What is McDonald’s Monopoly and how can I play?

Players can take part in McDonald’s Monopoly by collecting game pieces found on the packaging of qualifying McDonald’s menu items - these game pieces share the same road names you’d find on a Monopoly board, like Mayfair and Fleet Street.

Each game piece represents a tile on the Monopoly board, which you can get for free from a McDonald’s restaurant, or you can play along online instead.

By collecting a specific set of tiles, you can be in with a chance of winning some big prizes - although the pieces that will win you the biggest prizes will be harder to come by, as there are fewer of these pieces in rotation.

Additionally, there are also instant win stickers that can be redeemed immediately by players. These are usually food items from McDonald’s.

If you want to take part, you’ll need to be over the age of 16.

What prizes are up for grabs?

When does McDonald’s Monopoly return to Sheffield?

Good news – McDonald’s Monopoly launched in Sheffield yesterday – Wednesday, August 25.

Originally McDonald’s Monopoly was going to begin earlier this year, on 24 March, but instead it was pushed back due to the ongoing Covid-19 restrictions and closures affecting its branches.

However, McDonald’s has already printed and dated over 200 million Monopoly game pieces when the decision was made to postpone the game.

McDonald’s said: “McDonald’s has repurposed the packaging with these outdated game pieces to ensure the Monopoly promotion at McDonald’s could return for customers as soon as it was safe to do so in August.

“The game pieces will include incorrect expiry dates, so McDonald’s are urging customers to check the dates.”

Customers in Sheffield will be able to play the game until Tuesday, October 5, 2021 – and the same date will apply online.

“Collect to win” and “instant win” prizes must be cashed by November 11 2021, and McDonalds food prizes and Just Eat vouchers must be redeemed by October 19, 2021.

Other vouchers will need to be used by January 31, 2022.
