The 5Dimes Betting Contest is completely free of charge and available to all 5Dimes Group players.
The Betting Contest has two objectives, one is to build a streak of consecutive winning picks on specific events to collect a Betting Streak prize when reaching a paying position; and the other is to achieve the highest scoring Betting Streak on the monthly Leader board to collect the Betting Streak Contest Monthly Prize.
Betting Streak prizes are applied to eligible accounts for streaks of 5, 10, 15 and 25 consecutive winning picks.
Build the longest winning streak of the month and win the Betting Contest Monthly Prize.
Take your winning streak to the extreme with 25 consecutive correct selections and win a $5000 CASH prize!
Please read thoroughly the rules below before you start playing.
How to Play
Login to your sports account and click on Betting Contest from the left side menu.
Create a screen name and proceed to click on “Create”.
To begin with, CHECK YOUR PRIZE ELIGIBILITY! In order to receive a Betting Streak Prize, you must have Sportsbook activity within 24 hours of posting the first winning selection of your Betting Streak (more info on Betting Contest Terms and Conditions).
Each day, you must choose one pick you believe will win from the list offered on the “Today’s Pick” tab.
Click on the “Today’s Pick” tab to see the games or events available for the day. Choose one pick out of the options available and go through the confirmation process.
The lines of the events are updated throughout the day according to the line changes registered for that line on the Sportsbook Main.
If your selection is a winner, you will receive one point towards your streak total score. If you fail to make a pick within 7 days of your previous winning selection, your streak will reset to zero.
Once your Betting Streak reaches a paying position, you will be awarded a prize according the milestone achieved.

For the Betting Contest Monthly Leaderboard, only the first place will have the prize applied. In the case of a TIE for the first place between one or more players, the amount of the prize will be divided in equal parts amongst the eligible winners.
Betting Contest Terms and Conditions
In order to receive a Betting Contest Prize, you must have Sportsbook activity within 24 hours of placing the first winning selection of your Betting Streak.
“Sportsbook activity” refers to at least one real money wager being posted no more than 24 hours before or after entering the first winning pick of your Betting Streak. The first winning selection of every new Betting Streak has the 24 hour rule from the post time of the pick. Qualifying real money wagers can be placed in Sportsbook Main or Live Betting Extra.
IMPORTANT! As of September 1st, 2014, the following rule for the application of the 5 Wins Betting Streak Prize significantly changed to the following: Betting Streaks of 5 wins will be awarded a $50 valued item prize ONLY IF the eligible account has a real money wager of $50 or more posted within 24 hours of starting the winning streak. Accounts not fulfilling this requirement will get applied a Free-Play for the amount of the highest real money wager posted within 24 hours of starting the winning streak and up to $49.99. If the qualifying real money wager is between $0.50 and $4.99, a $5 Free-Play will be credited.
Accounts that do not post a real money wager within 24 hours of placing the first winning selection of the streak will be awarded a 5% of the prize amount for ONE WINNING STREAK ONLY. Future winning streaks that do not fulfill the wagering requirements will not be eligible for further prizes.
All events available on the “Today’s Pick” tab are scheduled for the same day and will be graded after the last event is over.
Only one selection per account per day is allowed. Once your match is graded, the following day you can make your next pick. Confirmed picks may not be deleted nor edited.
Only picks made on the “Today’s Pick” tab qualify for the Betting Streak prizes and Betting Contest Leaderboard prizes.
To keep an active betting streak of winners, you must make a pick on a game or event played within 7 days of your previous winning selection or your Betting Streak score will be reset to zero.
All Sportsbook Rules apply for grading purposes.
If your selection is a winner, you will receive one point towards your streak score.
If your selection is a loser, your score will be reset to zero.
If your selection is postponed, suspended, cancelled or removed from the board for any reason, your selection will not count towards your Betting Streak score and you will need to make a new selection for a game played on a future date. You will have 7 more days to add a new pick to your streak.
If the game you selected results in a tie or push, the event will be graded cancelled and your Betting Streak score will not change. You will have 7 more days to add a new pick to your streak.
Players with Betting Streaks carrying over from one month to the next must have the most winning picks made during the ongoing calendar month in order to win the Betting Streak Contest prize of the month. Only picks made within the same month will be considered towards the Betting Streak Contest monthly prize.
For the Betting Contest Monthly Leaderboard, only the first place will have the prize applied. In the case of a TIE for the first place, the amount of the prize will be divided in equal parts amongst the eligible winners.
