5Dimes is just about the only acceptable American facing book left.
I give them a lot of credit. They really dont have to do all that they do - like spotless pay record, reduced juice, tons and tons of betting options - but they do - and they remain despite being really a dinosaur. They are the only one of their kind left.
I used to criticze them all the time here. I laughed at them because they limited players to almost nothing if you bet big and won. I dont anymore - in fact - if I could retract everything I said 5-10 years ago about them I would. Pinnacle is gone. Matchbook is gone. Mansion is gone. All the books of the time that made 5dimes look like a rec book are gone. 5dimes is still here - for now....
And until they leave - which seems inevitable based on the industy's history - props to them.
