The new @McDonalds online Monopoly game is kind of dumb.

I retain a certain fondness for the Scotsman, and I always liked their annual Monopoly-themed prize contest.  The last online one that they had was kind of fun, too: you got to move your piece around the board and not win anything past some downloads and other junk like that, but it was at least giving the illusion that you were playing a game.  Contrasted to that, just picking one card out of three is a kind of lame way to not win anything.  I probably won’t even bother to keep the pieces, this time around.

Honestly, McDonald’s is usually better at this sort of promotion.  What happened?

    Well, It could be that it as cheaper to do “three card monte” then a boardgamesque game.

    I cannot win anything with this new online game anymore. The first three codes I entered I won 30 Coke rewards points, but I have entered 11 codes since then and have lost each time. I always get a “Try Again” notice. I’m starting to think that McDonald’s gives you the first three as prizes to make you purchase more McDonald’s and then suckers you in by making every code thereafter a losing code. I’m done with McDonald’s monopoly. The online games were fun to play in years past, but not anymore.
