The ancient game of backgammon, spiced up with the immediacy of the Internet and burgeoning player popularity is the latest online skill game offering from the Club World group.
 
The group launched Club World Backgammon.com this week, adding the new venture to its stable of established brands such as Club USA, Club UK and Club Euro Casino.
 
Powered by P2P Gaming and Somnia, the site has a selection of over 18 games, including Club Games, Club Canasta, Club Cribbage, Club Dominoes, Club Euchre and Club Gin Rummy.
 
The new offering features live, 24/7 Support and Backgammon gaming, including standard games, sit and go tournaments and scheduled event tournaments run on a daily, hourly, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly basis.  A variety of promotions are in the mix, with a 30 percent first deposit bonus, refer-a-friend rewards and daily free-rolls.
 
The website includes newbie-sensitive guidance and a play-for-fun facility to give users the opportunity to practise and improve their skills, together with optional community action through chat features.  For those with a quieter and more focused style of play, there's a  “Jungle Room,” where the live games are quiet and anonymous….no usernames appear – only player rankings.
