After the game ended, you still 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 for 2023 they were correct.

McDonalds Monopoly Prizes

The top prize in McDonalds Monopoly 2023 was £100,000 cash. Players had five chances to win this top prize. Other prizes included 21 electric cars, 90 holidays worth £2,000 each, 160 gaming laptops, and 2010 chances to win £200 cash.

To win the big prizes, you needed to collect a full set of coloured Monopoly properties. You needed both of the Dark Blue properties, Mayfair and Park Lane to win the £100k cash.

You could also win instantly with smaller prizes including cash, gift cards, McDonalds Gold Cards, cinema tickets, t-shirts, backpacks and, of course, food prizes.

There were also lots of discount vouchers that give you money off your purchases at McDonalds and a host of other retail stores.

We know that at least two of the £100k prizes have been claimed, along with plenty of others. It’ll be interesting to see if more news comes out about the prizes claimed in 2023.

How To Play McDonalds Monopoly

McDonalds Monopoly 2023 brought back the Double Peel game, that was first introduced in 2022. As well as peeling the stickers attached to food, when you entered your stickers into the app you got to peel again.

The McDonalds app was more important than ever in 2023 As well as giving you extra chances to win, it was a place to store your property stickers in the Monopoly Wallet, and it’s how you 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 2023 weren’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 either get four or six stickers, depending on which meal you bought.

If you really wanted to boost your chances of winning, the best tactic is 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 had to 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 are 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-to-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 McDonald’s Monopoly UK is to keep your winning game pieces secret. Scanning them into the app straight away helped to keep them safe, and you shouldn’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, McDonalds Monopoly was great fun in 2023 and I’m really looking forward to it being back in 2024.
