How to Play Sic Bo

Sic Bo is one of the standard casino games. But for those of you new to the game, we have all the info you need. We’ll let you know how to play Sic Bo and give you all the game rules so that you’ll be able to start enjoy playing this great game.

Sic Bo is a Chinese word for “dice pair”. The game itself originates in ancient China. In spite of the name, three dice are used in the game. The idea of the game is simple – you make a bet on a certain kind of a dice roll result. Then the dice are rolled. If the result you bet on does appear, you win; if it does not, you lose your bet.

  • Click on a chip of desired value to select it. Then click on any bet area on the table to place your bet there. Every click on the area adds one chip to the bet. Select another chip if you wish to increase the bet by some other amount. Right clicking on the area removes one chip. You can place several chips into several areas at the same time.
  • Click the Roll button.

Dice are now rolled and you will see the game result. Click New Game if you wish to play again. Place your bets as described above and click Roll. You can also click Rebet to place the same bet as in the previous round.

Sic Bo Bets

You may place multiple bets at the same time. You can identify the different bet areas on the table by placing the cursor on an area and reading the info text on the status bar (the low edge of the screen). Sic Bo features the following betting options:

Small/Big Bet:

Status bar info text on these areas is “Small” or “Big”. Small Bet wins if the total sum of the three dice is 4 to 10. Big Bet wins on a total of 11 to 18. Neither Small nor Big Bet wins if the three dice are of the same number (three of a kind).
