Pragmatic Play has announced the addition of a Darts game to its virtual sports suite.
Darts incorporates ‘cutting-edge’ animation and features including ‘ultra-realistic’ player movement and expressions, commentary and background music. In-game participants are selected from a list of 24 names and are required to play against every other competitor twice, alternating first throw rights.
Matches are played every two minutes to maximise revenue opportunities and all bettors view the same match and outcomes simultaneously across scheduled, fixed-odds tournaments, with each outcome decided by RNG.
The default version of the game is in English but can be localised with native language text and currency. Customised logos and branding, unique venue and player names, and bespoke player form and capability options can be provided on request, while RTP and stake limits can also be adjusted.
Darts joins a line-up of virtual sports content such as Fantastic League, Penalty Shootout (football), Horseracing, Steeplechase, Greyhound racing and Force 1 (Formula One).
Irina Cornides, Chief Operating Officer at Pragmatic Play, commented: “Virtual Sports has established itself as a vertical in its own right over recent years and Pragmatic Play’s portfolio of revenue-boosting content makes full use of the genre.
“Darts is enjoying global popularity like never before, with the World Championship exceeding 1.2 million viewers in the UK alone. Our new virtual product builds on this success by offering darts betting fans a new way to enjoy their favourite sports.”
