It’s that time of year again! Everyone’s favorite fast food “lottery” game McDonalds Monopoly is back in full force. One of the biggest questions on people’s minds during this crazy time is which pieces are the rare and hard to find winners! As you likely know there is only one “rare” piece per color so you really only need to find that piece to be the big winner.
Rare Pieces for Money Monopoly in 2016
When it comes to McDonalds Monopoly the rare and hard to find pieces are what separates the winners from the losers. For each color set (and railroads) on the board there is only one piece that’s hard to find. The others are pretty common. For example the odds of finding all of the pieces (other than the rare monopoly spaces) are either 1-10 or 1-11. Yep a couple meals and chances are you’ve found the common Monopoly piece you need.

The 2016 Monopoly Prize List – What can You Win
So McDonalds has gotten a bit lazy when it comes to prizes. Monopoly stickers in 2016 aren’t going to result in jetski’s, sports cars, or even gift cards. Now if you pull a winner it’s going to be a cash prize. Kind of boring but at the same time how many people would really want a jetski over the cash? If you really want the jetski you can buy it anyways, so I guess it’s a win win!
So this year you’re either going to walk away with $50, $500, $1000, $2000, $5000, $10,000, $25,000, $50,000, $1,000,000.
I guess this is why they decided to rename it “Money Monopoly” for 2016.
New for 2016 you can also boost your chances of winning big by using the McDonalds App to redeem any offer between March 29th and April 25th. Every week McDonalds is going to be giving away bonus prizes to people that didn’t pull a winning sticker (including $50,000 weekly prizes) to players who use the app to redeem an offer during this period. The best part is 99% of people won’t take the time to do it, so your odds are infinitely better to win via the app.
