Other Table Games

Try some of our other popular casino games that offer a twist on traditional table games.

Sic Bo

 

Sic Bo is a table game where players bet on the results of 3 dice.  There are a variety of bets such as small, large, total of 3 dice, any single number appearing, 2 numbers appearing and triples.  There is no shortage in bets available. Each bet has a different payout based on probability.

See Guest Services at Hard Rock Casino VancouverEdgewater Casino and River Rock Casino in Richmond for game rules and payout information. 

Odds of Winning

Sic Bo is a chance-based casino game. Games of chance are based on the concepts of randomness. You cannot influence whether you will win or lose, so all players have an equal chance of winning. It doesn't matter if you just lost three times in a row, or 40. The odds of winning never change. The only thing you can control is how much you bet, how often you play and for how long. That's why many players set a limit beforehand — it's the best way to keep chance-based games fun.
