G.S.P. .....  transit token from the U.S.A.

Bally...  this one from Casino Bled at the Park Hotel in Bled in Slovenia (well that is the first "Casino Bled" in the search results and I cannot see there being another. The "Bally" side of this token can be seen on some other tokens. I have not seen a picture of a Casino Bled token before. Use of token.... for the token slot in a amusement machine....

Freedom / No Cash Value   ---  likely British (maybe U.S.A.)   -  slot token  -   likely for gaming/amusements.

The "Eurocoin London" pieces are British...  Brent Walker Automatics are British....  and I believe "Brent Walker Automatics" tokens will always be gamig/amusement.

Likely most or all pieces shown are from 1980s/1990s.

Thanks Mr Paul Baker

The Bally chain of casinos is worldwide and this token you have shown is seen in various languages although still using the same basic design. It has been mentioned elsewhere here.

Generic token produced by Eurocoin (London). I picked up my copy from an Amsterdam supermarket that used it as a parking token.

In my youth I was a pinball wizard  ;D ;D  during the 1980's I had four full size arcade machines in my garage  8) The Bally pinball machines that were very popular in cafe's the 1960's & 70's were the bagatelle type,there were no bumpers or flippers and these required you to skillfully get the 5 balls in a line, 3 in a line clocked up 12 points, then you had to try & get the fourth ball in place without tilting the machine which was sett extremely sensitive,you could use some of the points to try & raise the odds, 5 in a line clocked up 96 points or more if you managed to raise the odds.
You then could cash in your score for money. However in the UK it was illegal to pay out money & these machines, each one had a sign 'for amusement only' so you had to rely on the cafe owner to bend the rules, if he didn't then nobody would play his machines  :D

In my youth.... just a little earlier, around 1947, after my grandfather had retired he ran a little lockup tea and coffee stall under a railway bridge, [outside London] when staying with them I would be sent to meet him when time for him to close and he used to give me a few pennies to play the bagatelle type of slot machine he had there. I imagine this one was purely mechanical then.

Kärcher is a German company that makes cleaning equipment. The token is likely for using a car wash tunnel or a vacuum cleaner in a garage. The token below is a generic Eurocoin die, coupled with the initials of one of their many clients. The lgo with the small i is used by the University of Washington (UW). Possibly a coffee or parking token.

The first one Cafe Bar engages in the supply and service of hot and cold beverage systems and seems to available in most countries.

The ice cream one is new to me.

GWQ8 - A google result brings up....
GameWorks is the newest and ultimate destination for a "Total Entertainment Experience" in Kuwait, where Guests can EAT ▪ DRINK ▪ PARTY + PLAY.
GameWorks location offers our Guests with multi-themed attraction areas, with over 120 of the newest games
Perhaps there are others...

The Karcher has widespread use in car wash and vacuum equipment often with the reverse showing a location such this one from Gothenburg, Sweden.

Ice Cream 41 seems to be an old and well known (surprise!) Ice Cream parlour in Khartoum (Sudan). The official web site is not ready yet. No idea on how this was used.
