Before cursing the heavens, realize that the Capcom-developed New Super Mario Bros. Wii
arcade machine isn't what you think it is. The Mario Bros.
cabinet is actually a "medal game" -- in other words, it's a series of Mario-related mini-games (slot machines and the like) that can earn players more medals (i.e. tokens). According to Siliconera
, players that reach Bowser in the up-to-four-player game have a shot at winning a jackpot.
