McDonald's confirms the exact date that popular Monopoly game is returning to restaurants | The Sun

MCDONALD'S has confirmed that Monopoly will return in weeks, with even bigger prizes.

The fast food chain previously confirmed Monopoly will start in either September or October – and customers will have more chances to win.

McDonald's has now confirmed that the game returns on Wednesday September 7.

Details of the prizes will be revealed closer to the launch date.

The popular game usually takes place in March, but McDonald's said it wanted to allow customers the chance to win through its app, as well as online via sticker, as part of MyMcDonald's Rewards.

Earlier this month, McDonald's launched a Rewards programme offering customers one point for every penny spent through its app.

A spokesman for the fast food giant said: "We hope you love our new rewards scheme as much as you love our popular Monopoly promotion, which will return later in the summer with an even bigger prize pool and increased chances of winning."

The chain has also revealed it is to hike menu prices including fan favourite the 99p cheeseburger as the cost of living crisis begins to take its toll.

It will be adding up to 20p to a number of menu items.

The announcement comes on the same day that Maccies launches some major menu changes including the introduction of halloumi fries.

How does McDonald's Monopoly work?

McDonald's launched the competition in 2005 and it works in a similar way to the classic Monopoly board game.

Customers collect game pieces when they buy qualifying McDonald's products, such as colour co-ordinated road names or train stations.

You'll be able to find them as stickers which will appear on the packaging of your food.

Each piece represents a tile on the board which you can pick up for free in the restaurant or play along online.

You will find them as stickers which appear on the packaging of your food throughout the game.

When you collect a set, you get a prize, and there are also "instant wins" which allow you to claim your goodies right away.

When you collect a set, you get a prize, and there are also "instant wins" which allow you to claim your winnings immediately.

Instant win food prizes can be redeemed at any McDonald's branch by handing the token over at the counter when you order.

You can also cash in game pieces on the touch screen kiosks in store or via the app by entering in the 12 digit prize code.

You'll need to hand the game pieces over to a member of staff when you collect your meal.

How long will it run for?

McDonald's Monopoly usually runs for around six weeks.

Last year it launched on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, and ran until Tuesday October 5.

Do all McDonald's food items have stickers?

If you decide to get a meal, which adds a drink and a side to your burger or wrap, you will collect more pieces.

Customers who select fries as their side will get an extra two stickers.

If you choose a side salad, vegetable bag or fruit bag instead, you'll get yourself three more stickers.

A drink will get you a further three stickers.

The following items will get you three stickers:

  • Big Tasty –
  • Big Tasty with bacon
  • Chicken selects (three or five)
  • Chicken BBQ Smokehouse
  • Chicken Legend
  • Big Flavour wrap
  • Soft drink
  • Caramel iced frappe
  • Frozen strawberry lemonade
  • Chicken and bacon salad
  • Chicken salad

Two stickers

  • Fries – medium or large
  • Mozzarella dippers
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate McFlurry
  • Cadbury Caramel McFlurry

What prizes are up for grabs in McDonald's Monopoly?

McDonald's is yet to reveal this year's prizes – but it has said they will be bigger than ever.

Prizes last year ranged from free food which could be won instantly when you peel off a prize sticker, to a holiday if you collected all the right pieces.

Instant prices included an Ibiza getaway, Lay-Z-Spa hot tub and a £100 JD gift card.

Free Big Macs, Chicken McNuggets, Double Cheeseburgers and McFlurries were also among the prizes.

How can I boost my chances of winning?

To win prizes in McDonald's Monopoly you need to check the game pieces on menu items.

But not all menu items are equal when it comes to collecting these prize pieces.

Some food and drink could have up to three game pieces and others may have none at all.

The maximum number of pieces you can get at once is nine.

Swapping your fries for a healthy side could also boost your chances of winning.

Will there be any rare Monopoly pieces this year?
