Is 5Dimes heading for the regulated US sports betting market?
FiveDimes is, unquestionably, one of the most well-known online sports betting brands that’s ever existed. The Costa-Rica-based outfit has had a long, and sometimes tragic, run from practically the dawn of the internet.
But FiveDimes has always had something of an outlaw reputation and thought of it operating in a regulated US sports betting market would have seemed like a fever dream a few years back. That fever dream could, potentially be coming through according to a bombshell scoop from CalvinAyre.com.
In the report, they share a quote from the widow of FiveDimes founder Sean ‘Tony’ Creighton saying, “I am the widow of Sean ‘Tony’ Creighton. Sean worked incredibly hard to provide the best online sports betting experience to the 5Dimes community.
“Many of you are asking about the brand’s future. I am limited in what I can disclose right now. But there are definitely some positive surprises in store for you. I am working with experts and consultants to make sure that the brand that you have come to love is well represented in the regulated U.S. market.”
That likely explains why FiveDimes recently gave (very short) notice to its US players that they need to shut down their accounts ASAP. It’s a process that’s clearly being done as quickly as possible as players only have until September 25 to wrap up their affairs.
FiveDimes has always been on the cutting edge of online sports betting and, in this instance, they look like they’re going to be the ones to see how the US market treats the industry’s outlaw pioneers.
