The popular game is back, with plenty of prrizes and free food

McDonald’s has announced that its  hugely popular Monopoly game will be returning to restaurants across the country - including Birmingham - later this year.

The game gives customers the chance to win top prizes and free food.

Here’s what we know so far about the 2022 Monopoly, including how long it may last and what prizes could be won.

When is McDonald’s Monopoly 2022?

McDonalds Monopoly fever sweeps the UK every year. But what is the fascination?

An official start date has not yet been announced by McDonald’s, only that it will take place in the autumn.

Usually the game lasts for around six weeks, with the 2021 game running from 25 August to 5 October.

How does McDonald’s Monopoly work?

The McDonald’s version of the classic board game works in a very similar way, with the aim of the game for players to collect colour coordinated street names and train stations.

You will find them as stickers which appear on the packaging of your food throughout the game.

Each piece represents a tile on the board which you can pick up for free in the restaurant or play along online.

The game has grown in popularity since it was first launched in 2005.

When a set is complete, you win a prize. You can also get an ‘instant win’ which can be redeemed for a prize instantly.

Instant food prizes can be redeemed by handing over the game stickers to staff at McDonald’s.

You can also cash in game pieces on the touch screen kiosks in store or via the app by entering in the 12 digit prize code.

The more food items you buy, the more pieces you receive.

Customers who select fries as their side will get an extra two stickers.

If you choose a side salad, vegetable bag or fruit bag instead, you will get three more stickers, and a drink will get you a further three stickers.
