Sorry about not having every currency listed, since I'm not a student of high finance. Most probably the amounts I did list aren't accurate, other than the US coins. Wolf, I'm sure if I had included "someone spotted me a game" as a choice you would have come up with something else to fuss about. :)
My first game was in 1982. Haunted House by Gottlieb. An all time classic, the music, the triple playfield, the eight flippers, the upside down basement. I loved it. And all for just 10p, which I guess was about 25 cents.
Now that would be a bit hefty,...the pricing when i discovered pinball (mid/late 70's) was [1DM - 2 Credits] [2DM - 5 Credits] [5DM - 14 Credits] which means 25DM would have been 70 Credits minimum (without a multiplier set like for the other coins) which again was almost twice as much than a Bally machine from that time would have displayed because of the max.credits-restriction of 40 Credits,...
Older games like Magnotron for instance (EM) still had a 50Pfennig slot even (50pf=half a DM) which gave 2 Plays for that, so either 50pf or 1DM per play was definitely a lot more appropriate than 25DM,...
And as for the question: I fear i dont remember that anymore, but i think my very first pinball game was when someone of my family was letting me play a few balls,...

For that reason I voted 25 cents. In the mid 70s it was the worth of about DM 0,50 (or 50 Pfennig). Pricing was just raised to DM 0,50 for one 5-ball-game. But there were still some tables around were you got 2 games for 50 Pf and even a few older for 20 Pf a game.
