Bullseye

Bullseye launched in 2009 and is drawn daily at 6 pm. Offering a First Division prize of $100,000 or more, it has gotten quite popular among New Zealanders.

To play, you have to choose any six-digit number between 000,000 and 999,999, with the main goal of matching it with the six-digit Bullseye number to be drawn. If your number matches the exact number drawn - the First Division prize is yours!

However, it’s not an all-or-nothing kind of game. If you’re only 5 or fewer numbers off of the main number drawn, you’ll win the second-tier prize of $10,000. Plus, 999,999 and 000,000 are adjacent to one another. This means that if your number was 999,999, while the winning number was 000,003, you were only within 4 numbers of it and you win the second-tier prize. There is a total of six prize tiers in Bullseye.
