HONOLULU – It was Hilo resident Glen M.’s lucky day when he decided to play the 2014 MONOPOLY Game at McDonald’s. After ordering his Egg White Delight McMuffin®, Glen peeled off his third and final game piece to his winning combination of Atlantic Avenue, Ventnor Avenue and Marvin Gardens, that won him a family vacation to a Beaches Resort in Jamaica or Turks and Caicos.
“I didn’t know we won, until my wife took a double look at the game card and shouted ‘WE WON,’” said Glen M. of Hilo. “Both my wife and I contributed to this endeavor and ate at McDonald’s quite a bit because it was the best deal at a great value.”
This year, the MONOPOLY Game at McDonald’s returned for its 22nd season and delighted customers across the country with a wide range of prizes from partners such as Target, Redbox, Shell, VIZIO, Delta Air Lines, Shutterfly and Softcard, among others. There were four $100,000 prizes through the “Free Parking” Game Stamp, ten $5,000 Target Gift Cards with early access to the Black Friday in-store sale and one $1 million prize.
To play the game, consumers were able to collect game pieces on a wide variety of menu favorites.
“Our team was so excited to learn that we had a MONOPOLY winner close to home,” said Pat Lim, a McDonald’s Restaurants of Hawaii owner and operator. “We congratulate Glen and his family and look forward to hopefully another local winner in 2015.”
Glenn M. is not the only Hawaii player to win a McDonald’s sweepstakes game recently. Earlier this year, a Kihei, Maui resident was one of six winners of the “Peel. Play. Ole Ole!” sweepstakes and won an exclusive trip to the championship match of the FIFA World Cup on July 13 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
