Although the younger generation might miss the reference, this Microgaming pokie is based on the TV gameshow Bullseye, which centered around the game of darts, was hosted by the presenter and comedian Jim Bowen and ran from 1982 to 1995 in the United Kingdom. There is a lot on offer for fans of darts and this TV show, with Bullseye available on Spin Palace and other top online casinos.
The graphics are poor. Microgaming would probably call them “retro”, but “dated” would be more accurate. You will find symbols such as darts, dartboards, targets and prizes, as well as the iconic Bullseye logo. There are 243 ways to win, 5 reels and a useful feature or two.
This is not a hugely popular pokie and it hasn’t generated a huge number of plays over the years, but this probably has more to do with the fact that the theme appeals to a limited demographic than anything to do with the pokie itself.
You can bet for as little as $0.01 per line on this pokie, but the lowest amount per spin is a little higher. The game uses a credit system though, so be sure to check the monetary value of your stake before spinning.
There is a free spins round on Bullseye and there is also a bonus game, which plays out on a different screen and is worth waiting for. We found that the free spin round was more generous, but we preferred the bonus feature. These features can also activate multipliers and additional wilds.
We have fond memories of the TV show that lends its title to this pokie. It is something we have not given much thought to over the years, but something that this pokie helped us to remember. The nostalgic value alone was enough to get us excited about this game and also went someway to helping us ignore the poor aesthetics. Away from that, this is a decent pokie, but it is far from the best we have played and leaves the player wanting in many areas.
