Bullseye slots review

Microgaming has proven time and time again they can take just about any seemingly random subject matter and turn it into a successful theme for an online pokie. For their latest offering, Microgaming has based a new pokie around a 1980’s British gameshow called Bullseye.

The show was hosted by comedian Jim Bowen until its eventual demise in 1995. The show was a mix of darts and general knowledge questions.

The people down at Microgaming have stayed pretty true to the British television show, even incorporating the theme music for the show as the background music for the game. Like the show itself, the theme music used as background music gives the game a fun, jaunty feel which can make you smile.

The graphics in Bullseye aren’t the best: they are retro, which is fitting given the 1980’s/90’s subject matter, so in the grand scheme of the game, the graphics are just right.

Symbols

Microgaming has decided to discard the traditional symbols of 10, Jack, Queen, King and Ace and has created their own symbols. In descending order of value the symbols are the Bully Bullseye Wild Symbol, the speedboat, the caravan, the red hatchback car, the dart tail, the cash, the darts, the stein, Bully and the sunglasses and playing card symbol.

The Bully Bullseye wild symbol comes stacked during regular play and free games which we always love to see.

Gameplay and bonus features

Any three or more scattered Free Spins symbols triggers 15 free games. During your free games all wins are doubled and the feature can be re-triggered which is always great to see from any self respecting pokie. As with the regular game the Bully Bullseye wild symbol can appear stacked which can help you on your way to some big wins.

The Bullseye Prize Board bonus round is triggered when the bonus dart board symbol appears on reels one and five. From there Jim Bowen’s voice over talks you through the bonus game. You get five darts to throw at the dart board with eight sections of the dart board to choose from.

Each dart you throw reveals a prize which can award you anywhere from 2x your original bet to 15x your original bet. You can usually do pretty well out of the Bullseye Prize Board bonus round when you finally trigger it.

Verdict

Microgaming, as usual, have come to the table with a fresh and original game. Adapting a popular British game show into an online pokie may seem obscure to some but the end product Microgaming shared with us doesn’t rely on an intimate knowledge of the game show to make sense. Bullseye can stand alone as its own entity.

The addition of a bonus round as well as a free games feature is always a plus for online slots: the more chances you have to win it big, the better. I always like to see stacked wild symbols in a game because it makes me feel as though a big win is always just around the corner.

Everything about Bullseye works. It is a pleasure to play and keeps the fun coming. Log on to your favourite online casino and play Bullseye for free or real money today.
