McDonald’s has now confirmed that the game will return on Wednesday, September 7.

The move comes just weeks after the fast-food chain announced it would expand its new loyalty program nationwide.

The firm said pricing details will be revealed shortly.

The popular game usually takes place in March, but McDonald’s said it wants to give customers the chance to win through its app, as well as online, as part of MyMcDonald’s Rewards.

McDonald’s also revealed that customers will now be able to double their gameplay with the new “double peel” offer.

Customers will be able to peel a package and then peel in the McDonald’s app, which includes a digital game board and prize wallet.

Some menu items will have stickers depicting Monopoly game pieces.

For each one you get, you can scan it on the MyMcDonald’s app, giving you a second chance to win.

The chain also revealed it will raise menu prices, including fan favorite 99p cheeseburger, as the cost of living crisis begins to take its toll.

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

The announcement comes the same day Maccies is launching major menu changes, including the introduction of halloumi fries.

How does McDonald’s Monopoly work?

McDonald’s launched the contest in 2005 and it operates similarly to the classic board game Monopoly.

Customers collect game pieces when they purchase eligible McDonald’s products, such as color-coordinated road names or train stations.

You can find them in the form of stickers that will appear on the packaging of your food.

Each piece represents a tile on the board that you can collect for free from restaurants or play online.

You will find these as stickers that will appear on your food packaging throughout the game.

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

Instant food prizes can be redeemed at any McDonald’s branch by presenting the token at the counter when ordering.

You can also cash in game coins at the in-store touch terminals or via the app by entering the 12-digit prize code.

You will need to hand over the game pieces to a member of staff when you pick up your meal.

How long will it last?

The McDonald’s Monopoly usually lasts about six weeks.

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

Do all McDonald’s food products have stickers?

If you decide to have a meal, which adds a drink and side to your burger or wrap, you’ll collect more chunks.

Customers who choose fries as a side dish will receive two additional stickers.

If you choose a side salad, a bag of vegetables or a bag of fruit instead, you will get three more stickers.

A drink will earn you three more stickers.

The following will get you three stickers:

  • Big tasty –
  • Bacon Big Tasty
  • Choice of chicken (three or five)
  • Smokehouse BBQ Chicken
  • legend of the chicken
  • Body wrap with great flavors
  • Soft drink
  • Caramel Iced Frappé
  • Frozen Strawberry Lemonade
  • Chicken and bacon salad
  • Chicken salad

Two stickers

  • Fries – medium or large
  • Mozzarella balls
  • Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate McFlurry
  • Cadbury Caramel McFlurry

What prizes are up for grabs at McDonald’s Monopoly?

McDonald’s has yet to reveal this year’s prices – but said they will be bigger than ever.

Last year, prizes ranged from free food that could be earned instantly when you peeled off a prize sticker, to a vacation if you collected all the right coins.

Instant prizes included an Ibiza getaway, a 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 increase my chances of winning?

To win prizes in McDonald’s Monopoly, you need to check in-game coins on menu items.

But not all menu items are created equal when it comes to collecting those prize coins.

Some foods and drinks may have up to three game pieces and some may have none.

The maximum number of coins you can get at a time is nine.

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