And this year there will be a bonus chance to win prizes with th ‘double peel’, meaning customers will be able to peel their stickers from the pack, then get an extra digital peel on the McDonald’s app, which has a virtual game board and prize wallet for extra wins.

What is the Monopoly game at McDonald’s?

McDonald’s much-loved promotion was launched back in 2005 and works in a similar way to the classic Monopoly board game. Customers have the chance to win prizes by collecting game pieces from menu items such as fries, wraps, drinks and McFlurry’s.

By peeling off the game pieces from these selected items, customers can instantly win free food items and bigger prizes or collect property pieces of the same colour for a bigger prize via the McDonald’s app and online.

So how does it work?

  • Peel on pack: Reveal property or instant prize win
  • Collect in McDonald’s app: Scan property code to complete set and win
  • Extra Peel in McDonald’s app: Each property banked in your Monopoly Wallet gives you another chance to win!

Both existing and new customers who are signed up to My McDonald’s Rewards will also receive a free code to play, as well as be able to earn points on their order.Prize information and full rules will be announced by the fast food chain in the coming weeks.
