5Dimes sportsbook has been in the online betting industry since the industry first started in the middle of the 1990s. From the late 90s to early 2000s, 5Dimes has emerged as one of the best online sportsbooks for bonuses, betting options and customer service. For the bettor that has never heard of 5Dimes, here are a few appealing factors to one of the most elite shops we’ve ever stumbled across.
Who Bets Here – 5Dimes is one of the best online shops in the industry, yet it doesn’t have the same sort of brand name recognition as the BetOnline and Bodog’s of the industry do. Still they accept all comers, from the sharpest high spending bettors to the casual square bettors just getting into the industry.
5Dimes uses the early line low juice and big bonus business model. Essentially this approach has allowed for 5Dimes to get a lot of site traffic from every type of client to make up the sportsbook industry.
Reputation – Aside from welcoming any type of online betting enthusiast, 5Dimes is also known as one of the few sportsbooks that sets the lines for the rest of the industry. This means, that for bettors who like to log on at eight in the morning, you can expect betting lines to already be up. What’s more, for the MLB handicappers, 5Dimes offers the lowest juice for overnight lines.
Overnight lines are starting prices for the next day’s baseball games. 5Dimes submits the next day and night’s overnight lines immediately concluding the final game of the previous night.
Biggest Appeal To The Shop – 5Dimes is known as one of the only sportsbooks that allows its customers to set up their own bonuses. In the past this has gotten them into trouble, specifically, because most bettors who wager online like to have the bonuses set in stone. By allowing people the opportunity to pick their own adventure, it leads to mass confusion.
