What are the star coins for?

  1. Can someone please tell me what those star coins are for? You know the ones that pop up on the track and when you hit someone.

  1. Those "Star Coin" are just part for Casino Machine that allow you to start the race with the result (most usually protection from single item that less the spin-out or give you extra item at start of the race, like Neo-Blue Gloves, Boost, etc.) at cost of 5 coins for each pulling (have to repeat until you get the item, if you had not enough, then you're stuck without them). They will repeat bring up in Grand Prix race before you started the race (in the case, Load Screen) and are usually in some branches when unlocked in the process of World Tour. However, the maximum you can hold is 99 coins.

  1. For unlocking gates in campaign mode, which is how you progress and unlock characters.

    Wait, sorry, thats stars. Star COINS are for using in the slot machine. Which comes up before most races, and you can win some bonus, like starting with certain items, or boosts lasting longer for the next event, etc.

  2. The star coins are also for getting all star power during races, I do not know the number of coins required but after picking up a few you'll get the all star.
