The ‘Bullseye’ lottery is unlike a regular lottery. In this case, you choose a 6-digit number between 0,00,000 and 9,99,999 and you would win if you have picked exactly the same number. Hence, it gets the name Bullseye. You have many more chances of winning tier 2 prizes and lower. If your number is within 5 either of the sides of the Bullseye, you are eligible for a tier 2 prize. If you manage to get within 50 either side, you can win the third-tier prize. In a similar manner, you have prizes of different levels for numbers in the range of 500, 5000 and 50,000 on any side.
In the game of daily draw, the results are announced at 6 p.m. and the ticket sales for the next draw go live at ten minutes past six. You can purchase multiple tickets for the Bullseye at a discounted price. A single ticket would cost the players $2, but in case you choose to pay beforehand for 7 consecutive draws, you would end up paying only 10 dollars instead of the normal 14 dollars. Similarly, for 14 draws you will be charged only 20 dollars instead of 28 dollars.
To play the game, you only have to choose a combination of 6 digits as your chosen number. You are allowed to choose 3 such combinations. To keep the game fair for the lower tiers of the game, the numbers 00,00,000 and 9,99,999 are assumed to be adjacent. In order to play, you simply select a 6-digit number combination – you can choose up to 3 combinations per Bullseye play slip.
This is a tool to help you get your number generated randomly rather than you manually deciding the number for every draw. This is possible when DIPS is used for generating the number for a ticket for your next draw. Buying a Dips ticket is the same as buying a simple ticket other than the fact that the number is randomly drawn rather than you are choosing the number yourself.
Even with dips, you can choose to buy 7 or 14 tickets at the same time for a discounted price as mentioned earlier.
You can win the jackpot for the Bullseye only if you can match the 6-digit number exactly. The prize amount for the jackpot starts at $1,00,000 and increases thereon, rolling over to the next draw if there is no winner. When the jackpot amount reaches $4,00,000, it triggers the ‘Bullseye Must Be Won’ game. The amount gets distributed proportionately among the winners of the lower tier prizes.
The lower tiers are dependent on the number falling in the range of +/- 5, 50, 500, 5,000 and 50,000 respectively for the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th tiers
Odds of Winning
The odds of winning the jackpot is 1 in 10,00,000. The chances of winning a 2nd tier prize is 1 in 1,00,000, the third 1 in 11,111 and so on. The smallest prize can be won with a probability of 1 in 11. This prize is given in the form of a bonus ticket.
