“Try striking a bonus block AFTER you have found at least 30 coins in an area...”
Message Block in Butter Bridge 1, Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2

A bonus block (initially parsed as Bonus Block)[1][2] is a special green block with a white star on it that appears in certain levels of Super Mario World and its remake. If Mario or Luigi collects at least 30 coins in a level and then hits the block, a 1-Up Mushroom pops out as a reward. If either brother does not have at least 30 coins, he obtains only a single coin. Some levels this block can be found in are Yoshi's Island 3, Butter Bridge 1, Donut Plains 3, and Chocolate Island 3.
