    Dice Rolls:
    Numerous reviews claim the dice rolls are rigged, this simply is not the case. Proof: the app allows you to enter your own externally rolled dice at any level - strangely the Expert level still manages to magically get those 'lucky' rolls - largely because its not luck, but game play skill !

    Backgammon is a simple race game. The object is to move the pieces around the board towards your inner table. Once all 15 of your pieces have arrived in the inner table, they can be removed from the board. The first player to remove all his pieces from the board is the winner. Although the play is highly skilful, the fact that the moves rely on the roll of the dice introduces an element of luck allowing even a novice to win the odd game against a world champion.

    Backgammon has been played throughout the world for thousands of years. ZingMagic's version of Backgammon enables you to play this most popular of board games to a high standard anytime, anywhere. With clean crisp graphics and a powerful game play engine ensuring your game is a competitive one regardless of ability, time will literally appear to fly by with ZingMagic's incarnation of the classic game of Backgammon.

    Programmed to cheat. Uninstalled. Plus, very buggy. Freeze phone when received incoming WhatsApp, SMS and calls. Worst game ever played. Developers better go fly kite!

    I have played this game many times at the expert level. Sure, there a few times the computer got a "lucky" roll, but I have beat it more times than not by putting my pieces in good positions and getting a "lucky" roll myself. The people who have wrote poor reviews about this game being "rigged" need to practice more.

    At the Expert Level the Dice will play out to the favor of the AI. Also, there is no way to play a round of games. Like the best out of 5.

    The game is not so much rigged as based on probability algorithms that some low grade programmer thought was clever. Very lazy. Better options out there. Avoid. Rating: one star.
