You would think it would be easy to deposit funds at an online sportsbook but that all depends on the book. 5Dimes makes the process easy because they offer a variety of ways to get your money into their system, so there is little delay in getting in on the action. Unlike other online sportsbooks we have reviewed, 5Dimes does not charge a fee for credit card deposits, with a $50 minimum and $500 maximum deposit available 24 hours a day. Person-to-person deposits can be made from 9:00 AM to 10:00 PM Monday through Saturday and 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM on Sunday with fees attached to that method of $500 or less. Cashier checks, money orders, and bank wires are also accepted.

Digital currency such as Bitcoin is also welcomed at 5Dimes and can be deposited any time, day or night, with as little as $25 to get you started or as much as $10,000 if you’re a big shooter. Regardless of which method suits you the best, 5Dimes makes it easy to get started and gets you in the game with little or no waiting depending on how you fund your account.

Getting paid separates the contenders from the pretenders in the world of online sports gaming. Companies that have decades of experience don’t exist unless their customers are getting their payout requests in a timely fashion, which is why 5Dimes has been in business for over 20 years. It is the single most important criteria when evaluating an online sportsbook because cashing out some, or all, of your winnings, is the endgame.


Bitcoin withdrawals and sportsbook transfers incur no fees, however, bank wires, cashier’s checks, and money orders can all have fees associated with those methods. 5Dimes customer support can avail you of those charges when you decide to cash out. We have vetted their withdrawal system and found that the process is easy, and most importantly, your money is safe when you transact with 5Dimes.

    Customer Service

    Does 5Dimes Offer Customer Service Options?

    Customer service can be reached either by telephone, live chat on the site, or by email. The first two are virtually immediate and all our emails were answered on the same day they were sent. You can reach 5Dimes Customer Support at 1-800-430-5896, but that is just one of several numbers depending on the nature of your inquiry.

    There are three 800 numbers for general support, three for sports wagering, two for horse wagering, and one for new accounts. In total, 5Dimes has nine toll-free customer service phone numbers which we found is unparalleled in the industry. They can also be reached via email at info@5Dimes.eu. Customer service is open 24 hours, seven days a week, and always available to answer any question.

    New Account Bonuses

    Does 5Dimes Offer Bonuses?

    5Dimes clients may choose from the following account plans when creating their account:

    1. Reduced Juice: Don't overpay on bookmaking commissions. Save money on every wager.
    2. Free-play, MatchPlay & Lotto rewards: Conventional free play based rewards (up to 50%).
    3. Cash Back Rewards: Up to 20% Cash Back. Extra 10% Cash Back Reward
    4. 30% Super Saver: Receive -107 pricing and expanded parlay payouts.
    5. Point Mover Special Reward Program
    6. Casino Rebates Rewards Program
    7. On the House Reward Program
    8.  Free Payout Rewards Program

    Virtually all of the online sportsbooks in the marketplace offer bonuses of some sort but we have found that the top-tier books normally don’t have a vast array of bonus programs because they don’t have to use gimmicks to lure potential customers to their sites. Reputation alone is enough for most seasoned bettors to do business with them because they know their funds are safe and a payout is just a call away.


    However, we found 5Dimes’ bonus programs to be more aggressive and lucrative than most of the company they keep at the elite end of the sports betting market. New players to 5Dimes will be allowed their reduced juice program which simply means the vigorish is lowered on wagers placed. That can add up to quite a bit of money for customers who bet big, or often, or both. In addition, new customers can earn rewards of up to $520 depending on how much they deposit.


    5Dimes has a wide array of bonus and rewards programs that cater to new and existing customers. There is also a cash-back program which ranges from 10 to 20 percent on overall losses. Also, note that there is a multitude of bonus programs at their casino, while horseplayers get up to nine percent cash back daily on overall betting volume. The programs do change from time to time and with so many to choose from, there is one that is right for you.

    Summary

    Why is 5Dimes a Trusted Sports Betting Site?

    Unless you are brand spanking new to the world of online sports betting, there is little doubt you have at least a vague knowledge of 5Dimes. You will see their odds quoted on any number of sites because they have a longstanding reputation in the industry as one of the oldest, and most trusted, sports betting websites in the world. Operating since 1998, 5Dimes is a brand unto itself and they do the one thing that separates the notorious from the sublime…they pay.


    Getting paid from a sportsbook when you win would, at first blush, appear to be a given, and fundamental to the relationship between customer and sportsbook. While that assumption is completely valid, it is not reality when engaging with many of those claiming to be legitimate sportsbooks. The internet is the wild, wild, west of anything ranging from prescription drugs to sports gambling and if you’re unsure of who, or what, you are dealing with then it’s caveat emptor – buyer beware.


    But you are doing exactly what any educated consumer should do - your homework. And that’s where we come into the picture. We vetted 5Dimes to see if what we had read, and the polling data we had culled, was accurate compared to the litany of online sportsbooks we have reviewed in the past. Like any industry, there is good and bad, and our function is to experience the online books for ourselves and essentially render a judgment as to where they fall on the spectrum. As previously stated, there are only a handful of truly elite sportsbooks and below we will explain why 5Dimes belongs in this rarified air.

    Sports Betting Options Available at 5Dimes

    The average guy, or girl, looking to bet a few bucks on a game rightfully expects that the basics are covered when dealing with any sportsbook. After all, if only certain sports are being dealt, and only major games within those sports are offered, then the pickings are slim and it’s time to look for another place to do business. You will have no such complaints when dealing with 5Dimes, and as a matter of fact, their offerings are as extensive as any online sportsbook we have reviewed. There is a menu befitting any sports betting appetite at 5Dimes with the NFL, college football, NBA, college basketball, MLB, NHL, and soccer among the main areas of interest. But that doesn’t even begin to cover the expanse and variety offered as MMA, boxing, golf, tennis, motor racing, horse racing, cricket, rugby, volleyball, snooker, and even E-Sports is on their betting slate. 5Dimes runs the gamut from political races all the way to competitive eating contests!


    Now that we have the betting options covered, it’s time to explain what we found in terms of the types of wagers that can be placed. Flat bets, where the bettor makes a wager on a single team or total to cover the point spread, is plain old vanilla betting yet it is the foundation of any sportsbook. However, 5Dimes ups the ante and readily accepts exotic bets like parlays, round robins, teasers, pleasers, and in-game live wagering to name a few. This is a sportsbook that allows customers to buy points on flat bets, and exotics, and even has a specially designed bonus called The Point Mover Program for those who avidly play teasers of all shapes and sizes.


    The experienced recreational sports bettor, or the seasoned professional, is aware of the terminology and what it means. But if you are new to the game, don’t worry, because 5Dimes has a crackerjack customer service team that is well educated on the myriad of wagers available and will gladly walk you through it, if you have questions. Newbies shouldn’t let the advanced betting features offered at 5Dimes intimidate because they are there if you want them but can be ignored if you don’t. In short, betting options are one of the hallmarks of an elite online sportsbook and 5Dimes has the market cornered in that regard.

    5Dimes Betting Limits

    Depending on their niche in the market, online sportsbooks will usually cater to small, recreational bettors or seasoned pros who bet big and bet often. But once again, 5Dimes is unique, in that a bet as small as 50 cents or as big as $5000 depending on the sport is accepted. Live in-game wagering is normally limited to a maximum of $500.

    5Dimes Mobile Betting

    5Dimes puts betting in the palm of your hand with their mobile online platform that is strikingly similar to the desktop version. And it is that familiarity which allows a first-time user to easily navigate without much of a learning curve if any. Android users, as well as those who use iPhones, Blackberries, Windows Mobile phones, and tablets all run effortlessly on the 5Dimes Mobile app with no download required.

    5Dimes Casino and Racebook

    Although this review revolves primarily around the 5Dimes sportsbook, we would be remiss if we didn’t share our thoughts on their casino, poker room, and racebook peripherals. Let’s begin with the online casino. Unlike many of the elite sportsbooks, 5Dimes actually has quite a few casino games and slots offered. There are over 200 casino games in total and 90 unique slot games which is a staggering number for a site that is renowned for its sportsbook. Furthermore, video poker, baccarat, roulette, craps, and several different blackjack games are also all available for your betting pleasure. Live versions of blackjack, roulette, and baccarat can be found as well.


    Oftentimes we have seen less reputable sportsbooks try to compensate for their shoddy business practices by focusing on its online casino where the returns are far more lucrative and can be guaranteed. Such is not the case at 5Dimes as they have independent audits to ensure the integrity of the games and that the payout percentages are fair. Freerolls and bonuses are ubiquitous in the casino and can be found by visiting the casino section of the site or by inquiring with customer service. 5Dimes’ platform even supports a bingo and lottery section.


    The poker room at 5Dimes allows head-to-head competition and stacks up nicely against other online poker sites. We found the action to be busier on the weekends than the weekdays but the graphics are solid and navigating around this section, like the sportsbook, is a breeze.

    There is also a racebook section at 5Dimes for those who enjoy the ponies. There are plenty of tracks to choose from and races can be viewed on not one, but two racebook options on the site. A cash rebate bonus of up to nine percent is available on total daily bet volume at the racebook.
