Virtual Darts Tips & Betting Guide

What is Virtual Darts Betting?

Virtual Darts Betting combines the latest in 3D visualisation with an extensive betting offering.

Also known as Rush Darts, Virtual Darts is virtually identical to watching a real leg of darts live on TV, with the presentation giving it a similar feel to watching Premier League Darts live on a Thursday night. In fact, some Virtual Darts betting tournaments feature former and senior professional players!

You can bet on a number of Virtual Darts markets, including the Match Winner, 180 in a match, a nine-dart finish and various checkout markets.

How Does Virtual Darts Work?

As already mentioned, Virtual Darts looks very similar to live darts. The game includes the split screen that allows you to see both the player throwing his darts and them landing on the board.

Each Virtual Darts match takes place over one single leg and lasts for around five minutes.
