Playtech’s Jackpot Darts Game Explained

jackpot-dartsAs part of our ongoing series of Arcade game articles we would like to present to you this informative overview on Playtech’s Jackpot Darts game which we are confident is going to appeal to a great number of players.

The idea behind this game is that you have to place one or more wagers on where you think three darts will end up after being thrown at the Dartboard! Fortunately the dart player launching the darts is experienced so the options do not include the floor, the wall and anyone passing the Dartboard.

The game is a multi stake type of game, which does of course mean you can always play it for stake levels of your own choosing. However, be aware that as this game has a large progressive type of jackpot on offer it is one of only a handful of Playtech Arcade games that is not available to play for free.

Jackpot Darts Game Dartboard

If you are new to the game of darts then we will give you a quick run through of the actual Dartboard itself, as it is split up into different segments and any of them is where the darts may end up landing in.

There are a total of twenty different numbers on the Dartboard form one to twenty and each one of them has several different areas in their respective segment.

Starting with the outermost area then working inwards you will find a Double Ring area, the single Ring area, a Triple Ring area and another Single Ring area. In the middle of the Dartboard there is a Bullseye position directly in the middle of the board and outside that there is an Outer Bullseye circle.

Betting Opportunities on the Jackpot Darts Game

You are allowed to place a range of different bets on each game of this Jackpot Darts game you play, however be aware that the maximum number of bets per single game you play is limited to four of them. Here is an overview of all of the betting options available.

Single Bets – You can place a wager on just how many of the three darts will hit the Single Ring area of each throw of the darts.

Double Bets – Should you think one or more of the darts will hit the Double Ring area after being thrown then you need to wager on the Double Bet options.

Treble Bets – You can of course also place a wager on how many, if any, of the three darts will end up in any of the Triple Ring areas of the Dartboard after being thrown.

Outer Bull – The Outer Bullseye position is another area of the Dartboard the darts may land in and once again you can place a wager on them doing so.

Inner Bull – The final standard bet you can place when playing this Jackpot Darts Arcade game is whether any of the darts will land in the Bullseye area of the Dartboard.

Low – Mid – High – Another bet that may interest you is one whereby you can bet on the total score of the three darts. You can wager they will fall in between a low, mid or high spread of numbers as displayed on the betting area of the game.

Single Number Bets – You can also place a wager that at least one of the three darts when thrown will end up hitting the single Rung area of any one single number.

Jackpot Bet – You can also place a Jackpot wager when playing this Jackpot Darts game and if the end result is the one required to win that progressive jackpot then as long as you have placed that wager the entire progressive jackpot displayed on the jackpot meter will be yours.

In case you are wondering all three darts have to hit the Bullseye or Outer Bullseye for you to win the progressive jackpot and if they do you must have placed that Jackpot wager to win it.
