Elys Game Technology is now operating its sportsbook service in The Cloakroom venue in Washington DC. It will be managed by Elys’s subsidiary USBookmaking for the trading services.

It is the second partnership Elys conducted in restaurant and bar venues. The company was first launched with the Grand Central Restaurant and Sportsbook in the Adams Morgan area of DC in October 2021. It has since seen growth in the following months for both Elys and Grand Central.
