Bullseye is one of the most recent additions to Lotto New Zealand. With the first-ever Lotto New Zealand game taking place on July 22nd, 1987, Bullseye only launched 22 years later in 2009. The first Bullseye draw to ever take place was on October 19th, 2009.
Bullseye is a super simple lottery game with draws taking place every day at 6 pm. Players select any six-digit number between 000000 and 999999, with the main goal of getting as close as they can to the Bullseye number drawn. If you match your number to the exact number drawn - you win the jackpot of $100,000 - $400,000! While the odds of doing so are quite slim (1 in 1,000,000), you can still win lower division prizes if you are within at least 50,000 numbers either side. For example, if the Bullseye number is 709,000 and the number you chose is 660,000 - you are within 49,000 numbers and you win the Sixth Division prize. The closer you are - the higher the prize! Here are all the exact requirements and odds of winning for each prize division:
|Match the exact Bullseye number
|1 in 1,000,000
|Be within 1 to 5 numbers either side of the Bullseye number
|1 in 100,000
|Be within 6 to 50 numbers either side of the Bullseye number
|1 in 11,111
|Be within 51 to 500 numbers either side of the Bullseye number
|1 in 1,111
|Be within 501 to 5000 numbers either side of the Bullseye number
|1 in 111
|Be within 5001 to 50000 numbers either side of the Bullseye number
|1 in 11
Bullseye has only been around for a little over 10 years now, therefore, no changes have yet been made to the game since it launched.
