McDonald's Monopoly returned to it's UK restaurants in September - but your days to get those rare pieces and prizes are limited, as we reveal when McDonald's Monopoly ends in 2022.

Last year's VIP version of the fast food game has got even better with more chances to win thanks to McDonald's Double Peel - which means customers can now peel on pack, then peel in the McDonald’s app, which features a digital game board and prize wallet, giving them more ways to collect and win! Whether you can't resist a McDonald's breakfast (opens in new tab) or are still feeling a little annoyed at the menu price hike (opens in new tab), this might make you want to go back and order.

The game returned to restaurants on September 7th and existing and new customers who are signed up to My McDonald's Rewards can also receive a free code to play the game.

How to play McDonald's Monopoly:

For anyone who hasn't ever played the game, customers have the chance to win prizes by collecting game piece stickers peeled off from menu items such as fries, wraps, drinks and McFlurry’s.

The McDonald’s much-loved promotion was launched back in 2005 and works in a similar way to the classic Monopoly board game.

Simply by peeling off the game pieces from these selected items to reveal a property or instant win prize, customers can instantly win free food items and bigger prizes or collect property pieces of the same colour for a bigger prize via the McDonald’s app and online. 

Scan the property code to complete the set and win that prize. But that's not all, each property banked in your Monopoly wallet gives you another chance to win with an extra Peel feature.

Which McDonald Monopoly pieces are rare?

According to Monopolyland (opens in new tab) there are nine rare McDonald's Monopoly pieces each year. Mayfair remains the rarest piece with only 5 in circulation during each competition timeframe.

The remaining rare McDonald's Monopoly pieces include Liverpool Street Station, Bond Street (Green), Coventry Street (Yellow), Strand (Red), Marlborough Street (Orange), Euston Road (Light blue), Northumberland Avenue (Pink) and the classic Old Kent Road (Brown).
