It feels like ages since getting a Big Mac and nervously peeling the Monopoly sticker back to discover whether you’ve won yourself a free cheeseburger, or better yet a brand new MINI.
Well, that’s because it has been ages. The popular fast-food chain’s annual competition has been gone for almost two-and-a-half years after lockdown pushed things back.
Maccies lovers will be glad to know that it is back and better than ever, for 2021 and will begin today, on August 25th.

Number of Stickers
Watch out though, not all meals come with stickers. Of course, people are tempted to buy lots of McDonald’s to be in the chance of getting more prizes. But to promote healthier eating, meals such as Big Mac and nuggets don’t have any stickers. Therefore, swap these for a Big Tasty or the Chicken Selects to earn 3 stickers.
Fries are also thought to be an unhealthier option, so have been demoted to 2 stickers since the last McDonalds monopoly in 2019.
It is reported that in 2018 alone, 8,006,175 prizes were claimed, including 6 Mini Coopers, three £100,000 cash prizes, two £25k prizes and a Universal Holiday. These winners getting all this money makes the monopoly competition feel even more competitive.
