Sic Bo Summon the Dragon



Invention Summary

A Method and apparatus that allows side bets for dice games with a particular emphasis on Sic Bo. This method is comprised of a processor, gaming logic, a video display and player input system. Two distinct sets of three dice in each set are used, the processor accepts the initial wage based on standard dice (set 1) random outcomes. The processor accepts a secondary wage on a contemporaneous event but for a separate set of dice (set 2). The processor than displays the outcomes for the first set of dice and the second set of dice which can be composed of special/unique symbols. The various combination of numbers and unique symbols are compared to the pre-determined paytables in order to determine outcomes and rewards to the players and side betters.
