Sic Bo is a dice game from China. In some parts of the world, you can still find casinos where Sic Bo is played with dices showing the Chinese symbols for fish, shrimp, crab, rooster, goard, and coin, but using dotted dices is much more common internationally, especially outside Asia.
Sic Bo is played with three dices, and the name Sic Bo actually means Precious Dice.
At the Sic Bo table, you can make many different bets. The riskier a bet is, the more you get paid if you actually win.
