Review about 65.com:
65. Com is currently a beta version for a website that offers backgammon games online, either just for fun or for real money. The website is operated by "Empire On-line", a gaming company.
The design of the website I personally find bothering, due to constant blinking buttons which say "Download Now". The main color in the design of this site is green. The use of green suggests an international code for casino games, since tables in casino houses are conventionally green. However, as backgammon has always been a board game, as is stated in Wikipedia . it is not one of the traditional games played in casinos. Therefore, it is not clear whether green is the best choice for a backgammon website.
The website offers extensive explanations about the game and its rules, including FAQ and backgammon tips for beginners as well as for experts. The different texts in this site tend to use a proliferation of exclamation marks, which create the impression of an advertisement.
65. Com offers a generous signup bonus of 20% up to 20 $, which I assume means that new players get a bonus of 20% of their first deposit, up to a maximum of 20$. An explanation about this bonus is not yet available on the site. The name of this bonus is "welcome bonus", a name that adds a positive element to the neutral name "signup bonus", and creates a feeling of being invited.
There are a few problems with the site, probably due to its being a beta version. The affiliates program is still not active. This is also true for the "Tell a Fried" bonus category, and for the support FAQ, Unfortunately, I was unable to download the software of the game itself. My computer failed to activate the game three times, and each time I had to turn it off.
