Bullseye is brought to you by Microgaming and is a 5 reel, 243 ways to win based on the popular British television show that aired in the 1980s. Hosted by comedian Jim Bowen, it become a cult favourite which centred on darts – 3 pairs of contests answer questions to win prizes ranging from new cars to luxury holidays. The game can be played from 30p to £15 a spin and is available only to play on desktop devices (laptop and PC).
Back to the slot game – you can join Jim, Tony and Bully in the greatest darts show of all time. It uses the classic Bullseye music, catchphrases and imagery from the show itself with Bully himself being the central character – it also has speedboats, cars, darts, caravans on the reels (as symbols). There are 2 bonus features to benefit from which are described below.
First up is Bully’s Prize Board Bonus feature which is triggered by getting the dartboard Bonus symbol simultaneously on reels 1 and 5. You will be awarded 5 throws which award a cash prize ranging between 2 and 15 times your stake each giving you the potential to win up to 75 times your stake. However, this game is all about the Free Spins feature.
This is triggered by getting 3 or more Free Spins symbols anywhere on the reels – you will be granted 15 free spins with all wins doubled (i.e. 2x multiplier). You can trigger more free spins though with up to 30 in total available. The bigger wins in Bullseye will come in this feature with up to 8,100 times your stake available!
Bullseye is a simple game really which is medium variance. Graphically quite basic, it’s not one of Microgaming’s best releases but is entertaining enough. I do prefer more complex and volatile offerings like Thunderstruck II or Terminator 2.
