Sic Bo is dice game where three dice are rolled to determine the outcome of the game. It's a game that originally was played in ancient China but now is enjoyed at casinos all around the world. Sic Bo meaning Dice Pair can be played at most online casinos and most offline casinos. Although in LasVegas you may have to look around to find this game because these casinos tend to put these tables in a less traveled sections of the casino.

Very much like the game of roulette, Sic Bo offers players the option to place a wide variety of bets. These can include bet on small, bet on large, bet on two dice and many more.

The game will start once all players have completed placing their bets on the table. Once all bets have been placed then 3 dice are rolled in a cage. Depending on the outcome of the roll some players will win and some will lose. After the dice have been rolled the croupier will then collect the losing bets and then he or she will pay out the winning bets according to the odds of the game.
