Here is what some experts say about XG Mobile and eXtreme Gammon:
- ★ - NEIL KAZAROSS (5 times American Backgammon Tour Winner, Backgammon Giant #3): "I can now state that XG is stronger than its competitors on equivalent settings as well as at least several times faster on those settings."
- ★ - MOCHIZUKI MASAYUKI (2009 World Champion, Backgammon Giant #2): "I like eXtreme Gammon very much. I truly believe this program is the strongest bot in the world."
- ★ - MICHIHITO KAGEYAMA (Runner up in the 2012 World Championship, Backgammon Giant #4): "[...] this time I took only my iPad at the Backgammon World Championship 2012.
