Full Description

Play65 is one of the oldest and currently the largest Backgammon room.

The online backgammon software at Play65 has the best graphics and look available on the web today. Easy to see peices are used on traditional backgammon colors in this stunning representation of a backgammon board. Software features like the double-click auto-move, auto-bearoff, pip counter and the doubling cube allows for fast game play with optional length timers. Each player is rated based on their personal history at the room and can take advantage of multi-table play with optional rules like the Crawford rule and beavers.

Great graphics, nice and friendly user-interfaces. Membership is free, each player has it's own rating, and you can play for fun or for real money. Play65 offers matches, tournaments, event-tournaments, and freerolls where you can win real money for free!
At Play65, you can watch the game and chat with the players; you can deposit/withdraw with all credit cards and PayPal.

The unbelievable growth of online backgammon continues as there are close to 10,000 players competing live at Play65 during peak weekend times. Although there are some swing tournaments and sit and go's running, the large marjority of these players are playing individual cash games and series. Anyone looking for a quick game at low stakes usually does not have to wait long before getting offers.

The multi-table backgammon tournaments remain small with usually under a hundred players and sit and go's usually host 4 or 8 players. A popular tournament format called 'swing' tournaments have recently been released giving each player a set number of chips, and giving backgammon games chip values that increase each round as you face different opponents. A monthly main event is held with a prize pool boasting $100,000 , the biggest ever online. Backgammon tournaments can be quite fun and exciting but it should be mentioned that the house fee on these tournaments remains quite high relative to the buy-in.

Play65 offers a variety of sit-and-go or event tournaments (including play-for-fun tournaments).
