Ace Ventura is a video slot that has five reels and 243 pay-lines powered by Playtech software provider. This slot is inspired by the iconic, rip-roaring, comedic movie entitled Ace Ventura Pet Detective. The plot follows Jim Carrey’s character who is looking into the case of a missing dolphin.
Progressive Jackpot: No
The year was 1995 and it was then when Jim Carrey broke out for his star turn when he played the lead role in an extraordinary movie called Ace Venture: Pet Detective. The eponymous character investigates a strange case of a missing dolphin and this is the backdrop of an online video slot of the same name that is developed by Playtech.
Ace Venture: Pet Detective is a five-reel slot that has three rows and 243 ways to win. Those reels beam of a vibrant medley of colors on a plain blue backdrop and there’s also some cheerful background music to keep things going.
However, before you can go on your wild goose (or in this case, dolphin) chase, you are advised to set your bets. With "Coin Value," you will regulate coins size, which ranges from 0.01 to 0.40. "Auto Spins" option is there to spin the reels automatically without interruption for a chosen number of times, and "Spin" will set the reels in motion once, after you choose your betting range. "Turbo Mode" will speed up the reels.
As mentioned, this slot game comes from the weird and zany world of Carrey, who played the role to comedic perfection. You’ll come across some of the more recognizable scenes from the film on your reels, as well as plenty of other goodies.
The great news is that Ace Ventura comes with Playtech’s superb 243 ways to win technology, so each spin gives punters a fair amount of opportunities to win. Once you acquaint yourself with the paytable, you will soon be cheering on the reels to deliver the goods.
The game is of the familiar five-reel design, although this proven format is brought to life by the vibrant colorway and hilarious graphics that help this game stand out.
Indeed, there are a number of wacky animations that come to life when specific features are triggered. The soundtrack is pleasant enough and actually adds to the experience rather than steer far from it, which at times be the case with other titles. The occasional stabs of dialogue taken straight from the movie will please players even more.
When all is said and done, it really doesn’t matter whether you have seen the movie or not. There is a lot to like in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
The six high-value symbols are all different views of Ace – on a marshal’s badge, on a motorbike with a monkey, with a mouth full of asparagus, with a pink ruff, in a Land Rover, and in a cabriolet. The lower-values are the usual J, Q, K and A.
The wild symbol is Ace wielding his business card and it will substitute for all others except the bonus symbol and the animal modifier cards. The bonus is marked by a Rhinoceros with a pair of legs sticking out of its backside.
