Good evening Bob and Dave

Are you able to put me in touch with someone that can either make decisions in HW or perhaps someone that knows what is going on.

My query is as follows

Sunday afternoon, i requested an ewallet withdrawl. An hour later I got a text stating it was paid to me. So I decided I will draw it on Monday morning.

On Monday I tried to access my ewallet account and found out that FNB has locked my account. I call FNB and they confirm that whoever has sent me funds has actually requested a reversal therefore my account is locked. I was then busy all day amd in the evening i contacted the unhelpful,rude call centre whom lacks everything and was told the reason for this is due to the fact that HW has actually made an error and processed a certain batch of clients Withdrawals in ewallet as duplicate.

So from this point I can understand the reason. What aches me that I am being shoved from pillar to lolly to get a turn around time for my funds.

All things equal HW will not lay me a bet and wait 3-5 working days for payment therefore the same principal I want my funds. Or I want someone to tell me exactly when I will get my funds.

Many will wonder why I am using this facility when EFT is available. Well I sent my bank details update previously to no success. Therefore that's my one struggle.

Today I sent an email to a SimonB @ HW and no response. ( in his defence probably did not see my email YET)

I cannot understand why I should wait when they can confirm with the bank that the funds is there and cancel and rather send me what is due to me.

Never mind my many calls to clueless call centre agents and repeatedly requesting for a manager/supervisor. Two calls actually just rang constantly after selecting withdrawals department.

This is a total poor showing from what seems to be the fastest growing business.

Please point me to the right person if you can.

Hi Dean

I’m sure one of the HW guys will private message you.

I’m not 100% sure about E Wallet withdrawals but don’t they have a time limit that your get to access the funds?

Plus I hear FNB are trying to force their EWallet clients to open an account called “Easy Zero”

Cheers Bob. I hope someone can resolve it asap


Ewallet no time limit as it can remain in your profile for as long as you prefer. You login and populate a pin for when you would like to draw. The pin that is then generated normally lasts for a good few hours.

The ewallet daily withdrawal limit is 3k though.

On a normal day the ewallet (FNB) instant money ( STD Bank) Cash send (ABSA) works great.

And the only reason I use this option is because I cannot get my bank details updated with HW.

I think you confusing the pin that us valid for 24 hrs.

Once the pin has expired, you are able to logon using the ussd code for fnb and obtain a new pin or even purchase airtime.

The reason for using eWallet aside, if it is offered as a payment option then it should be completed as such. The thread here is on why the delay in payment following an apparent error and reversal on their side?

I use the standard bank cash withdraw and never had a problem. As for service it’s non existent,I understand what you are going through with getting bank details loaded, it recently took someone I know nearly to months just to get fica done, their account was blocked for the two months, I saw all the emails sent ,must have been close to 100 emails and got silly replies. If you go onto hello peter you will find pages and pages of similar complaints.
In fact I find Hollywood to be one of the best bookmakers around but their staff need to be trained.

I got a call from Grant who has resolved my query and further assisting with loading my bank details.

It's a pity that I had to resort to listing my query on here for resolution.

Thanks for escalating my query Dev.

Cheers.

Hollywoodbets must be the best employers in the business. They employ and pay people that won’t have a job anywhere else for more than a couple of hours.
Email queries to any department simply don’t get any response – and when you’re lucky enough to get an answer it is total gibberish.

Ignorance doesn't kill you, but it makes you sweat a lot.

Wrong fingers.
The tote will employ the ones that don't last at Hollywoodbets.
At least Hollywoods come on here and sort things out.
Try get an answer from Tabgold and yes they are members here.
The best under the carpet sweepers in the business.

I would like to comment on this thread since my experience.

My banking details were loaded onto their system.

They have resolved the initial error.

The reason for my post though is that HW is actually top class when it comes to making EFTs. I have tested a few small withdrawls this week and WOW. 2 hours was too long.

I do not want to mention my few DAYS delay last week from another bookmaker for a number of different Withdrawals. (For another day)

Well done guys.

It is race 6 so they will obviously refund whoever took the wrong jackpot with them but now they need to open up the proper jackpot in Launceston which starts in race 6,it's not available to take at the moment.
