Mining for gold? With a pickaxe? That’s just so two-thousand and late! The pros do it boom boom pow style. Play Fire in The Hole by Nolimit City and blow your way to riches. Use all sorts of explosives in this highly volatile slot machine and achieve the generous max win of 60,000x your stake.
Betting Options and Bonus Features
Fire in the Hole is set in a collapsing mine. The mine represents the cascading feature in which, winning symbols explode and disappear. New symbols then fall from above and make way for new possible winning combinations. Each spin begins with only 3 rows but increases with each number of collapses/cascades.
The collapsing mine can expand up to 6 active rows and each row increases the number of possible ways to win in the following manner:
- 3 Rows - 729 ways to win
- 4 Rows - 4,096 ways to win
- 5 Rows - 15,625 ways to win
- 6 Rows - 46,656 ways to win
The game’s main features are its two exploding wilds; the xBomb Wild Multiplier and the Wild Mining feature. xBomb Wild substitutes for any regular winning combination but also explodes regardless of whether it's part of a payline. The explosion moreover adds +1 to your win multiplier and guarantees a trigger of the collapsing mine.
The Wild Mining feature is triggered whenever 3 or more of the same symbols form a horizontal line. The trigger symbols will be replaced by Wild Mining symbols in the middle position and blow up all positions above the bar.
In addition to the already exciting base game, the Fire in the Hole online slot has an even crazier free spins bonus game. You can trigger the Lucky Wagon Spins bonus game by collecting 3 or more scatter symbols represented by golden nuggets.
Your bonus spins will start with only 3 free spins but will reset back to 3 every time you land a coin in the reel area. Your win multiplier will accumulate for the duration of the free spins feature and your top row will possess 6 enhancer features:
- Coin values - adds a value of 1x to 100x to coins below the reel.
- Multipliers - boosts all coins on the reel by the multiplier.
- Dynamite - blows up any position blockers and boosts your coin values. It also has the chance to reveal chests in the bottom row.
- Bag - collects all coins in the reel and adds them to your total.
- Chest - collects the coins from the entire grid making more space for additional coins to land.
- Dwarf - is the most valued and rare enhancer. The dwarf becomes sticky and collects the values of each coin in every following spin.
As always, Nolimit City players that want to skip the base and achieve the Beer Time feature (max win of 60,000), can opt to purchase the three alternative bonus buys. For 60x, 157x, and 500x your stake respectively.
Fire in the Hole is one of the more complicated slot games. The slot seems like Nolimit City’s version of Money Train 2. That being said the game still has really good potential. The gameplay is very fun. Or at least in the beginning. It gets repetitive after some time. I would even say that the base game has more fun mechanics than the bonus. That says a lot, considering I had some pretty big moments in my $10,000 bonus buy openings.
