Registration Process 4/5

  • One step
  • Basic information
  • Quick process

Hollywoodbets’ registration process is unique in that the bookmaker asks new customers to list all the information they require in one step.

HollywoodBets Registration Step 1
Source: Hollywoodbets

The bookie asks for your name, gender, date of birth, postcode, country of residence, mobile phone number and email address. Towards the bottom of the list, you’re then asked to create a username and password for your account.

There’s a chance to redeem any promo codes you possess here, too.

HollywoodBets Registration Step 2

Once you’ve read the terms and conditions and ticked the box, a click of the ‘Submit’ button will see your Hollywoodbets account created instantly.

However, you’re not verified automatically by the bookie. You’ll have to provide documents that verify your identity (driving licence, bank statement, etc). This can be done by accessing the profile icon and the ‘Documents’ tab.


Deposits & Withdrawal Options 4/5

  • Various payment methods
  • Low max deposits
  • No fees
  • No cryptos

Hollywoodbets offers a huge variety of payment options for its customers to choose from. These include debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Maestro), e-wallets (PayPal, Skrill, NETELLER and Neosurf), pre-paid cards (paysafecard), bank transfer (Rapid Transfer) and Hollywoodbets top-up Vouchers.

HollywoodBets Payment Methods

For all payment methods barring one, the minimum deposit is £5 while the maximum is a low £5,000. For those depositing via paysafecard, the minimum deposit is £10.

It’s a similar story for withdrawals. The minimum and maximum withdrawals are the same for all methods (£10/£50,000). The bookmaker aims to process your withdrawals within 24 hours of your request, and it could take between 3-5 working days for your funds to arrive in your account (for all methods).

There are no fees associated with Hollywoodbets’ deposits and withdrawals, and the bookie doesn’t allow customers to fund their accounts with cryptocurrencies.


Welcome Offer 3/5

  • ACCA Insurance offer
  • 1x, 2x, 5x your stake back as a free bet
  • Qualify for this offer when one match on your football accumulator lets you down

Hollywoodbets Acca Insurance Offer Screenshot

Hollywoodbets has an ACCA Insurance welcome offer, where customers can get up to 5x their stake back as a free bet when one match on their football accumulator lets them down. This promotion requires the player to reach out to Hollywoodbets to claim their refund, by contacting support@hollywoodbets.co.uk, with ACCA INSURANCE in the email title.

This free bet is valid for seven days after it arrives in the user’s account.


Sportsbook Promotions 3.5/5

  • Several horse racing promotions
  • Lack of football offers
  • Basic loyalty scheme
HollywoodBets Promotions
Source: Hollywoodbets

There are plenty of promotions offered by Hollywoodbets. Horse racing bettors will be particularly satisfied with this new bookmaker boasting several different horse racing promos. These include Best Odds Guaranteed and First Past The Post.

The bookie also gives customers their money back should their selected horse finish second, while free bets are generously dished for selected weekend races.

An original, exclusive offer manifests via their £5 free bet if punters back a winner at 4/1 odds or greater at all Dundalk meetings.

Moreover, Hollywoodbets rewards punters with half their stake back and up to £20 in free bets should their backed team in the ongoing Rugby Championship lose after picking up a red card.

Unfortunately, there’s little by way of football promotions, although the bookie does attempt to incentivise accumulator betting through their ACCA Boost and ACCA Insurance promotions. Punters could see their accas boosted by up to 25%, and they can earn their stakes back (up to 5x the amount) if one leg lets them down in a 5+ fold football acca.

VIP/Loyalty Programme

HollywoodBets Loyalty Offer
Source: Hollywoodbets

Hollywoodbets possesses a loyalty scheme of some sorts, yet it’s not very sophisticated or rewarding.

The bookmaker’s ‘Loyalty Bonus’ rewards punters up to £10 in weekly free bets. You’ll be entitled to a £5 free bet for every £5+ bet placed at odds greater than 4/5 (between Monday to Sunday). Another £5 free bet can be earned by placing another five £5+ bets at the same qualifying odds.

You’re limited to a pair of £5 free bets every week.


Pre-Match Offer 4/5

  • Broad sportsbook
  • Impressive football coverage
  • Great odds
  • No specials

At the time of wrtiting this review, 28 sports make up Hollywoodbets’ sportsbook. The bookmaker shows how many live and upcoming events are offered within each sport via a small figure alongside the sport name on the A-Z list.

Their football coverage is broad, with over 900 events covered at this time. For most fixtures, over 350 markets can be utilised, too.

Despite the lack of promotions, there’s nonetheless a multitude of options for football bettors to enjoy with this bookmaker. A click of the small bar graph icon that accompanies each fixture opens up a new tab (as shown below) of statistics. League tables, head-to-head records, form and under/over goal records are provided.

HollywoodBets Head to Head Statistics

Punters can also take advantage of daily ‘Boosted Odds’ and Hollywoodbets’ ‘Multiples of the Day’ promotion. Here, the bookie supplies a ready-made acca for the day’s football action with odds boosted by 15%.

While their football coverage is impressive, the bookie’s odds are the most crucial element here, and to measure the quality of Hollywoodbets’ margins we used the odds overround.

The overround is a calculation that combines the total percentage probability of all selections in a match coming true. Naturally, the result of this should come to 100% – however, this does not factor in the profits made by the bookmaker. For this reason, it is widely accepted that any figure below 110% is considered to indicate fair odds.

We picked three games at random from the Premier League, EFL Cup and Serie A that returned margins of 107.50%, 106.36% and 105.85% respectively. Thus, Hollywoodbets’ margins are both consistent and fair.

Punters can display their odds as fractions or decimals, while the minimum stake is 1p and the maximum stake is £5,000. This low number could deter high rollers.


HollywoodBets E-Sports Betting

Hollywoodbets’ esports coverage is superb. All the popular games and events are covered, with a myriad of global esports tournaments available to bet on. Esports fans can bet on Counter-Strike, Dota 2, League of Legends, Starcraft, Starcraft 2 and Valorant events with this bookmaker. For some events, there are 80 markets to take advantage of!

Be sure to check out our esports betting tips if you want to improve your chances of winning at esports betting.

Other Specials

Novelty bettors will be disappointed. Unfortunately, this bookmaker doesn’t offer any specials, nor is there any political coverage.

Cash Out & Bet Builder

You can take full control of your bets with Hollywoodbets’ Cash Out and Partial Cash Out features. The bookmaker doesn’t offer a Bet Builder, however.


Live Offer 3.5/5

  • Basic live experience
  • Plenty offered
  • Live streaming for horse racing events available
HollywoodBets Live Offer
Source: Hollywoodbets

Hollywoodbets’ live offering can be accessed via the ‘In-Play’ tab on the prominent horizontal slider on the homepage. Markets and events are available across various sports.

The live football experience is basic: customers can view a timeline, statistics, and a match tracker. There isn’t much to it, although a multitude of in-play markets are available.

Moreover, this bookmaker does provide a live streaming service for its users. However, only horse races are streamed.


Security 4.5/5

  • Licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission
  • Comprehensive responsible gambling section
  • Numerous betting limits

Hollywoodbets is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission for its operations in the UK.

The bookmaker’s privacy and cookies policies are available to view in case you were concerned with what they’re doing with your personal data.

Importantly, the bookie also boasts a comprehensive responsible gambling section that covers several imperative topics including problem gambling and underage gambling. External sources for further support are also provided, such as GAMSTOP, the self-exclusion scheme.

Nevertheless, the bookmaker possesses numerous account limits for its users to deploy. These include time-outs, self-exclusions, reality checks and deposit limits. Other betting limits, such as Max Single Bet, Max Daily Bet, Max Weekly Bet, and Max Monthly Bet can be utilised. These are effective tools to limit your spending and can be installed via the ‘Limits’ tab after accessing the profile icon.


Service & Customer Support 3.5/5

  • Limited avenues of communication
  • No FAQs
  • Superb live chat function

There are limited avenues of communication with this bookmaker. You can contact the bookie via email (support@hollywoodbets.co.uk) or through their live chat function.

There are no FAQs supplied, but their customer service is in operation between 7 am and 10 pm daily.

We began a live chat session to put Hollywoodbets’ customer support to the test.

HollywoodBets Chat 1
Source: Hollywoodbets

To get started, we had to confirm our name and email address before having the option to write a message summarising our enquiry. A click of the ‘Start Chat’ button connected us with an agent. We were connected almost immediately.

Once our session was underway, we enquired about withdrawal times for the bookie’s offered payment methods. The agent replied swiftly, first greeting us before offering a coherent response.

HollywoodBets Chat 2

We expressed our gratitude for their response before they asked whether there was anything else they could help us with. We politely declined before the agent thanked us for contacting the bookie’s support team.

HollywoodBets Chat 3

Overall, this was a pleasant experience. The agent was polite, friendly and efficient when replying. They solved our query in no time.

However, the lack of FAQs and limited avenues of communication certainly set the bookmaker back in this regard, despite their excellent live chat function.


Design & Usability 2.5/5

  • Poor aesthetic and messy structure
  • Statistics offered
  • Fantastic blog
HollywoodBets Design
Source: Hollywoodbets

The prominence of purple on Hollywoodbets’ website is certainly bold and it may not suffice the tastes of some. It’s a little garish, with the combination of yellow only exacerbating such design woes.

Although the website certainly stands out from the crowd, we didn’t like the aesthetic. It’s somewhat gimmicky and there are a few grammatical inconsistencies.

Similarly, the structure is messy. Everything seems so cramped on the page. A pair of advertisement sliders are prominent in the centre of the homepage, with selected events running underneath. The right-hand side is consumed by a pitch graphic and your bet slip, which aids the betting process. Down the left, you’ll find an A-Z list of the bookie’s sportsbook and offered esports games. Popular links can be found towards the top. Important information links are accessible at the bottom of the homepage.

The technical performance of the site, on the other hand, was impressive – with the bookie also supplying statistics and a blog.

Their statistics page is comprehensive, with tables, fixtures and results provided for numerous sports on the bookie’s sportsbook. Below, you can see the 2021/22 Champions League group stage standings.

Hollywoodbets’ blog provides punters with horse racing tips, golf tips and previews for upcoming rugby matches. It’s a fine feature that could help shape the betting strategies of its customers.



  • No mobile app

Hollywoodbets doesn’t yet have a mobile app of any kind.

Other Products

Casino lovers will be more than satisfied should they sign up to Hollywoodbets. The bookmaker’s offering is pretty vast and laden with promotions. Tournaments are a key feature with customers playing for big prize pools.

The games offered include Megaways, slots, jackpots, scratch games and table games. The list is endless within each. Live casino events are also accessible.

New customers are entitled to 30 free spins following their maiden £10 stake on a selected game (Book of 99). The other prominent promotion is ‘Casino Cashback’, which gives users a cash refund of up to 10% on slots losses.


ThePuntersPage Final Say 3.3/5

It would be unrealistic to expect Hollywoodbets to be as sophisticated or efficient as its competitors considering its recent establishment – the bookmaker is barely a year old.

There are key areas to improve, such as the navigation of the website’s interface, while the lack of a mobile app certainly limits the number of customers they can attract since many bettors love being able to bet on the move.

In addition, the bookie’s live offering is pretty basic and the lack of communication avenues could be problematic. Currently, they’re heavily reliant on an albeit great live chat service to efficiently deal with customer queries. No FAQs exacerbates this issue.

Overall, refinement is required but you can expect that to arrive in time. Hollywoodbets could still attract new customers as a result of their various sportsbook promotions, fair odds and broad casino offering. For the time being, however, we think there is room for them to improve before they become a sportsbook that appeals to the masses.
