside the glass case will stop vibrating, and the dice will stop rolling. You’ll see the results of how the three dice land and they will be displayed on the screen in digital form.
- If you win, payouts will be credited to your account immediately. If you lose, you’ll be debited, and a new betting round will begin.
Mega Sic Bo Multipliers
Let’s take a closer look at both the standard Sic Bo payouts and the enhanced Mega Payouts with the multipliers. Payouts will always depend on what bet you make, and you can make more than one bet on each roll.

As this table makes obvious, the harder the combination is to make, the bigger the potential payouts and Mega Payouts can be.
To win the 999:1 payouts, you’ll have to get lucky twice – you’ll have to bet on this outcome and win, and you’ll have to hope the Mega multiplier is applied to it by the RNG when you do.
Positives of Mega Sic Bo
What are the best things about Mega Sic Bo? Let’s consider them first.
- Entertainment – This is a fast-paced and incredibly exciting game. Sic Bo is fun, but when you add the multipliers into the mix, it’s even more thrilling.
- Payouts – Let’s be honest, aside from entertainment, we want to make money when we play live dealer games, right? Few live games offer payouts this big. You could make a lot of money playing this game.
- Effects – Everything about this game is inviting and seductive. The studio is easy on the eye, the camerawork is flawless, and every detail has been thought out for a great gaming experience.
What Could Be Improved?
No game is perfect. Here are some of the things that could be improved.
Payouts – While we listed this as a positive feature above, the payouts have a downside. The payouts in Mega Sic Bo are lower than rival game Sic Bo Deluxe from Playtech. For example, the Mega payout on 5 or 16 is 249:1 in this game, whereas it’s 299:1 in Playtech’s live Sic Bo game. This is true of several other bets.
Pace – We enjoyed the fast pace of this game, but each round is over quickly after you make your bet. Some players prefer a more interactive, drawn-out game. That’s for you to decide.
This is a great live Sic Bo game, and it’s well worth your time. It’s a shame that some of the payouts aren’t as big as Playtech’s version, but they’re not too much lower, and we prefer this game from an aesthetic point of view. Give it a try at Mr. Green or one of the other Pragmatic Play live casinos. Good luck, and we hope you win the 1,000x payout.
