Blackjack games for fun
Super Fun 21 is a variation of blackjack played in live and online casinos around the world. The game provides a variety of advantages for player, while offsetting these perks with one big disadvantage. Super Fun 21 was created in 1999 by Las Vegas gaming consultant Howard F. Grossman, and has gained in popularity in the 15 years since. Tech Art Management Incorporated holds the patent on SuperFun 21.
If you’re dealt a two-card 21 or blackjack in this game and both the cards are diamonds, the payout is a real nice 2:1. So if you receive a 10 of diamonds and an ace of diamonds on the deal, you’ll receive a payout of 2 to 1. All other natural blackjacks pay at the rate of 1:1, which I’ll discuss in greater detail later. Rules determining how blackjacks pay are pivotal to Super Fun 21’s game mechanics and payout structure.
Also, if you receive a blackjack on the deal and the dealer also holds a blackjack, you win. Your blackjack supersedes the hand the house holds, which one again gives a thrill. In the standard game, the two hands would create a push, which can be a real buzzkill when you’ve just hit a two-card 21.
Six Card Hand
If you receive six cards in your hand which equal 20, you win automatically, as if you have a natural blackjack. While the 6-card hand which doesn’t bust (or equal 21) is rare, this represents an exciting moment in any game of Super Fun 21, so its inclusion is integral to the game. It should be noted that you’ll win holding a 20 even if the dealer holds a 21.
Five Card 21-Hand
When you receive a 5-card hand or more worth 21, this is an automatic win, as well. Note that the hand has to equal twenty-one exactly. Also note that the stipulation is “or more”, so if you receive a 6-card hand worth 21, it wins, just as it would if you were holding a 6-card hand worth twenty.
Players are allowed to split hands up to four times. Most casinos limit splitting to once or twice, allowing the creation of only 3 or 4 hands. Super Fun Twenty-One allows up to 5 hands, which gives the chance to seize a major advantage in the right situation. Once again, this is a rare occurrence in blackjack, when you would continue to receive the same card four times in a row, but it offers another exciting chance to win five times what you normally would on a hand.
