    Why bother writing reviews Jul 25, 2021

    By Paul roberts
    The game is rigged there is no doubt but many others also, this one is particularly designed to generate income. Also how does it get 5 stars when the majority of the comments are critical, why do people give it 5 stars then claim it is rigged. The reviews are rigged as well!!!!!

    The most rigged backgammon game Jul 18, 2021

    By Joel Johnson
    Beware!! This has to be the most rigged game on the internet to date! There is no way the dice rolls are random. I lose the opening roll off 95% of the time. Random would tend to be closer to 50% but not even close. Dont spend any money because pay to win does not apply here!!! Its been a horrible experience

    Very dishonest app right here!!! Jun 2, 2021

    I was watching the advertisement videos to get some free coins. I was just about to hit $10,000,000 dollars when my balance went down to $8,000,000. I wrote numerous emails and provided EVERYTHING that I was asked for. Lisa was rude when answering my last email and basically told me I was lying. The bottom line here??!! Management is quick to say “God Bless” and then behave like the devil!! This app will try ANYTHING to get fools to purchase coins!!!!! BUT THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN WITH ME!!!

    Lord of the Board the Dice are fine Mar 5, 2021

    By Frank Klein
    I play expert level backgammon on GridGammon and on old FIBS. I train with Extreme Gammon and GnuBG. The dice look fine. I win about 70% of my matches/games here. Mainly because players here have much less experience, and often make poor plays. also they accept way too many bad doubles. If you are beginner, do not expect good results until you have ready a few backgammon books. once again I say. the dice look random to me. 100% ok.

  • Not a good game for people with short temper Jan 25, 2021

    By canemint23
    Nothing new to say here, I’m sure you have all read the countless reviews on dice algorithms. The game developers promise this is randomized but there’s an odd pattern to it that makes it look purposely done. If the 1 and 6 spots are blocked at the opposing players side I promise you’ll roll a 6 1 and be stuck there. This can’t be random. For people who play this in real life they know exactly what random dice combos look like. This game will give a player 3-4 doubles in a row. Statistically if you take 2 dice throw it the odds of rolling doubles a SINGLE time is 16.6%.... the fact that some people get it 3 or 4 times in a row is not impossible but statistically not probably at all. That’s a 1 in 1296 occurrence and you can look this up. I’ve played about 600 games on the app and this has happened multiple times so developers please realize that when we say it’s not randomized we don’t mean you guys rig the games but the algorithm for the dice are extremely unrealistic and you should find the proper solution. I know I’m gonna get a message saying “ we can assure you we use the best dice algorithm blah blah blah”. I know you guys tried but please look for a better way of doing this because it ruins the game.

    This is the 2nd piece of feedback I have given. I saw the developers response to my first and frankly I found it insulting. Either that or they have never played the game they have created. At any level above $200 dollars you are almost guaranteed to lose. The opposition rolls many more doubles than you, gets off the bar faster than you, hits you far more frequently than you hit them. If you install this game only play at the $200 level, that way you will play exciting games with an equal chance
  • Do not buy coins here! Jul 20, 2020

    By Kittyluvsmooshi
    Think twice before you purchase coins on this site. After years of just ignoring the SUPER SPIN, I decided to give it a try. A huge mistake! The lowest amount on the wheel was 470,000 coins with a maximum of 3 million for 99 cents. Pretty tempting, right? Well, once I paid, rather than letting me spin the wheel, they just added 90,000 coins to my account. 90,000? Why? So I sent an email, the response was the “free Mega Bonus” randomly lands on a slot. Keep spinning and good luck!!!! In other words, the person did not even read my post. So, I took a screen shot of the wheel and sent it with more explanations. They then added another 10,000 coins. Again, I sent another screen shot of the wheel with more explanations. I added I did not understand why the person was ignoring the problem and demanded that they either refund me the .99 cents or let me spin the wheel to collect what is rightfully mine. At the same time, I contacted the app which I used to pay for the wheel spin and asked for a refund. This morning, again another 500,000 coins were added to my account rather than letting me spin the wheel. I am totally exhausted dealing with this game site. Never again will I purchase coins from them. It is not worth the hassle!

    By whatever nickname needs to be here
    ... if you want to understand how to thoroughly erode customer trust. Backgammon with strangers is inherently high in variance. In every free space, and in every free moment, this app asks you to spend money on the coins used to play. The way the game is set up, when you lose, you lose 100% of your stakes, but when you win, you only win 85% of the pot. That doesn’t seem so bad, reading it, until you break it down. To essentially break even, you have to win 3 games for every 2 you lose. Which means you can’t gain any ground unless you are winning considerably more than you lose. But as mentioned, there’s a lot of variance built into the game already. So, when you lose a game in an app that that captures every moment to pry a purchase out of you, it’s not much of a leap in logic to question if you’re in fact playing real people, or playing bots designed to regularly beat you in somewhat believable fashion. There’s no way for the user to know what’s going on, and the developers have made it abundantly clear that the only thing that matters is your in-app purchases. The app is fun, mostly because backgammon is fun. The app is good for playing with friends remotely. The app is poor for playing against strangers.

    It could be worse. Yes, it takes money to play, I have gotten this far JUST playing the game. If you can't play then don't. I only have issues where I'm playing a more experienced player and the computer (or whoever controls gameplay) throws the game their way when I start beating them. That's just uncool and complete BS.

    This is my first choice when I'm in the mood to play some serious backgammon! I enjoy playing live with other players from all over the world and I look forward to the daily challenges, the mega spin and free bonus coins every few hours. But I especially love the new albums that they have every month. It's true you usually do end up buying coins to play, but they give so many generous prizes it usually makes up for it.

    It's good, solid backgammon with other chances to spend money or play silly games. Now it won't update for me so I might take away a star. I've tried five times in the past two days to update. I even uninstalled in order to install new. Now it won't install. It just spins for five to ten minutes saying Pending. It never finishes. So now I can't play at all!
  • Don’t Waste Your Time & Money Dec 12, 2019

    By IckyShart
    If you want to play REAL backgammon, hop on PlayOk or another reputable site. This app is a complete money-grabbing sham, and for them to say otherwise is even worse. I honestly don’t know where to begin. Their “online standard” 15% minimum rake is blasphemy. Maybe if one could cash in the coins for real money, that would make sense; similar to a casino poker room. But not only are you buying coins that have zero monetary value, they skim off your winnings, making it virtually impossible to get ahead in coins. And that is even with a >50% win rate! The dice algorithm is absolutely cooked. If you’re miles ahead, prepare to see double after double after double. If you’re on the bar looking at 3 open spaces, you can almost forget about getting in. Then (you guessed it!) doubles to block you in. The game plays impossibly “lucky”. I can’t count how many times I’ve opened the game with a 5-1 or 6-2, get hit immediately, and don’t get off the bar until after the opponent has eaten 4 blots. The odds of that happening once are less than 0.1%, so the fact it’s happened on multiple occasions on this app tells you everything you need to know. Not to mention I have never had that happen in my favor. You are a fool if you give these crooks your hard earned money. If you are new to backgammon, stay far away because this is NOT how the game is played. I have played my last game on this app, and I hope many of you will be soon to follow.

    "Mega Bonus" is fake. You will never spin a substantial bonus. There is one 700 on the wheel and one 10,500. You'll get 700 lots of times, never anything substantial. And, the bots cheat. Most players are bots. All designed for you to spend money. I'd spend money to kill the bots. You'll know when you play a bot. They always hit you with exactly the right combination.

There's no way in the world or the universe anyone can bring a double 6, 4 or 5 times in the row!!! That's impossible. Unless your dice got a magnet attached to it.

  • Rake is 15% Apr 5, 2020

    By Inowhatechase
    I enjoy the app, it’s very easy to find a game. It’s easy to get frustrated with dice, but that happens in any game, I’ve measured a few times and results appear like they may be random. But I don’t understand why the developers say the rake isn’t 15%. My coin total was 603,987 before my last game, won a $2500 game and total is 605,737. That the rake is $750 is just math. And they don’t take more than your bet if you lose, so the $750 is on the total $5000 bet which is 15% exactly (not something much less than 15%, as your developer said in response to the last reviewer. Why not just be honest about this? It’s fine, it’s what the game costs, if I don’t like it then I go elsewhere. If you don’t want it to be 15%, then fix it. But when you lie about this, it makes me wonder, maybe I should do more tests in the actual randomness of the dice. But whether I do or not, your response now makes me wonder if the game is fair. And I don’t know why you’d want your customer base wondering that.

  • Fun, but algorithm is not random. Dec 11, 2020

    By gamm-on!!
    I have several backgammon apps, and this one is my favorite. It has good graphics and is well developed - for the most part, EXCEPT that the algorithms and dice roll are not REALLY random. Now the developer is going to respond to this by saying, “we assure you that each dice roll is random.” But you don’t have to be a statistician to realize that it is not. I’ve played thousands (literally) of games of backgammon - on live boards with live people, and also online. My win rate is typically around 60%. But as other users and reviewers have written, the win rate on this app is significantly lower - Mine is around 50% on this app. Most concerning and frustrating is that the rolls that come up seem to be fixed. I’ve seen the competitor get the exact roll they needed exactly when they needed it. It has happened repeatedly - to the point where it falls outside of the realm of a “fluke” or “random probability”. And it has happened for me and also against me. So this is not me being bitter over losing a game or two. (Even though the developer may claim that like I’ve seen on other reviews. I just question the algorithm and “randomness” of this app. I still use it because it’s still fun, but I don’t have any expectation of it representing a true, and random, game play. Enjoy!
  • Good app but intensely rigged May 21, 2020

    The reason I keep coming back to this game is because of how clean it looks and quick it is. However if you’re looking for a fair game forget about it. I’ve gotten friends and family to play this game with me and they all say the same thing... they’ve never played a backgammon app this rigged in their lives. I had to come see the App Store reviews because I knew it wasn’t just me. Like people are saying, if you do everything right and are way ahead, prepare for constant doubles from the other side. Want to get out? If the game doesn’t feel like it prepare to wait. I’ve been playing backgammon since I was a kid and I had a cousin who had never played the game before download the app to play me as an experiment and no joke I could only win like 1 out of every 7 games. He made every single wrong move and left pieces open all over the board and it just wouldn’t let me win. Absolute insanity. Beyond frustrating and even though they say the rolls are completely random it is simply not even close to true. I feel bad leaving a review like this but I feel it aggravates me so much sometimes I want people to stay away if this would aggravate them too. I’m sorry..
  • Canned Developer Response/Still a Fun Game May 20, 2020

    I stick by my premise that the game is fun but the dice rolls are not realistic. I did get a response from the developer on an earlier review, but it was simply a canned one that is used over & over in different forms for other people who have voiced the same constructive criticism I gave. It didn’t bother me, and was actually kind of funny & amusing: “Thank you very much for your response!” (Building rapport) “The dice are not set in any way to be fixed or for a predetermined outcome.” (You are wrong - the game isn’t fixed). “We want all of our players to have a wonderful, unique and enjoyable experience.” (We are just good people and our product is awesome. If you think something is out of sorts, you are simply mistaken.) “We truly wish you all the best and hope you enjoy our product!” (Polite, but a dismissal just the same). I’m not offended or put off, not at all. Like I mentioned previously, the game can be fun to play so it’s not all bad. Finally, to the developers, I absolutely wish you all the best with your wonderful, astonishing and aesthetically pleasing product, and wish you all the absolute best in your future endeavors! God speed, and have a fantastic day!

    Everything about this game is great except for the bots. Everyone seems to be having the same issue, and how am I versing players in matches where they don't have enough coins to play? I just played someone in a 15k entry fee match and he only had 2k in coins. Match me with real players, and use a random number generator for the dice. Please

    Purchases are the main focus of this app. When you and your opponent both bet $5000 why is the payout less than $10000? When an opponent doesn't have the money to double, why are they allowed to do so, yet you have to pay the full amount? When you do make a purchase why is the next offer always higher than what you just purchased? I always feel a little cheated by the game!
  • Ugh!! Jan 21, 2020

    I love to play backgammon but this app is suspicious. I call it that because I can guess how to play my pieces just by the roll of the dice! I spend too much money on coins and can NEVER get ahead of what I have purchased!! Most of the time my opponents roll exactly what they need to trap me or beat me. When your opponent gets lucky like that to start the game DO NOT accept a double because you will end up trapped in the bar until your opponent gets all of their pieces in their side and kicks you out then you’ll have to race to get into yours or you’ll get gammoned and end up losing double!! Just when I am so frustrated to quit the game they’ll “throw me a bone” and give me rolls to trash my opponent and get some of my coins back. Then I go on an “unlucky” streak again. If you like to play mechanically it’s enjoyable, the boards are nice and the pieces move smoothly, but there’s no way the dice are random. No way. Don’t buy coins and just play the least expensive if you don’t care about your “dollar amount”. Ready to find another place to play. 🤷🏽

    Why bother writing reviews Jul 25, 2021

    By Paul roberts
    The game is rigged there is no doubt but many others also, this one is particularly designed to generate income. Also how does it get 5 stars when the majority of the comments are critical, why do people give it 5 stars then claim it is rigged. The reviews are rigged as well!!!!!

    The most rigged backgammon game Jul 18, 2021

    By Joel Johnson
    Beware!! This has to be the most rigged game on the internet to date! There is no way the dice rolls are random. I lose the opening roll off 95% of the time. Random would tend to be closer to 50% but not even close. Dont spend any money because pay to win does not apply here!!! Its been a horrible experience

    Very dishonest app right here!!! Jun 2, 2021

    By Eva Swan
    I was watching the advertisement videos to get some free coins. I was just about to hit $10,000,000 dollars when my balance went down to $8,000,000. I wrote numerous emails and provided EVERYTHING that I was asked for. Lisa was rude when answering my last email and basically told me I was lying. The bottom line here??!! Management is quick to say “God Bless” and then behave like the devil!! This app will try ANYTHING to get fools to purchase coins!!!!! BUT THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN WITH ME!!!

  • Don’t Waste Your Time & Money Dec 12, 2019

    By IckyShart
    If you want to play REAL backgammon, hop on PlayOk or another reputable site. This app is a complete money-grabbing sham, and for them to say otherwise is even worse. I honestly don’t know where to begin. Their “online standard” 15% minimum rake is blasphemy. Maybe if one could cash in the coins for real money, that would make sense; similar to a casino poker room. But not only are you buying coins that have zero monetary value, they skim off your winnings, making it virtually impossible to get ahead in coins. And that is even with a >50% win rate! The dice algorithm is absolutely cooked. If you’re miles ahead, prepare to see double after double after double. If you’re on the bar looking at 3 open spaces, you can almost forget about getting in. Then (you guessed it!) doubles to block you in. The game plays impossibly “lucky”. I can’t count how many times I’ve opened the game with a 5-1 or 6-2, get hit immediately, and don’t get off the bar until after the opponent has eaten 4 blots. The odds of that happening once are less than 0.1%, so the fact it’s happened on multiple occasions on this app tells you everything you need to know. Not to mention I have never had that happen in my favor. You are a fool if you give these crooks your hard earned money. If you are new to backgammon, stay far away because this is NOT how the game is played. I have played my last game on this app, and I hope many of you will be soon to follow.

    "Mega Bonus" is fake. You will never spin a substantial bonus. There is one 700 on the wheel and one 10,500. You'll get 700 lots of times, never anything substantial. And, the bots cheat. Most players are bots. All designed for you to spend money. I'd spend money to kill the bots. You'll know when you play a bot. They always hit you with exactly the right combination.

    This game is programmed to separate you from your money, not enjoyment. Statistically there are so many anomalies with dice rolls that disadvantage a player, even in very unlikely open situations. Odds are decisively tilted on opening roll to the opponent. The side games are also a complete sham, especially the album games, where pieces are collected by earning cards and duplicate cards are issued at a 90%+ rate. GPlay needs a strong review of this game and the ethics of its developers.
