Look and Feel
The Ace Ventura Pet Detective slot includes superb cartoonlike graphics and animations that include many of the memorable, zany poses from Ace Ventura’s movie character.
Playtech has also tried to bring in as much as possible from the original movie by adding some of the funny moments from the movie.
The lower paying symbols are coloured dots with J, K, Q and A on them whereas the higher paying symbols are all pictures of Ace during some of the famous scenes of the comedy film.
Well done Playtech, there is something so special about playing a slot themed around a classic movie you love. It brings forth a nostalgic feeling.
Sound and Score
The slot features some of the best catchphrases made famous by hilarious actor Jim Carrey in the original movie. The overall soundtrack is action filled and fits well with the up to no good pet detective’s persona. You’ll feel like you’ve take a step back and got lost inside of the original movie.
The rest of the sounds are generic and not really something worth raving about but the fantastic backing track and the catchphrases definitely make up for that.
Bonus features and Gameplay
The Wild symbol of this slot is the Ace Ventura Pet Detective slot logo. The wild replaces all other symbols except for the scatter and the animal bonus symbols.
Jungle Friends Bonus:
During this bonus Ace Ventura will show up after any spin and summon all of his jungle friends and animals to take over your reels. As they do this they will be dropping extra wild symbols on your reels leaving you with messy reels of rewards.
Sneaky Walk bonus:
After any random spin Ace will sneak across your reels and add a stack of wilds on any reel. He might even spoil you with two or three stacked reels. This has to be one of the most rewarding feature among the in-reel bonuses.
After any random losing spin Ace will appear and reward you with free re-spins and multipliers. The multiplier increases on each losing spin. This feature mostly lasts for one or two spins.
Free Games Bonus:
The scatter symbol is a rhino giving birth to Ace based on the film Ace Ventura When Nature Calls. If you land 3 of these scatter symbols anywhere on the reels you will trigger free spins.
What you trigger depends on the animals you managed to collect during the base game. You’ll start with 2 animals at the top left hand corner and when one of the animal symbols land on reel 5 the other one will be replaced.
If you haven’t already collected this animal then you will score an instant cash prize. When the animal has a key you can unlock a third sport in the top left hand corner.
When you trigger the free spins, the animals in your top left corner will be the features you play. They can be any of the following:
Extra free games:
You can score anything from 5 to 25 extra free spins.
Instead of the normal 5×3 reels you’ll get 5×4 rows which will give you a massive 1024 ways to win.
One of the symbols will randomly be selected and changed into the highest paying symbol on your board.
Random wild symbol:
You’ll be rewarded with between 1 and 5 extra wilds anywhere on the reels on every spin.
Wild Multiplier on reel 3:
If a wild symbol lands on reel 3 the wild will come with a multiplier that ranges from 2x to 7x.
Mystery win multiplier:
With this feature you’ll be rewarded with a random multiplier from 2x to 7x on each win during your free spins round.
Is it worth playing?
Definitely. This slot is fantastic and it captures the essence of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective perfectly. Although it might seem a little bit too late it was definitely worth the wait. This slot is filled with rewards and even if you feel like a LOSER you’ll still be rewarded.
