Darts is the ultimate pub game; it’s not quite a sport but it’s certainly a pastime and one that’s played by millions of people around the world. We’ve seen a few conversions to the computer screen in our time and here we have one more. It’s the Darts online slot from Ash Gaming and it falls squarely into our Arcade category of games.
The first thing to note is that you don’t actually control the throw of the darts yourself, that’s all automatic. What you do is pick which bets you’d like to place on a wide variety of outcomes; Darts is something like a cross between roulette and, well…..darts.
There’s a nicely rendered dartboard in the centre of the screen and on the left are all the betting options available to you which we’ll explain shortly. On the right of the screen you can see the results of the previous and the current throws. Underneath the board are the various betting buttons plus the chip selector.
How It Works
Once you’ve selected the value of the chip you have three main options to bet on as follows:
Dart Combinations – here you can choose the colour of the segment and whether the dart will land on a single, double or treble; you can also choose how many darts will land on that particular choice.
Total Score – here you have a variety of totals to pick from, from as little as 3 – 20 up to 101 – 180. You can also bet on wider pairs of totals for narrower odds and there are also low (3 – 37) and high (40 – 180) options.
The Dartboard – just click on the dartboard – easy! A chip will be placed on whichever segment you choose and, as with all other bets, the odds will be displayed in the small area to the right of the board.
Now just click ‘bet’ and the darts will be flung pretty amateurishly towards the screen.
This bonus game (Game Two above) looks like it’s straight from Jim Bowen’s classic TV show Bullseye and as you can see from the screenshot below the board is now altered into one with red and black segments. Hitting red will apply a multiplier of 1x or 2x while black will halve your winnings or remove them completely. Of course you don’t have to gamble at all, you can just keep your winnings.
You’d have to be some sort of mathematical savant to work out which value chips to place on which selections to enable the best chance of a win; saying that, it’s good fun and there are some appropriately darty sound effects to accompany you on the oche.
