Fan Tan

Based on the repeated separation of a random number of beads into orderly lines of four, Evolution’s Fan Tan is a classic game of chance where you can choose the level you want to play at. Stick with a simple set of bets or opt for a more advanced set of Fan Tan bets that give you many more betting possibilities and chances of winning! Either way, the beautifully simple objective is the same: predict the number of beads that will remain in the final line of beads. Will it be 1, 2, 3 or 4?

Choice of two game views

Choose from the default game view, which is great for getting to know the game, or switch to the advanced game view. The default view displays the main Fan Tan bet types, while the advanced view includes even more of the traditional Fan Tan bet types.

Betting possibilities

Get started easily with the basic bet types: Fan Tan (bet on a single number: 1, 2, 3, or 4), or place an Odd or Even, Big or Small bet.

Want the full-on Fan Tan experience? Get to know the bets that Fan Tan enthusiasts just love: the Nim bet with its multiple variants, the Kwok bets and the Ssh (Sheh-sam-hong) bets. Our self-explanatory betting grids make the game incredibly easy to pick up.

The beads

Each game round starts with the dealer making a selection of a random number of beads using the metal cup.

After the betting time has expired, the dealer reveals the selected beads and starts sorting the beads into lines of four using a special stick.

When there are four or fewer beads remaining, the dealer will place these remaining beads in a line in the centre of the table, and this brings you the final result: 1, 2, 3 or 4 beads.
