McDonald’s to Accept Monopoly Money

$5 MILLION IN PRIZES UP FOR GRABS AS MONOPOLY AT McDONALD’S RETURNS

Kiwis are being encouraged to raid their MONOPOLY game banks as tomorrow for one day only McDonald’s will be the first business in New Zealand to accept MONOPOLY game money in return for a small frozen coke.

The initiative celebrates the return of the MONOPOLY Millionaire game to McDonald’s. $5 million worth of prizes will be given away, making it the biggest prize pool the company has ever offered in New Zealand.

McDonald’s New Zealand director of marketing, Chris Brown, is excited about MONOPOLY Millionaire which will see over a million prizes up for grabs including holidays, entertainment packs, 700,000 McDonald’s menu items and even a car.

“We know MONOPOLY game is a Kiwi summer favourite so if you open up your cupboards and bring a MONOPOLY game money note into a McDonald’s restaurant tomorrow, we’ll exchange it for a free small frozen coke*.

“On top of that, MONOPOLY Millionaire gives McDonald’s customers a one in five chance** of winning some of the greatest prizes we’ve ever offered. It’s now a good thing to play with your food,” adds Brown.

*McDonald’s restaurants nationwide will be accepting any denomination of MONOPOLY game money on Wednesday 30th January between 10.30am and midnight in exchange for a free small frozen coke (limited to one per person, per day). No change will be given.

**Customers will receive a MONOPOLY Millionaire game ticket on selected McDonald’s food items and will need to peel and reveal to see if they’ve won a prize.
