Big Day

Big Day

BIG DAY was developed in May 1964 and serial-production started in September.

It was the first 4-Player with an automatic Ball-Lift, and the first machine available also with german lettering. There are 2 different versions of the german Backglasses - the first one shows rather incorrectly "SPIELKUGEL" and the second one "KUGEL IM SPIEL" as the german translation for "BALL IN PLAY"

The above intro text acts a bit like a 'wiki' and can be edited by all Pinside members, including you!
