Sic Bo is a very fun and popular dice game with its origins in ancient China. The name itself means ‘dice pair’. This is somewhat confusing at first because it is played with three dice instead of two. However, as you learn the game and develop your strategy you will begin to understand where the meaning dice pair came from. Sic Bo is a game that is played in just about every country. It is played by betting on the outcome of the roll of the three dice. The three dice are released from what is known as a birdcage. The birdcage is a wire container that tumbles the dice and then stops and reveals the value of each dice. Depending on your chosen bets and the outcome of the landing of the dice, you will win or lose that roll. Either way you will certainly anticipate the next roll of the birdcage.
There are various ways to place your bets: predict an individual number of one dice, predict the totals of dice combinations of doubles or triples, you can call big/small – small equals the sum of three dice value of 4 to 10 and big the sum of three dice equals 11 – 17, call odd/even, etc. Winnings are based on the table’s payout of ratios. The range of the ratios payouts can be 1 to 1 or anywhere up to 150 to 1. Of course, the greater the ratio, the greater the winning payout will be and the greater the risk. The range of risk is 2.78% to 30%. There is technically no way to predict the outcome of the dice with certainty, but it definitely is fun to try. First, you will want to check the betting limits of the table. Buy your chips and you are ready to place your bet(s). After you have placed your bets, you anticipate the roll of the birdcage and the value of the dice. Next, check to see if you won that roll. Now, place your bets again and wait for the next roll. You can do this over and over until you decide game over for now.
It is a simple but fun game. You can bet by giving the house the least percentage advantage or go for it big and bet where the risks are higher. One thing for certain, if you bet where the risks are higher/highest, and you win, you win BIG! Either way you decide to bet you can have excitement with the anticipation and outcome of the value of the tumble of the birdcage.
