MCDONALD’S is once again giving customers the chance to win fabulous prizes including £100,000 in cash with its annual Monopoly giveaway – but you’ll need to find the rarest game tiles first.
From Mayfair to Bond Street, we can reveal the nine most sought-after tokens to look out for on your (and other people’s) meals to give you the best hope of winning.

What are the rare game pieces in McDonald’s Monopoly?
The McDonald’s Monopoly sweepstake is back for another year, running from March 20 until April 30.
The game tiles are no longer sticky but one thing hasn’t changed: the rarest Monopoly tiles are the same as last year and just as hard to find.
A general rule of thumb is: the better the Monopoly set, the more difficult they’ll be to track down.
That means the dark blue Mayfair square will be the rarest of all – with only four available in the country.

If you do find one though – as well as its matching Park Lane token – then you’ll bag a £100,000 cash prize.
The odds are stacked against you, but there are ways to boost your chances of winning.
If you win one of these coveted stickers, it should have info on it telling you how to claim your prize.
Some of them are instant wins, but others are collectable stickers – meaning you’ll have to find the whole set to win.
McDonald’s has confirmed the rare tiles are the same this year – which we’ve listed below along with the prizes you could win if you find them and all the other tokens in the same set.

How does McDonald’s Monopoly work?
Every time you buy a qualifying McDonald’s product, there will be tiles on the packet that represent tiles on the classic version of Monopoly.
You can stick these tiles onto a board available from branches of McDonald’s, and collect them to win prizes.
Some tiles will be instant prizes, such as a free drink or a burger, and there will also be an online code, which can be redeemed for an online voucher or prize.
But the main tokens to look out for will be part of a traditional double or triple set, where the prizes are much bigger.
McDonald’s You can pick up a game board in stores like this one – this board is from last year so it’s a bit outdated
McDonald’s now does a Big Mac with bacon – and the Grand Big Mac and Junior Mac are back
You get a double or triple game piece which consists of two or three tiles depending on what you order.
For example, medium and large fries have double labels.
Meanwhile most burgers like Big Macs come with triple labels.
For the first time, customers will receive Monopoly tiles on carrot bags and side salads as well as Big Flavour Wraps including the new Spicy Veggie One.
