Super Fun 21 is an entertaining take on Blackjack that features a few notable twists that give the game more of a ‘high stakes’ feel. In this single-deck version of the game, players are allowed to double down at any point as well as ‘surrender’ if the prospects for beating the dealer appear slim. Players are also handsomely rewarded if they manage to pull of the rare feat of having a six-card hand whose total is 21 or fewer.
Super Fun 21 information
Yes, the name of this take on Blackjack is a little quirky, but, odd as it may seem, it’s surprisingly accurate. The rule variations here give the player much more flexibility to toy with how much they put on the table, which gives the game more of a ‘free-flowing’ feel. This can be perceived as either a blessing or a curse, as it facilitates going on runs which can be either positive or negative. In other words, if you enjoy higher stakes, then this version of Blackjack is right up your alley.
How to play Super Fun 21
The object of Super Fun 21 is the same as in other variations of Blackjack: make a hand with the highest possible total as close as possible to 21 without going over. Each of the buttons from right to left has its own function:
- Hit - Click this to receive exactly one more card in the hand.
- Stand - Keep your hand as it is and move on to either your next hand or have the dealer take his or her turn.
- Split - If you have two of the same card in your initial hand, you may split them to create two hands. Your ante is doubled if you decide to do this.
- Double - Double your ante and receive exactly one more card (in other words, you will not have the option of hitting after doing this). Note that you may only do this once per hand.
- Surrender - You may choose to fold and forefeit half of your ante instead of having the dealer reveal his hand you risking losing your entire hand.
Note that you receive a 1:1 payout for most wins including Blackjacks, but for suited diamond Blackjacks and combinations of six cards whose sum is 21 or lower. For these you receive a 2:1 pay out.
