I bought a Sega master system model 1 a few moments ago when I turn it on it automatically boots up to a game without anything in the cartridge slot is that normal for those systems to have a built in game?

If I remember correctly, the answer is yes. That model had a game installed on the hardware (I want to say it was something like Hang on or something), but it's one of the few systems, particularly of that generation, to come with an on-board pack-in. For some reason, I thought you had to hold down buttons at boot to launch it, but maybe it just works if there's no cartridge in the slot ... I've never owned a Master System to test though

Yes, I believe the snail maze game is the built in game for the model 1, model 2 had some variations as to what game was built, I remember Alex Kidd In Miracle World and Sonic were built in.

I've never actually seen one with Snail Maze, every one I've owned or seen has been the Hang-On/Safari Hunt version.

I wasnt even aware of the hang-on. My friend who was the only kid on the block with a master system had a snail maze game as a kid on his.

No, it's broken. It doesn't have anything special if you don't have a cart in it. There's definitely something wrong with your system.
