Summary
5Dimes Casino and Sportsbook is an online sportsbook and racebook operating out of Costa Rica since 1998. The story is, 5Dimes was opened by a professional sports bettor who accumulated quite a fortune and used it to launch 5Dimes. The online sportsbook has gained a strong reputation for prompt payouts, as well as being the #1 sports betting site for MMA bettors. The software is top quality and constantly updated with the latest enhancements. 5Dimes offers reduced juice on a number of league sports, like football, basketball, golf, boxing, MMA and more. New members can earn a 50% free play bonus worth up to $200, or 20% up to $400.

Bonus
When you register a new player account and make an initial deposit, 5Dimes Sportsbook will match it 50% up to $200 in free-play bonus cash. For larger deposits, 5Dimes offers 20% up to $400 in free-play cash.

The redemption rules are a bit different at 5Dimes Sportsbook, compared to similar sports betting site. To redeem the bonus, you must first deposit, then contact customer support via live chat, email or telephone and request the bonus within 24 hours of depositing.

Existing members can take advantage of up to $500 in free-play bonus rewards on reload deposits. Every deposit of $250 or more is matched 20%, up to $500 max. The same redemption request rules apply.

Software
5Dimes Sports is a no-download online sportsbook and racebook with a sophisticated interface that is as quick and stable as it is easy to use. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to test this out for yourself without actually singing up a user account. The main web site is loaded with information about 5Dimes, but does not reveal any actual betting opportunities currently on the menu. Once you login to 5Dimes, you’ll be given the full spectrum of its quality and sports bets.

Though not necessarily brimming with sporting events, 5Dimes Sports does have some excellent odds, not to mention the most versatile MMA betting opportunities in the business. All sports bets are offered on professional and collegiate levels where available. 

Sports: Football, Basketball, Baseball, Hockey, Golf, Auto Racing, Soccer, Tennis, Boxing, MMA, Horse Racing, Bandy, Handball and Water Polo.

Other Gambling Opportunities
5Dimes is much more than an online sportsbook and racebook, also operating the 5Dimes Casino, 5Dimes Poker Room, 5Dimes Lottery Room and 5Dimes Skill Games. Many punters spend their spare time in the casino, poker and lottery rooms, waiting for their bets to come in. For poker players, this translates to some very loose competition on the virtual felt.
