With a name like 5Dimes it’s no doubt clear from the offset that this online sportsbook has its sights (and indeed sites) set on bettors from the Americas, rather than Europe. Established in Costa Rica, 5Dimes launched as an online casino in 1996, and has since gone on to add the full range of betting entertainment – online bingo, lottery, poker and, or course, sportsbook – to its services, making it a convenient one-stop shop to enjoy with the convenience of a single player account.

Layout & Usability
5Dimes doesn’t reveal itself fully until you actually login, so on first acquaintance it can seem a little unexciting in its presentation. However it does tempt with the offer of plenty of sports categories to explore and in-game betting options on a good many prime candidates such as football, basketball, soccer, hockey baseball and tennis. The boast is of over one thousand wagering options every day, and once logged in it seems a fair claim!
Signing up with 5Dimes is super simple – assuming, of course, you’re eligible to register a player account from where you’re resident – and once your account is activated you can then unleash the full 5Dimes experience.
In common with criticism we’ve levelled at other US serving sportsbooks, we must note that the bet selection and placement process isn’t as elegant as that we’ve experienced on leading European operators, however that’s not to say that it’s difficult.
There’s certainly no shortage of flexibility on what’s possible, letting you compile plenty of single and exotic wagers to suit your tastes and challenge your powers of prediction. We also found navigating 5Dimes’ options intuitive, so overall we found little to get in the way of locating the events we wanted and dialling in the wagers on markets that tempted us with keen odds.
Mobile & Tablet
5Dimes is easy to play on your Smartphone’s browser.
5Dimes offers a huge range of deposit and withdrawal options.
5Dimes offers excellent 24/7 support, 7 days a week. Bet365 uses Chat, Email, Web Message, Phone and Post.
Overall we found that 5Dimes offered a pretty compelling sportsbook. It certainly offers a very good choice for US and Canadian bettors that like to mix sports wagering with other entertainment such as Live Dealer Casino and online poker tournaments, since having such good quality services accessible with just one player account becomes very attractive. The usability of this sportsbook’s site isn’t as sublimely smooth as we’ve enjoyed at some other operators in this business, but it works more than adequately to let you happily (and securely) profit from some fantastic sporting action. And what’s not to like about that?
