DARTSLIVE Partners with Bodugi for World Exclusive Soft-tip Darts Betting
DARTSLIVE, the name behind the biggest soft tip darts tournament in the world, aptly named THE WORLD soft darts championship, has announced that it is partnering with social gaming company, Bodugi Technology, to offer customers the first ever opportunity to bet on soft tip darts.
Markets for THE WORLD opened on 2nd December, and customers will be able to register and bet exclusively with Bodugi.com on the outright winner of the competition and on individual matches from the Quarter Final stages onwards. THE WORLD GRAND FINAL will feature the 100 top ranked soft tip darts players, with the qualification rounds taking place on 14th December, and culminating in the GRAND FINAL Tournament on 15th December when the winner of the $1,000,000 HKD prize will be decided.
Michael Wilson, CSO of Bodugi Technology said of the agreement: “We’re hugely excited to be partnering with DARTSLIVE to offer betting on soft tip darts. With steel tip darts going from strength to strength in the UK and millions tuning in to watch and bet on darts, we believe soft tip darts has the potential to be even bigger, given its accessibility and global reach and are poised in anticipation of a “soft tip” explosion over the next few years. With our range of betting and pay-to-play skill gaming technology, we feel privileged to be working with the DARTSLIVE team to help bring soft tip darts and the first of a variety of new product offerings to a wider audience.”
DARTSLIVE is part of the SEGA-SAMMY group of companies. Based in Japan, with offices in Hong Kong, San Francisco, and London, DARTSLIVE is leading the rapid expansion of soft tip darts across the globe. DARTSLIVE are the creators of innovative soft tip darts boards and the hugely successful chain of iDarts bars. Players are given special cards which allow the tracking of their playing statistics online, and enable them to compete against other players anywhere in the world.
