You’ll find the information on Hollywood Sportsbook bonuses, incentives and betting markets below based on the successful William Hill NJ sportsbook. While the PA version has not launched yet, it is expected to follow the successful format of the NJ site. Any differences will be highlighted as soon as it goes live.
Pennsylvania sports betting will see another new mobile app with the Hollywood Sportsbook. With online sports gambling just starting in the Keystone State, Hollywood Sportsbook will be among the first to launch.
The new online platform is affiliated with the Hollywood Casino at Penn National located in Grantville, PA. Hollywood’s retail sportsbook was the first in the state to accept sports wagers. It also debuted in West Virginia and Mississippi as well.
Hollywood Casino has partnered with William Hill to help operate both the land-based and mobile sportsbooks. The online version is projected to go live this summer.
Since it hasn’t released yet, this review will speculate on what we expect the Hollywood Sportsbook will offer based on other William Hill books.
The PA sportsbook will be more than likely available for browser-based betting on a Mac or PC. The Hollywood Sportsbook mobile app will be available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Hollywood Sportsbook PA bonus offer
Based on what William Hill has offered at its NJ sportsbook, expect a bonus offer in the range of a $50 risk-free play.
After making a deposit, Hollywood will fund your account 24 hours after placing a bet for $50.

It’s possible that Hollywood Sportsbook does a deposit match as well, so stay tuned for when the mobile app hits the market.
Hollywood Sportsbook promotions
Another exciting part of waiting for the Hollywood app to release is to see what other kinds of promos it will offer new customers. The best sportsbooks always have multiple promotions running at a time to attract more interest, and it usually helps both you and the sportsbook.
Here are some of the current promotions running at the NJ sportsbook:
- Series Sweep Special: This promo gives you a $150 bonus if you can bet every game of an NBA postseason series correctly. If you’re able to bet every game before it starting and can win throughout, you will also win the bonus cash.
- Longball Parlay Cashback: The parlay promotion offers bettors insurance for placing a decent sized baseball parlay. If you lose a four-team baseball parlay, the sportsbook will provide a 20% refund of up to $50.
- Diamond Live Club: Some other promos take place over a longer duration of time. This one gives you a $10 credit for each week you wager $100 or more on live, in-game baseball lines.
It’s tough to accurately tell what Hollywood Sportsbook will roll out in terms of promotions. We expect there to be several based around the popular sporting events happening at the time of its launch.
Reasons to choose Hollywood Sportsbook
If the Hollywood Sportsbook is anything close to the William Hill version, PA bettors are in for a treat. Not only does the online book have a lot of different sports to bet, but there are also plenty of different routes to take when betting them.
Between live betting, futures and props, even seasoned gamblers will approve of the options Hollywood will provide.
The online sportsbook is also easy to use. It’s organized neatly throughout so that navigating the entire book isn’t an issue.
The most popular games of the day are presented right in the middle of the home page, while tabs along the side separate all of the other markets listed. This layout makes it easy to see what your options are and how to find what you want.
The promotions and bonuses also tend to help. Perhaps Hollywood Sportsbook will go beyond what William Hill offered in NJ to stand out to the competition in PA.
Hollywood Sportsbook app
The Hollywood Sportsbook mobile app will be a great way to place sports wagers wherever you are within Pennsylvania. iOS users will be able to download it from Apple’s app store, but Android users must download the app directly from Hollywood’s website.
Although you don’t need to be a resident in PA, you do have to be located within state borders when looking to bet. The app will use geolocation to determine if you’re outside of state lines.
One part of the mobile app that’s great is that it’s so similar to the website version. Pretty much every part of the browser-based sportsbook is how it looks on the app. This creates continuity and allows you not to miss a step while using both platforms.
The app also provides you everything you’re looking for as soon as you log on. It features the most popular sporting events along with the current live games. This gives you quality information about which games are on the schedule without having to search for them individually.
In addition to the top sporting events of the day, how the app is broken down by each sport helps a lot. By just scrolling down the main page, you’ll see the top listings for nearly every major game taking place.
Another helpful feature on the mobile sportsbook is the promotions running at the top. Some of the best weekly and daily promotions are showcased to keep customers informed and let them know helpful ways to boost their winnings.
Live betting on Hollywood Sportsbook
Also known as in play betting, live betting is one of the staples of just about every online sportsbook. Hollywood is sure to offer odds for just about every sporting event as William Hill has done.
Like how other lines are presented, the live options are organized by sport, too. This makes things easy to understand as you can easily see which games are taking place and what their updated odds are.
By clicking on a specific game, Hollywood Sportsbook will display every line listed for that particular game. These can range from updated moneylines, point spreads and totals, to alternate odds and props.
After clicking on a live game option, the sportsbook provides a live updating scoreboard that shows you exactly what’s happening in each game. This feature is great because you don’t need to be physically watching the game or using another website to determine what’s going on.
Sports selection at Hollywood Sportsbook
Hollywood Sportsbook in Pennsylvania should have a variety of sports for betting. Offerings might include:
- Auto racing

- Tennis betting
The majority of the sports include several leagues. Some of the standard leagues available at William Hill are:
- Champions League/English Premier League
- College basketball

Betting options at Hollywood Sportsbook
There should be a diverse selection of betting options. These include:
- Live in-play

With so many different ways to place a bet, you have the freedom to wager however you would like. Hopefully, Hollywood Sportsbook is the same as William Hill in this regard.
Banking at Hollywood Sportsbook
Let’s take a look at the different ways William Hill currently lets its customers in NJ move money in and out of their accounts.
You should have multiple banking options available to deposit funds into your account. These methods should include:
- Credit/debit cards, e.g., Visa and Mastercard
- ACH e-check
- Sportsbook prepaid card
- Cash at a retail location
For withdrawals, these are the most likely options:
- Sportsbook prepaid card
- Cash at a retail location
Typically, other ways can include options like PayPal, Neteller and PayNearMe. Once the Hollywood Sportsbook goes live, we’ll be sure to update this review.
Hollywood Sportsbook customer support
Customer service teams are essential in helping its customers with any issues they might be experiencing with the online sportsbook. William Hill provides support 24/7, so expect Hollywood Sportsbook to do the same.
It will most likely give its customers a choice between using a live chat, email address or telephone number to contact support.
Hollywood Sportsbook security
As a sportsbook user, you can enhance security around your account if you wish to do so. By enabling the two-factor authentication option, your betting account is safe, and you can rest knowing that your money will never be at risk.
When it’s turned on, the sportsbook will send a code to your email or phone that you’ll have to input along with your username and password when logging onto the app.
Responsible gaming on Hollywood Sportsbook
Most sportsbooks give their customers a way to practice responsible gambling. You’re able to set limitations on things such as deposits, wagers and time spent on the sportsbook.
You can even decide to exclude yourself from logging in for a set period of time. Expect Hollywood to have some option for this.
Hollywood Sportsbook loyalty program
Unfortunately, William Hill does not have a loyalty program tied to its mobile sportsbook right now. It will be interesting to see if it establishes one by the time the Hollywood Sportsbook hits the market.
History of Hollywood Casino
As mentioned, the Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course was the first land-based location to offer sports betting in the state of PA. It’s located in Grantville, PA, and first opened in 1972. The site acted strictly as a thoroughbred horse racing track for some time.
In 2010, the casino was reconstructed with more slots and table games, making it one of the larger casinos in the area.
Hollywood debuted its retail sportsbook on Nov. 16, 2018. It was the only sports betting location in PA for about a month until SugarHouse and Rivers Casinos began accepting wagers.
The land-based sportsbook is open seven days a week, closing at midnight every day.
Soon, its online version will be available to anyone in PA. The mobile app is projected to be released in May or June of this year.
Penn National and William Hill announced their partnership in March to help bring retail and mobile sports betting to several Penn’s locations across the country.
