Review about partygammon:
PartyGammon had made very friendly software. It looks good, it sounds wonderful, the 3D board is very realistic and as backgammon software it is very friendly, easy to follow and navigate.
The new 3 dimensional backgammon software, PartyGammon by party gaming is the newest backgammon server on the online backgammon scene. Its interface looks very good and realistic and it seems like the developers tried to use all the good features of the already existing backgammon softwares.
The playing is very easy and friendly and the feel is much like the real game. The PartyGammon server uses a nice rating system, very similar to all others online backgammon softwares.
When entering the PartyGammon server, you will find hundred backgammon users, more or less, on all the tables, play money games, the tournaments and everything else. When someone wants to play backgammon online, all he needs to do is join a game with somebody and play.
People can now enjoy the advantages of the web, but feel like they're playing for real. In PartyGammon you can play for free or for real money, and win huge cash prizes. Only when you feel ready ? play for real money.
You can meet people from around the world, choose who to play with, chat with people, see exactly how much skilled is your opponent by viewing his rank, and choose not to play with pros, when you're a beginner.
At PartyGammon you play against real people, not against the computer or against the "house", and it's a one-on-one game, so there's always someone who wins.
PartyGammon is a website devoted to backgammon games, operated by "Party Games" company and licensed by the government of Gibraltar. The current website is a beta version, but almost all of the options offered by the site already function. One exception is the sheet specifying the tournament formant.
The design of the website is slightly too strict and monotonous, which makes an impression of a website that belongs to a bank or a business organization rather than one created for games and for entertainment.
The rakes change according to the kind of games and the stakes. In a Single game, the rakes are: 0-19$ 5%, 20-99$ 4%, 100$+ 2.75%. In a Match the rakes are $0 - $19 4% 7% $20 - $99 3% 6% $100 + 2.75%. There is an additional commission of 0.25% per point above one point. There are a few other limitations, depending on the rate of the players.
Although PartyGammon does not seem to offer a special signup bonus, there is a bonus for referring friends to the site. For each friend who joins as a real-money player the one who sent the invitation receives a $50 bonus, while the friend him/herself receives a $25 bonus.
The company "Party Games" offers a rather unusually extensive affiliates program, with many possibilities to join as an affiliate both online and offline. There are four basic payment options for affiliates.
1. A single payment for each real money player referred by the affiliate, up to 75$.
2. A revenue share of the rake from each referred player, divided by the number of games, minus bonuses and other extra payments.
3. A sub-affiliate network. Each affiliate is able to recruit other sub-affiliates. The original affiliate can thus earn from invitations that sub-affiliates send to their friends.
4. An affiliate can in fact engage in search for media such as a website/network/Internet property that has traffic that can be leveraged to generate players. For directing the company to such media, an affiliate can choose either a single payment of 200$, or a revenue share for each real money player.
In addition to the affiliate program options, PartyGammon offers two kinds of bonuses for payers. The first is a deposit bonus, up to an extra 100% in addition to deposit. The second is a cash back offer, up to 20% of the deposit back if the account balance falls below $5 during the specific promotion periods.
In accordance with the somber design of this site, PartyGammon includes a responsible gaming sheet, which elaborates about limiting access to minors, and offers a self-test about knowing when to stop. I find this information extremely important for a website that offers online gambling. Nevertheless, this information adds to the "non-fun" general impression of this website, unfortunately.
