Hollywoodbets steps up to the plate as we increasingly turn to online platforms for entertainment. The brand has added Lotto Instant Win to its offering.


Since South Africa went into lockdown on the 27th of March 2020, many horse races and sporting events have been postponed or cancelled outright. As the world responds to the COVID-19 pandemic, many traditional venues have also closed their doors until further notice. This has seen many bettors turning to the internet for their entertainment. 

Although we’re now once again allowed to gamble in brick-and-mortar venues under strict conditions, online sites have been enjoying many more visitors than usual. Hollywoodbets is one such brand, and they’ve decided to increase their offering by making use of new technology in their online space. 

A Pin Projekt Partnership

Hollywoodbets has teamed up with Pin Projekt, a leading company in the software development arena that creates innovative gaming products. Their live Lottery titles are available as Lotto Instant Win games and Hollywoodbets is now the first bookmaker in South Africa to offer the full scope of games via video streaming. 

Players will be able to have fun with 17 new titles and draws taking place at 1-, 3-, 7-, and 10-minute intervals in four studios that provide results in real time. 

What Users Can Expect

Signing up for a new Hollywoodbets account is very simple and there’s a R25 bonus available just for registering. An array of promotions is on offer too, including a Refer a Friend Bonus, so make sure you check in regularly to stay on top of what’s available. 

The user interface and overall experience is excellent thanks to the creators making sure that navigation is not only easy, but intuitive too. Everything is clearly marked out and even if you’ve got no experience with online gameplay, you’ll have no issues figuring out where you want to go. 

Studio 4 is particularly interesting, with 9 games, all making use of a drum machine which holds 80 balls. These are all numbered from 1 through to 80 and you can choose to wager on the Lotto Instant Win 30/80 game here. A draw happens every 10 minutes and the focus are on the 30 balls chosen after the first 5. You can choose between 1 and 15 numbers and how many you manage to guess correctly determine your payout. There’s as much as R200 000 to be won.

A Brand With a Lot to Offer

Hollywoodbets has been operating for 2 decades now. They opened their first brick-and-mortar bookmaker in Durban in 2000 and went on to become one of the biggest and best-known sportsbooks in the country. They now have 80+ land-based bookmakers available around South Africa, along with their mobile and online betting platforms. This means their customers have not been inconvenienced too much during the lockdown even while their physical branches remain closed. 

The brand was ranked at No. 8 on iGaming Business Magazine’s March 2019 Top 50 Gaming Sites Worldwide, so their latest expansion makes sense. As a market leader in South Africa, and with their in-depth knowledge of what players are looking for here, they recognised a gap and filled it quickly. And now we can all enjoy live Lottery staking games to broaden the current fixed-odds wagering-on-Lotto offerings already out there. 

Along with the Lotto Instant Win option there is also a range of other gambling options available at Hollywoodbets, including Jika Sports, Ezugi Live Games, and Evolution Gaming.
