Super Fun 21
Super Fun 21 is an incarnation of blackjack that uses a normal deck of 52 cards. The value of each of those cards is as follows. The value of the ace card is either eleven or one. This depends on which value is the most beneficial to the current hand of the player. The value of the king, queen, and jack sit at ten. The 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 cards, regardless of suit or colour, are taken at their face value.
To start the game, the player puts down their bet. The dealer will not deal the cards until all of the bets are down on the table. Once the bet is down, the dealer will deal two cards to him or her. Both of these cards are facing upward. The dealer then deals themselves two cards. One of these cards is facing up while the other is facing down. The player can then do one of two things. The first is they can ask for another card by saying “hit”. The second thing they can do is not take any additional cards by saying “stand”. The idea is to beat the dealer’s hand by coming closer to 21 that he or she did without actually going over a total of 21 points. If either the player or the dealer goes over 21, they “bust” and lose. If either gets a total of 21, it is called a natural or blackjack.
Different from Blackjack
While so far the game sounds a lot like blackjack, there are a couple of major differences. The first major difference is if the player manages to get six or more cards for a total of 20 points, then they will automatically win the hand.
Even if the dealer has 21 points, the player will still win the hand. This does not mean that if the player has 6 cards and goes over 21 that they will still win. The total points have to be twenty for this rule to apply. Other differences to consider are if a player gets 21 and a dealer also gets 21, then the player wins instead of the dealer.
The player can also split their hand up to a total of four times. A player can also double down at any point during the game. If the player has five or more cards that bring their total to 21, they are paid double their money. The final major difference between Super Fun 21 and blackjack is that if the player gets a blackjack, it is paid out at 5 to 6. Traditionally a blackjack would payout at 3 to 2. This is to ensure the casino still comes out on top.
Super Fun 21 Special Side Bet
There is an additional bet that players can place in Super Fun 21. This bet is that they will get a blackjack with a certain suit. This is only applicable in the first found of a deck that has been newly shuffled or is brand new. The payout for this bet is a staggering 300 to 1.
