Microgaming announces the launch of a darts themed online slot game based on the classic TV gameshow Bullseye. Presented by comedian Jim Bowen, the popular UK gameshow was a huge hit during its run between 1981 and 1995.
Based on the game of darts, Bullseye involved three pairs of contestants competing against one another to win prizes. Bully, the darts playing bull was the show’s mascot, making appearances throughout the programme. Microgaming presents the gameshow in a 5×3 reel, 243-ways-to-win slot, with reels based on the programme’s notorious star prizes, a speedboat, caravan and car.
It’s game on during Bully’s special bonus round, triggered by the prize board symbol on reels one and five. The bonus round lets the player step up to the oche for some real darts action. Players throw darts at the board for the chance to win cash prizes depicted by such vintage items as a VCR or carriage clock, worth up to 15x the total bet for each dart thrown.
Furthermore, three or more scatter symbols on the reels takes players to the re-triggerable free spins bonus. 15 Free Spins are presented, during which all wins are doubled, and additional scatter pays between 5x and 100x can be awarded.
With suitably retro graphics and apt sound effects, including the voices of Jim Bowen and co-host Tony Green, Bullseye online slot brings a sense of nostalgia to gameplay. Watch the game promotional video here.
Mike Hebden, Microgaming Head of Casino Games, commented: “This game revisits one of the most-loved television shows of the era. The online slot embraces all the show features that made the programme so popular, including the classic one-liners, prize board, and Bully’s star prizes. Available to operators today, we expect the game to excite fans new and old, and with darts season on the horizon, it is the perfect time to unleash our Bullseye slot.”
