The venue is located in Parkville, Maryland. Through the agreement, Elys will receive a percentage of all sports betting revenue generated, pending final regulatory approval by the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission.
“We are delighted to partner with Elys to provide sportsbook services within the Top Hat Sports Bar & Grill located in Parkville, Maryland,” said Bookmakers Owner Karen Senac.
“Elys’ experience in the market, ease of use for players and reporting for regulatory compliance is what drove Bookmakers to select and sign with Elys. We expect that their “Build-A-Bet” feature will be especially attractive to our customers. We are excited about the prospect of offering yet another layer of entertainment to the customers of this already busy establishment.
“I am truly excited at the prospect of being part of this progressive programme in the state of Maryland and appreciate the support of the Maryland Lottery and Gaming Control Commission in driving new revenue streams to support locally owned businesses.”
Elys Game Technology Executive Chairman Michele Ciavarella commented: “We are pleased to enter this partnership with Bookmakers, LLC to provide them with an end-to-end, best-in-class sportsbook solution for their customers.
“Top Hat Sports Bar & Grill, Parkville’s premier pool hall for over three decades, includes a sports bar and lounge area with multiple flat screen TVs for viewing your favourite sports, making it an ideal location to include our sportsbook solution for their customers.
“We look forward to working with Karen Senac and the Bookmakers team to fulfil their inaugural sportsbook goals.”
Ciavarella added that Elys aims to continue to “aggressively develop” its sales pipeline with additional bars, restaurants and other retail establishments to implement its sportsbook solution across the US.
