Super Fun 21 - Strategy Chart and Odds
Last Update: Dec 29, 2007
Super Fun 21 is a blackjack variation found at lots of casinos in Las Vegas. There are lots of liberal rules offset by most blackjacks paying only even money.
Blackjack rules are followed with these specifics and changes:
Single Deck Strategy
Double Deck Strategy
Double Down Surrender Strategy: The player should surrender after doubling down with either (1) 12 to 16 and the dealer has an 8 to ace, or (2) 17 and the dealer has an ace.
The following house edge figures are random simulation based, assuming a cut card and using the basic strategies above.
I have had two unconfirmed reports of a side bet in Super Fun 21, found in the casinos of San Diego county. The bet pays 300 to 1 on a suited blackjack in diamonds. It is only available on the first hand after a shuffle.
In a single-deck game the probability of winning is 0.3%, and the house edge is 9.2%.
