Slot Machine is a 1-Player minigame found in Mario Party.

Gameplay[edit]

The player has to match three images by hitting a ! Block. If all the images are different, the player will not receive any Coins and will lose the minigame. Additionally, if five minutes pass, the player will also lose the minigame. Unlike in other 1-Player minigames, when this minigame is lost, the player will not lose the usual five Coins.

The numbers of Coins associated with lining up each picture are as follows:

Symbol Coins gained
Hat 20
Treasure Chest 10
Fire Flower 8
Mushroom 6
Coin Bag 5
Koopa Shell 3
Coin 1

Controls[edit]

  • Control Stick – Move
  • A ButtonJump

In-game text[edit]

Trivia[edit]

  • This is the only minigame in the Mario Party series not to begin with a "Start!" or equivalent voice clip.
    • This is also the only minigame to feature a unique victory jingle—specifically, if the player matches any three symbols, with the exception of Mario's cap, which instead uses the "new record/perfect" jingle.
  • Unlike in other minigames, when the player starts this one from the explanation screen or at the Mini-Game House, the screen immediately cuts to black and then the start of the minigame fades in, rather than fading through white.
