    Are you kidding me 5dimes?



    God forbid they'd risk losing more than 2 fiddy, their empire couldn't possibly recover from such a devastating loss.

    I am not a 5dimes user, but this looks amateurish. How is it even possible to wager over your limit anyway? This should also be forbidden to limit your wager so low, but I guess we will still have to wait few years more before players will get more protection in this industry. "Pathetic" is the right word for this.

    Yeah, A+ books shouldn't be afraid to take a freakin 5 dollar bet, no matter what sport or league it is.

    5dimes generally only does that to people that they think take shots at bad lines.

    If they just don't want your business they boot you.

    I never took a shot with 5D. Either way they're fukking cowards on par with Bet $3.65. There is no excuse for such a tiny limit.

    They should have the decency to call or email and say they don't want your action. I hope they paid you in full without any withdrawal limits. These new sportsbooks in New Jersey do the same thing. They cut you so low so you just cash out.

    So I asked the support and apparently "The limits you have on the account are the default limits for international customers" and it's a thing for several months now. So if anyone outside of US can confirm that would be great. It's still an embarassment for the book. At least make it $10 lol. BTW my +1400 dog in the OP won straight up.

    they don't want you there. which probably makes you not want to be there. I don't see any problem,now. they should have paid you the balance you had and said they do not want your business,in the 1st place.

    it's 1% of the normal limit (afaik, if I am still at 20%).

    When I asked about it a while back they were straight out talking about the limits, not bullshittin around. "That's where I want you at" or something like that Tony said back then.

    nah, normal limit should be $250, no matter where you come from. I checked earlier on, and for me (as a European) the limit was $50 - but as mentioned, I have been limited to 20% ages ago.

    I can't get it at all. If you don't want an action don't post the line. Anyway 5dimes post's week lines for marketing purpose and limit players all around. Just move on, they don't worth it. Use broker and you'll be fine.
    Gaze73 What is your limits for big markets ?

    this is why they do that

    https://smartbet.io/pages/my-picks?t...ts4value&sorts[pickdate]=0

    these guys tear those books up but you will get shut down in 5 minutes and they usually will let you bet 1 or 2 bucks and in 25 years you can make 15 dollars!

    Well either that or you misunderstood somehow.

    But honestly, you don't want to accept that there is only one reason 5D put people on stupid low limits. And Tony was probably happy that it annoyed you the same way you annoyed him.

    And secondly, if you know so little that you are actually asking people multiple times if everyone outside USA has a 3 buck limit, then you should not be telling anyone else anything about how books work.


    You got penalized for being a shot taker. Accept it.

    As infotimbo explained above, if Tony wanted to limit you for being too sharp, he tells you!

    Due to be being one of the best books in the world who has shown themselves to be trustworthy over more than a decade.

    Consistently being voted the users #1 book over many years shows the rating is right too.

    come on Gaze, $50 bucks, I give $20 tips when I place bets at the counter are you kidding me. Dude if any book ever ever limits you and calls you sharp, I will turn this computer off, put on a dress and a blindfold and walk in traffic until i feel the burn! if being sharp is based on size, you are what sharp is to China and you are Monaco..

    Gaze just bullshittin with you! if anybody calls you sharp brother you tell them to read your posts and they will get cleared up quickly!

    Why do you talk when you know nothing? You keep saying I'm a shot taker even though I said I'm not. Is taking standard pre-game spreads and MLs at standard odds shot taking? Secondly, you assume that Tony personally limits every single account, what kind of BS is that? Last time I checked he's not even alive, and the support said that every international customer has the same shitty limits as I do. So either you're wrong and the support is right or you're both wrong, take your pick. And last but not least, when you're defending a $2.50 limit on an A+ book you just look like a paid shill clown. Seriously, 5Dimes compared to Pinnacle is a C book at best.

    Man, you sound like that Sideloaded guy abusing SBR because google ads kept showing gay hookup ads to him. You don't realize you exposed yourself by posting that ticket. Same as he didn't realize.


    It's fine if you don't realize you have hit a bad line there. Does not surprise me from the rest of what you have said that you would miss that.

    But whether you believe it or not, that's why you have a $2.50 limit on that game.

    Sorry.

    Hey Gaze.

    Just so you don't think I am judging you personally. I had my NASCAR limits dropped to that level after mistakenly hitting a bad line there myself.

    Tony always did it to piss you off, for pissing him off.

    You could try gettign on live chat and asking for Becky and requesting your limits be raised again.

    She will probably tell you exactly what the problem was and ask you to assure them you wont do it again and then raise you limit back up. If it was just a simple mistake once or twice.

    What are you even saying? Are you implying the bet in the OP was a bad line? I wonder what the hell is your definition of a bad line then. Secondly, I've been limited several months ago, so today's bet has nothing to do with it.

    That's exactly what I did, and for the third time she just said that every international player has the same limits and that they cannot be raised. If I really did anything wrong they'd at least give a vague answer that I did something wrong.

    So here's the options. 1. I did something wrong a year ago but they won't tell me what, 2. I didn't do anything wrong, every international customer has the same limits, 3. If #2 is not true, the support was lying, but that doesn't make sense. If #2 is true then the limits are objectively a joke.

    No, I don't mean the bet you posted was a bad line. Just that some time in the past you must have bet a few or hit a really obvious bad one. He never imposed $2.50 limits on sharps. They were punishment and meant to annoy the way they do.


    And did you just speak to CS or actually ask for Becky? She is the boss in there and I think is the only one who can make a decision and/or tell you the exact reason right now AFAIK.
