Two-time world champion Gary Anderson has resolved his wifi troubles and will take part in the PDC Home Tour.
The Flying Scotsman had previously pulled out of the competition, citing connectivity troubles at his home.
He will join the action on Saturday night as the last four groups of the tournament have been confirmed.
There are other high-profile stars who will get a second bite of the cherry, having previously finished as runners-up in their respective groups.
Reigning world champion Peter Wright, two-time Grand Slam winner Gerwyn Price and Premier League challenger John Henderson are among those who will be in action.
