Darts' spectacular summertime event - the 2012 World Matchplay - runs from July 21-29 and there are a whole host of bookmakers who are offering special offers and promotions on the tournament.

The Betfair World Matchplay is one of the most eagerly anticipated televised tournaments of the year and for many players, the highlight of their season.

The world's elite players will descend on the Winter Gardens stage in Blackpool for the week-long £400,000 event and will all be eyeing glory as they chase down Phil Taylor's title.

There are plenty of betting opportunities on the World Matchplay and that means that the major bookmakers are falling over themselves to offer extra value to customers, in the form of enhanced odds, extra place terms and money back specials. We have included some of the best below:

Bet365 are without doubt THE bookmaker to bet with during this year's World Matchplay. 

Over 30 pre-tournament markets are available including nine darter specials on the likes of Phil Taylor and Raymond van Barneveld, plus handicap betting and competitive prices on the main contenders.

The firm are also giving all new customers who open an account using bonus code MAXIMUMBONUS a £200 free bet to use on the World Matchplay.

Paddy Power are known for being generous and the Irish bookmaker are giving all customers enhanced place terms on the World Matchplay. Paddy will pay 1/4 odds on the top four finishers and will also be running enhanced odds accumulators throughout the week.

Ladbrokes have a good affiliation with PDC darts; the World Championship title sponsors are offering one of the widest ranges of World Matchplay markets, including stage of elimination specials for many of the big names. 

All new customers who open an account using bonus code MAXIMUMBONUS will recieve a £50 free bet.

SportingBet have become one of the leading firms for darts betting, they recently introduced markets on ProTour events and are not only offering all new customers a £50 risk free bet on the World Matchplay but they are also top industry price on many of the outside contenders. 

If you open a new account using bonus code MAXIMUMBONUS and place a bet at SporitngBet on this week's tournament you will, therefore, be getting the best possible odds and if your bet loses then the firm will give you your money back, up to a maximum of £50.

Bet Victor have arguably the widest range of markets on the World Matchplay and are running a number of special bets on the tournament, including 'Quarter betting'.
