Bet at 5dimes

5 Dimes Payout Charge

Just had a little tussle with 5Dimes (they wouldn't let me cancel a futures bet on winning the Eastern Conf. NBA I just put in 5 minutes earlier - could have sworn the bet field said Pacers at +10150 but the ticket read Detroit, which I didn't catch when approving the bet). I've seen glitches like this before but I couldn't confirm who was right because the bet options came down once the 4pm PST games started. It was only $100 so not the end of the world. But I decided to close the account - and to take out $2500 they are charging me $80 (Cashier Check). I think this is my first payout request ever - didn't this used to be Free? That's a large fee. Is that common now with these offshore books? thanks

I will try and look it up for you but they have been charging for checks for years. There might be a certain time of the month where they have a free WD slot (say every first Monday?). This isn't uncommon though. In the future, try BTC. Very easy and transfers process very quickly.

It is a great site but their management is manic. I tried to withdraw once and they slow rolled it for days without explanation. Later saying years back I argued something with their management about credit card charges. Not very honest.

Thanks BAR but don't worry about it - it's only $100. But I've been with them a long time and it was a future bet just made 5 minutes earlier - no advantage or anything - they could of cancelled it. But I'm not going to support them with my business anymore. On the withdraw, I just had in my mind it was free though I never made a withdraw before. I assume BTC is BitCoin - no idea how it works and how you turn it back into cash and no one I know can ever explain it to me (and some are very tech savvy). But a $80 fee is way too steep too. I still have BOL and plan to set up some others. thanks again

A lot of these sites have tried to get away from checks etc.

It is always a revolving world but that is most likely why they charge for a check. Like I said though, the charge for checks has been going on for years. That is nothing new.

What I would encourage anyone to do... is if you have a problem with a book that you check with us. There is always a chance we can talk to them as sort of a second level of communication. It doesn't mean anything will come of it but more times than not when we have had 5dimes or BOL issues with our members we are able to help talk to them and get clarification.

If you are looking for a fair place Bookmaker.EU has cancelled many bets for me over the years and they will send you a check up to $3000! Although they do charge a fee for FEDEX of Check, they give you BETPOINTS for every wager? I almost always have enough BETPOINTS to offset cost of Check being sent to my front Door! Not to mention they give all players a reload bonus while they are losing everytime you reload!

FWIW, it sucks that the wager was a future, cause the rare times I spaz out and put in a wrong bet cause Im rushing before tip or otherwise distracted, is to just wash the bet by taking other side. Future bet you cant really do that. I have called 5dimes on a ruling or two, book specific weather type and was frustrated with one ruling in particular. However, your anger at the book for not fixing your mistake is misplaced. Books arent your friend but they are much better than the humans that I wagered with decades past. I encourage you to keep your account and take their money by picking winners. Thanks for sharing cause i have wanted to yell at Tony myself. I wonder how many of these calls he gets a day? Over/under 100? Is that too low?

thanks guys. It is too bad it was a future bet as I would have gladly offset and taken the vig hit. Like I said only $100 and I know they are not in the business of cancelling bets but I think exceptions can and should be made but they just didn't seem interested. I'm small potatoes so I get it. I will miss them because they have the best menu IMO - but really my betting focus is CF and BOL is the critical one there as they put out the openers. I think I will set up Bookmaker as well as Bet 365 as alternatives. I left some money in 5D and in time may refund. thanks again.
