In this article, we will explain the following. You may click on any of the links below to bring you to that point in the article.

 

This article assumes you know the basics of how to play Blackjack, check out our separate article if you are unsure.

Super Fun 21 Rules

The main differences between Super Fun 21 and standard Blackjack are:

• A Blackjack pays out 1 to 1 instead of 3 to 2 unless both cards are Diamonds

• A Blackjack in Diamonds pays out 2 to 1

• A player always wins if they have Blackjack, even if the Dealer has one as well

• You can Double at any time as opposed to only after your first 2 cards

• You can Surrender at any time as opposed to only after your first 2 cards

• You can Surrender after Doubling

• If you have a hand with 6 cards and a total of 20 or less, you automatically win the hand

• If you have a hand totaling 21 after 6 cards, you win the hand at 2 to 1

Although casinos have different variations, the most common we have found have the following set up:

• Super Fun 21 is played with 1 deck

• The Dealer Hits on soft 17

• The Dealer peaks for Blackjack if they have an Ace or 10

• You can Double after a Split

• You can Split a hand up to 4 times

• You can Split Aces again after Splitting

• You can Surrender after Splitting

Super Fun 21 example table

As you can see from the above screenshot, a Super Fun 21 table looks just like a standard game of Blackjack, the only difference are the extra rules in place, most of which give the Player an advantage.

Some versions of Super Fun 21 are played with 2 or 6 decks, the majority of online games though, including those provided by top software providers Microgaming, are played with just the 1 deck.

The below table shows what you should do in versions that use 1 deck of cards.

Tips

Make the most of your extra options – Unlike other forms of Blackjack, Super Fun 21 lets you Surrender at any time, Double at any time and win with a hand of 6 cards. Remember these extra options when you are playing as they give you an extra advantage.

Play for fun to learn the extra options – Most online sites that offer Super Fun 21 allow you to play for free chips before using your own money. Even if you are an experienced Blackjack player, we would recommend playing for fun at first as the extra options make it considerably different from standard Blackjack.

Manage your bankroll – Like any casino game, bankroll is important so before you start a session make sure you have at least 40 hands in your bankroll and choose your bet accordingly. Sticking to it will ensure the best possible chance of winning and enjoying your session.
