Odds of Winning Albertsons Monopoly
Albertsons Monopoly is back for its ninth consecutive year. The contest, which involves collecting Monopoly game pieces from various Albertsons-owned stores, has been something that has created a bit of a stir in recent years. You collect game pieces and, if you are lucky, you will get the right pieces and win the grand prize of $1 million.

Until May 9, you will have the option to gain Monopoly game pieces when you shop at an Albertsons-owned store. The overall goal of the game is to match a set of properties on a Monopoly game board to win a specific prize. Prizes range from free groceries or merchandise to $1 million.

Practically 2,300 stores across the United States will be offering game pieces to its customers. This year is the first year Safeway shoppers will be eligible to play. ACME, United Supermarkets, Star Market, Safeway, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Pavilions, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, and several smaller, local stores are all offering the Monopoly game pieces and a chance to win $1 million to its customers.

The Odds of Winning the Albertsons Monopoly Game

The contest in which people win millions of dollars has been a highly-anticipated event each year since it started nine years ago. Since Albertsons is continually growing, the contest is continually growing as well. This year, the prizes are bigger as last year and the probability of winning is much higher than previous years.

What are the chances of winning Albertsons Monopoly?

Odds of Winning Albertsons Monopoly
Now that you’ve read a bit about the contest, you may be thinking about trying your hand at winning. What are the odds of winning Albertsons Monopoly and taking home one of the $1 million grand prizes?

To win the grand prize of $1 million you need to find two of the hardest to find game pieces. Last year, the chances of finding the rare pieces were 1 in 405 million (not so bad). Chances of finding one of these rare game pieces are now 1 in 413 million (a bit higher than last year). So, that means (on the first try) your odds of getting both of the pieces necessary to win $1 million are more than two trillion to one. Those odds don’t look great.

However, there is one huge difference in this year’s Albertsons Monopoly game. Instead of there only being three $1 million grand prizes there are also three $1 million vacation home prizes (which are paid out in cash). This ups your chances from two trillion to one to one trillion to one. Most years many people win gift cards, small cash prizes and free grocery items. If no one wins the grand prize Albertsons offers a “second chance drawing.” In previous years the “second chance” or “last chance” drawing was only for $500,000. This year the last chance drawing will be for $1 million.

Increasing Your Odds of Winning Albertsons Monopoly

As stated above, you’ll need to collect rare game pieces to win the grand prize. It isn’t very likely you’ll find one yourself. You are more likely to encounter “rare” games pieces through online trading. Some people trade game pieces to give themselves a better chance of winning one of the prizes (even if it is not the grand prize). It isn’t usually very hard to find someone willing to get rid of a “semi-rare” pieces that may complete a winning set for someone else.

You don’t pay to play though, so you’ve really got nothing to lose. Aside from buying your regular groceries, Albertsons Monopoly costs absolutely nothing for those who play. So from now until May 9, when you purchase your groceries at an Albertsons grocer, you will get game pieces. Obviously, if you shop at these stores regularly, your chances will increase over the next few months as you collect game pieces.
