5 Dimes Review

GamblersBase REVIEW of 5 Dimes

An online sports-book that welcomes large players and offers attractive reward programs for smaller players.  5Dimes offers great variety of original betting lines for nearly every sporting event.

In addition to good betting lines they’re very reliable.

As mentioned, their customer support is sometimes slow to respond but they’ve been processing money transactions fast and without unresolved complaints for over 15 years now – that kind of a track record is not just impressive but makes you feel as safe as can be about depositing money to the site.

Online Casino

5Dimes is best-known for its sportsbook but its online casino deserves praise as well due to its low house edge percentages relative to the industry. In fact, 5Dimes has a beatable variation of video poker (beatable only if you play with perfect strategy) as its return is 100.2%. Considering the tiny house edge percentage and the maximum bet size of x dollars, you won’t get rich with the game but it’s much better than losing money.

Actually, 5Dimes has three casinos, all with different games and different promotions. It’s a little confusing, yes, but then again you have some variety. Here’s a brief introduction to each of the casinos they have to offer:

Grand Casino

Grand Casino has a sufficient variety of casino games – for example, seven variations of blackjack (21, Shut ‘Em Up, Perfect Pairs, European, Face Up, Match Play, Pontoon and Super 21), over 90 unique slot machine games, 14 variations of video poker, and more.

The mobile version of Grand Casino offers 23 casino games (one keno game, one roulette game, two blackjack games and the rest of them are slots).

Bonus Casino

Bonus Casino claims to have the highest payouts (or at least “higher than most online casinos”), and for certain games they do. The standard payout in roulette is 1.00 times the bet size; the bonus casino, on the other hand, offers a 1.09x payout, and on Wednesdays from 2:00PM till 8:00PM, a 1.11x payout. If you’re going to play roulette online, this is the game to play.

MatchPlay Casino

The third 5Dimes casino is called “MatchPlay”. It fails to make a good case for its existence (since they already have two casinos) – MatchPlay Casino has less games than Grand Casino and worse payouts than Bonus Casino. Still, it exists and is as playable as the other two casinos.

Money Transactions

Players have reported successful deposits with VISA debit and pre-paid cards (it matters which VISA card you’re using, by the way; for example, Netspend pre-paid cards have been recommended by many while Vanilla Visa seems to fail more often than not). Credit card deposits are a hit or a miss.

Moneygram cashouts are still allowed while Western Union cashouts have been discontinued. You’re allowed to make one free Moneygram withdrawal per month and it has to be done on Mondays between 8AM and 11AM EST – otherwise the only US-friendly cashout option is a check which takes around 2 weeks for customers to receive right now (a decent processing time although not on You-Wagers level).

Bitcoin is a recent addition to 5Dimes’ US-friendly banking methods. I don’t know anyone who has bitcoin and actually spends the currency (however, I know a few who look at it as an investment of some sort and seem determined to hold on to the currency forever) but this addition should be convenient for those who do.

You also need to verify your account by providing 5Dimes with a picture of your driver’s license or recent utility bill or both.

Customer Service

For such an experienced and well-known gambling operation, I find it surprising how 5Dimes’ customer support is sometimes slow and often unfriendly. You rarely get basic greetings (“Hello”, “How Can I Help You”, “You’re Welcome”) and if you try to contact them via e-mail, you may have to wait for a couple of days.

The best way to contact is live chat. They have a long history of not leaving issues unresolved even if you may not get the friendliest reply.


Whenever you have a site that’s been popular and reliable for well over a decade, you can do a lot worse. In fact, I rank this site as the second best option in the US right behind You-Wager. For sports bettors, I recommend before any other site since it consistently provides great betting lines and has a wide variety of games and bets.
