During the course of the game, a player who feels they have sufficient advantage over the other player may propose doubling his stakes. This may be done only at the start of their turn, and before rolling the die.

When a player is offered to double the wager they can refuse but this means that the backgammon game is won but the player making the offer and the original stake must be payed to them.

The player accepts the doubling of the stakes becomes owner of the doubling cube and only they may make the next double with the cube.
