Attention blackjack players: avoid Super Fun 21, also known as just Super21.
There, now that my warning is out there, I’ll share with you why it’s in your best interest—and your bankroll’s interest—to stay away from this game. And this applies to all blackjack players, online and regular casino players.
Let’s take a look at what they’re offering.
Casinos will try to lure you in to play this blackjack variation by telling you it’s a single deck game. That should have great odds. But, wait it gets better.
Super 21 rules allow you to double down on any number of cards. Great, blackjack player odds just got better. I know you just can’t believe that. But, wait, there’s more.
Yes, more. You can surrender after doubling down if you like. I know, the odds just keep getting better and better.
Have you ever heard that phrase, ‘If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is?’
Guess what? That applies to Super Fun 21, or Super 21 if you’d rather call it that.
Traditional blackjack, online or not, pays out 3-2 for a natural blackjack. In Super Fun 21, the payout for a natural blackjack is even money. Yes, even money. There is one natural blackjack that pays more but it must be made up of diamonds. All other natural blackjacks receive even money.
This even money payout not only wipes out the advantages from this variation’s player-favorable rules, it actually increases the house edge…an 85% increase actually. That translates in a raise of 0.95% on top of their 2% to 5%.
Does sound like much fun anymore does it, blackjack players?
No, I didn’t think so. Super Fun 21, masquerading as Super 21 at times, should be avoided by all blackjack players, online and in casinos, for its even money payouts and increased house edge.
