MC Donald’s monopoly allocates prizes in different parts of a second each day – making token codes almost “meaningless.”
This means there is no better time of day to play the game.
Instead, times are allocated at random.
The highly anticipated game lasts for six weeks and players receive rewards by winning token combinations, “instant wins” and entering unique codes into the online game.
Each token comes with a unique code that you enter to try and win on the McDonald’s website, such as cash prizes of up to £ 100,000, UK Gateway and Food Voucher.
But it turns out that prizes aren’t determined by what your code is but when you enter the competition.
The Maccies have set up special prizes for “winning moments” throughout the day, which are very accurate. You have to enter the code in the correct tenth of a second.
No one knows when these moments are or how long they last, but it does mean that whatever code you peel from McDonald’s packaging has a chance to win.
In the terms and conditions of the game, the restaurant giant explains that if more than one player enters their code during the winning moment, the winner will be the one who enters it first.
This means you can type your code from other fans and lose to them one second later.
The shocking revelation about the winners was announced in 2019 when a fan became “curious” about how it worked.
Sam Bailey on Twitter. Written: “I was curious how #McDonaldsMonopoly online codes work. So I saw it.
“The code on the sticker is largely meaningless (in addition to being a unique identifier and proof of purchase.)
“Prizes are pre-allocated in different parts of the 41-day promotional period.”
Now, we are not math buffs but now it seems that the chances of winning are even lower.
What are the McDonald’s Monopoly 2021 Rewards?
Prizes range from free food such as apple pie and Big Max to holiday gifts.
Some monopoly pieces are harder to obtain than others, because they are less available and usually make bigger, more expensive rewards.
