Sic Bo is a table game with Chinese origins and just by the sheer looks of it the game may seem very complicated but they rules are as simple as it can be; you have to predict the outcome of three dices. Many describe Sic-Bo as the oriental version of Craps with the betting format of a Roulette table but it is some of the unique features of this classic table game that makes it a very interesting and engaging dice game. Sic-Bo can be a thrilling game for a high risk player but can also an exciting start for a newbie as it offers a plethora of betting options of all risks and payouts.
When you first look, the table may seem like it’s cramped with dozens of bets but they are nothing but the outcomes of 3 dices on which you have to place bets on. The whole betting area can be divided into 4 horizontal sections. The top one has all the high risk high return bets and as you go lower you will see more low risk low return bets. At the very bottom section, you will find each of the 6 possible numbers on a dice. Placing a chip on any one of them means that you predict a roll of the three dices will result in any one of those numbers. At the top of the table towards the middle you can see ‘Any Triple’ which pays 6 to 1; this bet means you predict that all three dices will show the same number after the roll. The bets are self-explanatory and the same concept applies for all the bet options.
