Betfred reveals PDC World Darts Championship money back special

Betfred have confirmed a money back special for the PDC World Darts Championship, which gets underway on Friday.

If you select a player to win a match and they get a 170 checkout, but then go on to lose the match, Betfred will payout as if your selection had won with a free bet.

Unsurprisingly it is Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor who is heading the outright betting market as the tournament draws near. Taylor is 7/4 to win it all, with his main threat coming from Michael van Gerwen at 9/2.

Simon Whitlock is the third favourite to upstage Taylor and van Gerwen, and he insists he is feeling good about his game going into the championship.

The Wizard has never tasted success in the biggest tournament in the sport but came mighty close in 2010 after stunning James Wade (20/1 outright) and Raymond van Barneveld (18/1 outright) en route to the final.

However, the Australian ran into the legend that is Taylor – an obvious favourite in Whitlock’s eyes – and lost 7-3, although he enjoyed a good run last year as well but fell at the semi-final stage to Andy Hamilton.

The 43-year-old though is relishing this year’s tournament though having recently won his first major PDC title at the European Championship, before claiming the Dutch Darts Masters which helped him climb up to fourth in the PDC order of Merit.

“I’m very excited and looking forward to this year’s World Championship,” Whitlock told

“I’ve played very well this year and won my first major at the European Masters and then won the Dutch Masters after that so my form is good.

“The aim is to win but I like to play one match at a time and assess from there.

“Everyone’s playing well this time of year and it’s going to be very tough so I wouldn’t be able to pick a winner.”

You can bet on a host of markets before and during the PDC World Darts Championship, and as a Bettingpro reader you can also claim a £50 free bet to use on the tournament by opening an online account with the bookie.

To get your free bet, follow these simple instructions:

  1. Head to Betfred and open up a new account
  2. Place your bet of £5 or more
  3. Betfred will then give you a free bet to the same value, up to a maximum of £50
