Play65 Launches a Free Java Version of its Backgammon Software

Solution Allows Anyone to Play Backgammon Right Away, Without any Installation - for Free!

Play65, the world's biggest online backgammon room, has launched a free Java backgammon version of their very popular game platform. This allows anyone to play the backgammon game right away, without any installation - and it is all for free!

Play65, the world's biggest online backgammon room, has launched a free Java backgammon version of their very popular game platform.

The Java version of Play65's backgammon software is free of charge and allows avid players to play their favorite game immediately, as no installation is required.Thanks to this, says the company, "playing backgammon is just one click away" - whether you have a PC, Mac or Pocket PC, no matter if you are using Windows, Linux or Mac OS.

Asked for the reasoning behind the Java version release, Caroline Tholman, Play65's Promotions Coordinator, answered: "Following the buzz around Play65™'s backgammon platform and the fact that it did not have a Mac or Linux compatible version until now, we have decided to create a Java version so that any online backgammon player -- including Mac and Linux users -- can enjoy."

Considering the popularity of Play65's backgammon software in its original version, the Java version release was, without a doubt, a wise thing to do. As Tholman said, "We felt it was a 'must', since being an integral part of the advanced gaming industry, we owe it to the backgammon players' online community, as well as to ourselves."

Play65 is currently amongst the leading websites for online backgammon and it attracts thousands of backgammon players from all around the world. The full download version of the game offers a wide range of backgammon games and tournaments, such as playing backgammon for free or real money, and it comes in 17 different languages (more languages will be added very soon).
