"8.1 This Agreement shall expire two (2) years after the Effective Date of this Amendment Five. Upon expiration of the Term, CSI may request extension of the Term for an additional two (2) years upon the same terms of this Agreement by serving written notice to PALA at least ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of the then-existing Term. Such extension will require mutual agreement of the Parties. Upon expiration or any earlier termination of this Agreement, upon CSI's election, PALA shall deliver or cause to be delivered to CSI the Source Code and Additional Codes as described in Section 6 of this Agreement."


3. Compensation/Freemium. Section 2.2 of the Agreement is hereby deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:


"2.2 For "Maintenance" of the Product and "Reporting Support," commencing as of January 1, 2017, CSI shall pay PALA Forty One Thousand, Six Hundred Sixty Six U.S. Dollars and Sixty Seven Cents ($41,666.67 USD) per month ("Monthly Fee"). This Monthly Fee shall include Services in which PALA assists CSI in migrating the freemium business of ClubWPT to CSI's parent company's PlayWPT platform (including, without limitation, PALA assisting with in-game messaging, removing play chips buying functionality, removing play chip top-up processes, modifying virtual goods features, shutting down ClubWPT Facebook product, etc.). Such Monthly Fee shall be payable monthly in advance on the first day of each month within thirty (30) days after receipt of an invoice.








For purposes of this Agreement, "Maintenance" shall mean services necessary to keep the current Product functioning based on the Product's agreed-upon scope of work, including bug fixes, minor modifications and minor enhancements to improve the Product as agreed by the Parties in good faith, but shall not include any new major features as set forth in Section 2.3. For purposes of this Agreement, "Reporting Support" shall mean producing and supporting the production of reports as requested by CSI. This Section 2.2 does not constitute a warranty that the Product will function without additional costs beyond Maintenance. The Parties acknowledge and agree that the warranties under this Agreement are exclusively set forth in Section 7 of this Agreement."


4. Migration. The following is added to the Agreement as new Section 2.4:


"Upon expiration or any earlier termination of this Agreement, if CSI elects for PALA to make the following deliveries and provide the following services relating to migration, the following provisions will apply:

PALA shall assist CSI with migration efforts by providing reasonable transferring services and migration support services in association with the termination ("Termination Migration Services") according to the agreed timetable; provided however, PALA's Termination Migration Services will be limited to 500 man hours, unless otherwise agreed by the parties.
