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.
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.
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:
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.
