With Macca’s Monopoly, there are two main ways to win a prize – you can get Instant Win cards, or you can collect all the properties within one colour set. And every year, there’s one rare token for every colour – one that’s a lot harder to find than the others.
If you’re playing McDonalds Monopoly in Australia, you’ll no doubt have your eyes on the top prize.
But to get it, you need both Park Lane and Mayfair. Which is the rare one? Do you already have it? Let’s take a look…
What is Mayfair in McDonalds Monopoly?
Mayfair in McDonalds Monopoly is one of the dark blue properties. You can find it either as a physical sticker attached to eligible food items on the menu, or you may be awarded it on the MyMacca’s app as a bonus property when you claim a Chance card.
As one of the dark blue properties, you could win a car if you get Mayfair as well as Park Lane. The odds are pretty low, but you never know!
Every property has a voucher code in Macca’s Monopoly. Mayfair’s is A540. You’ll also want to look for Park Lane which is A539.
Is Mayfair rare in McDonalds Monopoly?
Mayfair is not one of the rare properties in McDonalds Monopoly. The rare dark blue card is Park Lane. Mayfair is a common property and so will likely pop up quite regularly on your food items or via the app.
See this list of rare Maccas Monopoly pieces to know which ones you should be on the lookout for.
Considering the reputation that Mayfair has in the board game for being the most expensive and ‘best’ property on the board, you may get excited if you find it during Macca’s Monopoly. Sorry though, as it’s Park Lane you should be looking for.
The odds of pulling Mayfair haven’t been made clear in the terms and conditions, but what we do know is that there are 57 million prizes to be won (which includes the 22 rare property cards), and a maximum of 194 million tickets in total.
That leaves 137 million pieces that will either be a common property, such as Mayfair, or a Chance card. If they were all created with equal odds, that would mean there would be around 7.5 million Mayfair properties you could get either physically or digitally, with odds of around 1 in 25.
Park Lane is the rare one – there are just two of these in the whole game. So the odds of getting a Park Lane sticker are around 1 in 97 million. Good luck!
What to do if you have Mayfair in Maccas Monopoly
Once you’ve found Mayfair, you’ll want to make sure it’s registered in the MyMacca’s app (unless you’ve already won it as a digital piece from a Chance card). If it is a physical ticket, then keep it safe.
You won’t win unless you find Park Lane though, so keep the hunt going. Don’t ask for it online, or offer to split the prize with your Mayfair ticket. The Macca’s Monopoly terms forbid trading or selling tickets, so you’ll just get disqualified.

The Bottom Line
Mayfair might feel like a special property due to its value in the main Monopoly board game, but as a token in Macca’s Monopoly it’s fairly common.
Still, keep it safe if you do get it – because you’ll need it if you also manage to find Park Lane in order to claim the top prize.
Make sure you register your properties in the app as soon as you get them, and store the tickets somewhere secure. After all, someone has to win.
