Luke Littler has been making a name for himself recently as he has become one of the most talked-about sports personalities due to his darts success and tender age.

The teenage sensation has so far defeated the likes of five-time world champion Raymond van Barneveld and 2018 winner Rob Cross in the World Darts Championship 2024.

After 96 players took part in the championship, Littler, who is only 16 years old, is the youngest player to make it to the final.

He will face pre-tournament favourite Luke Humphries tonight (January 3) at Alexandra Palace in London.

But how much could either Littler or Humphries be taking home? Let’s take a look at the prize money.

Commenting about the build-up the the world final this year, Littler said: “I’ll keep doing what I have been doing.

“I don’t wake up until 12, in the morning go for my ham and cheese omelette, come here and have my pizza, and then go on the practice board.

“It is what I have been doing every day – if it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.”
