Jim Carrey is one of the best comedians of our times. He had some memorable roles in the past – but that of Ace Ventura, the infamous (but excellent) pet detective is perhaps one of the most memorable ones. And Israeli casino software developer Playtech has recently decided to reach back to those times, and turn his adventures into a new, flashy casino slot machine. And they have done quite a job with it.
Ace Ventura Pet Detective is a five reel, three row video slot machine with 243 ways to win. It has nice graphics (although it’s a bit thin when it comes to animations) and a playful, colorful theme to match the atmosphere of the movies. The reels are filled with symbols related to the detective’s adventures – like Ace wearing a tutu and a football, or having asparagus hang from his mouth, among others. The game comes with a standard Wild symbol to substitute for anything except scatters and animal modifiers – which make the game interesting in the first place.
Animal modifiers can be collected in the main game. These modifiers will be put to good use during the free spins, triggered by three Rhino Bonus symbols landing on reels 1, 3 and 5. The modifiers collected during the base game will be combined during the free spins, rewarding players with extra benefits.
– the “Shark” modifier will add more free games to the total
– the “Elephant” modifier will expand the reel set to four rows
– the “Gorilla” modifier will upgrade some symbols on the reels
– the “Bat” (Shikaka!) modifier adds random wilds to the reels
– the “Pigeon” modifier will turn Reel 3 into a wild reel, and add modifiers to the total
– the “Dolphin” modifier will add a mystery multiplier to the game
The game also comes with randomly triggered features in the base game, like Jungle Friends, when animals will put extra wilds on the reels, Sneaky Walk, when Ace leaves stacked wilds on the reels, or Loser, re-spinning any losing spin and increasing multipliers until a winning spin happens.
Ace Ventura Pet Detective is among the most feature-rich slot machines released in 2014. Find it in any Playtech-powered online casino – you won’t regret it!
