  • Rigged game Mar 20, 2019

    By Laspinit
    I have played this game for sometime. I would buy the .99 cent packs and watch others cheat me out of the coins . If you sit on the timer a few seconds you can almost always roll a double or exactly what you need to send the opponent packing back to home . I deleted this rigged game . People cheating once they figure out the timer . And if you write the developer they will tell you there is no way this can happen . If your smart and want to keep your blood pressure down and your sanity sane then run from this game . And if your one of the people who loves to cheat I hope a cheater out cheats you . I gave this game a one star but if I could have Id given it a 0 so take this star as for the graphics because thats all this game has is good graphics but even that isnt worth staying for . (Added after developer reply) thanks BGL for confirming my statement you say you have no control but you have hundreds telling you there is a problem and instead of trying to fix the problem with your game your going to try make out like everyone is whining over losing ???!!!!!! Its no wonder your game is a joke because you are too . I tell you what let me download the game and you meet me at a table and lets see how random the rolls are . i hope Apple gets enough bad feed on you that your crap game is removed so you guys cant continue cheating people out of their money .

    Hard to get to your gameboard of choice without making an inadvertent choice while swiping through them. Since my last review they have fixed the unintentional board choice problem. Ads are in game purchase offers and only need to be declined once at the beginning of play. Then you have hours of ad-free play. Sentences 1 and 2 above were written many months apart. My initial rating was 4 stars.

  • Fun but a Total Waste of Time if You’re Serious about Backgammon Dec 12, 2017

    By Debo1013
    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.

  • I like this game Jun 3, 2019

    By IllinoisFan
    ...and find all the negative reviews overblown and a little ludicrous. First, it can't be "rigged" against everyone. Surely half the players are winning. I have played thousands of games, maybe tens of thousands. Some times I am the one with incredibly lucky rolls and sometimes it's my opponent. How would the game go about "choosing" a winner? And why? My record is at 45% and I have paid zero for coins; haven't spent a dime. There are problems. The probability of either player rolling a six on the first and second turns is monstrously high. This makes me think the RNG is not that random. Second, it does seem that, once the coin total gets to 60,000 there is always an "accidental" game that takes all of your coins. But that is not such a big deal either. Remember, I pay nothing and, to me, it is the same game whether I'm betting 250 or 10,000.

  • Five doubles in a row for my opponent Jan 28, 2018

    By Sandman1357
    Does anyone make a fair backgammon game? I just downloaded this game. Fixed rolls already wow! By the fourth game my opponent received double sixes on the second roll. Double fours on the third roll. Double ones twice. Then five more doubles in a row to swiftly win. My last three rolls were a two and one. Three times while the opponent rolled nine sets of doubles. And this was just my first ten minutes of play. And my last. Sadly as the graphics looked nice. It’s all about the making you buy coins. As soon as I Lost it sent me directly to all the buy now offers. UPDATE: Just to be fair I played a few more times. On one game when I had all the points blocked and taking them off with three of the opponents pieces on the bar he came back to hit one of my final four pieces. I got ones and twos five times in a row as that was the only two points he had blocked. He came back for an incredible win from behind. I then actually won two games and was asked to play my NEW board. The first two rolls for the opponent were double fives and sixes. He doubled and being my third roll I accepted. Wrong move as he continued to roll double after double. Fourteen doubles for the whole game. That is an impossibility unless the DICE and GAME are RIGGED. I put myself through college playing tournaments and would just like a bit of fun without such blatant cheating.

  • This game is RIGGED!!! Aug 27, 2018

    By Nashell83
    I am generally a good backgammon player but this game makes it impossible to play. I even spent money on this game, thinking maybe they just favor the people that are willing to spend money, but that was a clear mistake. How can I sit there having two openings to come on to the board on the opponents side and play 12 rounds of not rolling a single number I need to come out, But as soon as I knock an opponents peg off, And they only have one opening to come onto the board, that is exactly what they roll. I have had several games where I am ahead by quite a bit But then as we are taking them off the board my opponent always seems to roll multiple doubles to win the game. I even entered a tournament, where my coins got taken from me but I never was able to play a game, it just popped up saying “You Lost”. Another trick they do... I have had several games where I have been way ahead and was obviously going to win and all of the sudden it pops up saying no Internet connection, even though my Wi-Fi strength is just fine, then it says “You Lost”. I am sick of unfair games, I just wanted to play against real people instead of computers but that was a big mistake. I don’t like playing with cheaters but I especially don’t like playing a game that is rigged. Do not spend your money on this app. I will be uninstalling it now!!! 😡

  • Too Many Doubles Jan 24, 2019

    By constantlosers
    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. I just played a game and lost because the game gave my opponent 4 sets of double threes and 1 set of double fours. That would be impossible in a non computer generated game. They claim they use a random number generator. That is pure crap. Don't waste your time playing thus game. Stay away! What's funny is the developers pay Zero attention to all the valid negative comments and neither dies the players who either don't believe it or are just ignorant.

    I'm sick of this P.O.S. worthless game, and the moronically obvious catch up mechanics! "Oh, you have a 180 to 110 lead, and don't think we can find a way for you to lose this? Hold my beer." Instead of forcing the other player to get better, it forces me to make plays I don't want to make, and gives the opponent everything they need to capitalize in it. Constantly! Uninstalled!

  • What is wrong with this game. Delete it Oct 14, 2018

    By scotthudd
    Well after losing about 95% of my matches all at the last roll there is a serious problem. I played about 50 games and there are two consistent things that happen. The first thing is when I am about to win with one piece left my opponent will end with doubles high enough to finish off the board. Ok a lucky day in about 50 games maybe that happens 2 times. The second thing that seems to happen about 90+% of the time is when I have all but one space covered in my home area and I hit my opponent, My opponent will get doubles on the one spot that is not occupied . This is crazy. When I get blocked I can’t seem to get out with 4 open spaces. I just watched 15 rolls and could not get a 1 on the dice that I needed to get out . This game is jacked up. Why does my opponent always get right out and I am unable too almost every time. If there was a negative rating that’s what I would give. The people that give a high rating are the ones who keep getting the doubles on the last roll when I have one piece left and they have four.

    Fun game. However, I won't be buying anymore coins. I once did not receive coins that I had one and was told by admin I had to have a screen shot of the coins I had won. That was impossible because you don't know until it goes out of the game you were playing. So not the best customer service. It's too bad because up till that point I was buying coins. Oh well they must not need people to buy coins if they treat customers that way.

  • It’s fixed... Apr 1, 2018

    By avidayer86
    I have bought no coins. Maybe that’s the problem. Ran my bank up to 100k+. Have not won a game in 10 days. Doesn’t matter what level of player I face, without exception they get out of purgatory on the first sometimes second roll. I might have 5 of 6 rows blocked and they get the perfect roll- too consistently to be random. It’s laughable how when my opponent needs a certain die roll, it happens with laughable certainty. I have found myself in purgatory for 10 consecutive rolls on 2 occasions with only 3 rows blocked, although as you might expect with that many failed rolls the “real live” opponent manages to fill all rows with ease and perfect die rolls. My conclusion is that after a certain period of time, if you’re not buying coins you’re not going to be allowed to win. Also when I was winning I noticed that when my opponent loses internet access, they lose their initial bet. When I fall off, I lose double my bet. It’s a fix and it’s not too bad. The game is fun to play...

    I enjoy playing this game but wish there weren't so many new windows aimed at encouraging users to make purchases. I also don't like the "tip the dealer" move at the end of each game. Since when is there a dealer at backgammon? This is nothing but a thinly veiled mechanism to diminish the winner's prize so as to make it more likely that you'll purchase coins. Not happening!! I agree with the comment that says the game cheats. All too often dice rolls give results that don't appear random. It's clear that the game employs algorithms designed to influence the game in favor of one player. While I wouldn’t say the game is “rigged,” it does produce results fairly consistently in certain situations that don’t appear random. For example, markers left uncovered more than 6 spaces away from an opponent’s marker get hit with a frequency that I suspect you’d have trouble replicating with a roll of real dice. And that’s just one example of many I could give if I wished to go on.

    If you double first you have a much better chance of winning. When you play someone with no money they will most likely win. It really spoils the game when the player with no funds doubles and you can't up the stakes because they have no money. Plus when you double, it becomes auto rolls and you know you're going to lose but you're stuck. I usually just quit because it seems so rigged that I can't believe I'm wasting my time playing a system I can't win.

    I have changed my opinion this game is not good I found 97% of the oponants throw of dice is exact numbers that I moved and for about 3 games in a row that I played my oponant got doubles every 2nd throw of the dice whereas for the entire game I might have got one double, that is just acouple of things that I have never had in the years that I played in the real so unfair and I do understand it is technology that is throwing the dice
