5Dimes Not Slowing WIth Payouts Yet

Since it was reported over the weekend that the founder and sole owner of 5Dimes body was found after an apparent murder-for-hire, many players have been asking if they are still paying out.

Gambling911.com previously noted that Sean "Tony" Creighton did have a well-oiled machine, a strong staff, and probably has good attorneys (the later yet to be verified).

On Tuesday, folks from the popular Sports Book Review forum (with many posts to their credit) were advising of smooth payouts.

Just thought I'd share since there are some worries out there. I requested a bitcoin payout of $1000 yesterday morning and it was completed just a few minutes ago. I've have nothing but great things to say about 5d. The best in my book.

Another chimed in:

Yeah i've done a pretty big amount, paid out quicker than ever

The absence of Creighton, who was 43 at the time of his death, cannot be underestimated.  His lines (and opinions) were widely used to make NBA players here at Gambling911.com (12-4 to close out the season).

For players, finding some good value and obvious line miscalculations will be tough without "Tony" at the helm.

More importantly, customers want to know they are going to be paid.

Sports Book Review continues to rate 5Dimes an A+.  Contacts for this website are currently in Lisbon at an iGaming show but Gambling911.com will certainly communicate closely with SBR for the latest news, noting that they are based within a mile of the 5Dimes office.

Warning signs would be other sportsbooks no longer wanting to engage in book-to-book transfers with 5Dimes.

In situations like these you never want to keep large sums of money in the business until a clearer picture is developed.  Think World Sports Exchange after partner Jay Cohen lied to Gambling911.com claiming that his sportsbook did not maintain an account in Allen Stanford's Antigua Bank after it failed.  Ultimately, his partner Steven Shillinger, hung out to dry by Jay, blew his brains out and customers were all stiffed out of their funds.

It did take a few years for that book to begin encountering problems with payouts.
