Fire In The Hole xBomb slot review (Nolimit City)

We thought 2020 was an incredible Nolimit City year, but it looks like 2021 will at least match it!

The year started with some blazing slots like San Quentin xWays (max win 150,000x) and East Coast vs West Coast (max win over 30.000x), and also, this one is one to remember!


Number of paylines: up to 46,656 ways to win

RTP and variance: 96.06% main game (96.07% to 96.96% with Bonus Buy Feature), Extremely high variance

Maximum win: 60,000x the bet (once every 23.5 million is it paid out)

Betting range: $€0.20 – $€50

Bonus features: 3 Free Spins options, Nolimit Bonus Feature Buy

Casino Hipster verdict: VERY HOT! Again some new features (xBomb and Wild Mining) and last but not least, a high win potential.

Bonus info & terms

Fire In The Hole xBomb slot – Gameplay and Features

The slot starts with 6 reels and 3 rows of symbols and makes use of the win-all-ways mechanic. The number of rows can expand to 6 rows, and if all rows are into play and if all positions are filled, you can get up to 46,656 ways to win.

The slot makes use of the avalanche (collapse) mechanic, where you gain a free respin following a win and where a row is added.

What’s new, though, is that you can also win the free respin (and get the additional row of symbols) with an xBomb Wild or with the Mining Feature, which I tell you more about below.

The five high-paying symbols are the typical gear symbols hat miners need to take with them: a lantern, a bag, a pair of boot, a rope and an axe. The five lows are the 9, 10, J, Q and  K.

xBomb Wild Multiplier

An xBomb Wild symbol substitutes any symbol except Bonus symbols. The xBomb Wild explodes and removes all adjacent symbols. New symbols appear, and an additional row if created for the next respin.

Collapsing Mine Feature

The Wild Mining is triggered when you have 3, 4 or 5 identical symbols next to each other, but if this does NOT get you a win (for example, when the combo starts from reel 2). In that case, the 3, 4 and 5 symbols award 1, 2 or 3 wilds, respectively and also here you get a free respin and an additional row of symbols.

How do you trigger the free spins?

You win the free spins if you spin 3, 4 or 5 Bonus Symbols, and it gets you the Lucky Wagons Spins with 2, 3 and 4 active rows.

You can also choose the faster route and buy the free spins with the Nolimit Bonus feature for 60x, 157x or 500x the original bet.

Free spins bonus round: Lucky Wagon Spins feature

The free spins remind me a bit of Relax Gaming’s Money Train and Money Train 2.

You get at least 3 free spins, and if things go your way, you see coins dropping in the holes in the 2, 3 or 4 active rows you see.

Every time a new coin drops, the number of free spins is “reset” back to 3. So the free spins only end if you fail to spin a new coin 3 consecutive times.

We have several boosters, similar to Money Train, with multipliers, collectors and dynamite sticks create new holes and more room for coins to land.

You also see a bottom row that is locked at the start. If some of these positions open, it can become very lucrative. For every single free spin, the total value of the coins on the respective reel is added. It is indeed comparable to the persistent collector of Money Train!

Payout percentage (RTP) is 96.06% to 96.96%.

The RTP is 96.06% if you play the main game.

The good news is that the RTP increases from 96.07% for the cheapest Nolimit Bonus option to a fantastic 96.96% if you use the most expensive Bonus Buy feature option.

Indeed Nolimit City tries to persuade you to go for the max! Can you resist?

Fire In The Hole xBomb slot – the variance (volatility) is extremely high

And again, we’re talking about an extremely high variance slot (10 out of 10 according to Nolimit City).

The game was released just a couple of days ago, but  I’ve already seen wins topping 10.000x!
