How to Play Sic Bo
Sic Bo is an ancient Chinese dice game. The name Sic Bo literally means “dice pair”; the name is somewhat of a misnomer since the game is actually played with three dice. This ancient game can now be played online at Betsand.
The Rules of Sic Bo
The rules of Sic Bo are easy to understand. The object of a Sic Bo game is to wager/bet on the outcome of the roll of the three dice. You make your bet by first choosing your chip size, and then placing your chips on the area of the Sic Bo table corresponding to the bet you want to make. Remember that you can make multiple Sic Bo bets on the same roll of the Sic Bo dice, and they can be for different amounts if you so choose.
