How to play Ace Ventura: Pet Detective video slot
To control the slot, a console with keys and windows is provided:
the “-” and “+” controls in the Coin Value - set the face value of the coin (special game currency) from 0.01 to 2.50 of demo credits. The size of the total bet per spin depends on the value of the coin - from 0.40 to 100 demo credits;
Info - opens a table with combination coefficients, game rules, special character functions;
Spin - spins the reels. The same button allows you to quickly stop the spin;
Auto Spins - opens a special window where the player is invited to choose from 10 to 99 autorotations. Also, in this window, there is a key Until Feature. If you launch autospins with it, the reels will spin until the bonus option falls out;
Stop Auto Spins - the key appears on the field after starting autospins. Clicking on it stops independent rotation;
Turbo On / Mode - speeds up or slows down the speed of spins;
Total Bet - shows the size of the current bet;
Win - displays the winnings obtained after the usual rotation of the reels, a round with free spins or a bonus option;
Ways - shows the number of ways for the formation of prize sequences - 243. In an ordinary game, this indicator is stable.
After one spin, a prize combination of 3, 4, 5 identical symbols may fall on the field. When calculating the payoff for the sequence, the bet per line and the combination coefficient are multiplied. Prizes for several sequences dropped out at the same time are summed up and credited to the player's balance.
Slot symbols of the Ace Ventura Slot
Three types of symbols rotate on the reels of the Ace Ventura: Pet Detective slot machine:
ordinary pictures that create prize combinations;
bonus symbols with advanced features;
special characters Animal Modifiers. They spin only on the fifth reel during regular spins. The dropped symbols are collected in a special collection, and then perform special functions during free spins.
The list of standard pictures includes:
Agent Ace Ventura's identity card gives multipliers of 50, 150, 200 in a sequence of 3, 4, 5 pictures;
the main character with a monkey - 20, 80, 150;
Ace Ventura with a plant in the mouth - 15, 50, 120;
cars with the main character - 10, 40, 100;
playing cards “A” and “K” - 5, 20, 60;
“Q” and “J” are 5, 10, 40.
Wild in the form of a portrait with the main character and the corresponding inscription - replaces any pictures except Scatter and Animal Modifiers characters;
Scatter in the form of a rhino with the inscription Bonus - rotates only on the first, third and fifth reels. If three such symbols stop on the field, free spins with additional features will be turned on.
Animal Modifiers - symbols in the form of signs on the search for missing animals that rotate only on the fifth reel. All drawn Animal Modifier symbols are collected in a special combination. The last two such icons that hit the field are displayed in the left corner above the reels. During free spins, they will perform special functions. If the Animal Modifier symbol appears on the reels, which is already in the player’s collection, a prize is awarded.
Free spins in the Ace Ventura Online Slot
After the simultaneous appearance on the first, third and fifth reels of the Scatter slot symbols in the form of a rhinoceros with the inscription Bonus, a series of seven free spins is launched. During this round, only two Animal Modifiers symbols from the player’s collection are valid. They do not drop out on the playing field but are displayed in the upper left side of the machine.
Features of Animal Modifiers symbols during free spins:
Shark on a red background - gives additional free spins;
an elephant on a lilac background - increases the number of ways to form prize combinations - 1024;
gorilla - randomly determines a symbol that automatically turns into a more winning one in a round with free spins;
dolphin - gives a random factor - x2, x3, x4, x5, x7 or x10;
bat - places additional Wild symbols on any positions of the playing field;
the pigeon multiplies the prize for any combination with the Wild symbol 3, 5, 7 or 10 times.
After completing the free spins, the pair of Animal Symbol Modifiers, which is displayed above the reels, changes randomly.
Other features of the free spins round:
Spins start automatically;
all demo credits are kept on the balance (you won’t lose any money during free spins);
when winning, the bet that was set before the start of the prize round is taken into account;
during free spins, Animal Modifier symbols do not fall on the field. In addition, there is no Scatter on the reels during the round, so it is impossible to launch free spins twice in a row.
Bonus Features of the Ace Ventura Online Slot
There are three special options on the Ace Ventura Pet Detective slot machine that are triggered randomly during regular spins:
Jungle Friends - the main character adds additional Wild symbols to random cells of the playing field. Thus, the likelihood of collecting a highly paid combination increase;
Loser - after any losing spin, a respin with the x2 multiplier may start. If, after repeated rotation, the combination does not fall on the field, the size of the multiplier increases;
Sneaky Walk - one or several reels are completely filled with "wild" symbols.
The Ace Ventura Pet Detective slot machine is not only simple spins but also an abundance of bonus features and special characters. Good chances of getting large payouts are given during free spins. In this round, 2 out of 6 Animal Modifier symbols work, which are responsible for activating special options (additional Wild symbols, free spins or multipliers).
