If you’ve visited an Albertsons or Safeway in the past month, you know they’ve kickstarted their Monopoly sweepstakes game for the year. After the game was released on February 9, it has already gotten the attention of millions with its $1 million grand prizes. Additionally, you no longer have to collect physical game pieces. Now, you can play Albertsons Monopoly online!
That’s right! The contest, which has been highly-anticipated each of its nine years, can appeal to even the most tech-savvy amongst us.
How to Play Albertsons Monopoly Online
All you have to do is go shopping at an Albertsons-owned store for your groceries (groceries that you’ll buy anyway). Then, you collect the game pieces and you can play online.
To play online, you simply fill out a submission form. You enter information like your name, email address, address, phone number, etc. When you get a Monopoly game piece, you enter the online code into your “play monopoly” account and begin collecting your game pieces.
You have to get matching game pieces to win or two of the “rare” game pieces. Prizes include two $1 million prizes, four million-dollar vacation homes, and the total pool of smaller prizes are worth more than $200 million. Of course, eight years ago (when it first started), Albertsons had far fewer stores and far fewer Monopoly game pieces being distributed.
