Sometimes slot game developers just come up with the weirdest and wackiest themes when coming up with new ideas for titles. Ned and His Friends slot game is perhaps one that fits that category as Betsoft have really dug deep into the imagination with this one.
During our Ned and His Friends game review, we managed to find out that Ned is a guy who spends his time sitting around the house and has company from his friends. However, his friends are not humans; they are rats. Apparently, Ned wants his girlfriend to come and visit his friends, however she is unaware that they are not humans. Seriously, it’s just downright bizarre.
Nonetheless, the developers have created a hugely fun slot game and one that players can test out with this Ned and His Friends Free Play version before committing to the real-money action and rewards it can provide.
Whilst the theme might be a little original, Ned and His Friends slot game is played with an unoriginal format. Players can place bets for as little as $0.01 and up to $150 per spin on this five-reel slot that has 30 paylines available. Bettors do not have to use all 30 paylines, though, as this is just one of the aspects of the slot game that can be tailored to a player’s demands.
As with the paylines, the bet size is completely customisable but players who want to spin the reels for as much as possible can do so via one click as there is a ‘Max Bet Spin’ button available.
There are a number of symbols available on the paytable for players to try and form winning combinations with in this Ned and His Friends slot game. The low reward icons include the front door, which are then followed by a number of his rat friends. Ned is the most valuable icon on the paytable, as landing five of him in one spin will provide bettors with a reward of 500x their original bet.
Interestingly, Ned and His Friends slot game does not have a wild symbol or a multiplier. However, there are still a number of bonus features available via the use of a Scatter icon and a couple of mini games that can be triggered by various symbols on the paytable.
The ‘Singing Rats Free Spins’ round is triggered when three or more of the rat icons appear on any of the five reels and players are awarded with up to five free spins. These can be retriggered during the feature, as well.
If three or more rat tails are landed on, then a ‘Click Me’ bonus will be activated. Here, players will be taken to a new screen where they get to choose a rat to provide them with an instant reward.
The last feature of the game activated when three of the Girlfriend symbols land on the grid. If this happens, players will be taken to a new window where Ned’s girlfriend faints as she realises his friends are the rats. If players can pick the right rat to wake her up, then players will be rewarded!
RTP (return to player)
Whilst Ned and His Friends slot game is wacky and rather crazy, Betsoft have introduced a return to player (RTP) rate of 92.15%, which is a little disappointing as it is on the low side.
