New This Week:


  1. Went to McDonald’s twice in two days and neither had game pieces even though it started yesterday.Very disappointed with them.

  2. Anyone else having troubles actually scratching the scracth off pieces? I can’t play since I have all these pieces I can’t even scratch off the stuff to play!

  3. Had the same problem today, instead of silver scratching off the paper just tears.

  4. Still no game pieces on March 21 in Lockport, NY. What gives?

  5. Ky player says

    having the same problem with the game pieces… even if scratching gently the paper tears away and can’t read what was under the silver

  6. NYCMartini says

    I sent away for a game piece and it took 2 weeks to come back.

  7. NYCMartini says

    I did however win 40MCR points

  8. Want to beat the system? All you need is a strong light and a magnafying glass. Simply hold the game piece over the light, and by using the magnifying glass you will find that three of the balls have three lines of red text. However there will be one ball with only one line of text. It may not be legible, yet if there is only one line of text, that’s the winning ball. I wish you all “luck”!

  9. Delano Jennings says

    cant find code request. started today. also the coke one that started yesterday didnt work when i tried to enter the codes i requested
