The game depicts Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, and Yoshi in their karts on a track shaped similarly to SNES Mario Circuit 1. A Lakitu and Cheep Cheep can be seen in the middle of the track, and a Monty Mole pops up from a hole when the race begins. Players bet on which character will win, and the winner receives a payout.[2] Karts can slow down, speed up, skid, and spin out.

An arrangement of Super Mario Kart's title screen music plays while players are placing bets, and a sped-up version of Mario Circuit's theme music plays when the karts are driving.
