PULASKI, WI -- Bay Tek Games is celebrating the fourth year of production of its celebrated Big Bass Wheel redemption game.

The company has manufactured more than 3,600 units -- comprising the original Big Bass Wheel and Big Bass Wheel Pro line extension -- since the title's debut in 2008.

Players step up and pull the handle to spin the big wheel. When the wheel stops, they are rewarded with tickets. For an even bigger catch, a Big Bass Bonus feature gives players the chance to win up to 1,000 tickets for a perfect spin.

Separately, Bay Tek has reported that Dave & Buster's is deploying its new Hasbro-licensed Connect 4 redemption game in all its locations. 

The larger-than-life 10-foot-tall version of the classic tabletop board game invites players to take turns pressing the arrows to drop checkers into the grid. When a player connects four in a row, they have a chance to play the bonus and win more tickets.
