If you want a change from the regular Vegas Strip or European Blackjack online variants, you could try Super Fun 21. It is available at all Microgaming powered online casinos like Royal Vegas, All Slots and 32Red. Super Fun 21 is a Gold Series game so you can be assured of an elegant online casino setting and features like strategy card and auto play. The strategy card is particularly important because it ensures that you will make the correct moves all the time.

Some of the rules in Super Fun 21 are the same as those in the standard American online blackjack games. The dealer is dealt a second card face down and the peeks to check for blackjack on ten value cards and aces. Dealer has to hit on a soft 17. The player can split up to three times to make four hands and can double down after a split.

But there are material differences as well. Blackjack wins pay only even money instead of the usual 3 to 2. There is nothing to be alarmed at this. Several other advantages are available to the player to offset this. The net effect is that the average return is only marginally less than 99%. Microgaming Super Fun 1 is played with one standard deck. Expert online blackjack players know that the average return to the player increases as the number of decks decreases. You can double on any number of cards, instead of only the dealt hand as in the regular blackjack game. You may take late surrender after any number of cards has been dealt. Double down rescue option is available. Player blackjack beats dealer blackjack.

Super Fun 21 also offers bonus payouts for specific outcomes. You do not have to place any side bet for this. But these bonuses will be paid only if no double down is used. A hand of six or more cards totalling 20 or less automatically wins. Five or more cards totalling 21 points pay 2 to 1 instantly. A player blackjack in diamonds pays 2 to 1.

There are some rule changes that offer additional facilities, but discerning online blackjack players know that these do not provide any advantage. You can re-split aces up to four hands instead of once. But this is unlikely to happen in a single deck game. You can split unlike ten value cards like queen and king. Optimum blackjack strategy says that ten pair must never be split, so this option is redundant.
