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.
