February 23, 2009 — Play65 backgammon website was named the best Skill Game online in Gambling Online Magazine 2008 Readers’ Choice Awards. It is Play65 second successive win in the prestigious online gaming publication poll, after the online backgammon room was awarded only the Silver Award of the same category in last year’s Readers’ Choice Awards.
Thousands of Gambling Online Magazine readers have agreed that Play65 is not only the largest backgammon room online but also the top skill game online, awarding it the highest, most prominent Gold Medal in the Skill Game category at the 8th annual Readers Choice Awards for 2008 and marking the world’s largest backgammon site as the best in its field.
Since getting its initial Gambling Online Magazine Readers’ Choice Award on January 2008, Play65 had worked harder to improve the online gaming experience of its millions of registered members. Throughout 2008, Play65 members enjoyed larger bonuses, new deposit methods and more tournaments including a special series of satellite qualifiers sending four lucky and skilled players to the World Series of Backgammon Championship in Cannes, France.
Play65 had also opened two new game rooms: the "Giants Room", designed for its top ranked players and the "Dark Room", allowing players of all skill levels to choose their online backgammon play partners randomly, anonymously and mysteriously. Play65 became the first backgammon room online to allow Georgian players to play their national "narde" game in their native tongue, by launching Play65 Georgia.
