Online Backgammon gambling derives from the game known as the oldest in history. Through time, and generation after generation backgammon has been played by gamblers. We could even go back to the time of ancient Persian, Greek, Roman and Egyptian civilizations. Backgammon was initially played on wood surfaces as studies of excavations have shown. Stones and bones were also used as markers and dice. According to historians and analysts on the matter it has been tracked that objects used for games that come close to backgammon go back to 3000 B.C
The beginning of online backgammon gambling in modern times is determined by the induction of the doubling cube. It was first applied to the game in the 1920s in NY City. The cube improved the skill issue in backgammon gambling and at the same time enhanced the popularity of the activity.
The backgammon regulations and rules were changed to the actual ones in 1931. In the 1970s backgammon caught the eye of the general public. Approximately 30 years ago Prince Alexis Obolensky was credited for putting together the first backgammon World Championships that took place in Bahamas. Also, the online backgammon bestseller “Backgammon: The Action Game” was published by him.
