Here We Go Again, Folks!



My earlier review from earlier today needs to be updated. I had to delete this app from my iPhone after having played many games today. It is quite apparent that the dice rolls in this app are rigged just like they are in all the other Backgammon apps. The developers can point to the random number generator website all they want — the point is that the numbers are NOT random! As another reviewer pointed out in his or her review, why aren’t there ever any doubles rolled when the games start? If the numbers truly were random, the opening rolls would feature doubles at least 10% of the time if not more. But it never happens!

Anyway, it’s a shame that these apps are all rigged. Also, it seems that many of the players in the online chat are bots or something like that. The app unfortunately has a “scammy” feel to it that became more apparent after playing with it for a few hours earlier today.


February 2018:

After trying many other backgammon games in the store, I finally settled on this one. I have only been playing for a day or so, but this is the BEST backgammon game out there by far! I like how you can play for gold coins. The chat feature is also nice. You can also send messages back-and-forth with the friends that you make in the game. This is awesome! And, to address everybody’s concern, the dice rolls seem to be very fair and honest unlike most other backgammon apps.


Crappy dice algorithm.

Richard k FL

Nice board and concept but very poor and unrealistic dice algorithm. Been playing 40 years on real boards with real players. This is nothing like the fair rolls of real dice. So don’t realistic odds. Not a game to invest money in. Over the last 3 dozen or so games I’ve been ahead during the game only to have opponents roll multiple doubles at the end, or I bump and they get out in one roll and then roll doubles. Insincere developers as well. The say the dice rolls are fair. Read the comments now and understand what all the negative ones are about. Rate 1-5 because nice graphics. Ps: About 10 times I’ve been winning even with their bs and guess what? The game times out and I lose anyway. Funny. Good game for laughs and if life hasn’t thrown you your share of disadvantage then this is a game that will, at least for me. :)

Developer Response

Dear player, there are several ways you can test accuracy of dice in our app for yourself:

1) You can check the average long term dice roll statistics in Statistics -> Dice both for yourself and your opponents. This shows the percentages of average dice rolls that comply to mathematical expectancy.

2) In the latest update, after each game you can check a ""seed"" number in the last game statistics. Click on the question mark near this seed and you will be taken to our website where you can check that Mersenne Twister Random Number Generator truly generates this sequence of dice rolls from this particular seed, that way confirming that the dice are truly generated from Mersenne Twister RNG and not manipulated.

3) In main chat you can enter the command .dices, you will see total roll count on server since restart and percentage of doubles rolled. You can see for yourself this complies with mathematical expectancy.

4) The Mersenne Twister Random Number Generator is open source. Everyone can download it and take a look. Please download it here:

Please use these options to confirm that the dice are indeed fairly generated. Luck can differ from game to game, that is what randomness is all about!

It lags, freezes, disconnects and you lose coins with no refund

Interface is cool but Unfortunately the support team fails to solve the server issue. It started since December2017 and till now the app has server issues. It lags, disconnects, freezes...
Spend some money and hire a real tech guys to take care of it and with that you will respect to yourselves and also your customers. The server issue is not a new thing last year also in different time frames. they had technical difficulties, but apparently this time they completely gave up and it seems they don't care.
It couldn’t be uglier than this that they force you lose coins for their poor service and dont even answer the players complains, like all dead, not even a single 1 line reply.
Other backgammon apps are also scam. They are all the same
Its like selling a beautiful car with a broken Engine and there will be idiots that still pay them to buy that car. Fix the server problem or close this thing.

And Last words to Dear Developer,
It would be more polite to start your sentences with a respectful greetings.
