As golden as the arches of this fine establishment, the same can be said for the money making opportunity that awaits you. I’m of course talking about the annual artery clogging game called “McDonald’s Monopoly”. But before you abandon your healthy lifestyle of tofu and hummus for Big Macs and Large Fries I thought it would be nice to provide you with the list of “Rare Pieces” for the game:
I know these codes are from 2007 but as far as I know nothing has changed over the years. Now if you don’t know how the game works…well…you’re a moron. Don’t worry the Mickie D’s employee with Down Syndrome by the shake machine will explain it for you. Don’t get me wrong. I know this game is a sucker’s bet in its truest form. Hell, the game was halted back in 2001 after a company called Simon Marketing, which organized and promoted the game, had been removing all the “rare pieces” from play and distributing them to friends and family. The scam went on for several years and netted the conspirators over $24 million in prizes. The scheme was eventually uncovered when one of the participants informed the FBI. There’s always one, isn’t there?
“McDonald’s Monopoly” is indeed just a marketing scheme and playing it consistently will add inches to your waistline but who doesn’t get a thrill when they peel off Park Place from the side of their large Coke? You’re only one Boardwalk away from life changing money.
