How to Get Free McDonald's Monopoly Game Codes

Most of the McDonald's UK Monopoly 2022 game pieces are only available with purchase.

Selling or Trading Game Pieces

If you're thinking about saving money by buying game pieces from other people, be aware that McDonald's Monopoly's rules specifically prohibit game piece trading. If you do it anyway and you win, you could be disqualified, cheating yourself out of a prize.

It's also worth asking yourself why someone would sell a game piece that is a potential winner. The most obvious reason is that the seller is running a game piece trading scam, where an unscrupulous person tries to cheat others out of their prizes or their money. Trying to buy game pieces could expose you to these scams.

If you have a rare piece, you've all but won the prize. If you have a common piece, they're a dime a dozen. Either way, don't be tempted to "team up" with anyone else to share prizes. It's better in the long run to use the official methods of getting Monopoly game pieces: by mail or with purchase.
