Congratulations to the third winner of our El Clasico promotion - Ntuthuko Mhlongo from KwaNongoma in KwaZulu-Natal!

Nthuthuko Mhlongo, a teacher from KwaNongoma, was overjoyed to hear that he will be traveling to Spain later this year courtesy of soccer bets he placed at Hollywoodbets Empangeni. Mhlongo is the third lucky winner of a fully-paid trip to Spain where he will get to experience one of the world’s most anticipated soccer derbies – El Clasico.

He joins previous weeks’ winners Josea Mphuthi and Mxolisi Mngoma who also can’t wait to take their seats at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium to see rival teams Real Madrid and Barcelona go head to head.

Mhlongo was driving when he received the news and had to pull over because of the excitement. “I actually had a feeling that I would win, but I was still surprised when I got the call on Friday. This great news made my day and my weekend. I am so excited to go to Spain! My family and friends were overwhelmed when they heard the news, they couldn’t believe it,” said Mhlongo.

This will be Mhlongo’s first time flying on an aeroplane, and will also be his first overseas trip. He has been betting with Hollywoodbets since 2011 and often wins when he plays on soccer. Mhlongo will be supporting Barcelona during the match on the 20th of December and is confident in his team’s ability despite the stiff competition. “We’re going to win this game. I know that for sure!”

Hollywoodbets’ Soccer Brand Manager Wayde Dorkin congratulates Mhlongo on this exciting win. “I’m thrilled that we are able to give a loyal customer like Nthuthuko this incredible experience. I know he will enjoy this match because he is a Barcelona fanatic. I’m also looking forward to showing him around Madrid, and especially the stadium itself as I’ve learnt that he enjoys watching big matches at the various South African stadiums. The Hollywoodbets team is confident this will be an unforgettable experience for him, just like it was for the winners we sent to El Clasico in April this year,” he said.
