A worker at MCDONALD has revealed that employees made an apparent attempt to destroy millions of pounds worth of Monopoly stickers to prevent customers from taking them out of the trash.
A shocking TikTok video captured employees dunking boxes in the sink behind closed doors.
Workers laugh and wash hundreds of burger packages in an apparent attempt to drop the stickers.
The video was shared online with the caption: “What do we have to do with the extra boxes on the last day of Monopoly so that no one goes through the cans and takes all the Monopoly stickers.”
The clip shows workers putting the wrapper into the sink before removing the dirty cardboard.
The waste is then dumped into large bin bags, discouraging anyone from trying to pull out the Monopoly sticker for prize money without buying a burger.
The promotion is based on a system of stickers affixed to either McDonald’s drink or food purchases, which contain two or three different items.
After peeling these off, diners receive a description written on the back of either an instant prize, a Monopoly “property” or an online code that can be entered to increase their chances of winning something.
Up for grabs is a Mayfair sticker, of which there are only four and where the lucky diner will receive a £100,000 cash prize; 30 stickers for Ibiza villa getaway; 157 Luxury Spa Dates; 750 stickers for the phone of your choice and more.
Monopoly of 2021 launched on August 25 and ends today, making TikTok’s sticker-binning video timely.
The fast food chain says it has given “millions of prizes” to “millions of people” in the UK over the years.
“In 2018, 8,006,175 prizes were claimed, including 6 Mini Coopers, three £100k prizes, two £25k prizes and one Universal Holiday.”

And in one accident, the food chain accidentally exposed a monopoly database — but it claimed no customer data or winning numbers were at risk.
An error caused usernames and passwords for the practice database to be sent in emails to winning customers.
And between 1989 and 2001, a man named Jerry Jacobson masterminded a scandal that manipulated the results of McDonald’s monopoly.
The hit documentary McMillion$, produced by Mark Wahlberg, tells the story of how he was able to stay away from crime for more than a decade and grab $24M.
According to HBO: “The series unravels the twisted threads of fast-food fraud through exclusive first-hand accounts and archival footage of FBI agents who brought down the gaming scandal.”
It also reveals how some corporate executives of the fast food chain were also duped and the lawyers working in the case and the ineligible awardees who have benefited from the scheme.
