McDonald’s Monopoly returns – what we know about the prizes and how to win

saved! saved!
Twisted: Unserious food tastes seriously good.

Buckle up, Maccies addicts, the time has come…

Not only are Spicy McNuggets back in stores as of 7th September, with a new improved recipe, but McDonald’s Monopoly has officially returned, too.

The promotional game is much loved amongst McDonald’s fans, as it offers them the chance to win free food simply by buying their favourite meals as normal.

On top of that, the game famously offers up a series of prizes – and this year they’re promised to be better than ever, with more chances of winning.

Here’s everything we know about this year’s McDonald’s Monopoly…

What is McDonald’s Monopoly and how do you play?

In case you aren’t familiar with McDonald’s Monopoly, it started back in 2005, and works a lot like the actual game.

Customers are invited to collect custom game pieces which can be peeled off on menu items like chips, wraps, McFlurry’s and drinks.

These game pieces give people the chance to bag an instant win, which usually means free food. Plus, they can collect rare pieces of the same colour (designed like streets you’d see on an actual board) to bag a bigger prize – think tech, holidays and big wads of cash.

As is the case when you play Monopoly, the streets near the front of the Monopoly board (pink, pale blue, brown) tend to be worth the least, whilst the likes of Mayfair and Park Lane are likely to bring home big cash – four winners bagged £100,000 last year.

Not only can you play IRL, but customers can also collect the same coloured property pieces via the McDonald’s App and online. This new ‘double peel’ function means everyone essentially gets two chances to win.

Oh Maccies, you spoil us.

How do you redeem McDonald’s Monopoly prizes?

You can cash in Instant Win Maccies prizes by handing the token over the counter in the restaurant branch you’re in.

Plus, you can also input 12 digit prize codes or digital QR codes into the digital screens in store or on the app to claim any edible winnings.

If you’ve won one of the rarer prizes, you’ll find a website address on the winning token, and you’ll need to head there to redeem it.

After entering personal details like your email and address, you’ll then be able to pick how you wish to receive your winnings.

Playing McDonald’s Monopoly is easier than ever, as customers will be able to add all of their collectable game pieces to a digital game board via the McDonald’s App and online.

This means customers can see what they’ve accumulated in real time.

Pondering a Big Mac for lunch? Well, your Monopoly board could do with one more piece on Liverpool Street, so looks like you’ve just earned yourself an excuse for a slap up lunch…

When does McDonald’s Monopoly end?

McDonald’s Monopoly is running for six weeks, from September 7th, until October 18th.

So, you have plenty of time to stock up on game pieces and win yourself some prizes…
