Hollywoodbets App Download Alternatives - Place Bets On Your Phone or Tablet
Hollywoodbets are one of the biggest online sports betting companies in South Africa. Hollywoodbets offer a wide selection of popular sports for punters to gamble on like soccer, horse racing, rugby, cricket, tennis and more.
What's more, they also offer Betgames and Lucky Numbers which helps them cater to punters who want casino betting action. There's just one thing missing from this great bookmaker—and that's a mobile app!
Read on to find out why there's no Hollywoodbets App and what your alternatives are for mobile betting on the site.
As mentioned there is currently no Hollywoodbets App which is very disappointing considering how popular apps are and the funds that Hollywoodbets have available to them. Even without an app punters can still place bets on the Hollywoodbets site.
We're going to offer up some alternatives to an app, ones that punters can immediately take advantage of. Once Hollywoodbets has released an app for download we'll let you know about it here. Hopefully, we'll see cool features like Cash Out and Edit My Bet, ones that we find at other South African bookmakers.
The Hollywoodbets website is also compatible with new smartphones like the iPhone and Android devices, and punters should have no trouble accessing the site and placing bets from their phone. Something which is a great alternative to an actual app. Here's how to access Hollywoodbets from your mobile.
- Visit the Hollywoodbets Mobile Site from your phone browser and register or login.
- Save the website as a bookmark on your home screen for quick access
- Submit your FICA docs so you can start betting
Using Hollywoodbets on older phones

Is there a Hollywoodbets App?
It's hard to say for certain when there will be a Hollywoodbets app available for download. We predict that Hollywoodbets will change their site completely before launching an app.
Their desktop site is very outdated and feels nothing like their slick mobile site. Once they've managed to get their desktop site matching the quality of the mobile site we suspect they'll start working on an app.
If you're desperate to use an app then there are several other betting apps available to South Africans, we suggest having a look and trying them while we wait for the Hollywoodbets app.
