Board of Adjudicators

Let us introduce our

Network of Experts

MADRE has established a large network of experts from the gambling industry, mainly with legal background, to serve as adjudicators in cases where the MADRE adjudication staff cannot reach a solution. This could happen for instance if there is the risk of conflict of interest, the requirement of special legal or technical skills and involvement of foreign jurisdictions.

The Board of Adjudicators also provides MADRE with strategic advice on ongoing legal developments and new trends in the industry.
