Players must place their chips on the table areas which depict the kind of bet they want to make. After all the bets are made, the dealer shakes three dice in a chest. Then, players will either win or lose, depending on if their predictions turned to be true or false.
The online version is no different, except that (of course), instead of a dealer, players will get their results delivered by a software Random Number Generator (RNG). Unless they're playing live Sic Bo, in which case a human dealer will do the job of rolling the dice to his remote, online audience of players.
The game logic is straightforward, being very similar to a roulette casino game; in both games, the players put their bets on the table and wait for the dealer (or the software, for online non-live versions) to deliver a pure chance result. The differences are, logically, in the physics of the game (i.e. ball and wheel vs dice) and the type of bets presented on the table, which are very different.
Even so, as in roulette, Sic Bo players can either go for conservative, low-risk and low-pay bets, or for high-rollers, with minimal chances but higher payouts. Each player will decide according to his profile, his budget or his feeling.
