FOOD! You’re most likely to win food in the McDonald’s Minion Mania game. It’s just as with the McDonald’s Monopoly game. But there are 5 other prizes which you do have a respectable shot of winning. I’ll get to those in a second.
Telling you about the many different types of food you can win would make an awfully boring post, don’t you think? I think so. However, it is worth mentioning the types of food items you can (and probably will) receive. Your odds of winning are 1 out of 6 according to the official Minions at McDonald’s page. Most (59,980,601) of the 361,295,467 game prizes are for food items. Here’s a quick run down of what types of food items you can hope to win. Then we’ll get onto the better prizes which still have decent odds:
- Premium Chicken Sandwich
- Quarter Pounder w/Cheese
- Chicken Snack Wrap
- Small McCafé Smoothie
- Fruit ‘N Yogurt Parfait
- Large Iced Coffee
- Sausage McGriddles
- Small Fries
- Medium Soft Drink
Now I’m hungry. Let’s move on to the bigger prizes:
Minions Movie Ticket – 250,000 available – Odds of Winning: 1 in 1,446
It’s a Fandango movie promo code valid for one showing of Minions (up to $13). Must be redeemed by 9/30/15.
Despicable Me 2 Mini-Movie Download – 100,000 available – Odds of Winning: 1 in 3,613
It’s a special 3 mini-movie collection starring characters from Despicable Me 2 and Minions. It’s a digital download worth $4.99.
Despicable Me 2 Movie Download – 1,000 available – Odds of Winning: 1 in 361,296
This free movie download may be just what your family wants. The movie is 2-years-old by now but animated movies hold up well, don’t you think? This prize is worth $2.99.
$50 Arch Card – 780 available – Odds of Winning: 1 in 463,200
This is a killer prize! Imagine getting $50 worth of food off the dollar menu. That’s a lot of free food.
NBC Sports Experience Trip – 26 available – Odds of Winning: 1 in 13,895,980
If this isn’t enough reason to take your kids to McDonald’s – I don’t know what is. 26 lucky winners will receive a 3-day, 2-night trip for 2 to attend a live-action NBC Sports Experience. This may even be for a playoff game. Date and time restrictions apply, of course. The prize holder gets to decide what sport they would like to attend. The winner will also receive a check for a discretionary $500. This prize is worth $4,200. Age restrictions apply.
There are other prizes up for grabs for the lucky few. For instance, each week McDonald’s is giving away $250,000 to one lucky winner. This runs from July 7th to August 3rd. Yep – McDonald’s will be giving $1,000,000 as part of their Minion Mania contest.
There are also several trips available to Universal Orlando Resort and Universal Studios Hollywood. There will be 14 winners for each of the prizes. They are 4-day, 3-night experiences.
The chances of winning these contests is pretty slim. But if you’re going to eat at McDonald’s anyway, you may as well try your luck. Buy any of these participating food items to earn a chance for a prize:
- Big Mac
- Egg McMuffin
- Sausage McMuffin with Egg
- Egg White Delight McMuffin
- Large McCafé Frozen Beverages
- 10 or 20-piece Chicken McNuggets
- Large or Medium Fries (your best choice if you want lots of chances to win)
- Premium Salads
