The 1999 Embassy World Professional Darts Championship was held from 2–10 January 1999 at the Lakeside Country Club in Frimley Green, Surrey.

Defending champion Raymond van Barneveld retained his title with victory over Ronnie Baxter in another thrilling final which, like the previous year's decider against Richie Burnett, went to the final set and a tiebreak. Barneveld became the first player to retain the Embassy World Championship since Eric Bristow won it in three consecutive years in 1984, 1985 and 1986.

The standout match of this championship, however, was the quarter-final between Chris Mason and Martin Adams. Adams looked well set for victory when he led 4–1 in sets, but he missed nine darts for the match, and this opened the door for Mason to stage a huge comeback, forcing a final-set tiebreak. Finally, Adams missed a double one which would have forced a sudden-death leg, and Mason hit it to secure a remarkable win. This match also saw no fewer than 29 180s - 16 for Adams and 13 for Mason.[1]
