    Yeah. A few Aussie books do this, and it comes in handy when arbing a bit.

    The only anonymous books I know would be the Bitcoin books where you bet and get paid in BTC like NitrogenSports which mirrors Pinnacle lines. The current limit is 0.42 BTC on TJ Dillashaw right now for example or over $3,000, and smaller on other bouts. Or a Bitcoin exchange like Fairlay which sometimes has decent liquidity depending on the sport & fight.

    Didn't actually realize that Nitrogen mirrors Pinnacle limits. Very interesting!

    I don't use 5dimes anymore bc my limits always get cut fairly quickly and they also add extra layers of annoyance like making me verify my device with an e-mail code just to log in and check lines.

    Bookmaker is awesome because they have decent limits early in the week. While limits are $500 at pinny and BOL you can get $2-3k down on some of these soft lines. For instance, it was the only book where you could get that much down on JJ Aldrich while she was +215.

    But for recreational bettors 5dimes is the best bc so many lines and props. And most bettors are recreational, so I always recommend it to anybody starting off.

    For you bigger players isn't it going to be much easier very soon to make plays the size you want (with the new law allowing states to legalize sports betting)?

    Doesn't affect me. I play hundreds not thousands so I don't care. But for you guys playing bigger amounts I'd think your options will open up soon right?

    The more options and places to wager the better for sure. But there are fifty states in the U.S. and many of them won't have legalized sports gambling for a long while if ever in some cases. And even those that do, who knows if they will offer MMA lines or just major sports. Even if they do the odds will be worse than online generally with no selection of props. And bigger bettors, especially those who win significant money, risk being severely limited or even banned from the properties with no recourse. One pro gambler I saw online on Twitter got the boot after just a few days of betting major sports at one of the new legal brick & mortar sports books in New Jersey.

    I used to use this site but its aligned with a few other sites (all with .ag at the end of them) - they're fine. payout is strange, they will send you a weird investment type enveloped with money orders for payout as the best possible option and they will completely cut you off if you hit a big bet. I hit a 32k football parlay last year and they stopped taking my wagers.

    How has your experience been with withdrawing from 5dimes? Actually this question pertains to anyone willing to share their experiences.

    Pretty easy? Western union? Check?

    I just keep growing my bankroll, never took a payout yet. Probably would just do a Bitcoin withdrawal at this point when I am ready.

    hey since someone dug this thread up, would anyone be interested in writing an honest bookmaker review for me for 20 bucks?

    just a couple of paragraphs, no bullshit. i need some social proof for the bookmakers section of my blog as it looks too plain at the moment.

    I've been withdrawing 3k USD once a month via cashiers cheque, it arrives via fedex within 2 days of my request. I believe the fee is $80 and the max amount is 3k USD, but you get one free withdrawal a month if you request it on a Monday between 9AM-1PM EST.

    Damn dude! You're that good and consistent ?

    Looks like I'll be tailing your bets too.

    I'm surprised 5dimes hasnt shut you off yet, or limit your wagers.

    How dare you insult 5dimes. They paid me over $30k in MMA winnings.

    Jesus christ. Well, thankfully Hein, Ledet, and Diakiese are tough guys, as those 3 fights were all on the borderline of being stopped.

    Lol, it wasn't a comfortable hour and a half of decisions. Was really sweating the last 2 fights with Tybura eating a flush front kick, Struve having a second mouth, and Corey rocking Glover multiple times.
