What is Sic Bo?

Sic Bo was developed from an ancient Chinese Dice game where it has been played for centuries.
Sic Bo (pronounced ‘See Bo’) is Chinese meaning "Dice Pair".
It is also known as Tai Sai (Lucky Dice) and Dai Siu (Big Small).
Sic Bo was introduced to the USA in the early 20th century as a carnival game.
There are also European variants of Sic Bo known as Grand Hazard and Chuck-a-Luck.
Sic Bo is a fast-paced, no-nonsense game that appeals to players who enjoy Craps and Roulette.
This is a betting game that requires both precision and intuition.

The name implies the game is played with 2 Dice, but it’s actually played with 3 Dice.
The main aim of Sic Bo is to predict the value of the 3 Dice.
Bets are placed on the Sic Bo table; the 3 Dice are shaken in a metal or glass cylinder, and then rolled out on the table with multiple betting areas where the outcome of the bet can be determined.

The player must guess a number or a series of specific numbers.
Some online casinos tend to modernize the procedure of shaking the case, which they regard as mostly ceremonial or obsolete.
In Sic Bo everything depends entirely on the outcome of a roll of the 3 Dice which makes it virtually impossible to predict with 100% certainty which numbers will come up.
Many players have tried to discover a miracle strategy hoping to find that elusive win, but no luck.
The only thing to do is to pay close attention to your bets and not go overboard!
Sic Bo Features
To place a Sic Bo bet, use the [+] and [-] buttons to select the size of the chip to wager, click on the area of the virtual Sic Bo table that corresponding to the bet you want to make.

Once bets have placed, click the Roll button. See the dice rolling around until they come to rest in their final position.
Playing the Game
Sic Bo is played on a table with 3 Dice, where you place a wager on one of the many bet options indicated on the table layout.
The Dice are then placed in a cylinder and given a fair shake.
The Dice will be rolled over the table where the results of the Dice are revealed.
If you have bet on any of these spots, you get paid according to the odds on the paytable.
Small Bet: Expect the sum total of the roll of the dice to be between 4 and 10.

Big Bet: Expect the sum total of the dice will be between 11 and 17.
With the odds being 1:1 you might win less money than in a small bet, but a greater chance of winning!
Sum Total Bet: Correctly select the number you think the dice will add up to for a big win.

Triple Bet: Two types - Specific and Non-Specific where you can choose which particular triple will hit and if ‘any type of triple’ will hit, both with different odds and payouts.
Multiple Bets:  For example, bet that 2 dice show the same number and that the sum total of the
3 dice will be between 6 and 12. If both bets hit on the same roll then it’s a big payday!
