Fun but a Total Waste of Time if You’re Serious about Backgammon

If you are an experienced backgammon player, this game is a total waste of your time. Aside from the obvious bogus “lures” like “double your winnings or nothing”- and - a multitude of ways that the game tries to get you to purchase coins....the dice are totally rigged against the pre-determined player that’s going to lose and the number of repeat doubles that can occur is laughable. It is difficult to believe that any real skill enters into this and frankly if you look at some people’s (I assume they’re all human.) level & coins, but lackluster win rate, one has to seriously wonder.

However the most annoying aspect of this game is when you’ve built up your coin count to a good level and all of a sudden the board scrolls to the higher end games with the absolute certainty that it’s going to freeze on and initiate a game that you absolutely do not want to play. Of course once the room has been “chosen”, there’s no way to back out! This is infuriating! I’ve actually won a lot of those games, but if not, you’re forced to build up your stash from scratch.

Having said all of this, the game is fun to play to the point of addiction and it’s a hoot to play with people from all over the world - but I’m tired off having to “rebuild” when it’s through no fault of my own or my ability.

Fun, addictive, but not fair sometimes

I really enjoy playing backgammon but this game sometimes cheats you and the developers really do not care.

For example, I understand the chance of dice rolls, but what are the odds that when you are crushing your opponent that they will roll double six twice, double 5 twice and then double 4 twice? Not realistic. This usually happens with the opponent going offline, then coming back online just in time to have a perfect roll. In this case I think the player has a way to cheat. Other times, the player shows they have 100 coins, max bid of 100, but the games allows them to double, win and get 200 coins. If you win, you only get 100 coins. Other times it has let players play and double with no coins at all. I have won some of these games and got nothing, but when they win, they get 100 to 200 coins. Also they will show a max bet of 100, lose, then want to play again...when I have agreed to play again to see what happens, it again shows max bet of 100 coins.

Too Many Doubles

It is a good Backgammon game. But with most of the players having less than 50% wins what does that tell you? I have played Backgammon for years and the game constantly gives your opponent way many more sets of doubles than they would get in real life. It makes you very angry that you wasted your time playing one game after another and lose lose lose. I’ve had many games where your opponent has got several sets of doubles and you get none. What a waste of your valuable time. Complaints about it go unheeded. I would not spend a dime on this game when they won’t fix the problems and not waste your time playing it.
