Playtech has expanded its range of branded content with the roll-out of a new omni-channel slot based on the 1994 comedy hit Ace Ventura: Pet Detective starring Jim Carrey.

The five-reel slot sees players uncover missing animals, which are then collected and combined to unlock bonus rounds such as Animal Modifiers, free spins and other features.

It includes a host of characters from the original film, including the pet detective himself and a variety of loveable animal sidekicks.

A huge hit upon its release in 1994, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective grossed $107.2m at the box office and spawned a sequel, Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, in 1995.

The slot has been launched simultaneously across all desktop and mobile devices, further strengthening its drive to make content available through as many channels as possible.

It becomes the latest branded game to be released by Playtech following the launch of a slot based on the 1980s classic Top Gun, which went live last month.

Through the Playtech ONE solution, the solutions giant aims to make its content available anywhere, at any time, and on any device through a single wallet and single account.

“Ace Ventura is a fantastically colourful addition to our extensive casino portfolio, offering exciting and engaging gameplay, and is sure to be a hit with our licensees and their players,” Playtech chief operating officer Shimon Akad said.
