• This was the first Widebody game from Stern, although the playfield design was much narrower than the standard Widebody pinballs of the period. The typical playfield of such a game was almost 29" wide. Big Game was only 24".
• It was also the first electronic game to use 7-digit score displays. To advertise this, all four score displays simultaneously animate the numbers "1234567" during Game Over mode, followed by flashing "7777777" for three seconds.
