How to Play Sic Bo at Star casino
As you know that Sic Bo is a popular Chinese game played with three dice where the object is to predict which numbers will appear on the dice once they are rolled. The best range from a specific triple with payout odds of 180 to 1 to betting on the value of one of the dice with payouts odds of 1 to 1.
To make a bet on Sic bo you need to place your chips on the opposite area of the table. Neither verbal nor cash bets are accepted at Star casino. You are responsible for the positioning of your own bets regardless of any assistance from the dealer. The dealer covers the dome and tumbles the dice and then announces to you to place your bets. Once the bets are places the dealer again announces no more bets and lifts the dome cover to reveal the winning combination. The numeric value of each dice is then entered into a keypad and all winning combinations are lit up on the Sic Bo layout. The dealer then removes losing bets from the table and pays winning bets.
The Odds of Winning
In Sic Bo three dice are tumbled and Players try to predict various combinations, totals and outcomes. House margins for each type of bet vary from 2.8% (big, small or combinations of two dice) to 16.2% for a specific triple. Sic Bo is a game of chance so there are no betting strategies to reduce these margins. Sic Bo is able to be played on an Electronic Terminal.
