How Many Points Is A Bullseye In Darts Worth?

For people who are very new to darts, it is a common perception that maybe the bullseye is everything in darts. Although the bullseye carries a lot of points that you can score by hitting right in the center of the dartboard, in that red area, there are other areas you can hit that can score more points than the bullseye. But for this article let’s just stick to the bullseye and learn how many points are there in the bullseye and how to score them.

There are many ways to score in darts, but the bullseye is the most difficult to hit. It is the smallest, most distinct area of the dartboard. If you’re a beginner, the bullseye can be intimidating, but don’t worry, it’s simple!

In darts, the bullseye is actually divided into two sections. The inner (also called the double bull) and outer (or single bull) portion is worth a certain number of points. The outer, green area is worth 25 points while the inner one is worth 50. The red area is the more valuable of the two, and the outer portion is worth only 25.

In darts, the bullseye is the most important target, but it’s not always the most valuable. In most games, the bullseye is worth only fifty points while a triple 20 can be worth sixty.

That is because each number in darts has a double and a triple section. These double and triple sections are so small it is very difficult to hit them. Want to get ahead faster than your opponent? Practice throwing darts on that section of the dartboard where the number is multiplied by two and three. Also, the higher the triple, the higher the score.

That being said, since you know now that if you hit other targets than the bullseye, it is possible to score beyond 60(that is 20 hit 3 times in a round) and up to 180! Yes, 180 can be achieved in one round only if all your darts hit the triple 20. 180 is the highest score you can make in one round which comprise of three throws.

In a x01 game, there are many sections of the dart that if you successfully hit can be worth more than the Inner bullseye. For example, a triple 19 is worth 57 points, and a triple 17 is worth 52 points! Interesting isn’t it!

What happens if you hit the bullseye at the end of the game?

In the 501’s and 301’s, each player is allowed 3 throws per round. Although you’d think a double is always counted as a double, the bullseye does not come under that rule.

For example, if you have 50 points left and your dart throw hits the inner bullseye, you don’t need a double to win. You have won because you hit the bullseye! Yaay!

In the game of darts, the bullseye is the ultimate target. It is so small that it is often difficult to hit. A bullseye is the target of your game. It is the same size as an archery bullseye. It is important to aim for it. The closer you can get to the target, the better.

As per the regulation standards, the bullseye, which is the standard center of your dart board, should be at the height of 5 feet and 8 inches. That is around the same height of most eye levels which are going to play the game. The regulation standards have been set up very thoughtfully in the dart game, making it fair for everyone playing.

Conclusion

A bullseye is something all players must practice to aim for. The reason is the points, and well if you even hit the outer ring, which is 25 points. If your dart sways away from the bullseye, you may score a 3 or a 20, but that is based on pure luck. 

One more advantage of hitting the inner bullseye is that you may be exempted from scoring a double if you just have 50 score remaining.

That is why it is important that you practice the game and specially the bullseye as much as you can.
