Mata Hari

Mata Hari

MATA HARI (Solid State) was released in April 1978, and with a production run of 16.260 units, it is the ninth most produced Pinball machine in history.

It was also released as an EM-version, with 170 units manufactured.

The theme is loosely based upon the sensationalized legend of Mata Hari, aka Margaretha Zelle (1876-1917) who was a popular exotic dancer throughout the early 20th century. She was accused and convicted in France of “Consorting with the Enemy” during World War I, which led to her being executed by firing squad.
