It’s McDonald’s Monopoly season, but you have a better chance at winning the lottery than most of these prizes.
Sure, it’s fun to peel the game pieces off your Big Mac box and collect them on the little fold up Monopoly board, but what are your actual chances of winning?
They may seem high when you collect all but one piece from a certain part of the board, but that’s how they get you.
The odds of collecting any McDonald’s Monopoly piece is 1-in-11, except for one piece from every section.
So when you’re “just one piece away,” the reality is that thousands of others are probably looking for that same piece.
On the other hand, if you manage to somehow find one of the rare pieces, collecting the rest of that section’s pieces to win a big prize will be quite easy.
With that being said, all you have to know if you actually want to play McDonald’s Monopoly is what 10 rare pieces you need to look out for and make sure you don’t throw out if you find them.
Below is a list of all the pieces, what prizes they win and which ones are rare (in bold):
*This year, McDonald's has not provided the exact odds of collecting the individual pieces, so we've included those odds from last year and the overall odds from this year.*
