Fire in the Hole XBomb Slot Nolimit City

Fire in the Hole xBomb Slot, powered by Nolimit City, is a set on a 6x3 grid with 486 ways to win by default. However, the video slot also has the potential to open up to 6 rows and pay across 46,656 ways to win. 

At the very core of the game is its Collapsing Reels mechanic and we can’t continue before mentioning its 60,000x maximum win exposure! Considered very highly volatile, you can try this game for free at AskGamblers or in any Nolimit City Casino for real.

Get Ready to Explode

Before you can delve deeper into mine you’ll need to learn how to place your bets:

  • The Dollar button will allow you to form your total bet per spin
  • Hitting spin will set the reels in motion
  • If you get tired of spinning the reels you can use autoplay where you can select the number of rounds and other advanced features
  • Buy Bonus: If you don’t want to wait for the feature to trigger you can buy into the bonus (more details below)

Slot Features

The game is the first from Nolimit to feature their xBomb feature but is also accompanied by a string of other features to boost your chances of winning. These include Collapsing Mine, Wild Mining, Lucky Wagon Spins, xBomb Wild symbols, and Win Multipliers. 

Collapsing Mine Feature

You will begin each spin on 6 reels, 3 rows and 486 ways to win, but the Collapsing Mine can change this completely. Each time you mine a winning combination, symbols will be removed and replaced with new ones thanks to the cascading reels. This will happen until no more winning combinations are formed. 

Each time you get a winning combination, you will also benefit from extra rows on each reel as follows:

  • 3 Rows: 486 ways to win
  • 4 Rows: 4096 ways to win
  • 5 Rows: 15,625 ways to win
  • 6 Rows: 46,656 ways to win 

A new collapse can also be triggered with an xBomb Wild when there is no win, and then the Wild Mining feature is triggered. 

xBomb Wild Multiplier 

xBomb is the Wild symbol and substitutes it for all other symbols except the bonus symbol. If you land an xBomb, you will also activate the xBomb Wild Multiplier feature. The symbol itself will explode (even if there is no win), destroying its adjacent symbols (excluding any bonus symbols). You also benefit from a multiplier that increases by x1. 

Wild Mining 

You can trigger this feature during the base game when you land 3, 4, or 5 of the same symbol, horizontally, and there is no winning combination.

The triggering symbols will be removed creating Wild symbols in the middle position as follows:

  • 3 symbols award 1 Wild
  • 4 symbols award 2 Wilds
  • 5 symbols award 3 Wilds 

All other positions above the bar will explode which can also cause a new collapse. 

Lucky Wagon Spins

You will trigger this feature if you land 3, 4 or 5 Bonus symbols with 2, 3 or 4 rows open to start with. You will initially be awarded 3 spins, and every time you land a coin, it will be reset to zero. Coin values are valued as the current stake. 

You can also benefit from enhancers across the top row which can boost your chances of winning as follows:

  • Coin Values: Sets the value of the coin
  • Multipliers: Multiplies the value of all coins that appear on the reel below the enhancer
  • Dynamite: This will blow up blocked positions if available or can add value to coins 
  • Bag: Collects all coins and places them at triggering coin position
  • Chest: Collects all values in the reel area and removes occupied positions except for Dwarf and places at triggering coin position
  • Dwarf: Collects all values in the reel area and places them at the triggering coin position 
  • Collect Chests: Dynamites can activate this feature on the bottom row. When activated it will collect the values in the reel area for the corresponding column above for every spin.

This feature will end when the reel is full, or when no more spins are available. 

If you don’t want to wait for this feature to trigger manually you can use the Nolimit Buy Feature which is country-specific. If you are from an eligible country you can purchase the feature as follows:

  • 3 Bonus Symbols - 60x your stake (96.07% RTP)
  • 4 Bonus Symbols - 158x your stake (96.2% RTP)
  • 5 Bonus Symbols - 500x your stake (96.96% RTP)

Beer Time

If you win the lucrative 60,000x maximum win exposure, you will clean the mine out and your game round will be over. 


Nolimit City has gone in with extreme volatility on this one so prepare before you dive in but remember a highly volatile slot can be extremely rewarding in the long run! 

Naturally, with such a big maximum exposure, comes the chance for some decent payouts in this game. You may find that these decent wins will come more from the Lucky Wagon Spins feature though, rather than the base spins due to the enhancers. 

If you trigger 5 Scatters, you'll be laughing, but the real beauty of this game lies with the Chests mixed with a combination of other modifiers. It is also possible to trigger the 60,000x maximum when landing just 3 Scatters too. 

Is this game for the faint-hearted? Absolutely not, but it is a great game from Nolimit City and a smart one at that! If you’ve got the patience it takes, this one is definitely worth a shot.

Fire in the Hole is a 6 reel slot from Nolimit City that was released a while ago. The game has a mining theme and to be honest, I like this game because it's one of the less grim looking slots from Nolimit City.

The game itself has a few features to keep the players entertained. For example, in the base game you have 3 rows and 486 ways to win, but once you land a winning combination, the winning symbols will cascade and another row will be activated. That continues until no new wins are created, but if you activate all 6 rows, you get to play in 4096 ways. Also, when you land dynamite wild symbols, they will explode other symbols for potential big wins. I have to say, I don't really play the base game much but it's one of the better ones I've seen. I like the dynamite wilds feature and a few times the game has given me a nice balance boost of 40x-60x.

Other than that, there's of course a bonus round. As almost always with Nolimit City, the bonus rounds can be purchased- there are 3 levels for the bonus round. Ideally you want the super bonus which costs 500x and gives you all open rows. But for whichever bonus you get, triggered by 3 or more scatters, you get to play 3 respins. In the respins, on the top of the reels you'll see different symbols- a bag that collects everything on the respective reel, expander feature which expands the locked rows, multipliers and many others. To get these features, you need to land a coin on the same reel as the feature. Also, when you land a coin, the free spins will reset to 3. The bonus round is very volatile but I have to say from all Nolimit games I quite like it. One time I managed to get the Beer symbol which collects all symbols on the reels and ended up with a 2000x bet win, so winning potential is definitely there. 

Overall I quite like this game. The theme is nice and the design looks good- it isn't too dark or crossing any lines with the theme. I have to say that I'd recommend being careful with the bonus buys as the highest bonus costs 500x and considering the volatility, can return 100x so you can end up with a loss.
