Super Blackjack Battle II Turbo Edition is a retro card game battle simulator. It is very much in the vein of Street Fighter but instead of throwing punches you're throwing down cards. A basic understanding of blackjack is needed to play this game and below there is a tips/strategies section in the event that you're new to this card game.
Step 1: Tournament (story mode) with all 10 Characters
Each single player mode playthrough consists of 11 matches. 10 matches against the other players and then once match against the boss, Tony. Each match spans a total of 10 potential rounds. You could win in the first round or it could take all 10 rounds.
In each round you're simply needing to beat the dealer. Don't get confused and think you need to beat the other player. The dealer is who you're looking to beat in each round. Your goal is get a higher card set than them. In most of the matches the other player will bet really high and lose to the dealer and seal their own fate. As you get further into the mode (ie the 6-11th players you're against) will begin to play a bit smarter and you'll need to watch their score against yours. In the earlier players (1-5) there's a high chance they go all-in in the first round and then lose, giving you an instant/easy win.
For the most part you can play it safe and best the minimum amount for the entire match however as you get further into the mode and especially against the boss, Tony you'll need to take more risks and bet a little higher to keep from being potentially beat by them.

This is step is easy and fast. Just go into the party mode on the main menu and win 10 matches with the same character. You can boost against yourself for this trophy.
Step 3: Simple Blackjack
This is step is easy and fast. Choose "Plain Blackjack" from the main menu. In this mode you'll only be playing against the dealer. Win 50 times against the dealer and this will pop.
Step 4: Clean Up/Grinding for Luck Based Trophies
In this step you'll be cleaning things up. Attempting to get the super lucked based trophies like beating all hands to Tony, beating all hands to Mark as Kamiko, getting a perfect win with a Blackjack in the first round etc etc. You'll need to see the respective trophies for details on what you need to do for each. Some of them can be attempted during the story mode and some may come naturally and without effort if you get super lucky. Essentially most of these are simply at the mercy of the cards that you're given and at what the computer A.I. decides to bet. There are some strategies for helping along the luck under these respective trophies.
- Lucky One
- Tony's Nightmare
- Kamiko's Revenge

Blackjack for Beginners
Essentially these are the goals:
- To beat the dealer with cards valued higher than him.
- 21 is the highest value.
For the sake of this guide the following terms need to be understood:
- Insurance: If the dealer's faceup card is an ace, you may take "insurance," which essentially is a bet that the dealer has a 10-value card down to complete a blackjack. Insurance, which may be taken for half the original bet, pays 2-1 if the dealer has blackjack. The net effect is that if you win the insurance bet and lose the hand, you come out even. For example, the player has 18 with a $10 bet down. The dealer has an ace up. The player takes a $5 insurance bet. If the dealer has blackjack, the player loses the $10 bet on the hand but wins $10 with the 2-1 payoff on the $5 insurance bet.
- Double Down: You may elect to double your original bet and receive only one more card regardless of its denomination. Some casinos restrict doubling down to hands in which your first two cards total 10 or 11. Others allow you to double on any two cards. Double down by taking a chip or chips equal to the amount of your original bet and placing them next to your bet. In a facedown game, at this point you also need to turn your original two cards faceup.
- Hit: If you hit, you take another card or cards in hopes of getting closer to 21. If the player's total exceeds 21 after hitting, the player is said to "bust" and loses the bet. In shoe games, the player signals a hit by pointing to his cards or scratching or waving toward himself. In facedown games, the player signals a hit by scratching the table with the cards. Verbal calls to hit are not accepted -- signals are used for the benefit of the security cameras above the table, so a taped record is on hand to settle any potential disputes.
- Stand: Stand: If you stand, you elect to draw no more cards in hopes that the current total will beat the dealer. Signal a stand by holding a flattened palm over your cards in a faceup game or by sliding your cards under your bet in a facedown game.
- Split: If your first two cards are of the same denomination, you may elect to make a second bet equal to your first and split the pair, using each card as the first card in a separate hand. For example, if you are dealt two 8s, you may slide a second bet equal to the first to your betting box. The dealer will separate the 8s, then put a second card on the first 8. You play that hand out in normal fashion until you either stand or bust; then the dealer puts a second card on the second 8, and you play that hand out.
- Bust: You will bust if the continue drawing cards and the total goes over 21. It results in an immediate loss.
- All-in: To bet all of your available money on the next hand.
