Regarding the period when you were under DOS attack, how were you able to finally solve the problem and do you forsee it becoming a problem down the road.

DrunkenGoon (Dec 9, 2003 9:02:08 PM)
A multi part question... When can we expect College bowl totals... Also, I see that you're always adding to your soccer menu, when can we expect totals on the major leagues in europe and what are the chances you'll add France to your list of covered countries.... Thanks

There is no absolute solution to Denial of Service attacks. It is still possible to take down sites like Amazon and Yahoo with DDOS. Mitigating DDOS attacks is non-trivial and involves software + hardware + sh*t loads of bandwith

Hollywood_Fernando (Dec 9, 2003 9:07:02 PM)
We will have all the bowl totals up on Monday Morning.

Hollywood_Fernando (Dec 9, 2003 9:07:51 PM)
We are planning on adding France but I don't see totals in the near future

Fernando, first of all let me welcome you to MajorWager, we have met years ago and it is nice to see you ago. My question is this... How did you... or do you find the transition from the "local bookmaker" world to offshore and are they any notable differences that you have had to make to your style?. I will ad as an editorial that Fernado is one of the most recognizable names in the "who's who" of linesmaking.

Hollywood_Fernando (Dec 9, 2003 9:24:33 PM)
With the advent of the computers in bookmaking, it is easier now to grade all the games, to see where we stand on the games....but the hours are longer and with so much information out there, it has helped the bookmake because we have access to a lot of information that was unavailable to us when we sat in apartments taking bets

The_Major (Dec 9, 2003 9:25:17 PM)
Thanks for that Fernando, not so many squares left I guess

hockeyguru (Dec 9, 2003 9:35:55 PM)
Hello HollyWood, With so many books offering (copying) player and team props solely for entertainment it's great to see a book that really takes a stand with their own unique props in order to make a profit. I hope that the action that you've booked on your nfl props has you considering the option of posting nba, ncaa and nhl props as well. You've obviously got some good talent on your side of the table which is more than I can say for 95% of the books out there so , although there are only 24 hours in every day I hope that you use it and expand your prop offerings to other sports because I think that you'll find that it'll be worth it and then some. So, when can we expect to see player props for nba, ncaa and nhl games?

Chatmaster (Dec 9, 2003 9:37:15 PM)
hg u there?

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:37:17 PM)
Hello HockeyGuru, that's a great question indeed. We appreciate your knowledgeable approach to our lines. As you might understand...

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:37:38 PM)
the proposition wagers take a lot of time and man power to create

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:38:20 PM)
we're always looking to post an original number and that number is always the result of an long process of research...

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:38:47 PM)

In terms of handle , percentage wise roughly how much do you book on the Sunday/Monday night NFL game compared to the rest of weeks pro action? How did hollywood do on the rams/browns?

hockeyguru (Dec 9, 2003 9:40:06 PM)
well I just wanted to thank you for offering props that can be bet on instead of the policy of most books out there which is either (a) to copy or (b) to post coinflip props

PANCHO_SANZA (Dec 9, 2003 9:40:28 PM)

BuzzRavanaugh (Dec 9, 2003 9:43:53 PM)
I really enjoy playing at your book, the service has been great and I enjoy the good lines. The props are very good. I also think that you are one of the few books that fully utilizes the forums to assist with marketing and Will does a great job in that area. My question has to do with golf beginning to start up in a month will you be posting golf match ups. I know golf is tough for the books but will you be trying your own match ups or at least offer what the other books are offering??

TTinCO (Dec 9, 2003 9:49:24 PM)
To whomever it best applies....There seems to be some confusion amongst players regarding your -107 offerings. Can you give a brief rundown on what you do & don't offer 107 on? Also, how much of a boost did the drop to 107 give you guys as far as post ups during this ruthlessly competitive season?

TTinCO: let me give you and the rest of the guys a short rundown on the benefits and restrictions of the -107...

Chatmaster (Dec 9, 2003 9:50:46 PM)
ill smack his around a bit then toss him to gold

Chatmaster (Dec 9, 2003 9:50:50 PM)
oops

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:50:53 PM)
First of all, you guys need to request it by simply sending us an e-mail to will@hollywoodsportsbook.com

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:51:16 PM)
you will receive a 10% sign-up bonus, 5 X roll over

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:51:49 PM)
and you wil be able to lay -107 for every straight wager on NFL, NBA, NCAA, and NHL

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:51:59 PM)
the limits are 3k on sides, 1k on totals

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:52:29 PM)
and customers taking advantage of these lines are not eligible to recive any other form of bonus or perk

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:52:51 PM)
that would exclude Loyalty Program, re-up bonuses and Load-up Fridays

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:53:47 PM)
-107 includes all wagers, 1st and 2nd halves

BENN (Dec 9, 2003 9:53:56 PM)
id like -101

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:53:57 PM)
1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th quarters

TTinCO (Dec 9, 2003 9:54:03 PM)

BENN (Dec 9, 2003 9:55:57 PM)
its the most valuable commodity i know of

raisencain (Dec 9, 2003 9:56:02 PM)
TT touched upon most of it, and wil did a great job to answer him............to add on a bit though, what % of customers choose the -107 option versus the other lines, and what is/are the benifits of not taking -107 if you get the bonus/re-up bonus/loyalty program/load up fridays, etc when you take the -107 offer?

raisencain (Dec 9, 2003 9:56:30 PM)

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:58:25 PM)
As for the benefits

Halifax (Dec 9, 2003 9:58:29 PM)

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 9:58:48 PM)

PANCHO_SANZA (Dec 9, 2003 10:01:07 PM)

PANCHO_SANZA (Dec 9, 2003 10:04:04 PM)
no one can win according to you so whats the diff?

parlaythis (Dec 9, 2003 10:04:05 PM)
Will: Hollywood offers lots of free contests -- something other books are increasingly shying away from. Do you think the return justifies it, or is it something you mostly look at as a loss leader to foster goodwill?

BENN (Dec 9, 2003 10:04:18 PM)
bleed even slower

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 10:05:52 PM)
our contest were intended as marketing tools, but we have found sad cases of abusers, Parlaythis. We're afraid we will start cuttinmg down these type of gratuity. It was also intended to offer a well deserved kick-back to our loyal customers

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 10:06:00 PM)
but in thefuture

Hollywood_Sportsbook (Dec 9, 2003 10:06:11 PM)
