You’ll needed to collect all three orange stickers in McDonalds Monopoly UK if you wanted to win a Nintendo Switch portable games console.
Bow Street (M408) and Vine Street (M410) were pretty easy to get, but getting hold of Marlborough Street (M409) was a little trickier, as there were fewer of them available.

How many Marlborough Street stickers were there in McDonalds Monopoly?
In McDonalds Monopoly in 2022 there were 500 Marlborough Street stickers attached to food and drinks packaging. There are also five more ‘Property Peel’ stickers that you can win via the app as part of the Double Peel game. That makes a total of 505 Nintendo Switches that were available to be won.
How rare was Marlborough Street in McDonalds Monopoly?
Marlborough Street was pretty rare in McDonalds Monopoly. With only 505 stickers available, it was the fifth rarest after Mayfair, Bond Street, Coventry Street and Strand.
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 McDonalds Monopoly set is the easiest to complete, with over 2 million of each sticker, but the prize is much smaller – it’s just an Extra Value meal.
What happens if you get Marlborough Street in McDonalds Monopoly?
If you have Marlborough Street in McDonalds Monopoly, you’ll probably want to try to find Bow Street and Vine Street to complete the set. The other two stickers are very common so you shouldn’t find it all that hard.
In fact, I managed to find these two stickers in my first two McDonalds meals of the promotion!
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.

Some are really desperate to play Nintendo Switch Monopoly. The others would sell the prize right away and use the cash.

Bc I have two of the oranges and if anyone has Marlborough Street let’s get a portable games console together, sell it and split the cash
Whatever your reason for wanting to win, you really shouldn’t buy or trade McDonalds Monopoly stickers. The 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.
To claim a prize, you have to hand in your paper ticket and also say which branch of McDonalds you got it from.
You should also avoid posting pictures of your winning orange stickers to social media. People have had their prizes stolen from doing this before!
A McDonald’s spokesperson advises: “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.”
