How to Play:
In Super 21, each player at the table makes their initial bet (ante) and receives two cards from the dealer at the beginning of each hand. The dealer is also dealt two cards, one face up the other face down. To win a hand, the player's hand must be valued greater than the dealers at the end of the game. Your goal is to get as close to 21 as possible without going over. While playing a hand you have the option to hit or stand, double or split during your turn, as long as the value of your hand has not exceeded 21. Once the value of your hand exceeds 21, you lose. This is called a bust. If your hand and the dealer's are of equal values once all players have either won their hand, stood, or busted, this is called a push. In the event of a push, the player's bet will be void and his/her money will be returned.
Game Controls:Once you enter the Super 21 game from The Virtual Casino lobby, you will see the empty table in front of you along with 5 casino chips laid out on the table's border. The values are $1, $5, $25, $100, and $500. Depending on the size of your playable bankroll, you will be able to select the amount you would like to bet on each hand by clicking on those chips. If you would like to bet $55 on your next hand, you would simply click the $25 chip twice, and then click the $5 chip once to bring the total chip count placed in the betting (ante) box to $55. To remove chips from your bet, simply click on the chips already placed in the betting box and they will be removed and placed back in your bankroll.
(NOTE: you can only remove chips from your bankroll before you have dealt the hand. Once the deal starts, all bets are final.)
There are 5 circular control buttons below the table that are labeled Split, Double, Stand, Hit, and Deal. Below is a brief description of what will happen when you use, and when to use, each of these buttons.
Split: Use the split option any time when the values of your first two cards dealt are the same. Once you split, each of your two matching cards will be separated and the dealer will deal two more cards to you, one on top of each of the other matching cards. Your bet will be doubled and you will now have two playable hands in front of you. You can then play each hand as a normal Blackjack hand, hitting and standing, unless the cards split were Aces. In that case, you will only be allowed one hit before the game will automatically move on. You are able to play up to three hands at a time.
Double: You can use the double option once per hand in Super 21, and only immediately after the deal. When you choose the double option, the amount of your ante will automatically be doubled and you will be given one more card. The game will move on without allowing you any other options once this card is dealt.
Stand: To stand, or stay, is to start the game with the hand you are holding. Once you stand on a hand, you will not be allowed any other options and your hand will remain in play as is, waiting for the final results of the table for that game.
Hit: When you hit you are asking for another card to be dealt to you.
Deal: The button is used to initiate each game of Super 21. Once pressed, the game has started and all bets are on.
Insurance: Insurance is an additional bet that the dealer has Blackjack. You have the option to purchase insurance when the dealer's face-up card is an Ace. Insurance costs half the amount of your original bet and pays 2:1 if the dealer has Blackjack. The insurance will be collected by the house if the dealer does not have Blackjack.
Surrender: You can surrender at any time and get half of your current bet. You can also surrender for each hand after a split.
Rules Tab: The rules button is displayed on the left-hand side of the table. This tab gives you the general rules of the game.
Cashier Button: By pressing the cashier button you will be able to make deposits, redeem bonus coupons, request withdrawals and view your account history.
Menu Button: The menu button allows you to adjust your preferences for the game in regards to view, sound and card speed, and also allow you to view your account history directly from the game screen.
Help: The help button will take you to the RTG Super 21 page where you will be able to find the basic rules of the game along with Payouts and Point Values.
Back: The back button will send you back to the casino lobby and allow you to choose another game to play.
Blackjack Tip 1: The dealer will always stand on a hand of 17 or better and hit on a hand of 16 or lower, while never making any additional bets like doubling, splitting, or insurance. By following these same rules, you are keeping the edge to a minimum and increasing your chances of making it big time.
Blackjack Tip 2: Don't split 10's in Blackjack. While the idea of getting two hands of 20 may be very tempting, the risk of losing it all is greater.
Blackjack Tip 3: Double down with a Blackjack hand of 10 when dealer is showing a 9 or lower and always double down with a hand of 11, no matter what card the dealer is showing. This bet is your main advantage in the game and, if used carefully, is the key bet that will get you walking with loads of cash.
