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.
Ask yourself are you capable of sustaining a loss? Is it the right time to place a Super 4 bet? Should I pursue the progressive jackpot by placing a Super 4 wager over and over again? Base your answers on the bet requirements, and the casino´s pay table.
Now, side bets like Super 4 are rather tempting. They really are a fun detour from the regular game. But if you get far away from your initial bankroll management plan, then it would be best to leave the game and try out this memorable and rare variant of 21 on another occasion. If you find it exciting enough and are good in managing your bankroll, Super 4 blackjack can easily become your favorite.
