Hollywoodbets can be traced back all the way to the 1980s. The company started life as a small South African based publisher named Winning Form. That firm distributed race cards in South Africa and it still does to this day, despite the growth of Hollywoodbets.

It was in 2000 when the Hollywoodbets brand emerged, its first betting shop opening its doors in the city of Durban. The company was named after Hollywood Park Racetrack in Los Angeles. Their services consist of a wide range of betting options and include exciting products with a quicker turn-around like Betgames, Live Games as well as Lucky Numbers. They also offer betting on all major sports including horse racing, soccer, cricket, rugby, golf, tennis, American football, basketball, darts and more.

Hollywoodbets also operates in countries such as Mozambique, Ireland and the United Kingdom, with the brand’s global reputation steadily spreading. They run dozens of betting shops in South Africa which have been approved by regulators in Gauteng, Western Cape, Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal, as well as in Limpopo and Mpumalanga. A pair of Hollywoodbets branches also operate in Maputo, Mozambique.

Cricket fans in South Africa will recognise Hollywoodbets from the company’s sponsorship of the Dolphins franchise that represents the KwaZulu-Natal province, with the side playing their home matches at the famous Kingsmead Cricket Ground in Durban.
