It was a slow start to the match, but after 15 minutes of little action Hull striker Chuba Akpom spurned three chances in as many minutes before Bolton wasted an opportunity of their own.
That was Bolton's only real moment of note in the opening period as Akpom headed wide and Robert Snodgrass clipped the crossbar with Hull's two other chances before the break.
The second period was much more open than the first, with both sides having efforts cleared off the line by defenders before Akpom rattled the bar with a fierce attempt.
The remainder of the match went by with little goalmouth action as Bolton defended stoutly to give the supporters something to cheer in their final home game of the season.
Hull miss out on the chance to all but secure fourth place for the playoffs, but they will have another chance to do that next week.
