Online sportsbook 5Dimes (SBR rating A+) has officially added bitcoin to their cashier.

Management confirmed that the test was successful. 5Dimes players who wish to deposit in bitcoin are instructed to contact support at Live Help or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for instructions; currently the process is not automated and may take up to two hours.
The minimum deposit in BTC is equivalent to $100. The maximum deposit is the equivalent of $25,000. There are no fees for BTC deposits.
As mentioned in the initial 5Dimes bitcoin report, the average of the Bid and Ask prices from www.bitstamp.net will be used for currency conversions with USD at the time of each deposit. At this time, wagering is not available in bitcoin.
Exclusive Bitcoin depositors are allowed to cash out free of charge via bitcoin, no limit, subject to availability.
