Ace Ventura Pet Detective is a five reel, 243 ‘all ways pays’ movie themed video slot created by Playtech. This casino slot game is an adaptation of the famous 1994 movie, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, starring Jim Carrey. In the movie Jim Carrey plays Ace- a pet detective who is called upon to investigate the disappearance of Snowflake, a dolphin. But, Snowflake is not just an ordinary dolphin; he is Miami Dolphins’ official mascot and Ace has two weeks to solve the mystery behind his disappearance before the Dolphins play in the 1994 Super bowl. That’s the story in the Ace Venture slot game as well!

Love him or hate him, Jim Carrey sure knows how to put up a good show. And in Ace Ventura Pet Detective (the movie and the game), he does just that!

The payouts are also decent.
