Hollywoodbets.co.uk Sports Review (2021)
Hollywoodbets is a new online betting site in the UK market, launching in mid-2020, but, the company behind Hollywoodbets has 20+ years of experience in the industry. The company first started as a single betting shop in South Africa, eventually expanding to 80+ stores and a dominant online presence in South Africa.
It is refreshing to see that Hollywoodbets is not launched as a white label solution as most new betting sites this year, and has their own UK gambling licence under the licensee name “Hollywoodbets International UK Limited”.
It is still too early to judge the trustworthiness of Hollywoodbets, but, it is encouraging to see a “new” bookmaker enter the UK market with 20+ years experience, 5000+ employees, and their own licence, instead of the 10+ white label solutions we have seen launch in 2020 that have already racked up plenty of 1-star player reviews.
Sports, Markets & Betting Odds
You can immediately tell that Hollywood bets have decades of experience in the industry with a wide range of sports available straight from launch, including horse racing and greyhounds, which is rare for new bookies. On top of the popular sports, you will also find a great depth of niche sports including esports, table tennis and ice hockey to name a few.
- Horse racing
- Table tennis
- Ice Hockey
- American Football
- Aussie Rules
- Auto Racing
- Formula 1
- Gaelic football
- Rugby League/Union
- Virtual sports
In terms of the betting markets, Hollywoodbets offers over 300+ different markets for popular football events, which is much higher than average. You will find a wide range of markets across the sportsbook including totals, handicaps, corners, cards, shots and more. But, we did not find a bet builder or any feature that allows you to create custom bets or request bets.
Hollywoodbets Customer Service
Unfortunately, Hollywoodbets does not offer a 24/7 customer service, but, it is open from 7:00 am – 22:00 pm seven days a week. Also, there are only two methods of contact, with a live chat and email support. We hope to see Hollywoodbets introduce 24/7 customer support, and more contacting methods including a free phone number, and social media support.
Overall, Hollywoodbets is a welcome new addition to a UK market that is getting tougher and tougher to compete in. In recent years, we have seen plenty of new betting sites leave the UK and only white label solutions launching in their place.
Of course, it is still too early to say much about Hollywoodbets, but, they have their own valid UK gambling licence, 20+ years of experience in the industry, and a competitive product. As Hollywoodbets is so new, we appreciate all and any new player reviews in the comments below.
