Most People Don’t Know
The biggest factor working in your favor is most people don’t know the game is going to begin, or that there is even a Pre-Promotion Sweepstakes. Since there hasn’t been a large amount of advertising done, most people simply don’t know about it. The less people who know about it, the fewer people who enter the contest, giving you a better chance to win the prize.
Special Code Needed
In order to enter the Pre-Promotion Sweepstakes, you need a special code (The special code is “McDMONOPOLY”). This code is free, but it’s buried in the fine print of the official rules so it can be difficult to find. That means that even if someone knows about the McDonald’s Monopoly official page, they may not know the code to enter the Pre-Promotion Sweepstakes, further limiting the number of people who enter.
The Odds Are Determined by the Number of Participants
The odds of winning most of the big prizes in this contest are not good. They range from tens of millions to 1 to 3.5 billion to 1. The odds of winning the Pre-Promotion Sweepstakes are much better than the odds of winning other prizes in the contest. In fact, the odds will likely be well under 1 million to 1, which will make the odds hundreds of times better than many of the other big prizes being offered.
The Pre-Promotion Sweepstakes can only be entered for a limited amount of time. While the official game will be going for approximately two months, the Pre-Promotion Sweepstakes only lasts a week. The limited time to enter this sweepstakes means even fewer people will be entering it due to the time constraints.
The best part about the Pre-Promotion Sweepstakes is that it’s absolutely free. There is no need to spend money to buy food items to get game pieces for a chance to win. All you need is the special code to enter. While there are plenty of opportunities to win smaller prizes (especially food prizes), the opportunities to win the larger prizes are long. Simply by the way the Pre-Promotion Sweepstakes is set up, it should give you by far the best opportunity to win something big in McDonald’s Monopoly 2014.
The $10,000 isn’t the only prize available for the sweepstakes. In addition to be entered into the $10,000 prize, those who enter the Pre-Promotion Sweepstakes are also entered into a $50,000 prize which is part of the official game. But the odds of winning this prize will be much less, since all people who sign up for the official game will be entered into this sweepstakes drawing.
