Martin Lewis' MoneySavingExpert reveals McDonald's Monopoly tricks to boost your chance of winning | The Sun
CONSUMER champion Martin Lewis has revealed his top tips for getting lucky on the McDonald's Monopoly game.
The fast food giant's game is back from today, September 7, and fans will be brimming with excitement at the thought of bagging a prize.
The game works by customers collecting game pieces in the form of stickers when they buy qualifying McDonald's products.
These can then be redeemed for a number of prizes, from McDonald's food items to £100k in free cash.
Now Martin Lewis has revealed four top tips for boosting your chances of bagging a big winner, MoneySavingExpert reports.

Once you reach 1,500 points you can redeem your first reward.
1,500 points gets you small fries, a medium salad and more.
But if you're signed up to the scheme you also get a code for a free bonus peel for Monopoly.
The peel is sent to the email address you set your account up with.
Look after rarely-found stickers
Because McDonald's Monopoly works like the normal game, you have to collect properties, including stations.
But within each set of properties there is a rare or uncommon sticker.
If you find one of these, make sure you keep hold of it and it will be easier to complete the set.

However, while these were rare in previous McDonald's Monopoly's, it's not guaranteed that they will be again this time around.
Pick up unchecked or unredeemed vouchers
Just because the game has started, that doesn't mean everyone will be playing.
So if you're in your nearest McDonald's restaurant, make sure you have a look around for abandoned packaging with stickers still on it.
You may be able to find some free food instant wins, an online game code, or a property you need to finish a set.
