When playing the casino version of this game, the rules provided by each online casino may differ. Usually, the game is comprised of four players. A minimum of 136 tiles will be used, although often, it is 144 tiles. This set of tiles is then broken down into three categories, which are suits along with the honor tiles, and the third group is the bonus tiles.
Who is going to deal is determined by the role of a set of dice. Then the dealer will deal thirteen tiles to each of the players. Prior to this, the tiles are laid face down on the table and shuffled.
