This page contains Super Mario Bros. 2 Hints for NES called "Extra lives" and has been posted or updated on Sep 3, 2006 by halfdead2o. Let us know what you think of this Hint by thumbs voting.
Each time the spinners start in the bonus round, the second symbol in the first slot is always a cherry. Do it correctly, and you can guarantee yourself an average at least one extra life per coin.
When you reach the jackpot-like game after completing a stage, you can use the coins that have been collected to gain extra lives. Rapidly press the buttons and depending on your technique, you can get an extra life once out of every three tries.
