Mario Party: The Top 100:

Slot Trot is a 2-vs.-2 minigame found in Mario Party 6 and Mario Party: The Top 100. Its name is a pun on, "Foxtrot," a dance from the 1920s. This minigame takes place at an amusement park.


The camera shows the first player's team, which runs forward to move the wheels forward, then back to move them back. The view then changes to the one shown in-game.


Both slots that are displayed by a Lakitu flip randomly to show a pair of objects. The pair of objects shown can be either a Mushroom, a Lakitu's Cloud, a Green Shell, a Fire Flower, a Buzzy Beetle, a Yoshi Egg, a Cheep Cheep, or a red Koopa Paratroopa shell. The teams must then rotate the slots they stand upon so that the result on the machines matches the one on Lakitu's display. The first team to match the display earns a point. It is possible for both teams to score. The first team to earn three points wins. If both teams score three points or if too many rounds pass, regardless of the teams' scores, a tie is declared.

In The Top 100, some icons have been changed: The Green Shell now shows the Koopa Troopa, the Buzzy Beetle's design resembles more of its common New Super Mario Bros. variation with the glowing red eyes, and Boos and Bullet Bills appear instead of the clouds and the Paratroopa shells.


The camera zooms in on the winners, who perform their victory animations. If a tie is declared, the players do their losing animations.
