of an Event of Default, Bank may, at its election, without notice of its
election and without demand, do any one or more of the following, all of which
are authorized by Borrower:
9.1.1 Declare all Obligations, whether evidenced by this Agreement,
by any of the other Loan Documents, or otherwise, immediately due and payable
(provided that upon the occurrence of an Event of Default described in Section
8.5 all Obligations shall become immediately due and payable without any
action by Bank) ;
9.1.2 Cease advancing money or extending credit to or for the benefit
of Borrower under this Agreement or under any other agreement between Borrower
9.1.3 Settle or adjust disputes and claims directly with account
debtors for amounts, upon terms and in whatever order that Bank reasonably
9.1.4 Without notice to or demand upon Borrower, make such payments
and do such acts as Bank considers necessary or reasonable to protect its
security interest in the Collateral. Borrower agrees to assemble the
Collateral if Bank so requires, and to make the Collateral available to Bank
as Bank may designate. Borrower authorizes Bank to enter the premises where
the Collateral is located, to take and maintain possession of the Collateral,
or any part of it, and to pay, purchase, contest, or compromise any
encumbrance, charge, or lien which in Bank's determination appears to be prior
or superior to its security interest and to pay all expenses incurred in
connection therewith. With respect to any of Borrower's premises,
Borrower hereby grants Bank a license to enter such premises and to occupy the
same, without charge in order to exercise any of Bank's rights or remedies
provided herein, at law, in equity, or otherwise;
9.1.5 Without notice to Borrower set off and apply to the Obligations
any and all (i) balances and deposits of Borrower held by Bank, or (ii)
indebtedness at any time owing to or for the credit or the account of Borrower
held by Bank;
9.1.6 Ship, reclaim, recover, store, finish, maintain, repair,
prepare for sale, advertise for sale, and sell (in the manner provided for
herein) the Collateral. Bank is hereby granted a non-exclusive, royalty-free
license or other right, solely pursuant to the provisions of this Section 9.1,
to use, without charge, Borrower's labels, patents, copyrights, mask works,
rights of use of any name, trade secrets, trade names, trademarks, service
marks, and advertising matter, or any property of a similar nature, as it
pertains to the Collateral, in completing production of, advertising for sale,
and selling any Collateral or otherwise to the extent reasonably necessary to
permit Bank to exercise its rights and remedies, and, in connection with
Bank's exercise of its rights under this Section 9.1, Borrower's rights under
all licenses and all franchise agreements shall inure to Bank's benefit;
9.1.7 Sell the Collateral at either a public or private sale, or
both, by way of one or more contracts or transactions, for cash or on terms,
in such manner and at such places (including Borrower's premises) as Bank
determines is commercially reasonable, and apply the proceeds thereof to the
Obligations in whatever manner or order it deems appropriate;
9.1.8 Bank may credit bid and purchase at any public sale, or at any
private sale as permitted by law; and
9.1.9 Any deficiency that exists after disposition of the Collateral
as provided above will be paid immediately by Borrower.
9.2 Power of Attorney. Effective only upon the occurrence and during the
continuance of an Event of Default, Borrower hereby irrevocably appoints Bank
(and any of Bank's designated officers, or employees) as Borrower's true and
lawful attorney to: (a) send requests for verification of Accounts or notify
account debtors of Bank's security interest in the Accounts; (b) endorse
Borrower's name on any checks or other forms of payment or security that may
come into Bank's possession; (c) sign Borrower's name on any invoice or bill
of lading relating to any Account, drafts against account debtors, schedules
and assignments of Accounts, verifications of Accounts, and notices to account
debtors; (d) make, settle, and adjust all claims under and decisions with
respect to Borrower's policies of insurance; and (e) settle and adjust
disputes and claims respecting the accounts directly with account debtors, for
amounts and upon terms which Bank determines to be reasonable; (f) to modify,
in its sole discretion, any intellectual property security agreement entered
into between Borrower and Bank without first obtaining Borrower's approval of
or signature to such modification to be limited to amending Exhibit A, Exhibit
B, Exhibit C, and Exhibit D, thereof, as appropriate, to include reference to
any right, title or interest in any Copyrights, Patents, Trademarks, Mask
Works acquired by Borrower after the execution hereof or to delete any
reference to any right, title or interest in any Copyrights, Patents,
Trademarks, or Mask Works in which Borrower no longer has or claims any right,
title or interest; (g) to file, in its sole discretion, one or more financing
or continuation statements and amendments thereto, relative to any of the
Collateral without the signature of Borrower where permitted by law; and (h)
to transfer the Intellectual Property Collateral into the
name of Bank or a third party to the extent permitted under the California
Uniform Commercial Code provided Bank may exercise such power of attorney to
sign the name of Borrower on any financing statement regardless of whether an
Event of Default has occurred. The appointment of Bank as Borrower's attorney
in fact, and each and every one of Bank's rights and powers, being coupled
with an interest, is irrevocable until all of the Obligations have been fully
repaid and performed and Bank's obligation to provide advances hereunder is
9.3 Accounts Collection. Upon the occurrence and during the continuance of
an Event of Default, Bank may notify any Person owing funds to Borrower of
Bank's security interest in such funds and verify the amount of such Account.
Borrower shall collect all amounts owing to Borrower for Bank, receive in
trust all payments as Bank's trustee, and if requested or required by Bank,
immediately deliver such payments to Bank in their original form as received
from the account debtor, with proper endorsements for deposit.
9.4 Bank Expenses. If Borrower fails to pay any amounts or furnish any
required proof of payment due to third persons or entities, as required under
the terms of this Agreement, then Bank may, upon notice to Borrower, do any or
all of the following: (a) make payment of the same or any part thereof; (b)
set up such reserves under the Committed Line as Bank deems necessary to
protect Bank from the exposure created by such failure; or (c) obtain and
maintain insurance policies of the type discussed in Section 6.6 of this
Agreement, and take any action with respect to such policies as Bank deems
prudent. Any amounts so paid or deposited by Bank shall constitute Bank
Expenses, shall be immediately due and payable, and shall bear interest at the
then applicable rate hereinabove provided, and shall be secured by the
Collateral. Any payments made by Bank shall not constitute an agreement by
Bank to make similar payments in the future or a waiver by Bank of any Event
of Default under this Agreement.
9.5 Bank's Liability for Collateral. So long as Bank complies with
reasonable banking practices, Bank shall not in any way or manner be liable or
responsible for: (a) the safekeeping of the Collateral; (b) any loss or damage
thereto occurring or arising in any manner or fashion from any cause; (c) any
diminution in the value thereof; or (d) any act or default of any carrier,
warehouseman, bailee, forwarding agency, or other person whomsoever. All risk
of loss, damage or destruction of the Collateral shall be borne by Borrower.
9.6 Remedies Cumulative. Bank's rights and remedies under this Agreement,
the Loan Documents, and all other agreements shall be cumulative. Bank shall
have all other rights and remedies not expressly set forth herein as provided
under the Code, by law, or in equity. No exercise by Bank of one right or
remedy shall be deemed an election, and no waiver by Bank of any Event of
Default on Borrower's part shall be deemed a continuing waiver. No delay by
Bank shall constitute a waiver, election, or acquiescence by it. No waiver by
Bank shall be effective unless made in a written document signed on behalf of
Bank and then shall be effective only in the specific instance and for the
specific purpose for which it was given.
9.7 Demand; Protest. Borrower waives demand, protest, notice of protest,
notice of default or dishonor, notice of payment and nonpayment, notice of any
default, nonpayment at maturity, release, compromise, settlement, extension,
or renewal of accounts, documents, instruments, chattel paper, and guarantees
at any time held by Bank on which Borrower may in any way be liable.

connection herewith shall be in writing and (except for financial statements
and other informational documents which may be sent by first-class mail,

BORROWER: SILICON GAMING, INC.
AGREEMENT TO PROVIDE INSURANCE
Grantor: Silicon Gaming, Inc. Bank: Silicon Valley Bank
INSURANCE REQUIREMENTS. __________________________________________
("Grantor") understands that insurance coverage is required in connection with
the extending of a loan or the providing of other financial accommodations to
Grantor by Bank. These requirements are set forth in the Loan Documents. The
following minimum insurance coverages must be provided on the following
described collateral (the "Collateral"):
Collateral: All Inventory, Equipment and Fixtures.
Type: All risks, including fire, theft and liability.
Amount: Full insurable value.
Basis: Replacement value.
Endorsements: Loss payable clause to Bank with stipulation that
coverage will not be cancelled or diminished without a minimum of 10 days prior
written notice to Bank.
INSURANCE COMPANY. Grantor may obtain insurance from any insurance company
Grantor may choose that is reasonably acceptable to Bank. Grantor understands
that credit may not be denied solely because insurance was not purchased through
FAILURE TO PROVIDE INSURANCE. Grantor agrees to deliver to Bank, on or
before closing, evidence of the required insurance as provided above, with an
effective date of ____________________________, 19___, or earlier. Grantor
acknowledges and agrees that if Grantor fails to provide any required insurance
or fails to continue such insurance in force, Bank may do so at Grantor's
expense as provided in the Loan and Security Agreement. The cost of such
insurance, at the option of Bank, shall be payable on demand or shall be added
to the indebtedness as provided in the security document. GRANTOR ACKNOWLEDGES
THAT IF BANK SO PURCHASES ANY SUCH INSURANCE, THE INSURANCE WILL PROVIDE LIMITED
PROTECTION AGAINST PHYSICAL DAMAGE TO THE COLLATERAL, UP TO THE BALANCE OF THE
LOAN; HOWEVER, GRANTOR'S EQUITY IN THE COLLATERAL MAY NOT BE INSURED. IN
ADDITION, THE INSURANCE MAY NOT PROVIDE ANY PUBLIC LIABILITY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE
INDEMNIFICATION AND MAY NOT MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF ANY FINANCIAL
AUTHORIZATION. For purposes of insurance coverage on the Collateral,
Grantor authorizes Bank to provide to any person (including any insurance agent
or company) all information Bank deems appropriate, whether regarding the
Collateral, the loan or other financial accommodations, or both.
