Ace Ventura Pet Detective
In the world of whacky games like the Wild Antics slot and Babushkas, Ace Ventura Pet Detective has a score a rip-roaring top number for its pure feel-good fun. If you’ve never seen the famed movie starring Jim Carey this is a picture all about a crazy character called Ace Ventura who helps find lost animals and helps wild animals too- he’s one hilariously kooky guy- and that’s an understatement! Hey, he could even sort the kangaroo out on the Redroo slot and that’s not an easy assignment.
The Ace Ventura slot is a game that is out to prove a point with all the fun it’s cooked up; especially in its free games mode. The idea of the game is that you’re helping the crackerjack Ace to solve his latest animal crime case.
The soundtrack feels like a samba party combined with the occasional one-liners from the film, delivered by our unusual private dick Ace Ventura- it’s a real cracker!
The high value icons of the game are Ace Ventura’s golden badge, Ace himself with a chimp sidekick, Ace with a mouth full of asparagus- of course, Ace wearing a fetching pink tutu with an American football, and Ace in two different cars. The lower value icons are the A to J of the card deck.
The Wild is Ace gleefully showing his detective golden shield, this substitutes for all icons except the Scatter and the Animal Modifiers.
There is also a Bonus icon, a rhino with a pair of legs sticking out of its bottom! 3 of these deliver a powerful punch of unlocking the free spins mode- more of this later.
Ace Ventura Pet Detective is a 3 row, 5 reels, 243 ways to win slot, quite a few more combos than say the Golden Mane slot with its 10 pay-lines.
For those of you who like your game play up-tempo, there’s even a Turbo mode to speed up proceedings – as if this crazy game won’t have your head spinning and a smile on your face already!
So what can this slot offer in its base mode? This game comes with some fun that can be randomly triggered and when it does Ace pops up on the reels with his whacky facial expressions and the different features he has gifted to the player. The special modes are Jungle Friends, Sneaky Walk and Loser.
Here Jungle Friends has Ace getting his jungle pals involved in turning those reels Wild- making more wins- that’s something to get stoked about.
Sneaky Walk gives Ace the chance to get silly and creep across the reels turning symbols into stacking Wilds as he goes.
This is a funny and handy addition, the Loser feature brings Ace just when you need him most- on a losing combo, he can re-spin your go and what’s more, he can up your multiplier until you make a win- outstanding!
Let the free spins roll!
When you land three of the Bonus symbols on reels 1, 3 and 5 you trigger the free games mode, and this alone gives you 7 free spins. In addition to this there are 2 animal modifiers or animal cards up for grabs- there are 6 different wild animals, each bringing a different gift. You can collect up to 3 of these creatures on reel 5 during the base game and they include:
· A bat which adds wilds to the reels
· The pigeon brings a friendly little Wild multiplier to reel 3
· That happy mammal the dolphin brings surprise multipliers to the party so you can up those winnings
· The big boy of the ocean, the shark, awards free spins
· The elephant is a massive plus bringing an entire extra row to up the game’s winning combos
· And finally the gorilla which puts you in control of which symbol is the most valuable- now that’s a rip-roaring wild!
If you like your slot to deliver fun and giggles by the spade-full then Ace Ventura Pet Detective slot should be added to your to do list. This game is such a good laugh and packed some juicy extras that I’ll be back to let the good times roll again soon.
