Hollywood grabs the bit with betting on racing world wide

South Africa’s largest bookmaker, is leading the way with another breakthrough in the local betting industry. The brand, recognised as the leader in innovation and customer service will launch “HOLLYWORLD 24/7” on Tuesday, the 1st April 2014 (No Jokes!)

The 24 hour service will be available nationally, online via the website, mobile and phone-a-bet facilities.

The 63 national betting outlets will also be gearing up to support the new service. The exciting new innovation is an opportunity for customers to place bets on horseracing across the globe, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Opportunities to bet on horseracing from Australia and the USA have been added to the standard South African and United Kingdom menu at Hollywood. Prospects to bet on additional racing from other countries around the world are imminent. Undoubtedly, the most exciting aspect of this revolution is that the dividends for ALL INTERNATIONAL racing will now be sourced from the country of origin e.g. Australian racing dividends will be taken from an Australian tote, ensuring Hollywood clients will receive competitive dividends from a trustworthy source.
