AMENDED AND RESTATED CREDIT AGREEMENT

This FORBEARANCE TO AMENDED AND RESTATED CREDIT AGREEMENT (this “Forbearance”), dated as of May 13, 2021 (the “Forbearance Date”), is made between GALAXY GAMING, INC., a Nevada corporation (the “Borrower”), and ZIONS BANCORPORATION, N.A. dba NEVADA STATE BANK, a Nevada state banking corporation (the “Lender”).

RECITALS

A.          The Lender and the Borrower entered into an Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of March 29, 2021 (as amended, restated, or otherwise modified, the “Credit Agreement”), pursuant to which the Lender agreed to extend credit to the Borrower.

B.          The Borrower has informed the Lender that as a result of the COVID-19 worldwide pandemic, the Borrower is likely to fail to comply with the financial covenants in Section 6.16(b) (Total Leverage Ratio) and Section 6.21 (Minimum EBITDA) of the Credit Agreement for the measurement dates of June 30, 2021 and September 30, 2021, each of which failures would constitute an Event of Default under Section 7.l(c) of the Credit Agreement (collectively, the “Potential Defaults”).

C.          The Borrower has requested that the Lender forbear from exercising its rights and remedies under the Credit Agreement and the other Loan Documents with respect to the Potential Defaults, and, subject to compliance with the terms and conditions set forth in this Forbearance, the Lender has agreed to forbear.

AGREEMENT

NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and adequacy of which are hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows.

Section 1.          Capitalized Terms. Capitalized terms not defined shall have the meanings assigned to them in the Credit Agreement, unless the context shall otherwise require.

Section 2.          Definition.

Additional Event of Default” shall mean either (a) the Borrower’s failure to comply with any term or condition of this Forbearance or (b) the occurrence of an Event of Default other than the Potential Defaults, whether the same occurred before, on, or after the Forbearance Date.

Section 3.          Acknowledgment of Indebtedness and Lender’s Right to Payment. The Borrower hereby acknowledges and agrees as follows:

(a)         As of the Forbearance Date, the principal balance due on the Obligations in respect of the Loans owing under the Credit Agreement is as follows:

Term Loan: $6,771,000

Revolving Loan: $1,000,000

(b)         The Obligations in respect of the Loans arising under the Loan Documents also include interest, fees, and expenses as set forth in the Loan Documents.


(c)         As of the Forbearance Date, the Obligations of the Borrower to the Lender as described in Sections 3(a) and 3(b) above are owing by the Borrower to the Lender without any existing defense, deduction, offset, or counterclaim.

(d)         As of the Forbearance Date, the Loan Documents executed by the Borrower are the legal, valid, and binding obligations of the Borrower and enforceable against the Borrower in accordance with their respective terms (except as such enforceability may be limited by applicable bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, moratorium, or similar laws affecting creditors’ rights generally and by general principles of equity), without any existing defenses, deductions, offsets, or counterclaims.

Section 4.          Forbearance. The Lender agrees that it will forbear from exercising any of its rights or remedies under the Loan Documents as the result of the Potential Defaults, until the earliest to occur of the following:

(a)         any Additional Event of Default occurs under the Loan Documents;

(b)         any representation or warranty of the Borrower made herein or in the Loan Documents shall prove to be false, misleading, or incorrect in any material respect;

(c)         the occurrence after the Forbearance Date of any event that constitutes a Material Adverse Occurrence, other than the Potential Defaults;

(d)         any judicial, administrative, or arbitration proceeding is initiated or joined by the Borrower against the Lender; and

(e)         October 1, 2021 (the “Forbearance Termination Date”)

(each, a “Forbearance Termination Event”). The foregoing agreement to forbear is for the
limited purpose set forth herein, shall be limited to the precise meaning of the words as written
herein, and shall not be deemed to (x) be a consent to any waiver or modification of any term or
condition of the Loan Documents, except as otherwise expressly set forth herein, or (y) subject to giving effect to this Forbearance, prejudice any right or remedy that the Lender may now have or may have in the future under or in connection with the Loan Documents, including, without limitation, any right to apply proceeds of the Security Documents Collateral to the Obligations. The Borrower acknowledges that the Lender has no obligation to forbear beyond the Forbearance Termination Date, extend the Forbearance Termination Date, or grant any other forbearance. All reasonable expenses incurred by the Lender in entering, administering, and enforcing this Forbearance will be reimbursed by the Borrower.

Section 5.          Effect of Termination of Forbearance Period. Upon the occurrence of a Forbearance Termination Event other than the occurrence of the Forbearance Termination Date, the Lender shall give the Borrower written notice thereof in conformance with Section 8.4 (Notices) of the Credit Agreement, which notice shall state with specificity the Forbearance Termination Event, following which, the Lender shall be entitled to exercise any and all rights and remedies available under the Loan Documents, under this Forbearance, under any other agreement between the Borrower and the Lender or at law or in equity arising from and by reason of the applicable Forbearance Termination Event. Upon the occurrence of the Forbearance Termination Date, if the conditions set forth in Section 6 below have been satisfied, then no Event of Default shall be deemed to have occurred with respect to any Potential Defaults, and the Lender shall permanently refrain from exercising any right or remedy that Lender may now or hereafter have under or in connection with the Loan Documents arising from or by reason of the occurrence of any Potential Defaults. Nothing in this Forbearance limits the rights of the Lender at any time on or after the occurrence of a Forbearance Termination Event other than the occurrence of the Forbearance Termination Date to foreclose on any Security Documents Collateral that secures the Obligations by reason of the occurrence of an Event of Default.
