Fans of Willy Wonka will know the significance of the golden ticket, but McDonald's has modernized the idea with one McGold Card for one lucky person.

The contest runs from August 10 through August 24 with one possible entry per day. The monetary prize represents the "free food", with McDonald's calculating the cost of "up to two meals per week for fifty (50) years" as the aforementioned cash pot.

The contest ends on August 24.

"The victor of the McGold card will also be awarded with a customized 24-carat golden phone case to mark their membership into the history and mystery of McGold Card lore".

For five decades, McDonald's has handed out only a few of the so-called mythical "McGold" cards. To qualify, you have to download the mobile app, and then place and order and pay for it via the app. Total ARV: $52,350. victor may choose a cash alternative of $1,000 in lieu of $1,000 App credit, added to check. "McDelivery, mobile ordering, and now the chance to win free craveable, delicious McDonald's for life", Professor of McDonald's History and Fry Law Rhonda McDougal claims.

"One potential victor will be selected from among all eligible Entries received for the entire Entry period, in a random prize drawing on or about August 29, 2018, conducted by an independent organization selected by Sponsor".

Despite that criticism, McDonald's appears to be following in the footsteps of similar contests run by both Starbucks and Taco Bell. Big Macs for 50 years? The rules state to, "put only the date you are sending the email in numeric format (mm/dd/yy) in the subject line and your first/last name in the body of the email".
