May order a GT500 tomorrow

yes, I am serious.



I have two of the McD's Monopoly pieces at work, and one is ether Park Place or Broadway..


I got a Park Place this weekend, so when I get to work, if that other piece is Broadway.... I'm getting a new pony!

Re: May order a GT500 tomorrow

Also, I believe Boardwalk is the one you are wanting.

the one at the office is also park place.

Boardwalk is the ticket to have. if you had boardwalk youd know it. that aint some ticket you just stick in the desk, thats the piece where you take the rest of the day off, and go hit up a mcdonalds for like 100 medium fries, hold the fries, to get the park place piece (or you could just ask around).

Re: May order a GT500 tomorrow

Doesnt getting all 3 pieces entitle you to only your name in a drawing for one?

I havent played this year but I remember when they were giving away a viper(last year?) that it only got you a chance.

Re: May order a GT500 tomorrow

Here's my assumption.


McD's does not have $1M sitting around to give away. Rather, they pay an insurance premium on the winnings.

The premium is based on the statistical probability that someone will actually win, so the lower the probability, the lower the premium.


I'd bed they issue one Boardwalk piece, and it's probably released either with the initial batch in a place that people are unlikely to play - i.e. higher income communities. If it's released first, people aren't into the game, and there's a higher probability that it gets thrown out. Or, they release it at the very end of the game, in an area that had the fewest Park Places issued, and in higher income areas. Hell, they may even issue it overseas, where they won't give any Park Places..


Anyhow, I'm sure there is one and only one out there, and McD's knows exactly what frachise received it, and what it was on (cup, hash brown package, etc).... I'd bet the store does not know they were the one to get it. I wonder if it's issued based on product volume, the more cups they sell, the better the chance they received the Boardwalk piece.

Re: May order a GT500 tomorrow

You are correct. There is only one Boardwalk printed. Corporate knows where it it goes to, and the store never knows they had it. There was a little old lady that won the mil in Michigan or something last year.

Yeah... I think McDonald's could stand to give away a billion if they really wanted to.

It's not quite a mom and pop operation.

That's not entirely what I was getting at. Yes, they could 'afford' to give it away. But I'd bet they do not have it budgeted to take a $1M hit from this game - It's much easier to pay $25k in insurance, than risk paying out $1M
