Have you ever fantasized about the 5Dimes sportsbook? Well now you can. Fantasy football has become big business, and it recently showed up in an online sportsbook. Fantasy sports participation in general, managing “fantasy” versions of Major League Baseball, National League Football, National Hockey League and National Basketball Association teams, saw $800 million directly spent on fantasy sports products as recently as 2008. An additional $3 billion was spent on media products directly related to those fantasy hobbies that year, such as satellite radio and TV packages covering the four sports listed above. That is serious money.
Helping you cash in on all that money is the 5Dimes online sportsbook, who just added fantasy sports to their Las Vegas style casino, sportsbook, poker, race book and lottery options. 5Dimes is also US player friendly, so fantasy sports lovers in the United States can also participate. If you are familiar with fantasy sports because you play yourself, you understand the fanatical devotion fantasy managers have to the entire process. And if you have yet to personally enjoy a little fantasy ownership of your own make-believe professional sports team, 5Dimes makes it easy.
Just head over to the 5Dimes online sportsbook and register for a free account, then select the “Fantasy Sports” tab from the menu located at the top of any page on the website. Follow the on-screen prompts to create your fantasy sports user name and e-mail preferences, and fund your account. And unlike standard season-long fantasy sports, 5Dimes allows you to compete in daily head-to-head fantasy sports contests rather than committing to an entire league played out over an entire professional sports season.
There is a Research tab located in the Fantasy Sports app which provides you with the latest team and player information concerning roster positions and moves, trades and injuries. 5Dimes offers fantasy sports daily competitions in varying dollar amounts for the NHL, NBA, MLB and NFL professional sports leagues. Online scoreboards launch at the beginning of each “league” which coincides with the first game played in that league.
It was only a matter of time before online casinos and sportsbooks began to offer access to daily fantasy sports contests. The movement started decades ago with rotisserie baseball, and fantasy football is currently the most popular fantasy sport. The ability to play a single day fantasy contest head-to-head against another fantasy sports aficionado is nice without having to commit to an entire season or league. And any monies won can be used in the 5Dimes sportsbook, casino, poker room or anywhere else on the site. When a respected online casino like 5Dimes gets involved with fantasy sports, it is only a matter of time before other online interactive gaming companies enter that fantastical realm of virtual sports management as well.
