Dear players from Russia! You must be aware what is going on and that paid apps and in-app purchases in AppStore and PlayStore using bank card payment are not possible within borders of Russian Federation.
Fortunately, there is another payment method using mobile phone. It can be used to make purchases in AppStore (store for iPhone, iPad, Mac). If you haven’t enabled it yet, do so now.
We’ve prepared a tutorial below:
Firstly, open “Settings”.
2. Tap on “Payment & Shipping”.
3. Tap on “Add Payment Method”.
4. Tap on “Mobile Phone”
5. Tap “Submit”
If there are any added cards in the “Payment method” section, we suggest removing them, since you can’t use them for purchases anyway and they can prevent purchase via “Mobile Phone” method. To do this tap on each card and remove it.
Please note that current method works for MTS, Beeline, MegaFon и YOTA. APPLE documentation also indicates Tele2, but we haven’t been able to confirm it. Please try it out, maybe it will work for you. Please also note that upon making the purchase you have to have the necessary credit on Mobile Phone balance. Topping up mobile balance can be easily done in mobile application of any bank.
Thank you and stay safe!
? Dear Android ? users, we apologize for a long waiting, but currently it doesn’t depend on us. We made a temporary solution for those Android users who are experiencing a problem with the update. If you are one, please, download the updated app from the link below.
Here is a short instruction on how to install the app.
We are pleased to announce that work on update 1.7.60 is completed! ?
The update required lots of work and includes mostly technical improvements, which, while hidden from the players’ eyes, are incredibly important. Firstly, we developed a new mechanism for working with game resources (graphics, sounds) and updating them. The app has increased in size upon starting (when downloaded from the AppStore); however, it carries necessary resources. When connecting to the server, resources will not be downloaded fully, but only when something has been changed. This applies to iOS and macOS versions; for Android, nothing has changed.
We also added a new friend invite system. Now it pays to have friends! Invite friends and play together! The friend invite button can be found in two places: in the friend’s section of the game lobby and in the “Bonus coins” section of the shop. This section will contain all possible ways to get additional coins. We also updated the graphics of the shop. Hopefully, you will like it! For each invited friend who hasn’t played “Backgammon Masters” before, the player will get 1000 gold coins and the invited friend – 500 gold coins.
We also fixed tons of both major and minor bugs. We have improved the technical part of the project, preparing it for future updates that will enhance the gaming experience and add many new and exciting things.
We are always with you! Keep following the news. ?
