FIBS was easily the best site I could find before getting onto Grid and it doesn't require an invite.

Re: Where to play online for money?

Can somebody sponsor me for a GridGammon account? I have been wanting to play on there for years but do not know anybody that plays on there. I'm an avid backgammon player and I'm a very strong player. I know alot of pros play on GridGammon and would like to play against the best. I am not a dropper and I don't complain about the dice. Thanks

Who says you need a sponsor?

I downloaded the whole thing. It seems it expects that you already signed up with a nickname.

Apologies. As the title didn't appeal to me, I only read the posts on page 2.

Re: Where to play online for money?

But are there really sites that can play for money which is legit? How are you going to be paid for it? Are those not scam or whatsoever? Just wondering though because I haven't tried one even before.

Re: Where to play online for money?

I don't know of any where I would plunk down money, but it's always possible such a site would come along.

Even if the site were completely legit, however, most of your opponents would be either world-class players or (even worse) people using bots. So your chances of coming out ahead would be pretty slim.

I confirm that Backgammon 4 Money is a shady and scammy company. I am waiting for my withdrawal request for 5 months. They are masters of the same bull**** excuse "technical payment problems"

I used to play at a place called TrueMoneyGames which no longer exists. It was ideal for me - I could play friendly 5-point/7-point matches for $3 or $5 or whatever, which was exactly what I wanted.

There must surely be somewhere like this available, in 2016?

But I can't find it ... looks like TMG, and PartyGammon, and Play65 have all gone?

I tried to join BGRoom and got an error message saying they don't accept members from my country. I'm in the UK. I was astonished and emailed "Support" to ask if this can possibly be true, and got a reply saying Yes, they really don't accept UK players.

Getting information through Google is really difficult: so many of the websites are many years out of date.

Is there anywhere I can play low-stake games (I don't mind playing for $0.50 or $1, or whatever), where it's safe to pay in $100 by credit-card or PayPal, and there are large numbers of players and regularly available games, please?

Again - I know that people can cheat and use bots on these sites, and I don't need all the "health warnings". I'm just asking where I can play low-stake games?

Would be very grateful for any up-to-date information relevant to 2016, please - and thanks in advance for any replies.
u can play me in gridgammon.com
