How to Play Super 21
The object of the Super 21 Blackjack casino table game is to come as close to 21 without overshooting the target, while having a higher total point value than the Dealer.
After placing your bet, you are dealt two cards face up. The Dealer is also dealt two cards, one up, one down. After reviewing your hand, click Hit to add cards to increase the point value. If you are satisfied with your hand, click Stand. If you think one more card will bring you to victory, you can Double your bet. You are dealt one more card to make your hand and end your round of play. Split the initial draw, if you like, if you get two cards of matching rank. This doubles your bets and you play each set as a separate hand. Surrender forfeits your cards and half your bets and the game is over.
After you play your cards, the Dealer turns over their other card. Depending on the hand, they will either hit or stand based on a series of rules that the Dealer must follow.
When the Dealer's hand matches yours in points, it is a tie, also called a Push, and your bet is returned.
You Win When
If your hand's total points are closer to 21 than the Dealer without going over, you win. You also win if the Dealer goes bust and you hand is below a 21. If the total points in your hand overshoot 21, you lose your bet.

Strategy & Tips
The major difference between standard Blackjack is the payouts on Bonus hands, so hitting and standing strategies may be slightly different:
Let's say you have a hand with a value of 15 points, and the dealer is showing a Four. The standard strategy would be to stand: There is a good chance that the Dealer has 14 and will probably go bust, so typically, you wouldn't take a chance on busting yourself.
But in Super 21 Blackjack strategy, it is recommended that if you have a five-card hand with a total value of 15 points and the Dealer is showing a Four, you may want to Hit. If you draw an Ace, 2, 3, 4, or 5, your six-card hand instantly wins, regardless of what the Dealer may have. If you draw a Six on the same 15-point hand, your six-card 21 wins a nice 2:1 bonus jackpot immediately.
Blackjack originally got its name from an early betting scheme that paid out 10 to 1 if the player's first two cards were an Ace of Spades and a Jack of Spades. Super 21 is a variation of regular Blackjack that offers bonuses for larger hands (five- or six-card), and for Blackjacks made from the Ace of Diamonds and the Jack of Diamonds.
Super 21 Blackjack is much more entertaining when you are familiar with all of the terms used in the game. Below are common terms that you will come across while playing Super 21 Blackjack.
Blackjack: A natural 21 using an Ace and a card valued at 10 points.
Bust: When the total points in your hand exceed 21. You "go bust" and lose your bet.
Double: Double, or Doubling Down doubles your original bet and deals out only one additional card and finishes your round of play.
Face Cards: A Jack, Queen or King -- all have the face value of 10 points.
Hard Hand: A hand in which an Ace is counted as 1 point instead of 11 because if counted at 11 points, the hand would exceed 21 points.
Hit: Requesting another card to be added to your hand.
Insurance: A bet that is placed when the Dealer's up card is showing an Ace. Bet half of your original bet that the Dealer will get a natural Blackjack. If the Dealer it, you win double your insurance bet.
Push: The end result when your hand and the Dealer's hand have the same points. Your bet is returned.
Soft Hand: A hand in which an Ace can still be counted as either an 11 or 1. After adding cards, the total would exceed 21 points, the hand is then considered "Hard" and can the Ace can only be counted as one point.
Split Hands: You can play your initial deal as two separate hands, if the first two cards are of equal rank.
