Who are they?

With the self-professed slogan of bringing the ‘Las Vegas atmosphere right to your home,’ 5dimes are an online sportsbook, casino, racebook, poker room and lottery room that was set up in Costa Rica in 1996 and specialises in off-shore wagering options for the US (and worldwide) market, delivered with a distinct American flavour.

New Customers Only. 18+. T&Cs Apply. Wagering Requirements Apply.

Why should I bet with this bookmaker?

The sportsbook has a great combination of competitive odds/lines, plentiful markets, nice promotions and rewards schemes and a safe, honest and secure reputation of delivering. For US customers is also a rare example of a safe online betting/wagering option.

 Why shouldn’t I bet with this bookmaker?

 It isn’t the flashiest platform you have ever seen (especially compared to some of the bigger European and Asian sportsbooks), and for European-focused sports and markets it is not the go-to. However, the platform’s dedication to simplicity and American markets are fair explanations for these two criticisms. Also, as with all American-focused sportsbooks, be careful of ‘juice,’ which is basically a commission you pay on winnings – something not normal with traditional bookmakers on the other side of the Atlantic or in Asia.

And be aware, this service is NOT AVAILABLE in the UK & France.

Current sign-up bonus

Interestingly, 5Dimes run a sign-up bonus that can be selected upon opening a new customer account, and these include conventional rewards bonuses, reduced commission rates (juice) and free wagers/bets. Customers simply select the option they want upon opening their account.

How to activate the sign-up bonus

Opt-in to the bonus scheme you want upon opening a customer account.

 

Other noteworthy specials

Despite the fact ‘juice’ is paid on all winning bets (commission fees), 5Dimes offers regular ‘reduced’ juice’ options.

The racebook offers every-day cash rebates of up to 9% on your daily bet volume (win or lose).

 

Sports and markets available

In line with the sportsbook’s slogan of ‘over 100 wagering options every day’ the markets offered are plentiful and full of variety, and in-play betting is offered too. The types of wagers and markets offered vary greatly from the usual European and Asian style of betting, so good advice is to visit here for a rundown on what to expect at this sportsbook – www.5dimes.eu/sb_wagertypes.html

 

Special features

A nice innovative feature on the platform is the ‘betting contest’ which offers prizes to customers with the most significant winning streaks. Another major plus for this sportsbook is the comprehensive stats centre available on NFL, NBA, NCAAF, NCAAB, MLB, NHL, CFL, WNBA, NASCAR and soccer. Also available is the ‘dynamiclines’ feature which allows customers to display the lines they want by a number of different filters including ‘most popular’ and ‘about to go off.’

 

Support Functions

There are all the usual options of phone, email and live chat, and English and Spanish languages are available.

 

Payment Options

The sportsbook only operates in US Dollars and Bitcoin, and the only deposit/withdrawal options available are Visa, Mastercard, Bitcoin, and person-to-person transfer. Deposits can also be made directly from other participating sportsbooks. Be aware that on the 5dimes.eu site the minimum deposit is $50.

 

Verdict

4/5 – There is no doubting that this is an incredibly impressive and thorough sportsbook, but the system of wagering here may be extremely unfamiliar to non-American bettors and this can of course put many people off. However, if you do decide to venture down the line of betting in a more ‘American’ way, which can be a fun experience, there is no doubting that 5Dimes is the place to do it.
