Super 4 Blackjack Rules

If you happen to find yourself in a brick and mortar casino that offers a Super 4 version of blackjack and you want to put your luck to the test, don´t give up just because you have never played it before. The rules of blackjack remain the same. The only thing different is you placing a Super 4 bet alongside your regular wager before the cards are dealt, and there´s the addition of meeting particular requirements to either win or lose the Super 4. Here´s how the session plays out usually:

  • An assortment of two cards is dealt to both the dealer and the player
  • Players who have placed the Super 4 wager depend on the dealer´s hand
  • The win situation works in two ways
  • Dealer’s ´up card´ is an Ace – Super 4 wins
  • Dealer´s hand forms a blackjack – Super 4 wins
  • Hands are paid according to the announced pay table

Tips and Strategies

In the gambling world you can never be sure if you’ve found the perfect strategy to match your ambitions, or even if the strategy will work at all. Mainly because gambling involves games of chance and there isn’t much you can do about it. However, blackjack is the only table game that requires some skill.

You can get into basic blackjack strategies and studying the game’s many variations, but the point of it all is learning to play smart when it comes to placing a bet. Same advice applies to side bets, and Super 4 too.

I'm posting to 'Other Games' because there is no clear-cut domain for blackjack side bets.
Mohegan Sun has announced they will be 'the ONLY location [of six casinos] in New England' offering Super 4 Progressive Blackjack starting in March. The highly doubtful claim is made 'When the dealer gets Blackjack, everyone at the table wins!' The progressive pot starts at $50K. A 4-card poker hand formed with your cards and the dealer's determines the payout. It will be available 'at most Blackjack tables.' I can't locate information about this specific side bet. Does anyone out there have information, such as a pay table? Rules? House edge? I'll pass on Mohegan Sun's advice to 'ask your friendly Dealer' for offical rules. Yeah. Right.

Information on this game has not been forthcoming and what little that has should not be considered 100% reliable. Here's what's out there as of today.
Most dealers have finished their training.
The side bet is $5 and $5 only. It is not mandatory.
All tables will have this side bet. The circle will be to the left of the blackjack bet as Match The Dealer will be retained in it's usual place.
Nothing can happen unless the dealer has a blackjack. Only then will there be payouts mostly based on poker hands. There's even a payout for cards of the same color, not suits just red or black.
That's it so far and it's subject to change. Can't wait to watch players root for the dealer to get a blackjack. :-(

Thanks, 1BB! I find it odd that I can't locate any Internet-based information about this side bet. Nothing on the casino web site. I would expect the side bet is being shopped around for casinos in general and thus would have some commercial information posted.
Sounds like Mohegan Sun is 'all in' on this side bet if they are going to put new felt on every blackjack table. Perhaps that is driven by the progressive jackpot element. If every table is being changed I'm wary of some other undesirable change piggy-backing on the activity, like a change to H17. I'm surprised to hear 'every table' since the pit at the Bow & Arrow bar hasn't had any side bets yet. (That pit seems to be run by a crew separate from the rest of the casino.)
Hmmm.. maybe the Pocono and Resorts tables will be part of the jackpot.

Good information, Thanks! With them going all in on it, I'm sure it is a nice HA for them.

FWIW, I'm finding that nearly all sidebets have an independent HA from the main game (including ALL that are optional that I've seen), and so one should be the same and not affect how they deal the game. If they're seeding with 50K and only running it one place, it makes sense to me that they're offering it on all tables; they need a large player base to pay a top hand that high and up. Also inferring from your saying there's not a lot of info, that they may have developed it in house and it's not being marketed/distributed elsewhere. I'll be interested to hear what-all it's about; thanks for the heads'-up!
Edit: It does seem interesting that they're putting it on all BJ; are they all the same number of decks at their tables? Maybe they'll field different pay tables to compensate.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

There are over 100 blackjack tables at the Connecticut Mohegan Sun. They are all 6 deck S17 with the exception of five H17 tables, still 6 deck, that are $5 minimums that never increase. It will be interesting especially in light of the fact that, in my opinion, they blew it with Free Bet.

Tables are being outfitted as I post. One pit in the Sky Casino has been completed and will open around noon. Work in the Winter Casino is almost complete. The felts are the same but are being replaced to accommodate the electrical work. The tables have to be stripped because of the sensors. Each betting circle has a round, red plastic sensor in the 12 o'clock position directly above it where the $5 chip is to be placed. Each table has an electronic sign displaying the progressive bonus and even has the pit number and table number on it. There is a device in the center portion of the tray that has a start button for the dealer to press and also shows the six seat positions. We've seen these on other games.
This bet is $5 only. To play simply place a $5 chip on the sensor. Nothing happens unless the dealer gets a blackjack. When that occurs, players combine their two cards with the dealer's blackjack to make a four card hand. These are the payouts.
Royal Flush (Diamonds) 100% of progressive
Royal Flush 10% of progressive
(Spades, Hearts & Clubs)
Trips $750
Straight $500
Flush $400
Two Pair $300
Same Color $100
Pair $75
Any Hand $25
The progressive, before any play this morning, was at $60,479.16. I don't know if that is a true number or if it will be reset to $50,000.
Original wagers are not returned.
I'm told that every table will have this game, including the $500 minimum pit in the Sky Casino.

SuperSo a 5 for 1 payment instantly when the dealer has a blackjack.
15 for 1 if you have any ace or matching face card or a dealt pair.
20 for 1 for all four cards the same color, I presume?
60 for 1 for matching blackjacks (AQ v AQ)
80 for 1 for all four cards the same suit
100 for 1 for a 20 that completes the AKQJ, 10s can't fit.
150 for 1 for AA or a paired 20 that matches the dealer's face.
10% for the suited 20 that completes the suited AKQJ
100% if it's diamonds.
Not a bad looking game from the casino's standpoint. Looks like it'll be fun for the recreational player because the sting of a dealer blackjack is alleviated (even players who are betting $25 will be happy because WOW LOOK A BONUS). The hands seem simple to read and pay quickly. I'm sure the house edge must be enormous, since the hit frequency is only 4.83%. Any word on whether all payouts are paid out of the progressive jackpot or just the top two?
This might be countable though since a lot of emphasis seems to be placed on face cards.

I wonder if any other casinos have it or will pick it up, perhaps as a $1 bet.

The same Color payout is being evil to my poor spreadsheet. I'll try and finish it tomorrow Wednesday.
