Fire in the Hole Review
It's time to journey deep into the underground mines hidden away from sunlight to try to find the biggest gold. Sadly, you're gonna need something bigger to bust through but Nolimit City have you covered. Fire in the Hole is a Wild West slot that takes place within the mines.
The goal of the slot is to blow up as much as possible to uncover the hidden gold. Of course, you do this through the Collapsing Mine, Lucky Wagon Spins and xBomb Wild Multiplier. Lucky players will be able to win up to 60,000x their stake!
As you open up the slot, you'll notice that you are situated at the bottom of the mine. This is actually just a static image with various objects you'd expect to find in a mine such as dim lights and shovels. It's a little lifeless and disappointing that it's a still image which does make the slot look a bit generic at times.
The reels are centred in the middle of the screen with various objects found in mines such as pickaxes and boots as well - nothing special but what you'd expect.
In terms of music, there is a drumbeat in the background that sounds like The Great Escape paired with explosions and bombs throughout spins. It surprisingly fits in well with the aesthetic and isn't too grating on the ears.
The core of this slot is straightforward but the addition of the xBomb Wild and the Collapsing Mine do enhance the gameplay. Through these features, you can unlock up to 46,656 ways to win! Like in most Nolimit City slots, you can find the spin and autospin button to the right of the reels with the left side being reserved for everything else you could need.
Sadly, Nolimit City has a recurring issue of low RTP due to the base game of this slot having an RTP of 94.11% which is due to not having the Feature Buy in the slot. This is way below the average and not at all accepted - especially for a high volatility slot. The maximum payout is 60,000x your stake which is a decent amount that can be reached through the Collapsing Mine and the multipliers.
Fire in the Hole is entertaining enough to provide some fun wins and a good time - but ultimately it isn't anything spectacular. The maximum win is brilliant at 60,000x your stake but it's plagued by the pathetic low RTP of 94.11%. It's worth trying for the features and the mechanics, but that's about it. If you want a truly spectacular Wild West slot, then look no further than Dead or Alive 2.
