Darts fans can play Bullseye on new AR boards – with virtual speedboat prize

Darts fans that have always wanted to have a go at iconic gameshow Bullseye can now do just that with augmented reality boards – with eyes on winning Bully's special prize.

Bully is back in the form of AR with a new interactive game rolling out in UK venues which includes the memorable darts and trivia combination rounds from the TV show.

Bullseye originally ran from 1981 until 1995 with a peak audience of almost 20 million viewers, with the game still affectionately remembered by fans of the sport and beyond. Those fans can give Bullseye a go at UK venues thanks to new technology that consists of a projector and Unicorn Smartboard as well as accompanying tablet for quizzing.

The new game can also be played at home with the Bullseye app, with players inputting their own scores in a bid to reach Bully's Prize Board and possibly take the gamble.

With former BDO referee Richard Ashdown providing audio accompaniment, the game follows the TV revival of the show on ITV’s Epic Games Shows hosted by Alan Carr.

Fans can follow in the footsteps of Bobby George, Eric Bristow and Jocky Wilson in taking part in Bullseye, which was revived in 2006 with Dave Spikey hosting.

The augmented reality revival of the game went on show at the recent 2023 PDC World Championship at Alexandra Palace, raising thousands in cash for charity.

Almost 4000 darts fans took part in an attempt to score over 101 with six darts in the classic format, while donating to mental health charity Mind.

Of the 4000, 906 players managed to beat the required score with Home Leisure Direct, who have launched the game in pubs and bars across the country making the donation.

A spokesperson said: "Not only is playing the game serious fun, but it also gave attendees the chance to throw some flights outside of viewing the competition.

"Plus, by playing, they were able to help Home Leisure Direct raise money for their charity partner, Mind. Home Leisure Direct is aiming to raise £10,000 through events like this to help the charity."

With the mobile app now launched for players to use at home, classic prizes that can be virtually won include a teasmaid, roller-skates and even a caravan, with locations for the AR game including Gravity Wandsworth detailed here.
