WHEREAS, Executive has informed the Company of his intention to change his role within the Company in order to relocate his family out of Nevada;

WHEREAS, Executive is willing to continue serving as CEO through a transition period, in order to assist GameTech in transition to a new President and CEO;

WHEREAS, the parties agree that Executive will continue his employment with GameTech through a transition period, on the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Agreement;

AND NOW, for and in consideration of the mutual covenants contained in this Agreement, and other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and legal sufficiency of which are acknowledged, GameTech and Executive agree as follows:

Transition.  Executive and GameTech agree that Executive’s resignation as President and CEO shall take effect on the earlier to occur of: (a) the close of business on the date GameTech’s fiscal year 2011 Second Quarter 10-Q Report is completed and filed, or (2) on the date that the GameTech Board of Directors appoints a new President and CEO (the “Transition Date”).  Effective as of the end of business on the Transition Date, Executive’s status with the Company shall convert to that of a consultant and he shall no longer serve as an executive officer of the Company.  Without limiting the forgoing, Executive shall be deemed to have resigned from his employment and his position as President and CEO of GameTech and from any and all other offices and all other positions with GameTech subsidiaries, on the Transition Date, without further action on his part.  The period between the date the parties execute this Agreement and the Transition Date is hereafter referred to as the “Transition Period.”  Following the Transition Period, unless this Agreement is terminated earlier, Executive shall remain engaged by the Company as a consultant through November 11, 2011 (the “Departure Date”).

Duties and Responsibilities of Executive.

President and CEO. For so long as Executive remains as President and CEO of the Company, Executive shall continue to diligently perform his normal duties and responsibilities as President and CEO, including but not limited to, all of the duties related to the completion and filing of GameTech’s fiscal year 2011 Second Quarter 10-Q Report, and such other tasks as the GameTech Board of Directors may reasonably assign to him.  GameTech reserves the right to begin transitioning duties to other employees during the Transition Period as it determines necessary or appropriate.  Executive agrees to perform his duties and responsibilities during the Transition Period to the best of his abilities, and in an efficient and timely manner, and agrees to devote adequate time and effort during the Transition Period to the performance of his remaining duties and responsibilities as President and CEO.

Consulting Services.  From the Transition Date until the Departure Date, Executive agrees to provide advisory services at mutually agreed upon times and shall make himself available to perform consulting services with respect to the business conducted by the Company.  Such consulting services shall be related to such matters as the Chairman, the Chief Executive Officer, or  the Chief Restructuring Officer of the Company may designate from time to time, and may include advisement with respect to strategic matters and product development.  Executive shall comply with reasonable requests for these services and shall devote reasonable time and his reasonable best efforts, skill and attention to the performance of such consulting services.

Compensation and Other Consideration.  In consideration for the services Executive performs during the term of this Agreement, and subject to his compliance with the conditions, obligations, and other provisions contained in this Agreement, Executive shall receive the following:
Compensation.  Executive will continue to receive his current base salary through the pay period ending May 27, 2011.  Thereafter and until the Departure Date, Executive will be compensated a total amount of One-hundred and Ten Thousand Dollars ($110,000), less applicable payroll taxes and income tax withholdings, which will be paid at regular payroll intervals in installments equal to current paycheck.  Executive acknowledges and agrees that the amounts to be paid to him, pursuant to this Subsection 3(a), are inclusive of all paid time off (PTO) accrued prior to May 27, 2011.
Expense Reimbursement. The Company shall continue to reimburse Executive for all reasonable expenses incurred by Executive: (1) through the Transition Date, in performing his duties and responsibilities to the Company; and (2) through the Departure Date, in performing consulting services on behalf of the Company, and which are proper pursuant to the Company’s expense reimbursement policy.
Benefits.  Executive will remain eligible, through the Departure Date, to participate in any GameTech benefit plan(s), in which he is currently participating or otherwise eligible to participate in, subject to the eligibility and other requirements of each plan and subject to Executive paying the employee portion of any premiums or contributions required by the terms of the respective plans.  Executive's health insurance benefits will cease on the last day of November 2011, subject to Executive's right to continue his health insurance under COBRA.  Notwithstanding the forgoing, Executive shall no longer accrue paid time off (PTO) after the pay period ending May 27, 2011.
Time-off For Transition-related Activities.  GameTech understands that Executive may desire to take time off during the Transition Period to coordinate his relocation out of Nevada and/or to follow up on new employment opportunities. GameTech is willing to allow Executive to take time off for such activities, provided that Executive gives reasonable advance notice of the days he plans to take off.
Equity Awards.  GameTech and Executive agree that the consulting services to be provided pursuant to this Agreement constitute “Continuous Service” to the Company for purposes of any outstanding equity award previously granted to Executive.  Accordingly, any equity awards previously granted to Executive shall continue to vest until the Departure Date and all vested portions thereof shall be exercisable prior and following the Departure Date in accordance with the terms and conditions of each equity award agreement between GameTech and Executive.
Company Vehicles and Computer Equipment. On or before the Departure Date, GameTech will sell to Executive, at fair market value, the 2004 Nissan Maxima and the Apple laptop, iPhone, and iPad used by Executive, free and clear of all liens and encumbrances.
No Other Payments.  Except as set forth above, GameTech shall not be obligated to provide any other benefits or make any further or additional payment to Executive in any amount or for any purpose whatsoever.

Release of and Waiver of All Claims.  In consideration for the receipt and retention of the payments and additional benefits provided to Executive hereunder to which he is not otherwise entitled, Executive agrees as follows:

Current Release and Waiver of All Claims.  Except for those obligations contained in this Agreement, Executive fully, finally, and forever releases, waives, and forever discharges GameTech, its successors, subsidiaries, assigns, agents, directors, officers, employees, representatives, attorneys, insurance carriers, and all persons acting by, through, under or in concert with any of them (the “Released Parties”), from any and all charges, complaints, claims, controversies, demands, rights, disputes, and causes of action of any nature whatsoever, whether known or unknown, asserted or unasserted, accrued or not accrued, arising before or existing on the date Executive executes this Agreement, which Executive may have or claim to have against any of the Released Parties regarding any matter, including but not limited to any claims that could be raised related to the employment relationship between Executive and GameTech.  This release and waiver specifically includes, but is not limited to, any claim or cause of action arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C.A. §§ 2000  et seq., as amended; the Americans With Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 12101  et seq.; 42 U.S.C. §§ 1981; the Civil Rights Act of 1991, as amended; the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967, as amended, 29 U.S.C. §§ 621  et seq. ; the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act of 1990; the Employment Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, 29 U.S.C. §§ 1001  et seq.; the Family and Medical Leave Act; the Fair Labor Standards Act; or any other federal, state or local statute or common law cause of action of similar effect regarding employment related causes of action of employees against their employer, or for breach of contract, promissory estoppel or any other legal theory.  Notwithstanding anything to contrary herein, nothing contained in this Agreement shall apply to, or release the Company from (a) any obligation of the Company contained in this Agreement, (b) any vested or accrued benefit under any plan or program of the Company in which Executive participates, (c) any obligation which the Company may have to indemnify Executive pursuant to state law or its corporate by-laws, or (d) any obligation which the Company may have to provide coverage to Executive pursuant to its director and officer insurance policy with respect to actions or omissions of Executive during his service as an officer of the Company.
Acknowledgments of Executive. In granting the forgoing release and waiver of all claims, Executive further acknowledges and agrees that: (i) he is not waiving claims that may arise after this Agreement has become enforceable; (ii) he is receiving benefits under this Agreement to which he would not otherwise be entitled; (iii) the payments and other considerations to be received pursuant to this Agreement, as specifically set forth above at Section 2, are more than Executive would otherwise be entitled, and constitutes valid consideration for this Agreement; (iv) Executive has been advised to review this Agreement with an attorney concerning its effect prior to executing it; (v) the release set forth in the preceding Subsection 4(a) shall be and remain in effect in all respects as a complete general release as to the matters released; (vi) he will not assert any claims described in or otherwise released by the preceding Subsection 4(a) against the Released Parties; and (vii) the release set forth in the preceding Subsection 4(a) does not extend to any of the Company’s obligations incurred under this Agreement and does not release claims that cannot be released as a matter of law, including, but not limited to, Executive's right to file a charge with or participate in a charge by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or any other local, state, or federal administrative body or government agency that is authorized to enforce or administer laws related to employment, against the Company (with the understanding that any such filing or participation does not give Executive the right to recover any monetary damages against the Company; Executive's release of claims herein bars Executive from recovering such monetary relief from the Company).

Release of all Claims in Conjunction with Conclusion of Employment. To achieve the parties’ intent that GameTech receive a release of all claims through Executive’s final date of employment with GameTech, Executive agrees to execute and deliver to GameTech, on his Departure Date, the supplemental general release of all claims in the form attached hereto as Exhibit A. Executive understands that GameTech’s obligation to furnish the compensation called for under this Agreement, is contingent upon GameTech’s receipt of this supplemental general release and the expiration of the revocation period referenced therein without any exercise of the revocation rights described in that release agreement.
