Recommended betting site: Betway
Hollywoodbets is a sport betting company from South Africa that has a rich background history as an offline betting operator (the company was actually established back in 1986 year) and that has been offering mainly offline betting operations till today.
The betting house has more than 80 physical shops in South Africa and two more in Mozambique, but meanwhile, its online platform is quite far away from what we would expect from one contemporary betting operator.
We can say the same regarding the bookmaker’s mobile platform. More about this bookie’s mobile website version, as well as what types of bets you can place in it, you can find out if you continue reading this review.
Is there Hollywoodbets app – free download for Android?
Currently at the moment we are publishing this review, there’s no Hollywoodbets app for downloading. The applications are, as a matter of fact, typical for the modern online betting houses and this local betting operator can be hardly determined as such. Yet, mobile punters are not totally forgotten as they can place mobile bets via the betting operator’s mobile browser website version.
Speaking of which, Hollywoodbets has two mobile website versions:
- Mobile version for smartphones (if your device or your internet connection is too slow and unreliable, you can use the platform even through your smartphone via the other simpler version)
- Mobile version for mobile phones which are not smart
What can I do via Hollywoodbets apk?
Although we are offered with a mobile version that is designed for modern mobile devices with modern operating systems, we cannot determine it as a modern one, too. Unfortunately, we should estimate with a quite poor mark regarding its design and functionality.
On the other side, though, behind this plain mobile version look there are quite good possibilities for a bet. This betting company is a preferred platform for those punters from South Africa, who want to place bets on horse racing.
It’s because Hollywoodbets has larger than a 30-years old history in the field bets on this sport discipline and we would say that the company has perfected this service to a highest level. Besides horse racing, football fans have their own reason to place bets in Hollywoodbets platform, because it provides bets on all the local leagues. And we should remind you that most local sport betting websites suffer from a lack or limited program of local football events.
Alongside with the bets on football and horse racing, Hollywoodbets also offers matches from nearly two dozens of other sport types, but they come with lower odds and their events or markets are fewer. These factors cannot be compensated with interesting or / and any useful functions just because there are no such things in Hollywoodbets mobile website versions.
There’s light in the end of the tunnel for the sport betting activity in this bookie from South Africa and it’s the bonus system available via mobile devices.
For instance, the betting company has one amazing offer of 25 ZAR as a bonus you can receive not when making a deposit, but only with an officially opened account if you have no registration here. Although not in such a big amount this bonus has a unique characteristic to have no risk in its terms and conditions.
That’s why it’s such an appetizing bite! There are other types of promotions in Hollywoodbets – refer- a friend bonus and some specific bonuses for football betting activity.
Hollywoodbets app – registration and deposit
The MOBI version for old mobile phones have no option for a registration, but if you use this version, open an account by sending SMS message with text Bet on this number: 45294.
Meanwhile, the mobile version designed for smartphones comes with an option for a direct registration. When you are on this Hollywoodbets website version, you will see only two green buttons – Register Now and Login. Press on the first button in order to see the information you need to fill in to open an official account.
Right after your registration process completes and passed the standard for South Africa FICA verification, you will see 25 ZAR as a bonus added in your account balance. If you want to add some of your own money to the bonus amount, you need to click on the red button Deposit.
In difference to the withdrawal process, which requires from you to go to any of the betting company’s physical departments, there’s a way for you to deposit via your smartphone. You can fund your account either through a credit card, or via Payfast. There’s a third option, but a slower one – make a bank wire transfer.
