5Dimes Sportsbook Review
5Dimes.com emerged into the online sportsbook scene in 1998. Founded by former pro gambler turned entrepreneur Tony Gonzalez and licensed in Costa Rica, 5Dimes Sportsbook has made its mark on the betting community with a vast selection of lines and the availability of at least 1,000 wagering options every day. Although catering to all sports bettors, it is especially popular amongst sharps for accepting larger bets than much of the competition.
5Dimes Sportsbook Reputation: 3.9/5
5Dimes.com has quietly and consistently earned a solid reputation in the online gaming industry. Their payouts are steady, fast and secure, the betting options are extensive and their bonuses rival most of the top sports betting sites online today.
Sharps and new players alike co-exist at 5Dimes.com as they accept wagers as low as $1 per game all the way up to $5,000 plus. Most bettors agree that the lack of extra bells and whistles doesn't take anything away from this hard charging industry leader.
5Dimes Sportsbook Bonuses / Value: 3.8/5
5Dimes.com gives new players a 50% free play on initial deposits that has a ten times roll over requirement. Bettors receive a percentage of the bonus with each rollover. They also offer a 20% free play on subsequent deposits of $250 or more with a five times roll over rate.
5Dimes.com offers one of the best Reduced Juice programs of any sportsbook. Unlike many sites that offer reduced juice on a few games or limited sports, just about anything you can bet at 5Dimes has some sort of Reduced Juice offering.
The member rewards and promotions are extensive and include New Player Rewards, Reload Rewards, Cash Back Rewards and Super Parlay Rewards.
At the 5Dimes Horse Racebook, members have the option to choose from 165 racetracks including major tracks like Arlington, Belmont and Santa Anita. With action on minor events as well as the big races like the Belmont Stakes, Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes, 5Dimes.com has the Triple Crown covered.
As is generally standard amongst sports betting sites 5Dimes also boasts an online poker room with a full range of poker games such as the popular Texas Hold’em. Existing members receive some juicy bonuses when depositing to their poker account.
5Dimes also features four separate casinos: The Jackpot Casino, The Bonus Casino, The Cash Back Casino and The Match Play Casino. With features that include 25% cashback on weekly losses, a large game selection including Baccarat, Blackjack, Craps, Roulette and slot machines aren’t all you have to get excited about here. To keep the action going, the 5Dimes Casino offers a different Bonus Reward six days a week.
5Dimes Sportsbook $$$ / Security: 3.8/5
Although 5Dimes have a good track record when it comes to timely payouts, troll the sportsbook forums and it is easy to find a few blips on the radar. However, it should be noted that this has been the case for 99% of online sportsbooks at one point or another.
In terms of account security, all funds are secure and account information is up to standard regulation with its RSA approved 1024 bit key SSL encryption.
5Dimes has an extensive list of available deposit options that include Click2Pay, most major credit cards, money transfers, Gold-Pay, InstaDebit and Moneybookers. As long as the account information is correct, most credit card deposits give instant authorization, so you can make that bet you’ve been waiting to place for the big game.
For most withdrawal methods, 5Dimes sets their minimum withdrawals at $50 dollars unless players are requesting to be paid out via courier. Minimum courier payouts with FedEX are for 501$ and regular mail is $100. Payouts can equally be requested through Neteller, Click2Pay, GoldPay, InstaDebit and Moneybookers.
As a special member perk, 5Dimes allows players one free withdrawal every 30 days. However over-limit withdrawal fees can go up to $40 in some cases, so be careful. Withdrawals are processed from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM ET in most cases.
5Dimes Sportsbook Customer Service: 3.5/5
When registering an account at 5Dimes the process is quick and seamless, prompting players to enter the all of the usual information before providing players with a user name and password. 5Dimes account log in details arrive in a Welcome email within seconds, a nice touch.

We found connection to the live operator to be instant and helpful. They have separate toll-free lines for sports, horse racing, and general customer service.

5Dimes Sportsbook Software / Website: 4/5
Although functionally clean, the 5Dimes interface leaves something to be desired when compared to some of the more recognized mainstream online sportsbooks. However, reliability is not a factor with an up to 99.93% uptime. Sometimes not being the “big guy” can be a good thing; when you want to place a bet on Superbowl or lay a bet on March Madness, you won’t need to worry about as many people potentially crashing the site’s servers.
