McDonalds Monopoly 2010 has begun across the nation. Starting today, McDonalds Monopoly 2010 can be played until November 1, as a lucky player can win big over breakfast and lunch. For almost 25 years, the fast food chain has partnered with Hasbro, to bring one of the nation’s most popular board games to life. Although its players win big pretend prizes, for one month, the prizes are real, although the ‘Go Directly To Jail’ cards are thankfully still fake. But in McDonalds Monopoly 2010, prizes like a million dollars, vacations and new cars are very much real.
When customers buy items like the Big Mac, Filet-O-Fish, McNuggets, Hash Browns, French Fries and more, it will come with Monopoly game pieces until November 1. The game stamp could reveal a big instant win prize, or allow the holder to form a winning combination with other stamps.
The main prize in McDonalds Monopoly 2010 is a million dollars, although there are only two collect and win stamps with that label. Four are worth $50,000, with eight worth $25,000. However, 122 stamps contain a four day, three night Beaches Resorts vacation.
Two instant win stamps are for a 2011 Ford Shelby, with four each for a $25,000 and $10,000 prize. 10 stamps are worth an entire EA Sports Ultimate Game Room. However, the vast majority of pieces are for smaller cash prizes, free food, Walmart gift cards and DVD rentals.
Yet the restaurant isn’t the only place to play and win McDonalds Monopoly 2010. Each game piece has an online code, and by entering it and signing into the game’s website, they can compete for online instant wins. One code is worth a 2011 Ford Sport, while 10 can win an EA Sports “You’re In The Game Experience” and 28 are worth a Beaches Resort vacation.
In addition, a $5,000 Walmart shopping spree, $1,000, Shell gift cards, and MyCoke Rewards Points are also available on the online game. Users can also go on Facebook and Twitter to check each other’s progress, and learn if the big prizes are still on the table.
The promotions say that McDonalds Monopoly 2010 is easier to win than ever, as the odds are presumably lower. Yet although it may be easier to win the smaller prizes, getting the major ones may still be very difficult. Players have four weeks to give it a shot, but only a select few, if any, can get the most desirable items.
In that effect, this game is just like the lottery, only in board game form. However, millions will still hope to be the next Mr. Moneybags, as they try their luck online and in 14,000 participating McDonalds Monopoly locations.
