    5dimes Down...

    Edit by SBR Admin: There was a brief period of 5Dimes downtime after midnight ET but all is working as normal now. Please report if you see any issues.

    Has been down for over an hour, and looks like the site was completely pulled, not just an error.

    People on Twitter are thinking they took the money and ran after World Series. Hope that isn't the case.

    Betislands would be child's play compared to this if SHTF.

    I've only bet with them once, but their software drove me nuts never letting me enter a risk amount and always defaulted to the entry being a "to-win" amount. Also wasn't a fan that they shorted me in the exchange rate when depositing by Bitcoin so I've mainly stuck to Nitrogen and BetOnline.

    smart man, many of us here where critical of them, but many posts and threads about them would be deleted by sbr, and people would get banned just by posting a negative experience

    Difference is that they warned you a few hours before it was happening and it wasn't right after the world series where payout needs to happen...

    part of me hopes that its just maintenance, so that people don't lose their money, the other part hopes they are gone, it would be mind blowing

    anyway the fact that people are so quick to think they are gone is just proof that they have burned through any goodwill they had and people dont trust them any more

    Anyone who is not beyond their bank's statute of limitations for reversals should absolutely do one. However, if you like the book, I'd give it some time to make sure this isn't just a technical issue first. Otherwise, you'll find yourself on the outs if/when they come back.

    I understand that it could be maintenance, and I pray to god that it is. But the error messages are different than what I normally get when 5dimes is down for a little bit, it's like a full fledged server and site wipe it seems like. And it's been down a long time now. And the phone lines are down. And right after the world series where maybe they got killed in futures or something... I don't know. It just seems very scary and fishy. Complete silence from them too.

    If this actually happens, it would change the online betting landscape forever, and cost bettors probably hundreds of millions of dollars. Fukk.

    Maybe just took the server down so that they can calculate everything? Also it's possible they don't want to take any action on anything tonight? Maybe just want to take a night to get their figures down and start fresh?

    i don't know if dimes is that big u might be giving them too much credit but change the landscape 100 pct who's going to trust off shore again if they fold but it's early could just be a hack or something or maybe costa rica govt shut them down for not paying enough fees

    Has anyone legitimately been screwed out of their money there? Seems like most errors people complain about are hitting bad lines. I'm hoping for the best. although sometimes rude, they have always been pretty fair on my end.
