Offshore sportsbook 5Dimes is pursuing efforts to enter the regulated US market, according to the widow of its founder.
Earlier this month, the Costa Rica-based operator announced intentions to suspend its US operations from 21 September, with an aim of improving its betting services.
It hinted at plans to “take advantage of the opportunity to offer an improved online sports betting experience”, with the suspension needed to transition and relaunch operations.
Now, the widow of 5Dimes founder William Sean Creighton, who was found dead in September 2019, confirmed the operator’s plans to enter the regulated market, suggesting there were surprises in store for its customers.
Laura Varela said: “Sean worked incredibly hard to provide the best online sports-betting experience to the 5Dimes community. I am so humbled and gratified by the many loyal customers who love the 5Dimes brand.
“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.
“Based on what I’ve heard, a lot of you want that, too! Stay tuned, and please come back again soon for updates!”
