Bullseye is a popular alternative to traditional lottery games.
Draws are held daily at 18:00 local time, with results published online a little later.
Entry costs NZD 2.00,with ticket sales closing just before the draw and resuming shortly afterward.
Players enter Bullseye by choosing a six-digit number from 000000 to 999999, or go for a Quick Pick for randomly generated numbers. Players win the jackpot by matching the exact number, but can win multiple smaller prizes by being within 50,000 of the six-digit number.
Advance Play is available for 7 or 14 draws at a time. This makes tickets cheaper, with a 7-day single-line entry costing NZD 10 and a 14-day single-line entry costing NZD 20.
Bullseye does not have any additional games or opportunities to win prizes on top of the main draw.
Bullseye has a guaranteed minimum jackpot of NZD 100,000.
Even though Bullseye is a rollover game, the jackpot cap is NZD 400,000. If the jackpot is not won at this capped amount, it rolls down to the next prize tier. Due to Bullseye being a daily draw, the jackpot can max out quite quickly, with regular big wins at the second and third prize tiers due to the roll down.
