Notes: This is the add-a-ball version of Segasa's 1975 'Big Ben' made for export to Italy. It has no replay window. The backglass indicates this version is manufactured "By Segasa under licence" (misspelling of 'license') and prominently displays the Williams name above the game name instead of the Segasa name, reportedly to provide more appeal to the Italian market. Although the Instruction Manual for this game shows the replay version on its cover, it is the add-a-ball manual because it, like the schematic, has no mention of the right eject hole found in the replay version but mentions the standup target and higher scores found in the add-a-ball version. Pictured in this listing is a backbox with a replay window apparently added by an operator as it is not located in the backglass location where Segasa placed it for their domestic version.
