The McDonald’s Monopoly promotion has been a fan-favourite for the last 30 or so years – yet one woman has always thought the prizes were a myth.
Last month (6 September), Maccies announced that their famous game has returned with a new ‘bank or swap peel’ feature.
“Reveal a more frequently found property,” McDonald’s explained.
“Either bank it to your wallet, swap it for another more frequently found property (it could be the same one) or swap it for a £100k prize draw entry.
“The Monopoly peel doesn’t end after you peel on pack, it extends.
“With Double Peel returning, customers can peel on pack then peel in app, giving them more ways to collect and win.”
McDonald’s will always try to add new features to keep the promotion fresh, however, it seems that TikToker Georgia has always thought the prizes were a ‘myth’.
In a viral clip shared on TikTok last year, Georgia showed off her winning label.
“When they said the McDonald’s Monopoly prizes were a myth but you just won a £1,000 instant win,” she wrote in the text overlay as she held out her cash prize.
She captioned the post: “Wthhh it’s actually legit- moral of the story: EAT maccys errrday!!!”
Regular McDonald’s eaters were fuming as they took to the comments.
One person wrote: “And there’s me getting a fruit bag and chips kmt.”
“I always win the free drink after I’ve just bought one,” another complained.
While a third commented: “I won an apple pie…twice.”
