The PDC World Darts Championship is back to give us two and a half weeks of great entertainment right through the festive season. It’s always a dramatic event but the 2018 renewal has some added poignancy with the impending retirement of the sport’s most successful player.
Phil The Power Taylor steps up to the professional oche for the final time in a bid to add to his long list of world titles. The man from Stoke isn’t the favourite this year but he has continued to win top tournaments in 2017 and anyone looking to back him should seriously consider this new customer price boost offer from 888Sport.
The majority of bookies have Taylor at 12/1 to win the 2018 World Championship while the best price we could find from across the sportsbooks was the 14/1 listed by SkyBet and Boylesports. In comparison, favourite Michael Van Gerwen is on offer at best odds of 8/11 with William Hill and Sun Bets while the 2015 and 2016 Champion Gary Anderson is on offer at a top price of 7/1 with SkyBet and 188Bet.
It’s therefore something of a punt to get behind The Power but that is reflected by those huge odds so, here’s what you need to do next.
As mentioned, this is an offer for new customers to 888Sport so if you don’t already hold an account here you can head across and sign up. Registration is a quick, safe and simple process and within 2 minutes or so it will be time to make a deposit.
When depositing, be sure to enter the Promo Code 888ODDS and fund at least £10.00 via a debit or credit card into that new account. Your money should be available straight away and then it’s time to place the bet.
Betting and Payments
With funds at the ready stake the fixed amount of £5.00 on Phil Taylor to win the PDC World Darts Championship of 2018. Watch all the action from Alexandra Palace and if your bet is successful you will be paid in two phases as follows.
Initial profits will be at 888’s published book price and these are returned as cash. You can withdraw or play through while the remainder, up to that enhanced figure of 80/1, will hit your account as free bet tokens. These tokens will arrive within 72 hours and you then have 7 days in which to use them before they expire.
Those are the main aspects of this new customer offer but you can check all terms and conditions on 888’s promo page to make sure you are happy before going ahead.
Phil Taylor’s record in world darts may never be beaten and while he may be fourth favourite this year, he has beaten Van Gerwen in 2017 and with a passionate crowd behind him he can never be ruled out.
He’s a mid-range option for sure but odds of 80/1 are among the biggest that we’ve seen for an offer of this kind and they may just lead to some serious profits.
