5dimes

Anyone have advice getting money on 5dimes? I tried to deposit today with my credit card via western union and for some odd reason, its not working. I'm guessing I may have to try another credit card from someone else but this is tilting. My past 2 deposits worked easily (however 1 was last august and my most recent was in june). FUARK I really wanted to bet nfl games again this season.

Re: 5dimes

Credit card companies routinely decline WU online transactions due to frequent instances of fraud. If you have access to cash just do the WU at a physical WU site.

For further assistance go on chat @ 5d.

Re: 5dimes

Using credit cards on WU is the best way to get your WU account suspended, too. Just do it in person.

Re: 5dimes

Thanks for quick feedback. I got money on today at a grocery store that does western union transactions. It was pretty funny because the cashier asked me if I knew the person and why I was sending money. IDK but i said sportsbetting and I didn't know the person but I wasn't worried about it being fraudulent. Kinda feel lucky she didn't just say no to transaction but it went through well.

Meh just wish US wasn't lame with online sportsbetting. I def feel like it should be legal.

Yea I've had trouble signing on today. Last year I never experienced this on Sundays during the NFL season.

Re: 5dimes

Pretty sure there was a large earthquake near Costa Rica today. I think a lot of online books were offline earlier today.

But yes 5dimes can get slow (usually it is accessible after few tries) sometimes. Try the mirror site propbet dot com if 5d isn't working.

Re: 5dimes

Lol at telling the WU girl you don't know the person you're transferring to. Is it really that hard to just say yes?

Re: 5dimes

you will have no problem making any WU transaction to a foreign country if you use a credit card that is linked to your checking account, i.e., i have a VISA card that is linked to my checking account

Re: 5dimes

had no issues with it, although at first it looked mildly scammy (the WU system).

So do people mostly like 5dimes for the reduced juice? Because my first impressions of it:

1) reduced juice is sort of pointless if it's not available early when the lines are good
2) mediocre teaser lines (if that's your thing)
3) in general lines that didn't look as good as some other books

I'm trying to figure out why I joined, outside of a friend recommending.

Yes, when the person asked me who the person was I just said "my friend" and if they ask you why you are receiving tell them it is none of their business.

Based on your model's assumption of the HRE or another book having a more respected line?

Re: 5dimes

Does 5dimes have different lines for different people? I am pretty sure bovada does that correct?

I just dealt with that. I opened an account, my teaser lines weren't as good as my friend's. I was explained that the older accounts had the good teaser lines AND the reduced juice, whereas new ones like me had to pick just one. I picked one and that was that.

Re: 5dimes

I've been running hella-good at their online blackjack. Granted I'm only betting $2-$5 per hand, but Im up $75-80ish over the last 10 days

Im sure its rigged, not sure if its based on how high I bet or just the computer wins more often than it should. Regardless, I should prolly just quit
