Wild Bull LIVE! - Video Online Competition

The NEW Wild Bull LIVE!® dart machines let players compete in games, league matches and tournaments from separate geographical locations, LIVE, online and from machine-to-machine. This unique ability increases participation, increases revenue and expands the reach of dart Associations all while preserving the social aspect of the game. 
Using the LIVE!® machine's camera-based system, a player arrives to his/her favorite location, logs into their LIVE! machine and requests video online competition. Via the server, the system identifies any person from another LIVE!® machine or location who wants to compete. The machine shows the name and location of the contestants. If both players agree to play, the game begins. 
How you play:
As player #1 throws his or her darts, player #2 watches the video on their machine at their location. Player #2 sees video of player #1 throwing, sees their darts hitting the genuine dartboard and the score posted. As player #1 removes his darts, the LIVE!® machine in the other location automatically lights up, indicating that player #2 may now throw their darts. When player #2 throws, player #1 watches from his/her machine. They see the opponent behind the throw line, darts being thrown, a picture of the dartboard and the scores on the scoreboard — all in real time. 
Both individuals and teams enjoy video online competition.
Imagine the excitement for players in Madrid to compete against players in Munich in real time and from the comfort of their favorite location. 
Online darting is also popular within the same city. Players or teams might be:
• unable to travel
• concerned about the risk of drinking and driving
• otherwise unable to find competition in their local bar
• competitive against others outside their location 
• interested in increasing the size of a tournament or league by adding a few teams remotely.
Preserve The Social Aspect of Darting
Video online competition is not just for casual darting or individuals looking to play others outside their bar. In fact, video online darting is often used for league matches or tournaments when the majority of teams are in the same location. In these instances, players and teams who are unable to travel, may still compete in the league or event by joining online. The end result is increased participation, a larger player base served by the dart association and more revenue for the Wild Bull LIVE!® operator, league and location-all while preserving the social aspect of darts.
