Looks like a generic gaming token, 8.8 gram, 27.7 mm, irregularly reeded edge (possibly scratches from the machines it was used in). Slightly larger than a 2 euro coin. The central hole is slightly unusual.

SPIELPALAST (gaming palace) is almost the opposite of SPIELSTUBEN (gaming joints, the word Stube suggest small and cosy). The latter may be a trading name, as it occurs in several towns, all in Germany.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Austrian gaming token. 28 mm, 3 gram, reeded edge. Somewhat larger than a 2 euro piece, but with colours inversed. The "denomination" is unusual, as it is probably unnecessary.

At first sight, this token seems British. Some words in German give it away. Games World Familien und Freizeit Center (family and leisure centre) is owned by Freizeit Veranstaltungsgesellschaft E. Riedl (which explains the R)  from Wiener Neudorf, a suburb of Vienna.

Nicht rückzalbar = not refundable
