Hollywoodbets - South African Betting Company - About Us

Hollywoodbets have been revolutionizing betting within South Africa since 1999 and we are currently making inroads further into Southern Africa. As a front-runner in our industry we are always finding new ways to give our customers the best betting experience.


Our sports betting site features a large variety of events and markets to bet on, with expert betting support both online and in store. We offer local and international horse racing betting, an extensive range of sports betting from soccer to American Sports as well as our fantastic Lucky Numbers international lottery offering. Betting is offered 365 days a year. We are also proud to provide live betting with our Live In-Play and Betgames Africa options.

After opening our first branch in Durban in the year 1999 we took the leap and joined the online community with the launch of our website www.hollywoodbets.net in 2006. Our mobisite www.hollywoodbets.mobi was created soon after that in 2009 as the business expanded.

Hollywoodbets now has over 85 branches spread across six of South Africa’s provinces as well as two branches in Mozambique. Additionally, we provide our customers with a variety of betting platforms including USSD betting, via our Phone-A-Bet call centre, the mobisite and website as well as the feature phone application.

In November 2018, Hollywoodbets launched its website-offering in Ireland (www.hollywoodbets.ie). This is the company's first step into Europe, however this was followed by the acquiring of their betting licence in the UK, which is now operational (www.hollywoodbets.co.uk).

Our values include service excellence, commitment to achieving our objectives, ubuntu, integrity, innovation, enthusiasm and accountability, and they underpin everything we do. For that reason we believe in investing in our team, and we’ve seen many people rise through the ranks.

Hollywoodbets are dedicated to excellence when it comes to customer service and the gaming products we offer. As a company we are constantly benchmarking ourselves against international standards and breaking new ground to enhance the betting and gaming experience for everyone.

Hollywoodbets also proudly sponsors various sporting brands including Hollywoodbets Greyville Racecourse, Hollywoodbets Scottsville Racecourse, Hollywoodbets Kingsmead Stadium, the Hollywoodbets Dolphins, and the Cell C Sharks.
