Backgammon is a game that has been around for many years. It is not a game that you will find in a casino and should really not be mentioned on the site. We are mentioning it though because it is getting to be a very popular game among online poker players.

Playing backgammon online is being compared to online poker because it is not just a question of luck but there is also a lot of skill involved. As online poker is growing fast, online backgammon is growing even faster. It is an old game that has been made accessible for everyone who has internet. There is no need now to go to a local club or social office as everyone can play against everyone, all over the world.
Many older people who are new to online poker prefer backgammon as they know the game well and do not want to invest time into learning poker. This means that the more people that find there way to the internet the more backgammon players the world is going to see. At the moment there are only two real software companies that offer backgammon but we think that this will change in the future. The two companies that are offering it also offer a feature in their software that players can play for real money against each other. This is the part that is catching on very fast and is doing well to catch up with the whole online poker trend.
