The grant was announced for ELYS and the Cloakbook, LLC (“Cloakbook”), a joint venture between the Company and the Cloakroom Gentlemen’s Club DC (“Cloakroom”), an independently owned company located at 476 K St NW in Washington, D.C.
ELYS anticipates a modest debut in advance of the hectic New Year’s Eve sports weekend, with the first bets scheduled for today at 4:00 PM (EST) in the Cloakroom and Over Under Sportsbook Rooftop Lounge (“Over Under”).
