McDonald’s Monopoly Lies

I’m a regular McDonald’s diner for lunch or a quick breakfast.  On October 5th they started their Monopoly game: on certain food items you receive two game pieces.  Emblazoned everywhere around the store and on the food items is the following from their home page:

The asterisk will lead you to the details which state the odds are for food prizes and diminish as the game progresses.  In the first nine days I acquired seventy-nine (79) game pieces, five of them winners.  That puts the odds at 1 in 16; alright, it’s 1 in 15.8 but I rounded just like I’m sure they did.  All my game pieces were obtained from the same McDonald’s.

Either McDonald’s:

  • doesn’t like the store I frequent
  • can’t divide
  • is part of a massive conspiracy to deny me normal food winning odds
  • can’t randomly distribute game pieces

Or is simply misrepresenting the game or itself.

  1. I think it’s part of a massive conspiracy against you personally!
    I got 4 more pieces yesterday – no winners!
