A designer from EFO (who designed the games for Cidelsa-Playmatic) I contacted a few years ago told me that not all games they designed were finally launched, I asked him back then for titles but he didn't remember. He said they had machines in their office for testing but also they put the games in a bar near them for 'public testing', to see the reaction and acceptance (or not) of a game.

The registers we found were authorizations to a specific game machine could be commercialized and so installed at public places by operators, and it seems were a necessary requirement even if they wanted to test the game at a public location. So if possible games were developed but sadly even in this case, if they were cancelled it very possible the games were lost forever. However I'm continue to try to find any info about these games.
Greetings!
