Backgammon Betting

This section is designed to help you learn backgammon betting from us, Backgammon Tips - part of the Casino Tips Group.

Backgammon is played for an agreed wager (or number of points in the tournament play). During the course of the game, a player who feels he has a sufficient advantage may propose doubling his stakes using the backgammon doubling cube.

He may do so, only at the start of his turn, and before he has rolled the dice.

A player who is offered a double may refuse, in which case he concedes the game and pays the original wager. Otherwise, he must accept the double and play on for the new higher stakes. A player who accepts a double becomes the owner of the cube and only he may make the next double.

Subsequent doubles in the same game are called redoubles. If a player refuses a redouble, he must pay the wager that was at stake prior to the redouble. Otherwise, he becomes the new owner of the cube and the game continues at twice the previous stakes.

Redoubles can increase upto 64 times the original wager.

Playing with Beavers

An optional rule in Single Mode (money play) which says that when a player is doubled, he may immediately redouble (beaver) while retaining possession of the doubling cube. The original doubler has the option of accepting or refusing as with a normal double.

Gammons and Backgammons

At the end of the game, if the losing player has borne off at least one stone, he loses only the value showing on the doubling cube (the original wager or one point if there have been no doubles). However, if the loser has not borne off any of his stones, he is gammoned and loses twice the value of the doubling cube.

More so, if the loser has not borne off any of his stones and still has a stone on the bar or in the winners` home board, he is backgammoned and loses three times the value of the doubling cube.
