It’s a game that has burst out of the working men’s clubs and become a multi million pound sport with tournaments right across the calendar year. With extensive TV coverage and betting company sponsorship, darts is now popular with the whole sporting community and there is some decent value to be found amongst the new crop of enhanced odds offers.
The majority of enhanced odds darts promotions come ahead of the biggest tournament of all – the PDC World Championships which is concluded at the very start of the year. 2017 was a very good example of this with two very different deals available on the same player.
Eventual champion Michael Van Gerwen started as the odds on favourite to claim his second title but new customers to 888sport and Coral could take advantage of excellent price boosts. 888 had lifted that figure to 7/1 while Coral had offered MVG at an incredible 33/1.
The main difference in regard to terms came in the amount that players could stake. Customers at 888sport could put down between £5 and £10 while Coral capped the deal at £1.00 but both provided great value on the eventual winner.
So, the PDC World Championship is a great time to look for deals but there are top darts tournaments throughout the year including the Premier League, the Masters and also the BDO version of the worlds.
A typical deal will be similar to that which we have showcased above: A bookmaker will take one player ahead of the tournament and boost his price with a limit on how much you can stake. Other terms will apply but expect any profit at the book price to be paid straight into your account while returns at the higher figure will be paid as a free bet.
As with all promotions, be sure to check all ts and cs before you proceed.
There are plenty of enhanced darts offers once you are on board with a bookmaker although they tend to work differently to the Van Gerwen outright listed above. These turn around quite rapidly and will look to pick a number of games from a top tournament such as the PDC Worlds.
On a busy day at the start of event, you may get a boosted price on three players to win with a smaller price lift by their names. So, Van Gerwen, Phil Taylor and James Wade all to win may increase from around 2/1 to around 4/1.
The figures involved here may be a lot smaller than those new customer deals but the good news is that you get to keep all of the profits, subject to the bookies’ individual terms. Generally speaking, there are no free bet tokens to worry about and often there is no maximum stake either so the value is still here.
We’ve seen that Coral and 888sport were quick to get involved when the 2017 World Championship came around and they are definitely two bookmakers to watch for when it comes to new customer offers.
Paddy Power and ComeOn may also get listing for new players so watch out for them too. Winner Sports are keen on quoting enhanced Multiples for existing customers and you may also see these from the likes of BetBright, Ladbrokes and Fun88.
Keep a look out yourselves but also keep reading the news updates here as we look to bring you the latest promotions from the world of darts. It’s a thrilling sport that has been really embraced by the betting community and some of these enhanced odds offers can provide some seriously good value.
