    Evolution launched Fan Tan

    Evolution have launched a new game and I'm delighted to report that it's not a game show!

    FanTan is a traditional Chinese table game. Something you don't see often on the floor if a Western casino.

    No cards. Just beads.

    I'll get a full write up in the blog soon, but the quick and dirty goes something like this...

    A random number of beads are carved out of a pile of beads...

    The number of selected beads will determine the game outcome

    Four bead sets are then divided out from the selected pile...

    Until only 1, 2, 3, or 4 beads remain. This is the outcome you are betting on...

    Of course before all this happens, you get to bet on whether it will be a 1, 2, 3, or 4 bead outcome...
