McDonald’s Monopoly is a game where customers collect tags attached to menu items to win prices. The rarest streets awarded up to a million in price money. There was one caveat though, the winning tickets were very hard to come by. Only 1 in 150 million tickets were Short Line Road, which had the PT Cruiser as a price.
Yet between the games inception in 1987 right up until the year 2000, there were no legitimate winners of the million dollar game. A framework of fraud, with the mysterious Uncle Jerry at the top carefully sold the winning tickets to those who could pay the high price.
This continued for 13 years, right up until the beginning of the year 2000 when an anonymous tip came in at the FBI bureau. The source claimed that the McDonald’s games were rigged by an insider. At the helm of the new investigation was Special agent Richard Dent.
