Betting starts at just R1 and is capped at a whopping R100 000 at the Salon Prive Roulette tables.

How Does Roulette Work?

Rules can vary slightly across game styles but the basic premise of Roulette is to bet on the winning number, colour or relative position of the ball after the wheel has been spun.

Other Roulette Games at Hollywoodbets

Normal Roulette

This is the traditional roulette you’ll find in any land-based casino. The game format that players would have become familiar with in land-based institutions. The game involves players placing bets on where the ball will land when the roulette wheel is spun. Types of bets include Inside bets placed on one or more numbers and Outside bets as well as proposition bets such as odd/even, high-low, red/black or 1st/2nd/3rd dozen.

Double Ball Roulette

Double Ball Roulette is played like the traditional game, but with two balls released into the wheel at once. They both travel in the same direction and speed, with one ball right behind the other. The traditional 1-36 wheel is used for this game which means you have twice as many chances of winning. The odds for each outcome are halved and if both balls land on any correct number you bet, you win the Double Ball Jackpot which pays 1200/1!

Lightning Roulette

Lightning Roulette is a high-action version of traditional-style roulette with multiplier bonuses adding to the excitement! Each game round sees lightning strikes up to five numbers, enabling a multiplier bonus between 50x and 500x. All of the standard roulette bets like Inside, Outside and Neighbours are also available in this electrifying game.

Hollywoodbets Casino Blackjack

Hollywoodbets offers a wide range of Blackjack tables with varied game styles and bet sizes, starting with R5 Party Blackjack tables and including R15 000 Salon Prive tables where you’ll play alone with the dealer. The more popular R100, R200, R500 tables are often quite busy so you might have to wait for a seat to play at them.

How Does Blackjack Work?

The player and dealer are dealt two cards each. One of the dealer’s cards is hidden until the end of the round. The aim of blackjack is to beat the dealer’s hand without going over 21. Face cards are worth 10. Aces are worth 1 or 11 (whichever makes a better hand).

After receiving your two cards you can either ask for another card (‘Hit’) or ‘Stand’ and end your turn. If you go over 21, you’re bust and the dealer wins. If you stand and your total is closer to 21, you win. If it’s a tie, your bet is a push. If you’re dealt 21 from the start (Ace & 10), you also win.

How Does Baccarat Work?

Baccarat is a game played against the dealer where you are both dealt two cards at the start of each round. If either the player or banker is dealt a total of eight or nine, they must stand (not receive another card).

If the player’s total is five or less, then the player must hit (receive another card). Otherwise, the player will stand. If the player stands, then the banker must hit on a total of five or less. Read more about the rules and betting odds for Baccarat here.

To get started, you will need to set your card value and the number of cards you want to buy. To improve your chances of winning, you must increase the number of cards you buy. To make your potential payout bigger, you will need to increase the value of each card.

Based on the popular TV show, Deal or No Deal is a unique, multi-faceted live game where players must choose and eliminate briefcases, hoping to leave only the ones with big sums of money behind. The game allows an unlimited number of online players all gunning for a huge cash prize.

How Does Deal Or No Deal Work?

Players must first qualify for the main game by spinning and aligning gold segments on a bank vault to unlock it. The higher your bet size, the easier it is to unlock the vault and qualify for the main game. Next, you’ll place bets to determine the cash prize you play for in the main round.

Once qualified, the aim of the main game is to predict whether the amount of money in the remaining briefcases will be higher than the banker’s offer. You must try to eliminate the low-value briefcases to increase the banker’s offer. If you like the banker’s offer, click “Deal”. If you think it’s too low, click “No Deal” and keep playing for the main prize.

Speedy 7

Speedy 7 consists of seven betting rounds. During each round players must bet on the colour of the card to be dealt next. The dealer deals a total of 7 cards per game, and punters are given a chance to bet on the colour of each card before it is drawn. When you guess a card correctly, you will get paid out at odds of 9/10. For example, if you bet R10 and win, you will get R19 back.

After each card has been dealt, a cash out option is available if you do not wish to bet your winnings on the next card. Should you get 4 correct predictions in a row you’ll earn a bonus on your winnings. Guess 7 correctly and you’ll get a bigger bonus on top of your winnings. Watch this video of us playing Speedy 7 to learn more.

Dice Duel

Dice Duel features two standard six-sided dice, one red and one blue. Before each roll, players bet on different outcomes such as which die will be higher or if there will be a tie. Other markets include a certain number being rolled on either die, the number of pips on either die being odd or oven, the total pips combined being over or under a certain number, and lots more.

With new rounds taking place every minute, the speed of gameplay is fast and not suited to everyone. That said, the number of bets available are fewer than other games which makes it easier to review all your options. Watch this video of us playing Dice Duel to learn more.

6+ Poker

6+ Poker is similar in style to Texas Hold’em Poker. It is also played against the dealer but with a reduced deck of 36 cards. In the first betting round before the game starts, punters place a bet on what kind of hand they think they will get. Weaker hands like a pair offer small odds while stronger hands like a straight can pay big.

Players have the opportunity to bet before each card is revealed and the odds offered for each hand change accordingly. Unlike some other versions of poker where the minimum bet is R5, you can play 6+ Poker for as little as R1 making it more accessible for first-timers. Watch this video and learn how to play 6+ Poker in just two minutes.

Bet On Poker

Bet On Poker is a unique format of the popular card game where you are dealt 6 hands at the same time. The aim of the game is to predict and bet on which hand will win after all the cards are drawn. Each game comprises four rounds of betting and the odds for each hand are adjusted after each draw. Bets in the first round are placed before any cards are dealt.

In Round 2, you have the opportunity to bet on the winner based on the first card dealt for each hand. In Round 3, you will see the flop (first three community cards) before placing more bets.

The final round of betting begins when the fourth community card is drawn (the turn). The final community card is then drawn and the winning hand is declared. If there is more than one hand with the best combination, the game is considered a draw and any bets on those hands will be returned to the player. Watch this video and learn how to play Bet On Poker like a pro! 

Bet On Baccarat

Bet On Baccarat is played the same way as normal Baccarat except that in the BetGames version there are more ways to win. You can place bets before the cards are dealt and also after the first cards are dealt. Instead of just predicting which hand will win or a tie, you can also bet on results such as a player pair, banker pair, either pair, perfect pair, small or big.

How it works is that the player and banker are each dealt two cards at the start of each round. If either has a total of eight or nine, they must stand (not receive another card). If the player’s total is five or less, then the player must hit (receive another card). Otherwise, the player will stand. If the player stands, then the banker must hit on a total of five or less. Want to know more? Read our introductory guide to playing Bet On Baccarat.

Wheel Of Fortune

Wheel Of Fortune comprises 19 numbered segments with one of these representing a bonus that pays 18/1 should you bet on it. All bets need to be placed before the wheel is spun which must complete three revolutions to be considered a valid spin.

Your betting options include Numbers (single numbers, ranges, high/low), Colours (grey, red or black segment) and Odd/Even (overall, grey, red or black segment).

Watch this video of us playing Wheel of Fortune to learn more.

War Of Bets

War of Bets is probably the most straightforward casino-style game available on the BetGames platform. It involves a single card being drawn for the player, and another for the dealer from a 52-card deck. How the game works is that you bet on who will get the higher card or if there will be ‘War’ (a tie). In this situation, any bets on either player will lose.

There are two rounds of betting for each game, the first before any cards are dealt and another after the player’s card is dealt. The dealer’s card is then revealed to determine the winner. To browse our video archive of everything BetGames related, follow this link
