Hole In The Wall is an online video slot developed by IGT, and based on the television game show, Hole In The Wall. Two teams – a red team and a blue team – consisting of three team members each competed against each other.
Subject to certain rules, each team member was given the chance to try and fit through a cutout shape in a Styrofoam wall.
The wall moved slowly towards the player, and missing the hole would result in the player ending up in one of the two pools of water on either side.
Hole In The Wall is an online slot played on 5 reels and 20 paylines, and features a Replay Bonus Game, awarding free spins, as well as an interactive Bonus Game, during which, as was the case in the game show, a number of walls must be cleared in order to win a prize – in this case, multipliers.
Hole In The Wall Symbols
Hole In The Wall symbols include the blue player, the blue team’s symbol, the red player, the red team’s symbol, an arrow, a Wild symbol, the Replay scatter symbol, and the Hole In The Wall Bonus Symbol. Playing card symbols also appear on the reels.
The wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except for the scatter symbol and the bonus symbol.
The wild symbol is also the highest paying symbol – paying out at 10 000 credits for a combination of 5 in a row on an active pay line.
Practically speaking, there are two scatter symbols, as the Hole In The Wall Bonus symbol also conforms to the rules of a scatter symbol.
Replay Bonus Game
The Replay Bonus Game is triggered by landing 3 or more of the Replay scatter symbols anywhere on the reels.
One free spin is awarded for every combination of 3 Replay scatter symbols.
Hole In The Wall Bonus Game
The Hole In The Wall Bonus Game is activated by landing a combination of 3 or more of the Hole In The Wall Bonus symbols anywhere on the reels.
During the Hole In The Wall Bonus game, the player is given the choice of one of three team players, or avatars.
By making use of the arrows, one appearing on each side of the avatar, the player must now position the avatar in order for it to fit through the Hole In The Wall.
A number of walls must be cleared, and for each additional wall cleared by the player’s avatar, an additional prize is awarded, once again in the form of a bet multiplier, the top cumulative score being a X79 multiplier.
Graphics and Sound Effects
The graphics and sound effects are very reminiscent of the original game show. Avatars appear to be merely shapes, with no defining features.
This reminds strongly of the silver spandex body suits worn by competitors appearing on the television game show.
Betting Options and User Interface
The game interface is user-friendly, and the betting options highly flexible.
Minimum bet starts at 0.01 credits per payline, increasing up to 3.75 credits per payline.
Hole In The Wall can be played for fun or as real money pokies online. The online slot is available in flash mode when playing for fun, requiring no download or player registration.
