About Us | Take a Gamble - Hollywoodbets


Welcome to Hollywoodbets!


So you might be wondering, who are these newcomers?  


The truth is… we’re not from here. We’re actually a warm, down-to-earth South African based company, with a glamorous, American-sounding name, expanding our exciting brand offerings to a new global audience. That’s you.  


Hollywoodbets started out in 1999 with just one small, purple betting shop based in Durban. After more than 20 years operating with the purpose of ‘creating stars every day’, we are now the largest bookmaker in South Africa, with over 80 stores across the country and a thriving online platform. From 2015 to 2019 we expanded the Hollywoodbets brand to Mozambique, Ireland, and now the UK.  


At Hollywoodbets.co.uk you’ll find all the markets and functionality you’d expect from the major players in the industry. We offer comprehensive Sports Betting, Live and Pre-match, an Online Casino, Slots, Online Scratch Cards, Online Lottery Style Games, Betgames TV, Virtual Sports and E-sports. Apologies for the long list, we needed it for our SEO. We also offer competitive odds and a unique mix of promotions every month.  


We are young and cutting edge, but also with the dependability and integrity already synonymous with the Hollywoodbets brand. Our high-energy, positive, get-things-done culture, and an infectious spirit of Ubuntu is something we take with us wherever we go, and it’s what we’re bringing to you. What is Ubuntu you ask? Roughly translated it means humanity, togetherness and interconnectedness. It’s what drives our social responsibility, guides our client experience, and sets our customer service apart. We are because you are.  


So now that you know a little more about us, we hope you will come along on the next stage of our journey as we add a bit of colour, excitement (and hopefully a bit of cash) to your online gaming experience.
