5Dimes Sportsbook Review
If 5Dimes were a movie, it would be one of those critically acclaimed surprises from a small-budget production shop.
5dimes has been around since 1998, the infancy of the online sportsbook space, and continues to be one of those quiet success stories. No big fanfare, no big marketing budget, no big-name actors – just like that small-budget movie with a solid cast and crew that produces a winning flick.
Never one to cause much of a stink with a customer service blunder or a wild bonus, 5Dimes has built a reputation on unique bet types, high limits and lightning-fast payouts in an industry where slow-paying is the norm.
Literally thousands of wager types are available everyday follow an industry-leading 5-cent overnight baseball line. It’s one of those unique betting opportunities that endear 5dimes to its loyal customer base and differentiate it from other sportsbooks that appear to be carbon copies of each other in terms of betting options.
Other examples include the availability of 15-team parlays for recreational bettors anxious to try longshot bets and teasers up to 20 points. They also offer MLB run lines up to 2.5 runs on both sides, another industry rarity.
For the new bettor, 5dimes provides a basic but functional platform that makes it easy to navigate from signup to wager. In addition, some aggressive, albeit slightly confusing, bonus options are available for first-time customers, such as 50% matchplay rewards.
In addition, a channel for skill games and a popular a lottery room offer something for the more casual gamer who is not a sports bettor.
New sports bettors who are drawn by glitz and stylish websites might be fooled into ignoring 5Dimes.com. The site is functional, but lacks design polish that might elevate it to the upper echelons of overall experience.
Which is not to say 5Dimes shies away from the spotlight immediately. The company promotes its services on some of the web’s largest and most expensive sports portals and has its odds displayed on other mainstream sites.
But just like that small-budget movie, 5Dimes continues to quietly provide an excellent product with professional customer experience.
