It’s fair to say throwing arrows at a cork board is pretty lucrative business these days.

The lucky players that descended on Alexandra Palace in London for the Paddy Power World Darts Championship are battling it out for the Sid Waddell Trophy – and more money than you can shake a stick at.

Michael Smith claimed the most prestigious prize in the game last year when beating Michael van Gerwen in the most recent final to bag half a million British pounds. Woof!

Just reaching the tournament itself is a decent enough pay day, which is good news for the 64 qualifiers that competed in the first round before the big boys entered the fun in round two.

The near three weeks of fun at the legendary Alexandra Palace in London began on Friday, December 15 and runs through to the grand final on Wednesday, January 3.

Paddy Power World Darts Championship odds can be found on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power, otherwise the prize money breakdown for this season’s tournament at Ally Pally is below.
