The history of TAI XIU
Tai Xiu, meaning “big [or] small”, is one game that goes by many names—Sicbo, Tai Sai, Big and Small,, Hi-lo.
Its exact origins in China are unknown, although many sources claim that it has been played for thousands of years, possibly even before paper was invented. Despite its popularity, this game hasn’t spread around the world until the Chinese emigration—which made Tai Xiu notably popular in the US in early 1900s. Since then, it has become a staple casino game in American casinos.
The UK also legalized the playing of Tai Xiu in its casinos by 2002. It has been adapted to Western variants namely Grand Hazard and Chuck-A-Luck—both in English origin.
