Bullseye video slot has been themed on the classic UK game show of the same name that was extremely popular during the 80’s and 90’s.
Featuring original show host Jim Bowen voiceovers, Bully the mascot and numerous other references to the TV show, the Microgaming title does well to capture the true spirit of the original programme.
The game of darts is at the centre of attention, whereas remaining game symbols depict some of the more expensive prizes on offer, such as speedboat, caravan and classic sports car. The adorable Bully appears to follow you every step of the way.Do
The game was developed by Microgaming and released in December 2015 and it is not difficult to conclude that this is one of the better video slots to have been designed by the world-famous software provider in recent years.
Microgaming titles often lack imagination and feature virtually the same bonus rounds, so you will be glad to hear that Bullseye stands out of the crowd. The 243 winning ways format is pretty standard, but the main bonus game has been custom made, which is always nice to see.
How to Play
While you are unlikely to be impressed by the visual appearance, you have to bear in mind that this is exactly what the game show looked like, so there are no objections there on our part, but we rather appreciate that Microgaming did their best to stay true to the original.
Most important game options are found below the reels, with stake ranging from 30 to 300 credits per spin and $0.01, $0.02 and $0.05 the three available coin denominations.
View Pays, Bet Max and Spin buttons are large and brightly coloured, and there will be no problems there.
The first extra feature is pretty standard one as three, four or five Scatter icons in any position trigger the Free Spins round. You then receive 15 free games, where all wins are multiplied by x2 and the feature can be re-triggered.
Meanwhile, Bully’s Prize Bonus is unlocked when Bonus symbols appear anywhere on reels I and V at the same time. The player is then awarded five dart throws and gets to select where the darts will land. A prize is revealed after each throw that is immediately turned into casino credits.
It is also important to note that both Scatter and Bonus icons award instant credit prizes in addition to triggering said features when three or more appear anywhere.
If mind-blowing wins you are after, then you will love the Bullseye video slot that has the maximum theoretical payout of staggering 1,215,000 coins.
But, even if you eventually miss out on the top prize, you probably will not be disappointed by the winning potential.
The game offers frequent payouts that range from those not worth mention to serious wins which can definitely improve your account balance.
The bonus round does not appear to be difficult to unlock, and we were able to trigger the Bully’s Prize Board Bonus within first few spins on the game.
Bullseye is a perfect proof that you don’t need cinematic graphics and flashy game symbols to create a high-quality slot.
The Microgaming title instead boasts an engaging story-line, fitting bonus rounds and very good overall payouts, and all this combined together makes it quite appealing.
Even if you, like us, knew nothing about the Bullseye game show before coming across the video slot, chances are you will enjoy the unique gaming experience it offers.
