On my first trip to Las Vegas, I did what a lot of people do – I only played slot machines, video poker and a few spins of Roulette, and avoided everything else. The other games all looked confusing, the players surrounding them were intimidating and the dealers looked like they’d rather give up their tips for a year than help out a beginner player. But on my second trip, a friend introduced me to Sic Bo by saying “it’s as easy as Roulette, but with more chances for big wins,” and I spent most of the next two days with my eyes glued to those three bouncing dice.
Of course, now that you can play all your favorite games online, the intimidation factor is gone anyway. But all the things that make Sic Bo great still exist – how incredibly easy it is to learn, how many different types of bets and odds you can play, and those nice big payouts my friend promised me. When you play Sic Bo here at Silver Oak, you can learn about all the different kinds of bets right here. And as far as the game mechanics go, they’ll take about two seconds to learn. All you have to do is click on a chip to decide how much to bet, then click on the table to place your bets wherever you want. Once you’ve placed all your bets, click to roll the dice, then wait a second to see if you guessed right.
Like with Roulette, when you play Sic Bo, it’s fun to spread your bets around. I like to place a few bets with pretty low odds, but a higher frequency of winning, and then a couple longshot bets, that have a nice, big payout. I almost always place a small bet the dice will come up “2, 2, 2”, for example. I don’t hit it all that often, but when I do the payout is 180:1, so my $2 bet wins me $360! Hopefully you’ll like Sic Bo as much as I do. To give it a shot, find it in the games menu under “Specialty Games”. Or if you’re new to Silver Oak, download our free software right now:
