Ned And His Friends have five reels with three rows and up to thirty paylines should players wish to play with more active paylines.
The gameplay is set against spinning reels on a large piece of shelved furniture in Ned’s home whilst Ned himself reclines in a red armchair in the bottom left-hand corner.
Ned is your mediocre, ordinary man who lounges around in his small apartment passing his solitary time with his friends. The only caveat is that Ned's friends are more unusual and on the smaller side. Yes, Ned's friends are rats. The story continues in that Ned wants his girlfriend to visit both him and his little friends, yet she is unaware that his "friends" are not of the human kind.
Ned quietly sits on his sofa in the corner of his flat in front of an enormous television screen which acts as the video slot's reels. Ned firmly clasps the remote in hand and displays some over the top celebrations whenever players strike a winning combination. Plus, the cute little rodent friends rise up in chorus singing a catchy tune when players punch the spin button.

The Singing Rats Free Spins are activated when players land three or more of the singing rats icons anywhere on enabled paylines. Players instantly receive between five & fifteen free spins for doing so. When the turns get underway, the rats start singing in an irritating and horrendously squeaky, barbershop quartet style that makes players wish the round will end. The spins and singing all continue until they run out.

Players can trigger the Rat Tail Click Me by landing three or more of the rat hole icons all they need to do is click one of the rat tails jabbing out of the hole for a cash reward.
