Sic Bo is an ancient Chinese dice game still played in many Southeast Asian countries where it is known as Big and Small.

How to play

Sic Bo is played with three dice. For each game, the player attempts to predict the outcome of the three dice.

Sic Bo is both exciting and easy to play, and offers players a wide variety of options. Payouts range from even money up to 150 to 1.

The Bets

The betting options available at Sic Bo are formed by the various combinations obtained with three dice. These wagers and their payouts are reproduced on the gaming table

Using value chips purchased from the dealer, players place their bets on the table in the space(s) corresponding to their wager(s), ensuring that minimum and maximum table limits are respected for each individual wager.

Players may wager on as many combinations as desired per game. A wager wins if, after the three dice are shaken, their outcome corresponds to the player's bet.

Payouts

After all bets have been made, the dealer activates the dice shaker. The outcome of each of the three dice appears on the display. At the same time, the spaces corresponding to the winning combinations light up* on the table. The dealer then removes all losing bets from the table and proceeds to pay all winners.

* The spaces light up by way of indication only; should there be a discrepancy between the lit spaces and the real outcome of the three dice, the real outcome takes precedence.
