Live Dealer Casinos Provide a More Exciting Version of Sic Bo

Author: Neha Agrawal

One game which works very well in Live Dealer Casinos is Sic Bo. The Asian game involving three dice has elements of both Roulette and Craps but with potentially even bigger payoffs. It has only become legal in the United Kingdom in recent years, but it is already quite popular and offered by a number of Live Dealer Casinos.

If you are not familiar with Sic Bo, there are three dice which will be rolled, or actually juggled in a shaker (they are not thrown as in a craps game.) A wide variety of bets can be made in the game. There are four basic bets which pay off at even odds and are reminiscent of Roulette. You can bet odd or even or you can bet big (the three dice will total 11-17) or small (total 3-10.)

There are many other types of bets also offered in Sic Bo. You can bet on a specific number to come up on one or two of the dice. You can also bet on coupled numbers. If you want to make a bet that the three dice will total 4 or 17-two of the most unlikely numbers-that bet pays off at 60-1. The biggest payoff offered is 180-1 that one specific number will come in on all three dice. This bet is called the Triple.

When you access your Live Dealer Online Casino, either through your computer or your mobile device, you will be taken to a studio where the live Sic Bo game is being played. You will see the large betting menu on the table in front of you where you can place your simulated chips.

Normally, the dealer is standing behind the counter waiting for all bets to be made. The screen will alert you as to how much time you have left to make a bet. The dealer then turns on the shaker which juggles the three dice and produces the winning number. The winning bets are paid off and the losing bets are collected.

Sic Bo is certainly enhanced by the Live Dealer Casino presentation. In other online versions of Sic Bo which do not have a live dealer, the three dice are simulated and their numbers are picked by a computer. That may be just as legitimate a way of selecting the numbers, but watching a live dealer producing the outcome in the little machine-with the camera moving in for a close-up on the dice-is much more exciting, especially if you win.
