The staggering amount of money Luke Littler has earned per dart throw in his senior career

The staggering amount of money Luke Littler has earned per dart throw in his senior career

Luke Littler has pocketed a life-changing amount of money since his World Championship debut.

Luke Littler's earnings have been broken down into prize money per dart following his Bahrain Masters final win over Michael van Gerwen.

The 17-year-old made history on January 19 when he secured his first senior PDC title with a 8-5 victory over three-time world champion Van Gerwen at the Bahrain International Circuit.

Littler, who was guaranteed £1,250 just for appearing in Bahrain, banked the top prize of £20,000 after beating Van Gerwen, Gerwyn Price, Nathan Aspinall and Man Lok Leung.

It was another life-changing pay day for the Runcorn-born thrower. Just weeks earlier, he earned £200,000 at the World Championship after finishing runner-up to world number one Luke Humphries.

Had he scooped the main prize, the teenager would have walked away with £500,000.

Still, Littler has earned a life-changing amount since emerging on the darts scene.

In fact, X account Darts Orakel has worked out that the 17-year-old has earned £59 in prize money for every dart thrown in the senior PDC tournaments he has played in.

As of January 2024, it is estimated that Littler has a net worth of almost £500,000, according to The Sun, who say he could be worth £40 million one day as he prepares to take part in the Premier League.

A new study has also found that 'The Nuke' could earn up to £2,000 per sponsored Instagram post.

The teenager currently has 1.1 million followers on the social media platform and with an engagement rate of 13%, Littler is set to earn a huge amount.

So what will he spend his winnings on? Earlier this month, Littler told talkSPORT that he was planning on upgrading his car, despite at the time not being old enough to drive.

While pointing to the Skoda sponsor on his shirt, he said: "I've got a Skoda so I'm sure they can sort me out!"

Littler also hinted that he would spend his World Championship winnings on a trip to Alton Towers.

After beating Matt Campbell at the Ally Pally, he said: "All my friends are watching at home. We've always said we need to go Blackpool or Alton Towers so I think they will be looking at me like 'you're paying, Luke' and I'll be like, yeah, okay!"
