North American Dart Organization (NADO)

We are pleased to announce that J&J Ventures Amusements has joined forces with dozens of other dart league operators in North America to form the North American Dart Organization. NADO is an expansion of the successful J&J Ventures Amusements Dart Player Rewards Program. In addition to local player rewards programs in all franchisee markets the NADO program will add expanded prize money throughout the North American market. Current projections anticipate the program to generate over $1,000,000.00 in prizes to players across North America. $300,000.00 is the estimated purse for the inaugural finale event to be held in Indianapolis, IN on October 2-4, 2020.
