Sic Bo is a popular casino game created in accordance with a purely oriental tradition. In this simple gambling game, players bet on the combinations of a dice roll. In fact, its name translated from Chinese refers to a pair of dice. Fast-paced and easy-to-play, sic bo is widely known across Asian land-based casinos. Slowly, it began to infiltrate online casino floors too. It has yet to conquer the western markets, but for now live casino sic bo does a good job entertaining fans of said game in a way that is as close as possible to a real life casino experience.
SA Gaming Live Sic Bo Shanghai is one of more high-quality variants available on the market. The game was developed by the Philippine company and added to an existing portfolio of live baccarat games, live roulette and other Asian-facing games like live dealer fantan and Dragon Tiger. It is available at Live Casino House in the Shanghai casino room. SA Gaming’s sic bo features a human dealer and utilizes three dice. Instead of the dealer rolling them on the table, the dice are in a glass container which acts as an automatic shaker on command.
The round starts when the countdown starts. Players have 40 seconds to place their bets, cancel their initial bets and place new ones, confirm their choices and wait for the dealer to finally shake the dice inside the container. The croupier does so as soon as the clock stops by pressing a green button. The view on the dice container is zoomed in, but just in case there is always a digital representation of the outcome of all three dice at the end of each round. The betting area has taken the form of a digitally rendered table upon which all the available bets are marked. There is a choice of two layouts.
SA Gaming employs native Asian croupiers, but the players cannot chat with them, only hear their voice as they comment on the outcome of the game or indicate the begging and the ending of a specific round. Available bets include Small (under 11), Big (over 10), Odd, Even, Numbers (bet on any specific number from 1 to 6), Specific Triple, Any Triple, Specific Total, Specific Double, Pair, All Odd, All Even, 2 Odd 1 Even, 3 Single, 4 Number and Specific Double and Single.
Live Sic Bo Shanghai by SA Gaming is an easy-to-learn sic bo option with lovely native dealers and lots of handy tools. The game is packed with statistics and relies on straightforward gameplay without distractions. The dice roll lasts a few seconds, while the betting time lasts a lot longer, so you should always think twice before you place a wager, as you have enough time to do it.
