Online casino games now being offered from Lock Casino as of June 10, 2011 include Sic Bo (骰寶) or hi-lo in the Philippines.  Sic Bo is played as as dai siu in Macau. 

Also known as tai sai (大細), dai siu (大小), big and small or hi-lo is from the ancient Chinese civilization comes a game where you predict what will turn up with the toss of the dice. Sic Bo offers a variety of betting options and allows you to place multiple bets at once. You can bet that specific numbers will turn up, a specific pair of numbers will be rolled, a specific three of a kind will turn up and much more. Sic Bo offers high payouts for its most rare combinations. 

The literal meaning of Sic bo (骰寶) is "precious dice", while dai siu and dai sai mean "big [or] small".
