Review: Backgammon website

I'm looking at other boardgames sites offering online games other than chess for once. I chose to look at backgammon as it is the closest boardgame to chess (other than draught).

The site that turned up often on the search engine is BackgammonMasters. A close cursory glance at the site, I think to myself that more chess sites should follow them in terms of marketing and site design.

BackgammonMasters Game Lobby looks simply enticing. Besides backgammon they also offer games such as blackjack game online as well as poker online. Of course, you play against other human opponents.

The good thing for beginners is the help resources where you can read up and learn some blackjack basic strategy. That's important for any online game to get beginners by providing good materials for them to read first.

As for me, I'm not much of a gambler but I am interested in blackjack game online. Perhaps later I can do a more detailed review on this site when I've got my feet wet.

The website itself has undergone a major revamp where they've introduced a new look as well as improved user navigation. From what I can see from first looks, they have done a pretty good job.
