    Sammy you don't have to have a crystal ball to know what the future holds for them...all you gotta do is take a quick look at their updated Funding page and you can easily put two and two together:

    crap if they keep deciding to change rules on bets after theyve been settled . Already have withdrawn over half of what I had in there

    Never had 1 issue. Been paid the next day forever.

    Their customer service people are braindead, but that goes for every customer service on the planet.

    owned and run by the fairest guy in the business. he may seem hard to deal with from time to time but has to with so many trying to take advantage of bad lines, chargebacks, all the tricks that people employ to try to put one over on him or his operation. if he is wrong (rarely) he will make it right.

    "100% dissipated", no. But still relatively safe and I have funds there-it's my favorite out. IMO, Cris Books (i.e. Bookmaker) are the surest bet for US players if safety is paramount for you.

    My concern with 5D is that they won't do the right thing if the crap really hits the fan. I just don't see Tony putting players' interests before his. Just my 2 cents.

    I don't fuk with 5Ds anymore. They made an error to my account and ended up charging me for their bullshit mistake. Talked to Tony and no avail. I ended up paying for their incompetence. I still have money in that account but they can kiss my ass. Too many other books to work with versus all their stupid errors, website crashes, bad lines, etc.

    5 Dimes has to stay on top of their game because other solid books right behind them now

    Bitcoin books have changed things

    Best JJ post I've read since joining. Truest of all statements. Sucks if you're a big better I'm sure but that's the risk you take. 5ds seems pretty solid. I don't know h they handle pros or winners but never seen any complaints on here or elsewhere

    I deposited $250 about 2 months ago. Available balance at $2,800 anything I should be worried about here? I've had no issues usually only get limited on property bets at time other then the no issues what so ever.

    Not really... how much does $2.8K 'mean' to you ? What % of all offshore $$$ ?

    Yes I actually really like 5 dimes just thought I'd ask since it looks like a few people are concerned about using the website. Thanks guys.

    The good news...they've been around for 20 years. The bad news...their web site is essentially unchanged. I'd have to imagine they are doing fine financially (they limit anyone with a clue), but I would not leave a large balance there -- or with any other US-facing book for that matter.

    5 dimes dropped out of a major poker network to push their own the grand network. It aint grand. So in online poker their used to be shark tank is a gold fish bowl. Their casino 100% sucks balls. As they dont like skilled winners there. Hell no. And to get a quick bitcoin withdrawal from them. One needs to zero their account. And make 4 separate bircoin deposits to be come a 5 dimes real bitcoin player. Fukkin bullshit site. I deposited with v..i...s...a..debit card to ignition casino/ poker with american dollars. No bitcoin deposit ever there. And withdrew my winnings into a bitcoin wallet with about a 6 hour turnaround. Now thats a top poker room. Not 5 dimes gold fish bowl poker. 5 dimes shit book way behind the times. Not meeting the needs of their customers.

    It really concerns me that 5D needs 3-4 days to pay by Bitcoin, especially when deposits get credited w/i minutes. A+ Books should be able to pay same day by this method, next day at worst.

    Tony is an arrogant I***t, with whom is not worth to chat.
    They have limited me, asking for Tony, wanted to know the reason (not making much withdrawals, only one!! winning not so much, circa $2000 in 1 year!!) - he said: "because i can"... Afterwards i have withdrawal all my money, because i can place $10 now on normal odds (1.909)

    Something tells me you attracted that response for some reason...you're not telling the whole story I'm sure
