The individual, going by the name Pablo222, posted on SportsBookReview.com late Sunday:

After playing and paying rake and fees 5dimes stole 53k from me for no reason.
I signed up on 5Dimes 3 years ago, after a poker friend said he plays there and it was an "ok" site. I did a little research and saw they had high ratings as a sportsbook. Also I was not too concerned as I was playing recreationally.

I was told by customer service that I could play the weekly poker freeroll and was good to go. I took 3rd? in the first one I played. I used those winnings to play real money tables sporadically over the next three years building up my bankroll to about 800 dollar. I probably paid a couple thousand in rake over that period. Last Friday I was playing a NL25 badbeat jackpot table, and the unthinkable happened. My quad eights were rivered by a straight flush. I was in shock as I am a working stiff and this is more money than I make in a year. After the win all I thought about was paying off ************ and paying down a good chunk of our mortgage.

For 5 days there was no issue. And then I got home from working overtime on New Years Day to find the funds confiscated. They tried to say that it was because I did not deposit. I specifically asked about this when signing up and carefully read the terms of service. They did not argue that I could not play free rolls, but switched to line in the TOS that I could not take advantage of the site. I did not even play many freerolls after that because it is after my bedtime, and I had built a bankroll on cash tables.

Do not play this site because I have now dug deeper and am finding out that they like to confiscate funds when someone wins a lot of money. I have paid at least a few thousand in rake and played only a handful of freerolls.

Let me state that I have never done anything against the terms of service, nor have they said I have. (besides taking advantage of them by playing a free roll they told me I could play!) They let me continue to play for three years.

5Dimes continues to be graded an A+ at Sportsbook Review even after its owner Sean "Tony" Creighton was reported kidnapped back in September and his whereabouts to this day remain unknown.

Creighton was often seen as someone who could fly off the handle but was fair.

Details of the current management structure remain unknown, however, the company does seem to be running without a hitch...until now.

Of course, this matter can easily be resolved and there are often two sides to the story.

Grand Poker is the name of the 5Dimes poker brand.

The Grand Poker Network consists of a group of poker rooms who all share their players and run the same games in order to increase the amount of viable games on the network.

5Dimes has changed poker clients on numerous occasions over the past decade.
