  • What are these numbers next to my Home when I play a game?

    This is called a Pip-count. This tells you how further away you are from winning the game and is sometimes considered when deciding whether to accept or offer a double.

  • What’s a double and where can I find it?

    Double is the option to offer your opponent to double the current game’s bet. For example: if your current bet is $100 coins, offering a double will give the opponent two choices: Either to increase the current bet to $200 coins or to forfeit the game. The first double is open to both players and the following option to offer a double is in the hands of the last player who accepted a double. The maximum double in a game can go as high as 64 times the original bet.

    • Accept a double - If you accept a double, your current bet will be doubled.

    • Decline a double - If you decline a double, you will forfeit the game and lose your current bet.

    • Redouble - Redouble is the option to accept the double and offer another double in the same turn.

    As you progress in the game the doubling cube option will be available from the $1,000 cash table, which unlocks at Level 12. Please note, you will meet the doubling cube only in the cash tables (you won’t find them in tournaments). Please look for the cube image on the table triangles in the lobby.

  • What is a Gammon or Backgammon win/loss?

    Gammon - If one of the players won before his opponent didn’t bare off at least one of his checkers by game’s end, it’s considered a gammon win for the other player.

    Backgammon - If one of the users won before his opponent has checkers on the bar or at user’s home and didn’t bare off at least one of his checkers by game’s end, it’s considered a backgammon win for the other player.

  • How are XP (Experience Points) and Level calculated?

    Performing certain game actions will give you XP points, which help you level up.  Accepting to double a bet is an example of a game action that will give you XP. Most XP is granted at the end of a match. Remember, the higher the bet, the more XP you'll get.

  • What are XP (Experience Points)?
