The month of December means many things to many people, but for a certain type of chap (let us face it, there are not too many ladies in the Ally Pally crowd at this time of year), it can only mean one thing, two weeks of world-class arrows. For these folk, December 25th is not Christmas Day, it is that annoying pause in the World Darts Championship. And trust us, not even a Morecambe and Wise special on repeat can compensate for 24 hours without any darts.
The PDC on Sky Sports has injected the archetypal pub game with the glamorous walk-in girls, a boisterous, partying holiday crowd, and that contagious theme tune by Planet Funk. It is must-see TV throughout the festive cold snap, and is must-bet action on coral.co.uk. Whilst the tournament was once synonymous with the legendary Phil Taylor, recent years have seen it open up to a variety of fresh faces, many of whom have learnt at the feet of the master. Coral.co.uk will price up every match from the first round through to the final, offering game and leg betting as well as markets on the highest checkouts in each tie. We will also offer you the chance to bet on the number of 180s in each fixture, the number of ton-plus scores and even a price on the holy grail for alldarts-players, the nine-dart finish.
With short legs, and matches whose outcomes can hinge on the tiniest of margins, top-level darts is tailor-made (pun resisted) for online betting. Sessions typically start in the early afternoon, and the action oftendoes not finish until close to midnight. Here at coral.co.uk it really is trebles for show and doubles for dough. Oy! Oy! Oy!
