Former world darts champion to play for Galway Hospice

Two times World Darts Champion Adrian ‘Jackpot’ Lewis will take on Team Galway in a charity darts match this Sunday.

The match will take place in Monroe’s Tavern, Dominick Street, at 3pm. Playing for Team Galway will be Liam Gallagher, a student in Coláiste Einde, who has been Irish Youth Darts champion.

Tickets are €15 with proceeds going towards Galway Hospice.

Lewis is a two-time PDC World Darts Champion. He is nicknamed Jackpot, following a visit to a casino whilst competing at the 2005 Las Vegas Desert Classic when he "won" a $72,000 jackpot but was unable to claim the money as he was under-age by US gaming laws – despite being eligible in the UK.[1] During the early part of his career until 2007, he was a protégé of multi-world champion Phil Taylor having practised together in their home city Stoke-on-Trent and made his television debut in 2004, aged 19 at the UK Open.[1]
