GameAccount is a British company that offers gambling games worldwide, with their British gambling license.
Apart from backgammon, you can play other games here as well, such as roulette, blackjack and arcade games.
If you want to practice for a while, you can play using play money. Playing backgammon at GameAccount requires you to have Adobe Flash Player installed. If you don't, or are unsure, you can download or update it here.
GameAccount guarantees the safety of all your payments. Your money is kept on a bank account at Barclays Bank. You can withdraw it from your playing account at any time. The site also uses 128 bit encryption and SSL technology, so that are your financial information can be handled safely and securely.
The backgammon room works by using a player status system. This system ensures that you only play against players with the same skills as you. This protects beginners from the more experienced professionals. GameAccount clearly indicates at which score a new status will be reached. Results of previous games determine whether your status is increased or decreased. For instance, your status will go up faster if you defeat a higher ranked player, than when you beat a lower ranked player. It's the other way around for games that you lose.
You can look at your status by clicking on your own name in the lobby. All players start at 1500 points. The more cash games you play, the higher your status will be. You're a rookie if you have less than 1600 points, an amateur if you have more than 1600 points but less than 1750. If you have 1750 points or more, you're a pro!
GameAccount is one of a few backgammon rooms that are proud to say they use bots to play. In the lobby you will see a rookiebot, amateurbot and probot. The bots are online 24/7 in the lobby, you can play them for play money or real money. Playing against the bots has a few advantages. You can improve your skill by playing them, and you can even chat to them. But beware, bots are programmed not to lose too much money to other players. If you're much better than the bot, he will eventually stop playing against you, just like a real player would. A bot can also decide not to accept a challenge if he's out of money.
