Play65™ Fights against Backgammon Bots

Play65™ has declared war against the usage of Bots* on its backgammon game platform.

For that reason, Play65™ has elected a Board of Trustees that consists of a group of independent and objective world class professional backgammon players (not Play65™ employees) who are regarded as a supreme refereeing authority in the backgammon world. The Board of Trustees will have the right to investigate any player’s account that is suspected to be using a Bot and rule on whether that account should be shutdown or not. If the Board concludes that the suspected player was actually using a Bot to assist him in winning the game, then that user’s account will be shut down immediately, his username banned from the system and the outstanding balance in his account will be confiscated and later used to credit the accounts of those players who lost that money.

A player whose username has been banned and account shutdown will be able to file an appeal, and his case will be reexamined by the Board.

*Bot – A computerized software or any other electronic device that is used by a player during the backgammon game for the purpose of gaining an unfair advantage against his opponent.
