GameStop Giving Away Life-Size Mario Kart, Blue Shells Not Included

by Lambert Varias

Remember the life-sized Mario Kart that Nintendo and West Coast Customs unveiled at the LA Auto Show? Want it? Good news! Here’s your chance to own it, thanks to GameStop. The video game retailer has began taking raffle entries for the one of a kind vehicle. Remi Gaillard must be beside himself right now.

GameStop Mario Kart

There are several ways of entering the raffle. Members of the PowerUp Rewards and PowerUp Rewards Pro clubs can earn up to two entries daily by going to a GameStop branch to either make a purchase or trade-in transaction. Now here’s the slightly weird bit: it’s actually easier to enter the raffle if you’re not a member of either club. All you have to do is fill out this form. No purchase required. No leaving your house required. You have to be at least 18-years old though, and you can only enter once that way.

The contest ends on December 31, and the raffle will be held on January 15, 2012. Remember, this is for a functional (but obviously not street legal) electric Mario Kart kart, valued at $9,130 (USD). Couple that with the free and easy entry requirement, and the only reason why you wouldn’t enter this raffle is if you’re not a resident of the United States (or its territories). The rest of us will have to stick with the game.
