Mr Vegas, owned by leading gaming operator Videoslots, has walked onto the oche as the new title sponsor of the Grand Slam of Darts, hosted by the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC), in a landmark move for the Malta-based operator.
Under this multi-year deal, Mr Vegas will also become title sponsor of the Nordic Masters events and has agreed a round of “Mr Vegas Darts Nights” with the PDC across the UK to connect players and fans with legends of the sport.
With this deal, Mr Vegas further strengthens its visibility in the UK and the Nordics in line with the company’s ambition to become one of the most beloved and approachable casino brands.
The Mr Vegas Grand Slam of Darts is being held at Aldersley Leisure Village, Aldersley, Wolverhampton from November 11th to November 19th 2023 and boasts former champions such as darts legend, Phil “The Power” Taylor and last year’s victor, Michael Smith, who also won the 2023 PDC World Darts Championship.
The next Mr Vegas Nordic Masters is scheduled for June 2024 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Both events are televised live, with a complete coverage of the finals being broadcast in the UK and several other countries.
Ulle Skottling, Deputy CEO at Mr Vegas, said: “This partnership comes at the right time for us, and to be the title sponsor at two of the biggest darts events in the world is a huge opportunity for Mr Vegas.
“We believe our brand has a great connection with the sport, bringing “that Vegas feeling” to darts and are thrilled to see Mr Vegas associated with the sport on a global scale.”

We look forward to seeing the Mr Vegas brand up in lights in Wolverhampton.”
