I'm with Peu
It took me a long time to really be sure, because I was thinking it was just sour grapes on my part, but I think there are some irregularities.
I play on level 3 with doubling on. After it offers a double (which for the non-players means that it offers to double the points that this game is worth, nothing to do with rolling a double), it rolls a high double about two-thirds of the time! Chances of any double are 1/6.
My developing theory is that it generates its roll without displaying it, decides if it wants to double, then displays the roll after I've accepted the offer.
To check if it generally gets better dice (I wonder about that too) someone would need to do a frequency analysis, but to analyse the throw after it offers a double would be a much easier option. Anyone about to do a long flight want to have a go?
I think it cheats and I've played the game for 30 years easy.
Adikus backgammon cheating. Confirmed
That's the thing.
In backgammon, unlike other games there is a combination of luck and strategy.
It's really hard to program a decision making upon your "luck".
So to make it realistic as possible, they CHEAT.
I've played this game on an old iPhone and it was a but slow.
And when it's slow, you can see sometimes after a dice roll it rolls again for a fraction of a second and come up with a diferent score for what it needs.
Also in 90% of the time , right after he chalanges you to a double, he will get an exact akward score to eat you.
Another prove- if you look at the statistic under setting you will see that you and the iPhone have gotten almost an equel number if doubles if each number BUT when you get the doubles is the question!!!
In 70% of the time I get doubles when I have 1 player left to take out and the double didn't really help me while the iPhone will get doubles at any time and sometimes 2-3 times in a row , coming up with a win from an impossible situation to win at.
Also I agree that playing a higher lvl will mostly will give the iPhone better rolls rather than better strategy.
