Hollywoodbets announced a cooperation with Twain Sports. Thereby, the new sports betting platform signed the second partnership in the content within a brief period and strengthened its presence in Africa. Additionally, one of the most popular bookmakers in South Africa intensifies a cooperation with the operator BetGames. Moreover, the company plans to continue launching the hybrid sports product developed by Twain Sports in South Africa plus in other countries where it already has a presence.
Hollywoodbets’ Head of Product, Wayde Dorkin, commented: “There wasn’t a product like this in our market before. So, we are obviously very excited to introduce this unique product to our customers. The available betting markets and the high-speed play are perfect for today’s consumers. Plus, the prospect of T-Kick’s imminent completion makes the excitement even greater.”
Additionally to T-Basket, T-Kick will follow for football fans
Twain Sports states that its virtual basketball and football products, T-Basket, and T-Kick, will satisfy the growing demand for entertaining products among younger bettors in Africa. Furthermore, through its basketball offering, Twain Sports runs head-to-head tournaments every hour, with matches that start every three minutes. Thus, a total of 6,300 fixtures take place every month. Last week, Betway signed a similar partnership with Twain Sports. It centres, for now, on the launch of T-Basket in South Africa, too. BetGames’ expansion plans for Twain Sports in Africa include the roll-out of T-Kick in the first quarter of next year.
Simultaneously, the company expects T-Basket to “appeal to multiple audiences” in South Africa. BetGames’ Sales Director for Africa, James Everett, added: “We registered an enormous success with the launch of Twain Sport in Europe. Therefore, we are equally excited to partner with Hollywoodbets. Because: It will significantly boost our fast-growing brand. T-Basket already enjoys great popularity in Africa. Additionally, the anticipation of a similar product dedicated to football, T-Kick, will increase the sales.”

Alice is half Austrian and half Italian. That's why she experienced the 1990 World Cup in Italy at first hand. And that awakened her enthusiasm for football. Since she has loved writing since childhood, Alice began to study journalism while still at school. It was very convenient for her that her class took part in a project of a German daily newspaper. She was also allowed to write for the children's pages of an Austrian daily newspaper and to get a taste of the sports department of the same medium. This is how she received her first press accreditations, which was of course anything but a matter of course for the then 18-year-old.
Although she was partly advised against it, Alice decided to study journalism and communication sciences. After a few years, she decided to use the exams she had taken as an elective. Nevertheless, she applies the knowledge she has acquired in her further professional life. The same applies to her language skills. In addition to her mother tongues German and Italian, Alice is also proficient in English and Spanish. She also understands French and can use this language in research.
During her studies, Alice was involved in an Austrian football club. At the same time, she wrote for a total of three Austrian portals and worked as an Austria correspondent for an Italian-language online medium. This collaboration started during Giovanni Trapattoni's era at Red Bull Salzburg and continued during EURO 2008. This gave her the opportunity to interact with Trapattoni as well as with Italian journalists.
From the following year, Alice initially worked with a Swiss portal before discovering sports betting content for herself. On the one hand, this kept her in sports journalism, and on the other, it broadened her horizons. And that both in the context of the sports betting industry and with other sports as well as countries. In the field of sports journalism, she focused in particular on football from around the world, volleyball and beach volleyball.
In addition, she naturally wrote several guides, bookmaker profiles, bonus articles and other content for betting enthusiasts. She did this for the same company for about ten years, writing articles in German and Italian. She also built the Italian-language website together with the managing director. Meanwhile, Alice started working with another Austrian football club. Furthermore, she joined the Association Internationale de la Presse Sportive (AIPS) in 2016. This gives her the opportunity to watch teams and athletes on the ground relatively often.
Not only sports betting, but also radio
In January 2019, the next step in her professional development followed. For: she started creating premium content on the topic of sports betting. In the process, she finally put out feelers to almost all countries and all continents. And this was not least due to the fact that both German and English-speaking users subscribed to her content. Nevertheless, Alice continued to use her knowledge of Italian, among other things. On the one hand, because she regularly exchanges ideas with Italian colleagues, and on the other, because she works with a web radio station.
The Corona crisis had a strong impact on the sports world and on interest in sports betting, primarily in the early days. Therefore, a fresh start was necessary and, on balance, Alice found the fields of activity that suited her best. She also writes articles for an agency on almost all disciplines as well as on eSports and content for a German online medium.
