At Hollywoodbets we strive to offer the very best online sports betting platform in South Africa, with our feature-packed mobisite affording you total control over your online betting experience.

Creating Your Account and the FICA Process

Creating a Hollywoodbets account and starting your online betting journey is a simple, straight-forward process. To get started, simply visit our mobisite (m.hollywoodbets.net) and click on the green “Register Now” button on the top right of the screen. Fill out the registration form with all of your details and hit the submit button. Once you have successfully created your account, you’re ready to start betting! Remember, the R25 sign-up bonus needs to be used within 24 hours of opening your account.

Following the above process, head back to the mobisite and login. You’ll see that your balance – which is indicated in the top right corner – will read R25. At this point, you can choose to either FICA your account now or when you’re ready to make your first withdrawal. You can learn more about FICA and how it affects your online sports betting account by clicking here.

Placing Your First Bet

You’re now ready to place your first bet! For this example, we’ll take a soccer multiple bet on a couple of Champions League matches with our R25 sign-up bonus.

First up, we’re going choose the “Soccer” tab highlighted by the red box below.

Next, we’ll choose the UEFA Champions League by tapping the highlighted box as illustrated below.

Once we’ve selected the tournament, and selected which group we want to have a bet on (in this case, we’ve chosen Group E), we need to select which markets we’d like to have a bet on. Here, we’ve backed Napoli to draw with Genk and Red Bull Salzburg to draw with Liverpool. Simply tap on the market you’d like to add to your bet slip. Once the market is highlighted in purple, it has been added to your bet slip. If you’ve made a mistake and want to remove the market, simply tap on it again to remove it. You can see below that we’ve chosen draws at odds of 6 and 3.2.

To see what your multiple will work out to, simply hit the “Bet Slip” button at the bottom of your screen. Your bet slip will show all of the legs that you’ve added to your multiple. Scroll down and you’ll see that the final price is 29.11. This means that for every R1 to play on this bet, you stand to win R29.11 back. Tap on the stake field (highlighted in red below) to change how much you’d like to wager; in our case we’re playing the full R25 bonus on this bet. Once you’re happy, tap the green “Submit Multiple” button below. This button also shows your potential payout. Once you’ve submitted and your bet has been struck, you’ll see a green banner indicating that your bet was placed successfully.


Now that you’ve got the basics down, let’s take a look at some of the other features of the mobisite. We offer a number of different ways to get money in and out of your account. In terms of deposits, you can pick between and EFT or from any of several payment portals on the website, these are: OZOW, peach payments, Virtual Card Services, PayFast, Zapper, SiD Instant EFT and PayU. If you’d prefer to use an airtime-styled voucher, you can purchase one of thousands of retailers and informal traders around the country including the likes of SPAR, Boxer and Shoprite. This facility can be accessed by clicking on the green “Top Up” button on the top right of the home page.


In terms of withdrawals, you can send your winnings directly to your bank account via EFT. If you’d prefer, we can send cash to an ATM or retailer of your choice using ABSA Cash Send, Standard Bank Instant Money, Nedbank Send-iMali or FNB eWallet. Alternatively, you can head to one of our branches around the country to withdraw. Remember to have your account number and ID document ready if you choose this option.


The site also has a comprehensive results facility which allows punters to check results of every single market and event that we offer. This can be found under the “Results” tab on the home page.
