Hand in hand with baccarat, sic bo is another authentic Asian casino game that’s slowly been conquering the western world. Gold Deluxe has no intention of selling it just like that; instead, they wish to keep the tradition alive and teach it to the new generations of Asian bettors. Sic bo is an incredibly easy game to play, and a well-executed live dealer format can truly bring it to life and get as close as possible to brick and mortar reality. Live Casino House customers have the chance to experience Gold Deluxe Live Sic Bo in the Tokyo collection, with a registered, funded account.
The idea behind Gold Deluxe Live Sic Bo is not to dazzle the audience with something they’ve never seen before. Of course, the interface quality is good and the camerawork is beyond reproach, but don’t expect any wizardry. You can expect, on the other hand, friendly dealers, a 30-second window to place a bet, a choice between Specific Total bets and Combination bets a statistical report looking back on previous rounds.
The main prop in any sic bo game are the dice. Gold Deluxe Live Sic Bo Tokyo is no exception. Three red dice are kept in a container controlled by the croupier. In the desktop version of the game, you will also see digitally rendered dice rolling across the table showing the outcome. In the mobile version, the video feed is stretched across the entire screen and in the moment when the dice are tumbled inside the shaker the camera zooms in and gives a good view of the outcome or the roll. The player, of course, places a wager on the said outcome of the dice roll, before the action is executed.
There are many possible bets. The Specific Total bets include Big, Small, 4 or 17, 5 or 16, 6 or 15, 7 or 14, 8 or 13, 9/10/11 or 12. The Combination bets are Specific Triple, Any Triple, Specific Double, Pair Match and Number Set (Single, Double, Triple). They pay different odds, from 1:1 to 180:1. Considering the wide range of betting options, 30 seconds to place a wager isn’t really that much time. Therefore, its best for the player to get to know all the betting possibilities before the wagers are placed and the counter runs out.
Live Sic Bo Tokyo by Gold Deluxe features decent streaming quality and a simple game interface that makes navigation super easy. Some players may feel the absence of the studio sounds and the croupier’s voice to be a downside, but we’d say that the absence of live chat is just as big of a problem. Other aspects of the game are satisfactory, and if we take into consideration that live casino sic bo games are rare, we’re lucky to have the Gold Deluxe version available.
