Darts Casino Games from Playtech

Darts is a very popular pub sport in many countries. The leading online gaming software developer Playtech has released two fixed odds casino games based on darts, one of which has a progressive jackpot. These games, titled Darts and Jackpot Darts, can be accessed from the Arcade Games section of the Games menu at Playtech online casinos. The center of the screen displays the dart board, which is identical to the professional dart board in all respects. This gives players a sense of participating in a real darts competition.

The Darts game starts with the player placing the wagers. There are three types of bets allowed in Darts. The first is that any of the three darts thrown will hit a particular section of the dart board. The sections are the single, double or treble rings and the Inner or Outer Bull. A more complicated bet is the dart combination bet in the upper left part of the game window. This bet is that the darts will hit a particular combination a certain number of times, from zero to three. The combinations can be based on the colors of the different sections of the dart board or on the different rings. Each section of the dart board has a score and players can place a bet on the total score of all the darts. Different ranges have been specified and the bet will win if the actual score falls in the selected range.

The first step in placing a bet is to select the chip of the desired value from the lower right part of the game window. Then the player must click the designated area of the bet he wants to place. Holding the cursor over a particular bet area displays its odds under the Bet Odds heading. The odds can be shown in two formats, decimals and fractions, depending on the player's choice. Playtech online casinos service players from many different countries. In some countries the decimal format is preferred and in others the fractional format is preferred. Hence by giving this choice Playtech ensures that its customers feel at home. Multiple wagers can be placed. The total amount wagered is displayed in the Total Bet cell.

Once the player has placed all his wagers he should click the Bet button to start the game. A hand appears on the screen and throws three darts one after another on the dart board. All winning bets with the payouts are shown under the Result heading. If players have won any bet they have the option to gamble with the payouts in a gamble round. In this game the dart is thrown on a different dartboard and the amount staked is enhanced, reduced or lost according to the instructions on the section of the board on which the dart lands.

Jackpot Darts has a progressive jackpot that increases with each wager. In order to win the jackpot players have to wager that all three darts will hit the bull's eye and this event has to occur when the darts are thrown. In addition, the jackpot pays 20 times the bet if one dart hits the bull's eye and 2,000 times the bet if two darts hit the bull's eye. Otherwise Jackpot Darts is very similar to Darts. Both Darts and Jackpot Darts can be played at all Playtech online casinos. CasinoAdvisor recommends Casino Tropez, Omni Casino and Play United.
