|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.
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:
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 17. Neither Small nor Big Bet wins if the three dice are of the same number (three of a kind).
The Small and Big Bet payoff ratio is 1 to 1.
Placing a number bet means you want a specific number to appear on as many dice as possible. Select a number from 1 to 6 and place your chip(s) on the corresponding area. Status bar info text for these areas is "One", "Two", "Three", etc.
If the chosen number appears 1 time your bet pays 1 to 1, if it appears 2 times your bet pays 2 to 1 and if it appears 3 times your bet pays 3 to 1.
Make a bet on any of the 15 possible two dice combinations (for example 3 and 4; 2 and 5 or 2 and 6). Status bar info text for these bets is "Pair". If both numbers appear, your bet pays 6 to 1.
Placing a total bet means you want the total sum of the three dice to be a certain amount. Possible totals are from 4 to 17. 3 and 18 (which are also possible with three dice) are excluded. Status bar info text for these bet areas is "Total of 4", "Total of 5", "Total of 6", etc.
You bet on a specific pair to appear (for example, two 3's). Status bar info text for these areas is "Double One", "Double Two", "Double Three", etc. If at least two of the number chosen appear, you win 10 to 1.
You bet on a specific triple to appear (for example, three 2's). Status bar info text for there areas is "Triple One", "Triple Two", "Triple Three", etc. If the chosen triple appears, you win 180 to 1.
You win if all three dice have the same number (any three of a kind). Status bar info text for this area is "Any Triple". Payoff ratio for this bet is 30 to 1.
Dice are now rolled and you will see the game result. Place your bets as described above and click Roll. You can also click Re bet to place the same bet as in the previous round.
