Super Fun 21 is a blackjack variant only found at Cryptologic online casinos. Its distinguishing features are a number of liberal rules and a bonus bet. The article describes the general rules of the game and how it is played at Cryptologic online casinos like InterCasino and VIP Casino.

Super Fun 21 is played with a single standard deck of cards and this itself provides an advantage to the player. The player's rules that are important are as follows. The player may double after a split. The player may split pairs up to three hands. The player may hit and double down on split aces. The player may double on any number of cards. The player may take late surrender on any number of cards. The player may surrender half of total bet after doubling. The dealer's rule that is important is that the dealer hits a soft 17.

Because many of the normal blackjack rules have been tweaked in favor of the player, the payouts are bound to be affected. Player blackjacks in all suits except diamonds pay only even money instead of the usual 3 to 2. This is not as bad as it first seems because there are sops in the payouts as well. Player blackjack in diamonds pays 2 to 1 and all player blackjacks always win. Player hand totaling 20 or less, consisting of six cards, except after doubling, pays 1 to 1. Player hand of 21, consisting of 5 cards or more, except after doubling, pays 2 to 1. Normal player wins pay even money as usual. Ties, except for blackjack ties, push. Blackjack ties go to the player. Players can take insurance as in normal blackjack games. Insurance pays 2 to 1.

The Cryptologic Super Fun 21 bonus side bet has to be placed, if desired, at the beginning of each round of play. It is optional and need not be placed. However, if placed, it has a fixed value of 1 credit. The bonus side bet pays out when the player's first two dealt cards consist of blackjack in diamonds only. This does not include hands that are split. The payout for the bonus side bet is 300 to 1.

As usual, the game begins with the player placing the bet. Chips of denomination 1, 25, 100 and 500 are displayed at the bottom of the screen. The minimum bet is of 5 credits. Smaller bets than that are automatically adjusted to 5 credits. By clicking the Deal button the cards are dealt in the normal manner. Two cards are dealt face up to the player and one cards face up and one card face down to the dealer. Thereafter the hand is played in the normal manner. The move options that the player has at any time in the game will be displayed. For example the Split button will be displayed only when the player has a pair. This feature in Cryptologic Super Fun 21 makes things convenient for the player. The game also has a Turbo feature, which can be enabled by clicking the Turbo button. This increases the speed of the card dealing animation.

Cryptologic Super Fun 21 also has a responsible gambling feature. Players can set their table bet limit below the maximum specified limit through Bet Options from the Game Menu. To reduce the maximum table bet limit the player should enter the new limit in the appropriate box and click on the OK button to complete the update.
