Dean Barnett
Vice President of Sales

Dean brings over 30 years of experience in the Gaming industry to Galaxy Gaming. Following his study at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, Dean began what he believed to be a short tenure in the casino industry while he pursued other career goals. A brief but exciting experience in the NFL with the Denver Broncos ended due to an injury, which meant Dean's return to the casino business where he began his training in table games in earnest. Dean dealt every game available at that time, including Craps, Roulette, Baccarat and Blackjack. Later, he moved into management where he studied under Gaming expert, Bill Zender. Dean was honored to be part of Mr. Zender's elite team specializing in Card Counting, Shuffle Tracking and Advantage Play. As his career grew, he became part of the initial team that launched start-up company, Shuffle Master Gaming, where he led the sales effort as National Sales Manager to help that company grow from its infancy into a publicly traded company. Upon further growth in his career, he helped develop card shufflers, deck checkers and slot drop systems at Casinovations, as the Vice President of Sales. Dean's unique experience and extensive knowledge in table games operations, table games sales and business development brings valuable insight and experience to Galaxy Gaming's operations.
