5Dimes ends support for EPN - Opens independent room 'Grand Poker'

I was informed about this via Live Chat tonight after I could not transfer any funds to Open Waters/Shark Tank. Apparently they are leaving open Fish Pond and have started a new site 'Grand Poker'. I am pretty upset with this decision, they had a great thing going but unfortunately decided to end it.

I think their new pokerroom will run good since they have fastest cashout and highest rakeback among industry.

Re: 5Dimes ends support for Equity/WPN - Opens independent room 'Grand Poker'

I don't have money on 5dimes atm but came across Grand Poker today. Decided to check out the software, and I don't know whose software it is.. but from what I could see, it looks pretty slick. No money on there meant I couldn't use it, but the hu game I was watching for a bit seemed to run pretty smooth. Plus it looked like they were taking less rake ($1 pots at 50nlhu were taking 4 cents, I saw a $5 pot get raked 22 cents, and 40 cents on a $9 pot at 50nl with 6 at the table).

View of the lobby:



6 handed 50nl table going. Grabbed a screenshot with a decent sized pot to show the ~4.5% rake:



I'm pretty impressed with the number of table options etc that the software has. Anyone have any idea if this is something they licensed or built in house?

In order to download you have to log into your 5Dimes account and do it from there.

Looks like the old Everleaf software or what mintedpoker is using now.

Yes and this grandpoker may warrant further investigation to see if the soft is the only link between the 2.

The software does look somewhat similar. What makes me nervous though is that the Grand website also looks somewhat similar to the Minted website.

Please change topic to '5Dimes ends support for EPN - Opens new independent room Grand Poker'. I was given some faulty information originally.

I don't see bitcoin as a deposit option, which was the only reason I was on 5dimes.eu in the first place.

Oh well...

You have to email support if you want to deposit via bitcoin.

San Jose, Costa Rica - As EquityPokerNetwork.com (“EPN”) is only days away from its first anniversary of real-money gaming, it is also enjoying a phase of new maturity, as it better understands its own recreational player base and what makes for a great union between Network and Operator. This self-awareness brings today’s announcement that the EPN and the 5Dimes Group have ended their business relationship, effective immediately.

EPN’s infancy online was very much about attracting established Operators as part of an important push for player awareness and added liquidity, and the Network’s organic growth has allowed EPN Management to take stock of this particular ‘marriage’; the time is right for 5Dimes to move on, and both parties have mutually agreed to go their separate ways.

This separation will affect players across the 5Dimes Group, which includes the poker rooms 5Dimes.eu, Sportbet.com, IslandCasino.com, and Vietbet.eu. There will be no impact on the flagship card room, FullFlushPoker.com (“FFP”), or any of the EPN’s other skins.

The Network’s emphasis remains squarely on providing recreational players with a fun, entertaining and secure online poker experience. The team is equally committed to consolidating its position in the industry, while attracting like-minded Operators that are the right fit for the Network’s unique business model.

"We are happy with where the Network is heading, and with the steady climb in player numbers. Our month-on-month increased guaranteed prize pools, quality promotions, and consistently fast and reliable cashouts are markers of EPN’s early success, and our growing reputation amongst players,” said an EPN Spokesperson.

“We bid farewell to 5Dimes on good terms, and we wish them continued growth for the future.”

For more information, contact your 5Dimes Group customer service representative.

For right now, yes.
But I think they will gradually increase other stacks.
Yesterday there was no $0.10/.25. They add it today.
