If you collected all three light blue stickers in McDonalds Monopoly UK 2023, you’d have won a set of wireless earbuds from Skullcandy.
The Angel Islington (M502) and Pentonville Road (M504) were pretty easy to get, but getting hold of Euston Road (M503) was harder as there were fewer of them available.
But how hard was it to find Euston Road in McDonalds Monopoly in 2023? Read on to find out…
(Note: If you’re in Australia, then head over to the Australia McDonalds Monopoly guide instead)
How Many Euston Road stickers Are There in McDonalds Monopoly?
In McDonalds Monopoly in 2023 there were 3,000 Euston Road stickers available to be peeled from McDonalds food and drinks packaging. There were also 150 more to be won via the McDonalds app as part of the Double Peel game.
That makes a total of 3,150 pairs of Skullcandy earbuds that were available to be won.
How Rare is Euston Road in McDonalds Monopoly?
Euston Road is quite a rare sticker in McDonalds Monopoly. With only 3,000 paper stickers to be revealed available, it was the joint-seventh rarest in the game in 2023.
As a rule, the higher the value of the property on the Monopoly board, the higher the prize value and the rarer the sticker is. The brown stickers are the easiest to find, with over 2 million of each, but the prize is much smaller – it’s just an Extra Value meal.
So if you get a Euston Road Monopoly sticker, keep it safe!
What Happens if You Get Euston Road in McDonalds Monopoly?
If you have Euston Road in McDonalds Monopoly, you’ll probably want to try to find The Angel Islington and Pentonville Road to complete the set. The other two stickers are very common so you shouldn’t find it all that hard.
The cheapest way to complete the set is to hang around McDonalds picking up people’s old tokens – this is known as wombling. It’s legal, but it is kind of frowned upon. The easiest way is simply to buy more food.
Check out this list of McDonalds Monopoly menu items – I’ve listed them by price so you can see the cheapest items to buy with stickers. Within a few days, you would have a really high chance of finding the missing sticker that you need to win a pair of earphones.
If you do collect enough stickers to win a prize, I would advise that you avoid sharing photos of your Monopoly pieces on social media, at least until after you have put in your claim. In 2019, someone had their prize stolen after sharing a photo on Snapchat.
A McDonald’s spokesperson said: “It’s great to see people taking part in Monopoly at McDonald’s and celebrating their wins on social media. We would advise that customers claim their prize before they share their game piece code online.”
Can You Buy or Sell McDonalds Monopoly Stickers?
You may see people who are desperate for a Euston Rd sticker to complete the set taking to social media to beg for or buy the missing piece needed to win the earbuds.

However, there’s a key flaw in this plan. The McDonalds Monopoly rules state that not only are you not allowed to buy or trade gamepieces, but that if your code is shared anywhere online it will become invalid.
Someone did try to sell a whole reel of unpeeled stickers on Gumtree, but the ad was taken down pretty quickly.
To claim a prize, you have to hand in your paper ticket and also say which branch of McDonalds you got it from. If you can’t do this, you may be disqualified from winning.
