McDonald’s is poised to bring the back Monopoly game to its stores across the UK and it promises to give customers the opportunity to win amazing prizes.
Initially launched in 2005, the Monopoly giveaway-style game was paused by the fast-food giant during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the prize pool for this game will be even better, as players can vie for holidays and cars among other things.
No date has been set for the return of the Monopoly game, however, it is expected to start in September or October. An official statement should be forthcoming on when that will be.
The way that McDonald’s is reprising Monopoly is something that should be marvelled at. In many ways, Monopoly is an institution that has transcended popular culture in much the same way that McDonald’s has pervaded its influence throughout the UK. It is a mark of Monopoly’s longevity that McDonald’s has chosen to stick by this title which continues to hold board game enthusiasts in thrall.
But Monopoly isn’t just reserved for families who like to while away a few hours playing board games. The game has been modernised with the MONOPOLY® PLUS video game that brings the board to life by taking players into a 3D city for younger audiences and it has even been adapted into one of the most popular Megaways slots.
In the meantime, McDonald’s has fully embraced Monopoly. It has put its own unique twist on it even though it mirrors many of the same elements as the iconic board game. Players can compete for prizes through the McDonald’s app and they can collect game pieces every time they buy qualifying products.
Among the food items that will be involved, include chicken selects, the Chicken Legend, Big Flavour wrap, and the Big Tasty. The return of the game comes against the backdrop of economic unease in the UK. With the cost of living soaring, McDonald’s has been unable to offset this, and they have pushed up the price of their cheeseburgers.
Customers can participate in the Monopoly game by using the in-store touch screens, and some food items will be more valuable than others when it comes to accumulating stickers. Some products will have three stickers attached, while others will be assigned a value of one or two stickers. You will also be able to cash in game pieces by entering a 12-digit code.
The Monopoly giveaway that McDonald’s has been involved with in the past has been a success, so you shouldn’t pass up the opportunity to participate this time.
