Promotional poster for Williams’ Gorgar pinball, 1977.

Gorgar was the first pinball machine to feature speech sound effects, giving the titular demon a vocabulary of about seven words.  Unfortunately, an unfixable bug in the machine’s ROM code meant that if players inserted coins while the machine was speaking, credit would not be given. 

As a fix, Williams sent operators a decal to be added near the coin slots reminding players to wait until Gorgar shut up to give him their money.
