Casino software providers continue to develop online casino games which cater to the needs of online players. These games that they create are not only those which are under the category of more games such as blackjack, roulette, pokies, baccarat, craps and poker. There are also those games which are not as popular as those mentioned, but fun and fascinating, still. One such game is darts.
Darts is not particularly a casino game in real life. It is a sport that can be played in pubs in some countries. However, the fascination and interest that people place on the game is undeniable. Playtech took this in consideration and developed two casino games based on darts. Both are fixed odds but only one has a progressive jackpot. These two casino games are known as Darts and Jackpot Darts. The latter one is the dart game that has a progressive jackpot. These games are located under the Arcade section at most online casinos that Playtech power up.
The play structure of this particular casino game is as follows: As with most casino games, you first have to define the wagers you wish to play on a particular round. You are allowed three kinds of wagers in this game and they are described as follows:
The first wager stipulates that the three darts that you would throw need to hit some specific section on the board. This circular board is arranged at the center screen of the game. The sections provided in the game are the single rings, double rings, treble rings, Inner Bull and Outer Bull.
The second and more complicated wager stipulates that some specific combination is going to be hit by your darts. This combination should be hit some number of times, ranging from 0 to 3. Combinations can be based on the colors or rings which represent different sections on the dart board.
The third wager stipulates that the total score of all the darts you shot is equal to a certain value. Each section of the dart board is equivalent to some value. Ranges of points are selected in this third wager instead of specific values. You win the wager if your darts fall into the selected range you've chosen..
You place your desired bet by choosing a chip denomination located on the lower part of the window and clicking on the section on the dart board you wish to wager on. The odds for every section are displayed in the Bet Odds section of the game. This is seen for each board section while your mouse hovers over them. You can either choose to display the odds in decimal or fraction form. You are not restricted to a single bet per round since multiple wagers are allowed in this game.
The game officially starts once you've completed placing your wagers and you click on the Bet button. A disembodied hand then throws three darts on the dart board. The payouts that you may have received from your wagers are explicitly displayed in the Results section of the game. You can choose to check out this payout or enhance it by playing on the gamble game. In this gamble game, a different board and dart is used. The payouts (loss) for such a bonus is increased or decreased depending on where the darts would land in the board section.
