gaming tips sic bo



Sic Bo History


Sic Bo is also known as tai sai, dai siu, big and small or hi-lo, the game name varying from country to country. Sic Bo is a Chinese game of chance played with three dice which is very popular in Asia. The Chinese immigrants brought it to the United States in 20th century. It may not be a profitable game, but it provides a lot of fun. Nowadays, in addition to several of the North American Casinos, the game is available online.



Sic Bo Rules


 Sic Bo is an ancient Chinese game which consists of three dice and a table. To start the game, the player has to place the chip he wants to bet on the table in the special area. There are 8 different ways the player can bet (payout is given using the table in the image above):


1) Three of a Kind – betting on one number that has to appear on all three dice. As there are 216 (6 x 6 x 6) dice combinations and only one can give you a three of a kind, the chances to win with this bet are really slim, but the pay is usually really big (in this case payout is 180 to 1).

Sic Bo Strategy


Sic Bo is a game with no successful strategy. Player must only predict the final outcome of rolling the dice which is completely random and out of player’s control. The Small and Big Bets are the least risky for the players. With a Single Number Bet the player is able to gain the higher payout, however the possibility of winning is much lower. The specific Triple has the highest payout of all, but players have to remember that it is highly unlikely to get the same three numbers.
