Evolution's Software launches Fan Tan with live dealerEvolution, the world’s leading live casino game company, has released a live dealer version of Fan Tan.

The popular Asian bead game went live in September and invites live casino players into a luxurious Asian-themed studio for an exotic gaming experience.

This is one of several Asian-themed live dealer games by Evolution. Others include live casino Sic Bo and Dragon Tiger.

How Does Live Dealer Fan Tan Work?

As with all Fan Tan games, Evolution’s live dealer version uses a playing mat (Tan Ching), a pile of white ceramic beads, a glass dome, a metal selection cup (Tan Koi), and a bead selection stick (Tan Pong).

All of these game elements exist in Evolution’s purpose-built live Asian-themed studio.

When the game begins, the live dealer uses the metal cup to select a number of beads from the glass dome. The Tan Pong (stick) is then used to separate the beads into various groups of four until one line of beads remains. Depending on how the game goes, the final line could have between one and four beads in it.

What do players bet on? The simplest wager is to bet on how many remaining beads there will be when the dealer finishes. Evolution’s version allows for more complicated bets, too.

The game comes with two views, one allowing you to make the simplest bets, and the other opening up the more complex wagers.

In the basic mode, players may bet on how many beads will be left (1-4), and whether they’ll be high/low or odd/even. Straight wagers on the number of beads pay out 2.85:1 and big/small or odd/even bets pay 0.95:1.

Evolution’s Move Into the Asia-Pacific Market Continues

As well as expanding aggressively into the legal USA gaming market, Fan Tan is an excellent example of Evolution’s expansion into Asia-Pacific.

This is due to the large number of players in Hong Kong, Macau, and other Asian countries like Thailand who create a strong demand for high-quality live casino games.

Evolution’s march to live gaming domination continues across the globe. Fan Tan adds an excellent new Asian-themed game into the mix.

However, you don’t have to be based in Asia to play. UK players can enjoy Evolution’s suite of live games at Mr Green or 32Red. Both live casinos got top-rated status from our review team.
