Highest Checkout - The figure that a darts player wins a leg on is known as a ‘checkout’. The higher the checkout, the more impressive it is, making highest checkout an interesting market to bet on.
Legs Handicap - Similar to an Asian Handicap in football betting, Legs Handicap gives a player a legs advantage or disadvantage. Rather than -1 or +2 in football, legs handicaps are a bit bigger, often +3.5 or -4.5.
9 Dart Finish - A 9 Dart Finish is the darts equivalent of a striker scoring a hattrick. A 9 dart finish requires 9 perfect darts, that allow the player to checkout after just 3 throws. It rarely happens, but when it does, it could mean a big payout in darts betting.
