Backgammon is a very popular game and is also played on computers. In skill it is likened to chess but has an element of chance because it is controlled by the roll of dice. It even has an element of bluffing. This makes it an ideal online casino game and one wonders why it took so long coming.
But it is better late than never. Club World Casinos is a group that operates a number of online casinos such as Club USA, Club UK, Club Euro and Club World casinos. The group is licensed in Antilles. Club World is launching an online casino dedicated to backgammon. It is Club World Backgammon. This backgammon casino is being powered by P2P Gaming and Somnia. Club World Backgammon offers standard backgammon games, sit and go tournaments and scheduled event competitions that run on an hourly, daily, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly basis. The weekly tournaments have a minimum guaranteed prize pool of $500, the bi-weekly tournaments have a minimum guaranteed prize pool of $1,000 and the monthly tournaments have a minimum guaranteed prize pool of $2,500. For the more serious and quieter players there is a 'jungle room' that features anonymous games without usernames, only player rankings. The online casino also offers other games apart from backgammon, but these are not the usual casino games commonly found on online casinos. The selection of about 20 games includes canasta, cribbage, dominoes, euchre and gin rummy.
Club World Backgammon realizes that backgammon is not a common gambling game and has taken steps to initiate online casino players to this game. The casino provides guidance for new players and also provides a play-for-fun facility to give new players the chance to practice and improve their game without wagering real money. Once they have reached a comfort level they can enter the real money games. Another feature that new players like is to be able to interact with each other and understand strategy issues from their peers. Therefore Club World Backgammon also strives to create a community environment where players can get in touch with each other through a chat facility.
Club World Backgammon is structured like any other online casino. Some promotions have already been announced and others are in the offing. Those announced include a 30% first deposit bonus up to $30, a refer a friend bonus of $50 and daily free rolls offering over $10,000 per month in prizes. A player will have to play at least 80 games before any bonuses and winnings from bonuses can be cashed. Customer support is available round the clock.
