BetSoft Gaming’s Ned and His Friends slot is one of the developer’s cheerier slots. It is based on a character called – you guessed it – Ned. What’s bizarre about this game is that “his friends” refer to an infestation of rats, which Ned doesn’t seem to mind one little bit. No other slot has a theme as original as this. Aside from its theme, though, everything about this Betsoft Gaming developed slot is pretty standard for this developer.
Ned and His Friends offers up the usual 5-reel, 30-line setup for a BetSoft Gaming developed slot, with players looking at coin denominations which stem from 2p up to £2 in total. You can wager numerous coins per line, and that will see your wager rise or fall from a base of 2p per line per spin, up to £150 per spin in all. Again, there is nothing new about this wagering range. We’ve seen it before in many other BetSoft Gaming slots.
BetSoft Gaming typically makes many of their slots carry a non-progressive jackpot worth 500 coins. That is the case in the Ned and His Friends slot, too. This is a tad smaller than we might like to see, especially since the wagering range is pretty harsh in this simple game.
Players are instantly going to be disappointed that there is no wild symbol in this slot. There are several bonus icons, but the lack of a wild is pretty damning. Again, we shouldn’t act too surprised, since BetSoft Gaming does this frequently.
The main feature you can trigger is a free spins bonus round. It is activated when a player lands 3 or more of the singing rat icons anywhere on the reels. Players will win between 5 and 15 free spins (depending on how many scatters they located), and the feature can be retriggered.
Players will also find that there is a click me bonus game in this slot. By landing 3 of the rat hole symbols on the reels, players will trigger it. They can then select one of the rat tails on the screen to pocket an instant win cash prize.
Ratty Rat Doo Wop
Should 3 or more girlfriend symbols appear on the reels of this game, the Ratty Rat Doo Wop bonus will be triggered. This bonus game sees Ned’s missus (who hates rats) faint. You must choose rats to sing her a song. The song (apparently) wakes her up from her slumber, and awards you an instant cash prize along the way.
Nobody can deny that Ned and His Friends is a totally original slot machine game when it comes to theme. However, from a gameplay perspective, it’s a bit naff. The special features are basic and we’ve seen them all before, the wagering range isn’t very flexible, and we’re not huge fans of the petite jackpot, either. BetSoft Gaming has developed better slots, although admittedly, they don’t quite have themes as unique as this one.
