Ever heard of “Precious dice” or Sic Bo, Tai sai? Probably not. Well, this is an old game that originates from ancient Chinese culture. It is a game of dice, three dice to be specific. It is among the less popular games in Canada. Like any other gambling game, whether modern or traditional, the Sic Bo game is based on luck.
Sic Bo is played with three dice whereby the players place their bet on the outcome of a single roll. The game can be found in many bingo halls in Canada as well as on various online sites.
Players are required to place their bets on certain areas of the table. The dice are thrown by the dealer only, something different from popular dice games like Craps where the contenders roll the dice themselves. In land-based casinos, the dice are usually contained within a small chest.
The dealer will then shake the chest and open to reveal the results. It’s vwey easy to see why the Craps and Sic Bo are compared. However, Sic Bo is strictly a game of chance since each roll outcome is a loss or win of the bet while Craps has certain bets that require specific rolls before results are revealed.
