McDonald’s Monopoly History
McDonald’s Monopoly has been around since 1987 at local McDonald’s restaurants in the US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Australia, Switzerland and a few other countries. At that time, the rules were printed and inserted with the board game. People would get one game piece with two stamps per visit to McDonald’s, some of which were instant winner pieces while others were board game pieces that you could place on your game. Prizes ranged from 100 dollars to 1 million dollars. Sweepstakes included dream homes, vacations, a Lincoln Town Car and several other things. The number of prizes further increased in the 1990’s and included IBM Computers, NBA tickets and a Chevy Tahoe car. In 2001, winners were given three choices for getting their prize of $1 million – as diamonds, gold or receiving for 20 years a sum of $50,000 per year.
