Spin-Off Festival 7 was the 7th edition of the Spin-Off Festival, which started May 26, 2017 and ended June 19, 2017. It was announced on May 18, 2017.

- Win events such as Jeopardy, Spin-Off & Literature Trivia, Wheel of Fortune, SpongeCraft, Dunces & Dragons, etc. Don't panic if you can't win them though, because: Whoever reaches the Top 5 spots of any event receives SOF Tickets, not just the first place person.

- Win the Lottery during the event, which gives you 400 SOF Tickets.
- Have them as a currency in your Glove Universe Market store.
- Have your spin-off/lit come in the top 10 for the SpongeBoard lists during the event, which gives you 100 SOF Tickets.
- Participate in the SWYAD, which gives you 30 SOF Tickets.
- You can trade your doubloons to get SOF Tickets using Karen's Doubloon to Ticket Converter 3000.
Just like the past two festivals, for a limited time during the event, the Spin-Off/Lit games forum and user store forum were brought back as two exclusive forums, named "Glove Universe Rides" and "Glove Universe Market" respectively, two sub-forums under the Spin-Off Festival 7 forum. The two forums were removed in the past due to lack of activity, and were brought back only to fit the theme. The mini-games could be found in Glove Universe Rides.

During the event, there were exclusive mini-game topics in the Glove Universe Rides forum, officially made by the staff. These were ways to earn more SOF Tickets. The Daily Spin, Spin-Off Shuffle, and Balloon Pop from Spin-Off Festival 6 returned, but two new ones were also added.
The Daily Spin
Users had to spin a wheel, which contains the slots: Wah wah wah (x3), 25 SOF Tickets, 50 SOF Tickets, 75 SOF Tickets, 100 SOF Tickets, 1 Doubloon, 25 Doubloons, 50 Doubloons, 75 Doubloons, or Extra Spin. If you landed on Wah wah wah, you got nothing, but if you land on the others, you would get those prizes. You could only spin once a day. There were 12 slots on the wheel instead of 9 this year.
Users had to throw darts at spin-off/lit balloons, containing different SOF Ticket values or nothing inside them at all. Your dart can hit or miss depending on the generator's outcome. You could only play once a day.
Users had to pick a hat identified by the name of a spin-off/lit, and it will be shuffled around, having a prize under it, ranging from SOF Tickets, Doubloons to nothing. You could only play once a day.
Users had to toss a ball at a spin-off/lit bottle, and if it successfully hits, they will get either SOF Tickets, Doubloons, or nothing. You could only play once a day.
Whack a Character
