Do you remember the 1980s quiz show named Bullseye, hosted by Jim Bowen and Tony Green, with their friend the cartoon Bully. Based on a darts theme, three pairs of players would compete to progress through the rounds and win a chance at Bully’s Prize Board, and even take on the Gamble to win the Star Prize.
It was a fantastic show that ran for many years and now you can relive all the best moments from the show thanks to Microgaming’s superb new Bullseye slot.
This 5×3 reel has 243-ways to win and you can set a coin level of just 0.01 or 0.02 per spin and there is a maximum bet of 15.00, meaning that this is a slot accessible for all. Add into that a potential coin jackpot of 121,000 and you have a Bullseye Star Prize well worth winning!
The base game features a host of recognisable symbols across the reels including the famous tankard, bendy Bully, darts, a pile of cash, Jim’s specs and quiz cards and many more. Indeed, almost everything you see, down to the games livery, harkens back to those glory days of quizzing.
The base game offers plenty of fun but it is when you get into the two main bonus games that the slot really comes to life. The first of these is the Prize Board round, which is activated when you land the Prize Board symbol on reels 1 and 5 at the same time.
Here, you pick five of the nine prizes and they reveal a retro 1980s prize. Don’t worry though, as there is a cash value equivalent to the prize in the form of a multiplier from 2x to 15x your stake.
The in game Scatter symbol is a dart board and when you land three or more of these across the reels you trigger a 15 free spins bonus round. You can retrigger this bonus and all winnings are doubled, unless you land a scatter symbol in which case your multiplier is randomly selected between 5x and a massive 100x your win.
Bully’s Prize Board can also be triggered from within free spins too for added value.
This is a fantastic and enjoyable slot on a retro quiz theme that will have fans of the TV show and slots fans in general quickly falling in love with the game.
Bullseye is released this December.
