Albertson's Monopoly 2018 Rare Game Pieces

 

Albertson's Monopoly (and the same game at other supermarkets around the US) began on February 7, 2018.

In addition to Albertson's, this Monopoly game also exits at Safeway, Pavilions, Carrs, Vons, Randalls, Eagle, Pak .n Save, Tom Thumb, JewelOsco, ACME Markets, Shaw's/Star Market, United Supermarkets, Market Street, Amigos, United Express, Albertsons Market, Lucky (Southern California only) and Super Saver in the states of Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington and Wyoming.

When you shop between February 7 and May 8, 2018, you will receive game tickets each time you shop there, depending upon your total bill and number of items purchased. You will then need to collect 4-8 pieces to win most prizes.

If you're playing Albertson's Monopoly 2018, you shouldn't bother collecting a whole game board of pieces. That's because most of the pieces are VERY common and VERY easy to obtain. The winners will be determined by who finds the RARE game piece for each prize. This site will reveal those rare pieces to you, and you can throw the rest away.

Listed below are the prizes, the odds of finding the rare game piece (with 1 ticket), and the number of total game pieces you need to obtain that prize.

Note that for the seven of the eight largest prizes awarded, you also need a semi-rare game piece, of which the odds of obtaining are 1 in 5000. If you get the semi-rare piece, don't feel special, as there are many thousands of them out there. However, if you get the rare piece, you should be able to buy the semi-rare piece from someone on the internet. Do not overpay for the semi-rare game piece! Some people may try to trick you into splitting the prize. Don't do that. You should be able to get one for $100 or so, as there are THOUSANDS of them, and they will all be worthless except for the very few matched with a rare piece.

You may take a look at this thread on my Vegas Casino Talk forum, where I make a yearly Albertson's Monopoly thread. Feel free to post your trade requests on that forum (you need to register an account and verify e-mail).

Finally, a note about second chance drawings.

You can enter codes online at shopplaywin.com for the second chance drawing.

While this is admittedly tedious and a pain in the butt, there are several very large prizes awarded there, due to the difficulty players have in obtaining the rare AND semi rare game pieces to win a big prize.

Last year, a woman won the $1,000,000 prize in a second chance drawing, and that might very well happen again this year. So keep that in mind.
