The Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) has appointed Che Chou, Senior Director of Esports at Ubisoft Entertainment, to its Esports Technical Advisory Committee (ETAC).
Mr. Chou becomes the eighth member of ETAC, joining representatives from Activision, Allied Esports, Penn National Gaming and Twitch. ETAC was formed by the Gaming Control Board in November 2021 with the objective of developing esports betting opportunities in Nevada. Current state regulations allow esports wagering on a per-event basis only, with operators required to apply to the NGCB for approval for each competition.
Che Chou is responsible for Ubisoft’s esports strategy and development, and an NGCB statement said: “Mr. Chou is passionate about the intersection of esports and gaming and has a deep understanding of esports strategies, ecosystems and community building.”
