PHILADELPHIA, April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The MONEY MONOPOLY® game at McDonald's® returns, bringing Philadelphia area residents $15,000 in free SEPTA rides and $3,000 in free parking. This year, the return of MONEY MONOPOLY means that fans will have one-in-four odds of winning, multiple ways to play and the chance at over $100 million in cash and food prizes. The excitement begins with an exclusive kick-off event at Dilworth Park on April 5, followed by a celebration at Citizens Bank Park on April 12 and continued prizes and giveaways throughout the month of April.
McDonald's® Restaurants of the Greater Philadelphia Region will celebrate the launch of the MONEY MONOPOLY game by inviting customers and fans to join them and AMP Radio at Dilworth Park on April 5 as part of their kickoff event, which will bring the MONEY MONOPOLY game to life. Individuals will have an opportunity to take part in a life-size Monopoly board game, play Monopoly trivia games, jump into a money machine, take selfies with Mr. Monopoly, and win Monopoly-related prizes.
"We're thrilled the MONEY MONOPOLY game is back at McDonald's," said John Durante, President, McDonald's of the Greater Philadelphia Region Owner/Operator Association. "Our goal was to bring our customer's favorite game to life, and bring an added level of excitement and fun to the area."
On April 12, McDonald's will continue the excitement at Citizens Bank Park in celebration of McDonald's T-Shirt Night. McDonald's will be giving away $15,000 in free SEPTA rides from the City Hall Station and $3,000 in free parking to McDonald's Mobile App users, allowing fans to "take a ride" on SEPTA or enjoy "free parking" – both elements of the Monopoly board game.
