Sic Bo, meaning "dice pair" is an ancient Chinese gambling game. Today it is one of the lesser known casino games and is often confined to designated rooms for Asian games. The game uses three dice and a table with a variety of betting options on the roll of those dice. The odds and table layout may also vary from place to place. If you must play Sic Bo I would suggest sticking to only the 'low' and 'high' bets.

Following is a list of the best available. This information is based on the games at the Riviera in Las Vegas and the Trump Plaza in Atlantic City. All Atlantic City casinos likely follow the same rules. The Mirage in Las Vegas also offers sic bo and follows the Atlantic City rules.
