Too many robots

It would be nice to play a real person once in a while instead of all these robots. Curious where you guys get all the people pictures though!!!

Update: if you like playing against robots, then this is the game for you!! They get the perfect roll every time. No way these are real people. Play it once and it’ll be very obvious!!!

Other things I’ve noticed. Never take an offer to double from your opponent. You will lose every time. The game will NOT let you win. Even if you’re ahead. Your opponent will get whatever they need to beat you.

It doesn’t matter how good you are at backgammon. You will lose most of your games. The robots here will see that your don’t win consistently!! I consider myself to be an above average player and I lose most of my games.

OMG, these robots are so hard to play against. I have the game won and they roll multiple sets of doubles to beat you. So frustrating!!!!

I love playing this game but have experienced quite
a few issues as of late.
1.) I am currently experiencing difficulty in accessing the game from my home screen. For example, the game will act as though it is loading and then closes out.
2.) If I win a game, I am not awarded all if the points.
Fixing those two issues would greatly improve this wonderful game; especially when I am unable to play due to the game not loading.

Fixed game / frustrating

In case you win to much at this game don’t get to excited, it is designed to do everything possible to make you lose and buy more chips. I lost to many games when I was in a situation when I had more then 90% chance to win to be a coincidence.
(It happens in real life but here it is just crazy. I think I once counted 5 games in a row when I would have great advantage and the opponent would only be able to turn things around with only one roll and not only that he would get that roll but he would hit another few perfect rolls after that .. impossible .
I played a lot of games here and after a while I could predict the roll. No way this game is fair.
