Online sic bo is a dice game where players win money by betting on the outcome of rolling three dice. Players have a wide range of betting options, which include betting on what numbers are rolled, the combined value of two or three dice, whether a number will appear over the three dice rolled, and many others. Some of the bets have payouts as high as 180-to-1.

Sic bo originates in China, where it directly translates to “dice pair”. Legend has it that sic bo was originally played with bricks that would be shaken between two plates and an overturned bowl. The evolution of this to three dice and a cage shaker allowed it to spread and become very popular in Western casinos. These days, it’s commonly found in Asian gaming rooms, and there's still usually at least one sic bo table in the large Las Vegas casinos.

Sic bo is very similar to roulette. This is both a blessing and a curse: a blessing because players familiar with roulette will have no trouble picking up the rules, a curse because sic bo is so similar to roulette — but with worse payouts and odds — and so is often overlooked.

Fortunately for fans of sic bo, the online revolution has come just in the nick of time for this game to experience a resurgence in popularity. The game adapts well to the online environment, where a simple game is made even simpler.
