Ace Ventura Pet Detective from Playtech: Slot Review - "well, Lois, I'm not quite ready for a relationship yet..."
It is a five-reel, 243 'all ways pays' online slot from Playtech. The movie was stuffed full of memorable taglines and catchphrases. You can relive them all here on Ace Ventura Pet Detective, the slots game.
Ace Ventura Pet Detective from Playtech uses the original movie (there was a single sequel in 1995) as its theme. The symbols used are the playing card values jack to ace, plus several scenes of Ace behaving in the over-the-top manner that made Carrey famous. All possible bet lines - all 243 of them - are in play at all times, and whatever you select as your coin value is multiplied as your wager upon each spin.
In this slot there are three bonus features that are triggered randomly during normal play:
Jungle Friends: Ace summons his jungle friends to give you extra wilds
Sneaky Walk: Ace sneaks across the reels to add stacks of wilds
Loser: Ace respins a losing spin, increasing a multiplier until you win
Theme, Graphics and Sound
“Alllllllllrighty then!!” - this is probably one of our favourite phrases from the movie, and it can be heard after most payline wins. The symbols are all characters (animals included!!) from the hit movie and the soundtrack is from the original film too.

Win lines, Payouts and Jackpots
Payouts in normal play start at 5x for any three identical playing card symbols, and max out at 200x for five 'Ace Ventura Pet Detective' police badges.
A pic of Ace holding a business card which states 'Ace Ventura Wild' is the wild symbol in this game. It substitutes for all other symbols aside from the scatter symbols and the animal modifier symbols.
The 'backside of a rhino' bonus symbol acts as the scatter symbol. If you land this symbol on reels one, three and five during your game, you are awarded seven free games with animal modifier bonuses.
You collect animal modifier symbols during the game, and the last two you collect become active during your free games. There are six possible animal modifier symbols.
During normal play you may also find the special 'key' symbol. If you do manage to land a key, you unlock an extra 'animal modifier' so that you enter free spins with three modifiers as opposed to the usual two.
