Mario Kart Tour Item Tickets

Item Tickets serve much the same function as hitting one of the Mystery Boxes that are littered around each and every track. These boxes are marked with a question mark motif and, when collided with, randomly grant players one power-up from a pool of 25. Item Tickets do exactly the same, but can be used just once per race in order to either reroll a bad item or to grant the player a new item. An Item Ticket can help to turn the tide in a tough race.
