Grand Slam of Darts
The Grand Slam of Darts is the only officially recognised event that pits members of the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC) against members of the British Darts Organisation (BDO). It is a PDC organised event that invites the top players from the BDO across to play in the event.
The tournament begins with a group stage in which 32 players are split into eight groups of four. Every player in each group then plays every other player and, with two points awarded for a win, the top two players from each group progress to the second round. From the second round through to the final it is a straight knockout competition.

Grand Slam of Darts Betting
Given the Grand Slam of Darts’ short lifespan there have only ever been two players to reward Grand Slam of Darts betting punters. Naturally, Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor is one of them, the other is BDO player Scott Waites.
Grand Slam of darts betting was dominated by PDC players, and in particular Phil Taylor, in its formative years. However, BDO players have begun to cause more and more upsets in recent years with Scott Waites being the organisations top-performing player by far. After losing out to Taylor in the final of the 2009 event he went one better in 2010, beating James Wade in the final to claim the Grand Slam of Darts crown.
The most popular of Grand Slam of Darts betting markets is the outright winner market where punters bet on who will win the tournament and collect the Grand Slam of Darts title. There are, however, many other outright betting markets. From the winner of each group, to whether there will be a nine-darter and how many 180s will be hit in the tournament, Darts Betting fans can bet on almost every aspect of the tournament.
Of course, there is also a vast and diverse range of Grand Slam of Darts betting markets available for every individual match throughout the group stages and the knockout stages of the event. Match odds betting, correct score betting, number of 180s, highest checkout, handicap betting and much more, the Bookmakers have it all covered.
