5Dimes Casino & Sportsbook has existed for over 15 years were considered quite the leader in the sports booking world. Sadly things have changed somewhat and they have taken a fall from grace. For starters their website is very out-dated and although the design is very simple it is still quite confusing to new players. The downloadable betting software itself is not much better to look at, but thankfully it is quite functional. The site can be accessed through mobile devices but the design was not optimised for such small browsing windows and will have to resize the screen often.
The 5Dimes Group is located in Costa Rica where payment controls have sometimes fallen below standards. They have limited deposit methods and don’t even support popular options like Skrill, Neteller or even PayPal. They do support Bitcoin though.
The customer support is also lacking due to the various standards of training that the operators receive where a number of them have been reported to be unfriendly and take time to respond. They are contactable via telephone or live chat but the slowest method would be email and you will have to wait a few days. On the upside they do not leave any query unresolved.
5Dimes offers an incentive on their sports betting events which is called Reduced Juice. It is usually offered on the day of the event and what it means is you are paying a reduced wagering amount when compared to other sports betting facilities. For example if standard odds are to wager $110 to gain $100 they may ask you to only wager $105 which is a savings of 50%. These amounts really do add up over time especially considering the number of sports and seasons available. Be aware that new players take up a deposit bonus not have access to the Reduced Juice offerings.
To activate it simply log onto the 5Dimes Sportsbook and find the "Straight & RIF" option. For each sport look at the window on the right and click "Reduced" to open up a table of available options. Do note that Reduced Juice restricts the maximum wager to $500.
Games at 5Dimes
They have a mini games section with various versions of video poker, slots and solitaire. Solitaire versions include All or Nothing, Unlimited Vegas and Vegas Solitaire. This slots selection is not as extensive as other casinos but it still has plenty enough to entertain everyone. Horseracing is still fairly popular and is most definitely supported here.
And let’s not forget other table classics like baccarat, roulette, craps and poker.
