The 1982 Embassy World Darts Championship saw Scotland's first World Darts Champion, when Jocky Wilson defeated John Lowe in the final. Wilson was making his first final appearance while Lowe was contesting in his fourth final in five years. Wilson would win the match 5-3 and claim the £6,500 first prize.

The tournament's reigning champion Eric Bristow suffered a shock first round exit to Northern Ireland's Steve Brennan, who then defeated Dave Whitcombe to reach the quarterfinals, losing to Stefan Lord. Another former champion also lost in the first round, Scotland’s Angus Ross defeated Wales’ Leighton Rees.
