McDonalds Monopoly is back in the UK and it’s bigger than ever! With the new ‘Double Peel’ game, you have even more chances to win.
But how do you play? What can you win? And how do you claim your prizes?
In this guide to McDonalds Monopoly, I’ll explain everything you need to know.
McDonalds Monopoly 2022 Dates
McDonald’s Monopoly started on Wednesday 7th September 2022. The game always runs for six weeks in the UK so it will end on Tuesday 18th October 2022.
After the game ends, you’ll have a few months to collect your prizes. Check the exact date on the food packaging to be sure. In past years, the end dates were wrong and had to be adjusted, but we can expect them to be correct in 2022.
McDonalds Monopoly Prizes
The top prize in McDonalds Monopoly 2022 is £100,000 cash. Players have five chances to win this top prize. Other prizes include 21 electric cars, 90 holidays worth £2,000 each, 185 home entertainment vouchers worth £1,000 each and 505 Nintendo Switch consoles.
You can also win instantly with smaller prizes including cash, gift cards, McDonalds Gold Cards, cinema tickets, t-shirts, backpacks and, of course, food prizes.
You can also expect to see lots of discount vouchers that give you money off your purchases at McDonalds and a host of other retail stores.

How To Play McDonalds Monopoly
McDonalds Monopoly is a little different in 2022 than it has been in previous years. This year, the promotion is called Double Peel because as well as peeling the stickers attached to food, when you enter your stickers into the app you get to peel again.

The McDonalds app is more important than ever this year. As well as giving you extra chances to win, it’s a place to store your property stickers in the Monopoly Wallet and it’s how you’ll redeem your prizes.

McDonalds Monopoly Boards
Paper McDonalds Monopoly gameboards are a thing of the past. No longer do you need to stick your stickers to the board. In fact, the stickers of 2022 aren’t even sticky!
Instead, there’s an online Monopoly board inside the McDonalds app. Here you can see all the properties and keep track of which ones you have and which ones you need to collect.
Which McDonalds Items Have Monopoly Stickers
Not everything you buy at McDonalds has stickers. So if you want to play the game then you should take a look at this list of qualifying items so that you know what to buy.
When you buy a McDonalds meal, you will get either four or six stickers, depending on which meal you get.
If you really want to boost your chances of winning, I suggest buying a side order of Mozzarella dippers or a McFlurry for two extra stickers on each.
Rare McDonalds Monopoly Pieces
The key to understanding how McDonalds Monopoly works is to know that there is not an equal number of each property printed. In fact, the rarest properties have just four stickers printed with one more to find in the app. This is how McDonalds limits the number of prizes.
For example, to win a car, you must collect all three Green streets. Regent Street and Oxford Street are easy to find, but there are only 20 of the third piece – Bond Street. Therefore, if you’re lucky enough to find Bond Street, you’ll find it pretty easy to complete the set, as the other two pieces are very common.
This list of rare McDonalds Monopoly pieces shows you which are the hard tot get properties that you should be on the lookout for.
Of course, you should enter every playing piece into the app, to keep them safe and also to get another chance to win with the Double Peel game.
A Word of Warning
One very important piece of advice for anyone playing McDonalds Monopoly in 2022 is to keep your winning game pieces secret. Scan them into the app straight away and then whatever you do, don’t share photos of them to social media.
If you do so, you could have your prize stolen or otherwise invalidate your claim.
The Bottom Line
For Monopoly fans, McDonalds Monopoly is the highlight of the year. I love peeling back the stickers and collecting the properties even more than I love winning prizes!
Granted, the most I’ve ever won so far has been a free McFlurry. But with the Double Peel game, I’m even more excited to play McDonalds Monopoly in 2022.
