Where to play?
Powered by Playtech, Ace Ventura video slot is a 243 ways to win game with 5 reels and offers a non-progressive jackpot of 200 coins. The slots is based on the popular 1994 Ace Ventura film with funny man Jim Carrey in the lead.
Although it’s a golden oldie it’s filled with slapstick toilet humour and in my opinion one of the funnier Jim Carrey movies. During the base game there’s three wacky-reel features that can be re-triggered randomly boosting wins.
The slots introduces a bunch of wild substitutions, multipliers with re-spins, stacked wilds, a free spins feature and mystery win multipliers. As always the star of the show is the free spins mode that’s replete with ‘Animal Modifiers’. All rightie then let’s get going!
Ace Ventura is a low variance slots that becomes more volatile if you increase your average stake per spin. The slots offers a high return to player (RTP) percentage of 96.5% which increases once the free spins feature is triggered. Symbols that appear on the reels are Jim Carrey, wilds, Rhino, bat, pigeon, dolphin, pigeon and the usual cards 10 to Ace.
The minimum bet per spin is 40 pence up to £16, it leans more towards the low variance and the ideal game for low-staked players.
Base game play benefits from 3 In-Reel features which can be triggered randomly. The first feature is the ‘Jungle Friends‘, here our pet detective summons them to give you a wild on every spin.
The second feature is known as the ‘Sneaky Walk’, extra wilds are doled out when Ace pops up on the reels. By the way I still see the dude’s funny walk in my mind’s eye which still gives me a chuckle.
Then there’s the ‘Loser’ feature which is the last one of the lot, a free spins feature with a 2x multiplier is initiated by Ace. If you don’t hit a winning spin you’ll get a re-spin with a win multiplier of 1+ to 3+.
Free Spins And Animal Modifiers
The free spins feature offers the biggest cash payout. It’s triggered when the ‘Rhino Bonus’ symbol appears on reels 1, 3 and 5, initially it awards 7 free spins along with Animal Modifiers. The Animal Modifiers are collected during the main game and carried over to the free spins boosting wins-keep an eye on the top-left corner of your screen. Every time an Animal Modifier appears you’ll receive a cash prize and extra free spins.
There are 6 Animal Modifiers:
- Red Shark Animal Modifier: A random number of extra free spins will be doled out, I won 5 extra free spins here making it 20 free spins in total.
- Pink Elephant Modifier: The number of paylines expand to 1024 ways to win.
- Yellow Bat Animal Modifier: After every free spin wild symbols are slotted into random positions.
- Orange Pigeon Modifier: Any wild symbol that lands on the middle reel (reel 3) will receive a random win multiplier.
- Blue Dolphin: Offers the best rewards since it comes with a mystery win multiplier at the start of the free spins.
To say the least Ace Ventura Pet Detective slots offers loads of fun and sprinkled with a nice amount of bonus games that keeps the bankroll ticking over. Let’s face it it won make you rich but you can still win a pretty penny playing it. I’ve heard of wins where players won more than 100x their stake when Ace summoned loads of wilds during the Jungle Friends feature.
The free spins mode is the place to be that’s if you’re fortunate enough to trigger it, try and combine the Blue Dolphin, Red Shark and Bat Animal Modifiers with. The biggest win I had here was 20x my stake (£8) at an average bet of 40 pence per spin.
