Have you noticed this on your McDonald’s Monopoly tickets?

One of the most popular times to get McDonalds is here as customers play to win free food and luxury prizes in McDonald’s Monopoly.

Prizes include experience days, clothing vouchers, holidays and more!

But have you noticed this about the Monopoly tickets stuck on your food and drink packaging?

This is because Monopoly was actually set to take place in March so the tickets could be redeemed in the next two months.

However, Covid restrictions meant that Monopoly couldn’t go ahead as we saw store closures and McDonald’s wanted to prioritise the safety of their customers.

On their website, the fast food chain explained “Over 200 million MONOPOLY game pieces had already been printed and dated under audited, secure processes.”

So the packaging wasn’t wasted, “McDonald’s has repurposed the packaging with these outdated game pieces.”

McDonald’s has repurposed the packaging with these outdated game pieces to ensure the MONOPOLY promotion at McDonald’s could return for customers as soon as it was safe to do so in August.
