A 170 Checkout is the highest possible score a leg of a darts match can be won from with three darts based on the standard rules of the game. The rules state a leg can only be won with the final dart landing on either a double or a bullseye.
A 170 checkout is also referred to as a Big Fish or a maximum checkout and is considered a difficult checkout, as it requires hitting a bullseye on the final dart.
How is a 170 Checkout used in Sports Betting?
Bets are often taken on the method of victory per leg, and the amount of 170 checkouts in a game.
For example, in a match that is the best of five sets, a player must win three legs to win a set. That means a minimum of three legs per set will be played, allowing punters to bet on how many 170 checkouts there may be throughout the game. The quality of players involved and the likelihood of the volume of legs should be taken into consideration. The more legs the better the chance of a 170 checkout and a winning bet.
Bets such as this are usually found in darts sub markets. Nine-dart-finishes and match winners are often more popular markets and, as such, are more commonly offered by bookmakers.

On the professional stage, beating your opponent with a 170 checkout can be deemed poor etiquette and classed as showboating…but players like to do it anyway.
