History of darts betting
Punters who like to bet on darts were able to do so in bookmakers across the country during the 1970s and 1980s. This was the heyday of the BDO, which was the lead amateur darts league in the UK. But darts betting really took off when some players - including Phil Taylor, Eric Bristow and Jocky Wilson - broke away from the BDO to form the PDC in 1993.
After that, darts became big business as Sky Sports brought the rights to the PDC and started revolutionising the TV spectacle. Over the years, fans who watch darts on TV have been given a television masterpiece, with gripping matches, atmospheric venues, delirious crowds and great darts betting odds all adding to the spectacle.
With the growth of the PDC came further opportunities to stage darts tournaments. Now there is the PDC World Darts Championship, Premier League of Darts, the European Tour and many more premier events. The PDC is showcased all over the world, with competitions in Las Vegas, China, Australia and mainland Europe.
Betting on darts
Most darts bets focus on match wins. This is because - as a one-on-one sport - betting on darts is very straightforward. In some instances, such as the Premier League of Darts, draws are possible. This creates an interesting market where you can bet on three outcomes in the moneyline bet.
Other top darts bets include backing the winner of your chosen tournament, as well as betting on the progress of specific players. Yet darts betting really comes to life when you bet In Play! Unibet TV offers in play betting alongside every darts live stream. It means you can time your bet to perfection and boost your odds in the process. Live darts betting involves markets such as correct score, leg wins and even the next player to hit a 180.
World Darts Championship betting
Unibet offers thousands of darts odds at the World Darts Championship! Each December the competition starts and runs over Christmas, with the final usually played in the first week of the New Year. This means there is festive spirit running throughout the World Darts Championship and makes for a very special occasion every night at the Ally Pally!
Our World Darts Championship odds cover the usual markets as well as some great darts betting specials. For example, you can bet on the nationality of the winner, the final match-up, the number of 180s thrown and even if there will be a nine-dart finish! The beauty of Unibet’s darts betting specials is they change almost every day and we are constantly adding new odds to the sportsbook.
Best darts players past and present
Phil Taylor won a staggering 14 World Darts Championship titles and two BDO World Darts Championship crowns. The Englishman is widely regarded as the greatest darts player of all time — although maybe not the most eccentric! Indeed, there have been champions who have won fewer titles that nevertheless capture the imagination just as much as Taylor.
Eric Bristow won five BDO World Darts Championship titles between 1980 and 1986. He also lost five further finals. The iconic Jocky Wilson won the BDO title twice — in 1982 and 1989 — and Gary Anderson is the only other Scot to boast multiple world titles.
The modern era, meanwhile, has been dominated by Michael van Gerwen. Fans flock to watch Van Gerwen on TV and bet on the Dutchman with Unibet. As of 2019 MVG has won three PDC World Darts Championship titles, with his first victory coming in 2014. Van Gerwen has also won every other major PDC tournament available, including the World Matchplay, World Grand Prix, Premier League, Grand Slam of Darts and the Masters.
The next generation of darts players are very different from their predecessors. Few of them drink and many practice as full-time professionals even from their late teens. The professionalism of darts makes these players more like athletes and has raised the standards to even greater levels. The first nine-darter at the PDC World Darts Championship was only thrown in 2009 — a staggering 15 years after the inaugural competition. By the end of 2019 there had been eight more maximums!
