Sic Bo is one of those games that has been around for a long time. Most likely it has been around for thousands of years. It might even be the oldest casino game still widely played.
The game gained popularity in the west during the early 20th century when it was introduced to the United States by Chinese immigrants.
It is now played widely at casinos all over the world. And particularly popular in Macau, the world’s newest gambling Mecca.
Sic Bo is the “English” name of the game, meaning precious dice. In China it is commonly known as dai siu or tai sai, meaning hi-lo.
