This is one of the most popular American bookmakers famous for “reduced juice” or high/boosted odds on American leagues. Although their website is not in technologically state of the art and their deposit and withdrawal methods don't allow fast moving of money, they are still luring a great number of American players. Check why in a detailed 5Dimes review bellow.
5Dimes Restricted Countries, Banking and Security
Website is built for US players, but welcomes players from most countries in the world. Only countries that are not accepted in 5Dimes are: Costa Rica, France, Portugal, Hungary, UK and Ukraine. Due to specific banking options, 5Dimes is not as popular in Europe as it is in USA despite it accepts players from EU countries.
For depositing money on their account, there are only the above methods currently available. Money Gram on example, is not usual method of payment outside USA. Good thing is that they accept Bitcoin payments. They can range from 25 up to 10 000 USD. Only usual method of payment is Credit Card payment, but requires authorization form to be sent and approved by their customer service before your funds are deposited.
Withdrawal methods are similar to deposit methods. The only difference is that you can choose a Cashier Check instead of payment back to your Credit Card. All withdrawals must be approved by their relevant department and require additional time to process them into your account. This prolongs processing up to 5 business days. On the other hand, players never complained about not receiving their requested money in the end. 5Dimes made it into our list of top US bookmakers thanks to responsible dealing with players among other things.
5Dimes Sports Betting Bonuses
This part of 5Dimes is also what they are famous for. 5Dimes offers a rich sports betting bonus system. The first we are going to mention is their First Deposit Bonus. They offer a special Free-Plat bonus up to amazing $520. This free play money is a type of Free Bet that is released to your account gradually as you rollover your deposited money. This welcome bonus is not restricted to US customers only. Customers from outside of North America can redeem this bonus also, but only 50% up to $100 in Free-Play money. If you are interested on how to redeem this bonus and play according to terms and conditions, read our special article about it.
This is not the end of your Free-Play money. 5Dimes has also reload bonuses when you deposit again and they are triggered when you deposit between $100 and $2500. The maximum reload Free-Play bonus amount depends on deposit method you use. Free-Play money is also awarded gradually in amounts on $10 as you proceed with your betting activity.
Besides these bonuses, you get a Cash Back bonus up to 20% which is calculated from your net losses. This can be triggered twice a year and to redeem it, you have to contact their customer service. There is also EXTRA Cash Back reward of 10%. Simply make a deposit ranging from $50 up to $1000 using any of accepted deposit methods and then contact 5Dimes customer service to request your extra 10% Cash Reward to be applied to your account. Customers outside North America can redeem this Cash Back for deposits up to $250.
In the end, if you somehow managed to lose all your first 7 deposits plus reward amount you received already, your 8th and 9th deposit are on the house. That's right, you just have to contact them to check if you lost all your 7 deposits and they will award you a couple of free ones. The only trick is that deposits made prior to registering to this promotion do not count towards 8th deposit on the House.
5Dimes Review – Sportsbook
Reduced juice is a type of promotion, but in the same time a characteristic of 5Dimes' sportsbook. Reduced Juice means increased odds. This promotion is available on all American leagues in all major American sports. Using Reduced Juice option, you get one of the best odds available on American sports on the planet. This is also what is 5Dimes famous for and why their sportsbook is actually attractive. But, if you are from Europe, or just used to have a great choice in markets and matches from non-American leagues, you might find 5Dimes' sportsbook not attractive enough.
- 5Dimes Pre-match
Pre-match offer is wide in number of offered sports. Number of offered events and markets on these events are another story. 5Dimes is typically American conservative about other leagues besides American ones. This is not a big flaw if you are American and interested in only American sports as the majority of their bettors are. On the other hand, if you are not American and interested in having an account where you can wager on the best odds in American sports, then 5Dimes is still a good choice for you.
- 5Dimes Live
Live coverage is not the greatest we have seen to be honest. Big accent is again on American sports and only main markets. Moneyline, over/under and spread is what you will find from available markets. Americans have similar preference to Asians meaning that they concentrate only on most important lines. This is all built on a website that is a bit outdated, so doesn't give the best betting experience to a spoiled bettor. For other ones, live betting is good enough as it is functional and user friendly.
5Dimes Sportsbook Features
The only additional feature for sports betting fans is the Bet Builder. This is a special service where you can build your own line on which you want to wager and wager exactly $25 on it. If your bet from Bet Builder loses, $5 will be credited back into your account. The other feature built for sportsbook is DynamicLines feature, but we didn't find much value added by this feature to present it in full.
5Dimes Review Conclusion
Yes, their website looks probably worse than ours - it screams for a technological improvement and yes we are not satisfied by only betting on American sports anymore. But, despite these and other small flaws, 5Dimes remains near the very top of American bookmakers. It has it's charm, it has amazing odds on American sports and it has a massive reward system that cares not only about new customers, but continues to follow you while you enjoy wagering your favorite teams. We recommend 5Dimes not only to hardcore Americans, but also to fans of betting on American sport all around the world.
