Dice Game Rules
The modern version of this skill game is played with three dice and a cage shaker, played on a table with pictures displaying the 50 possible bets and their corresponding payouts.
Sicbo means dice pair but there is an element of intrigue here in the form of the third die. This skill game with a long history has evolved into a game of worldwide interest and is offered at many online casinos today.
The goal of the game is to bet on the possible results or a combination of results based on the three dice. Players bet their chips on any of these pictures on the table. The dealer then shakes the dice in the basket and rolls them out. If a winning combination is hit, the picture square lights up and the player is paid accordingly.
The odds and accordingly the house edge are calculated based on the complexity of the prediction or bet.
Example: Bet=Total score will be between 11-17 inclusive. Exception is a triple. Probability of Occurrence=48.61%. Odds=1 to 1 and House Edge=2.78%
Thus, if a player places his/her bet on the sum total of the result being between the numbers 11 and 17, this example considers all possible combinations of numbers on the three dice. Adding up to these digits turns out to be almost 50%, thus, the odds are 1:1 or hit or miss.
