Ace Ventura Pet Detective, is a Jim Carrey movie, from all the way back in the simple times of 1994.
In the film Ace, played by Jim Carrey, was a private detective, specialising in animal crime. It was a comedy that never stood the test of time, but Playtech have decided to theme a slot on it, anyway.
Ace Ventura Pet Detective is a new slot by Playtech. They are based in the Isle of Man, and are one of the bigger game developers. They agree with this claim, and call themselves” The world’s largest gambling software and services supplier.” Their past titles, are to be commended for their superior graphics, and game play. In a nutshell, they make good games.
Ace Ventura Pet Detective was a playful humorous movie, and because of this Playtech have made a colourful, light-hearted slot. The Background is a light blue colour and the reels are bordered by bright crooked yellow and pink square things, with bites taken out of them. It is a really well designed slot.
The white reels do a great job offsetting the colourful interface. And the panel is again crooked, all over the place and colourful. The game has lots of animations for all the various bonus features. This improve the appearance of the game, and makes it more fluid. The Spin Button is located on the right of the panel.
How to Play
Ace Ventura Pet Detective, has 243 way to win, in the Base Game. The player spins the reels with the Spin Button, found in the panel. Bets can be adjusted whenever the reels are not in motion. They are adjusted with the Plus and Minus Buttons in the value box.
The game has a minimum coin value of £.01 and a maximum coin value of £.40. The value box on the other side of the panel, to the betting options, displays the monetary value of the payers bet.

All of these features are triggered at random and they ensure that the playing will not go through a losing streak. This will keep the player interested in the game, it is an easy game to play for hours on end.
The player’s win will equal the bet times the values shown in the coin table. The highest value symbol in the pay table is the Ace Ventura Badge Symbol, which has a five in a row coin value of 200.
