Not talking the instant wins where you get a free chicken biscuit or whatever
You mean other than "insta-win"? No
I one mane times
I won a medium fry yesterday and now I can't find the piece
I one wonse
I always get Park Place or Boardwalk really early into the contest, but never end up winning :(
i won diabetes
there's like 2 boardwalks in the whole set of game pieces every year, so if that's true you're probably a millionaire
Maybe it's Park Place I forget.
I just always get a blue one every year. One year I had two of the same blue pieces
because there's like millions of the pieces and you stay on a wild goose chase for the others. you'll get like 2/3 or 1/2 but never get the other, so you stay playing. the odds of getting a boardwalk or a piece to complete your set are really small

Girl I went to high school with won a trip to Hawaii 5-6 years ago
now i gotta go get mcdonalds and shit
this is entrapment
I don't want to be friends with anyone that eats at McDonalds enough to win monopoly.
I think last time we had this thread a guy posted that his buddy who worked at McDonalds stole several cases of cups and brought them home, but after peeling all the pieces was able to make no matches due to the odds being:
You have a much better chance of winning the lottery and not becoming fat.
From what I've heard they place different pieces in different parts of the country also.
Thia sounds like the type of guy that would somehow win and not realize as an employee he wouldn't be eligible to win. This would lead them to become :skepticalhippo: and find out he stole the cups, lose his job and be prosecuted.
My brother won 40 MyCokeRewards points yesterday. Pretty exhilarating.
I won an iced coffee once. I fucking hate McDonald's though
here's that post:
Guy I worked with last year won $50 instantly
I remember seeing something on facebook about a kid I knew in high school winning 5k or 10k...can't remember which. Never confirmed that, and can't remember who it was
Well he did work at McDonalds....
I thought about saying that, but I have more respect for those in college/high-school/just needing a job that work at McDonald's instead of doing nothing.
that's pretty much the point of it
I'm watching this show about the FBI catching child predators. Every one of them has a McDonalds monopoly board. Just saying.

Not really how it works.
For the ones you need 3 pieces to match for instance, they have a fucking shitload of two of the pieces, then like 80 of the third one. They hope you get those first two, then buy Mcdonalds a fuckton trying to get the third. Its actually one of the most successful promotions that any company runs.
the mom of one of my buddies in high school swore she had boardwalk, then lost it. she spent a solid week (at least) tearing her house apart and crawling around her yard on her hands & knees looking for it. she also had a drinking problem
In 1995, St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee received an anonymous letter postmarked Dallas, Texas, containing a $1 million winning game piece. Although game rules prohibited the transfer of prizes, McDonald's waived the rule and is making the $50,000 annual payments. Investigations later indicated, and he, himself, admitted, that Jacobson had sent the winning piece to the hospital.
NVM, realized it was the guy that scammed the money who gave it away.
not really since he took the most expensive pieces and gave them to associates stealing about $24million
Maybe somebody will have luck winning this competition:
Can we start a class action lawsuit for all those years we played and that guy was cheating.
The Monopoly game is not close to being as awesome as the Disney trivia game they used to have.
I used to eat breakfast for free there every morning.
the thread title sounds like the start of a commercial about just that
I won a Whopper.
Won a free breakfast sandwich
I miss the Disney Trivia contest.
