Slot-O-Whirl! is a single-player Bowser minigame in Mario Party 7.


The character arrives on a moving platform. On that platform, a giant mechanical slot machine constructs itself in front of the character.


The player must push A Button for the three individual slots and have them land on the key and not the colored Bowser faces. If a slot wheel lands on a key, the next wheel spins faster. If the player can get the key to appear on all three slots before the 30-second time limit expires, they win.


The ending to Slot-O-Whirl!

The slot machine gets disassembled. If the player wins, they get their hands on the key, use it to escape through a door at the north, and celebrate their victory on their way out. If the player loses, Bowser crushes them, laughs, and raises one of his fists in triumph.


  • A Button – Stop the slot

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Line up 3 key symbols on the slot machine to get a key of your own and win!"
  • Advice"Watch the slot's timing and press A Button when the key flies by. It moves fast, so you may have to guess!"
