Default Super Fun 21

I'm considering adding this game to my playing options. I'm aware it requires a large spread and was wondering from those who do play it, what the heat is like considering its a carnival game? I assume the casinos now simply look for a big spread even on this game? I've noticed many casinos also switching to double deck from single which probably makes it unplayable.

Default super fun 21

I played it in vegas a few years back for laughs. I agree that a big spread is needed to beat it but I don't have the hard core figuires. It is suppose to be a beatable game even with two decks but don't take my word for it. When I played it I asked the pit boss how it's played and he really touted the game up. I think he got wise to me after a little while when I was making a little too much money to be a dummy. I may have been a dummy for even playing the game! blackchipjim

It's single deck, so you probably don't have a "point of entree". No mid-deck entry is pretty common.

Attacking a Single Deck Game with a Level One Count is a mistake to begin with;
but compounding that mistake by using an unbalanced count with very
very few basic strategy departure indices makes matters worse for you.

A 20:1 spread can make up for a lot of technical inelegance.

Blackjacks pay even money, so zen is actually a very good count (-1 for A -2 for Ten).

Default Preferred Counts for this game are ...


As Blackjacks have just a 20% bonus in a 6 to 5 game The best counts will
certainly be Level Two counts without Reckoned or Side-Counted Aces.

Hi-Opt II and Advanced Omega II are very clearly the preferred counts to employ.
This is a tough game and using a Level One count is an egregious error that will prove costly.
