Hollywoodbets, one of South Africa’s largest operators, is expanding its repertoire even further thanks to a new collaboration with supplier Light & Wonder. This joint effort is quite historic as it marks Light & Wonder’s very first foray into the South African landscape. Our local space is an emergent one, we’ve been seeing more and more providers venturing into the country which adds further validation and proves that South Africa is a market to watch.

In a move that strengthened its position within the iGaming industry, Light & Wonder also recently acquired SciPlay, a move which further bolstered its cross-platform strategy.

This collaboration was given the green light by the Western Cape Gambling & Racing Board (WCGRB) as well as the Mpumalanga Economic Regulator.

Hollywoodbets, not content with adding just one supplier to its ranks, is looking to include additional third-party studios to its ever-expanding library. These studios include ELK Studios, ReelPlay, Big Time Gaming, Fantasma, G Games, Relax Gaming, Blueprint, Greentube, Gaming Realms, and Inspired. Soon, Hollywoodbets players will be able to add so many more titles and experiences to their favourites list.
