What is this mobile slot about?

Alrighty then! This Ace Ventura Pet Detective mobile slot brings a whole range of chaos and bonus features, with just a hint of 90s nostalgia.

It seems odd to us that years after the movies came out, we suddenly get an Ace Venture slot that’s a few decades too late.

Still, that’s not to b said that this Playtech game doesn’t have plenty of interesting features that make it wonderfully unique. And we mean plenty, with dozens of possible combinations, it’s hard to get bored.

3 random bonuses

Showcasing the random comedic nature of the films, this Ace Ventura Pet detective slot game has 3 instant bonuses that can happen at any time. And we’re not talking about the free spins.

From extra wild symbols, to wild reels, to increasing multipliers till you win, we’ve rarely hit one of these slot features without it being exciting – if not always satisfying.

These don’t show up quite as often as they do in the Life of Brian slot, but that’s because these are only the first course.

The Ace Ventura slot free spins

These are the main course. Mostly because they can change pretty much every time you play, and you never quite know what you are going to get.

Which is a little bit of a difficult one to review, as you can play for hours and still not experience every possible free spin combination, thanks to the point that sometimes you only get 2 features, other times you get 3 bonus features.

The more you can get, the better – but as these free spins are easy to trigger, you generally get free spins with only 2 of the 6 possible bonuses.

So, to be honest, we don’t know which combination is the best, because there’s simply too many. But, the more you can get, the better. We got as much as 100 times our bet.

Mostly, you’ll be happy with about 20 times, but they show up so often, you won’t mind too much.

This Ace Ventura video slot is as random and chaotic as you would expect from the famous pet detective, but much like the films, after a few times, you might find yourself moving on to some entertainment with a little more bite like Sinbad’s Golden Voyage.

In-game bonus features

Wild Symbol: The Ace Ventura Pet Detective slot logo is wild and replaces all other symbols except the scatter and the animal bonus symbols.

Jungle Friends Bonus: After any spin, Ace Ventura will summon all and any of his jungle friends and animals will show up on the reels, dropping extra wild symbols.

Sneaky Walk bonus: After any spin Ace can sneak across the reels and add a wild stack on any reel. Probably the most rewarding of the random features.

Loser Bonus: After any losing spin, Ace will show up and give you free re-spins with multipliers that increase if you don't win anything. That said, it rarely spins for more than one or two spins.

Free Games Bonus: The rhino giving birth to Ace (as per the Ace Ventura When Nature Calls film) is the scatter symbols. Get 3 anywhere on the reels and you'll trigger the free spins.

What you trigger depends on what animals you collected during the base game. You always start with 2 animals in the top left hand corner, and when one of the animal symbols land on reel 5, one of those will be replaced.

Unless it's an animal you have already collected, you get an instant cash prize. If the animal has a key, you unlock a third spot in the top left hand corner.

When you trigger the free spins, whatever animals you have in that spot, are the features you'll play. These can be anything from:

  • Extra free games: We've gotten as few as 5 to as many as 25 extra free spins added.
  • Expanded reels: Instead of 5x3 reels, you get 5 reels by 4 rows, giving you 1024 ways to win instead of 243.
  • Symbol upgrade: One of the symbols will be randomly picked to change into the highest paying symbol on the board.
  • Random wild symbol: You'll get anything from 1 to 5 extra wilds anywhere on screen on every spin.
  • Wild Multiplier on reel 3: Whenever a wild lands on reel 3, that wild comes with a multiplier, from 2x to 7x.
  • Mystery win multiplier: You'll be given a random multiplier from 2x to 7x, on all wins during the free spins.

Closing thoughts

This Ace Venture mobile slot has a whole load of features going for it, so many in fact you'll be hard pressed to play every possible free spin combination or catch every random bonus.

Which means that sometimes when you play this Playtech slot, you'll love it because you catch just the right features. And other times you'll wonder why you even played the game in the first place.

It's very unpredictable, so hard to write a decent mobile slot game review, but if you're willing to take a chance on a chaotic slot machine this is it.

After all, the Pet Detective was anything but predictable, so why should this be any different.
