Place your money on the table. Never hand it to the dealer. The dealer will exchange your money for value chips and you may place your bet in the betting spot indicated on the table before the first card is dealt. Initial bets cannot be made, changed or withdrawn after that point.
You must respect the minimum and maximum limits indicated at the table when placing your bets.
The betting options available at Sic Bo are formed by the various combinations obtained with three dice. These wagers and their payouts are reproduced on the gaming table
Using value chips purchased from the dealer, players place their bets on the table in the space(s) corresponding to their wager(s).
After all bets have been made, the dealer activates the dice shaker. The outcome of each of the three dice appears on the display. At the same time, the spaces corresponding to the winning combinations light up* on the table. The dealer then removes all losing bets from the table and proceeds to pay all winners.

*The spaces light up by way of indication only; should there be a discrepancy between the lit spaces and the real outcome of the three dice, the real outcome takes precedence.

A wager wins if, after the three dice are shaken, their outcome corresponds to the player’s bet.
