Why Albertsons Does The Monopoly Game Each Year
They make money. They can afford to give away a couple million dollars worth of prizes, plus some of the prizes go unclaimed. However, the consumer will rush over buying more foods and drinks from their stores and this equals to much more than the total dollar value of the prizes they give away. A lot of people will buy foods and drinks they don’t even need just to get a game piece. It is also important to note that the million dollar cash prize is split into a 30 year annuity, meaning you will only get around $33k per year for 30 years and that is not including taxes. The odds are about the same for the dream home as well, the upside with that is you don’t need to wait 30 years to have your full prize in hand.

The thing about Monopoly is you might get all the pieces for a specific prize and you are only missing one piece. Well in most cases the pieces you have will have the common pieces, and the piece your missing is the rare piece. The rare pieces are not easy to get either.
