1.2.     The following are not eligible to participate in the Promotion:

(a)     any person who is at any time during the Promotion an employee (or an immediate family member of any such employee) of McDonald’s Restaurants of Ireland Limited (referred to in these Rules as the Promoter” or McDonald’s”) or any of its franchisees, subsidiaries, agents and advisors,

(b)    any person who is at any time during the Promotion an employee (or an immediate family member of any such employee) of any company responsible for redemption of prizes or for supplying prizes for the Promotion or any of their respective subsidiaries, agents and advisors,

(c)     other persons assisting with this Promotion,

(d)    any person not being an individual person,

(e)    any syndicate or collection of persons acting in concert,

(f)      any person entering via an agent, or using the services of or which is an entity carrying on the business of entering (or advising on entering) prize promotions, and

(g)     any person using any application or process to submit an entry on that person’s behalf automatically or by proxy.



2.1.     The Promotion is scheduled to take place between 09:00:00 on 13th March 2024 and 23:59:59 on 16th April 2024 (inclusive) (the “Promotion Period”) at participating McDonald’s restaurants located in the Republic of Ireland (each a “participating McDonald’s restaurant”).

2.2.     Opening hours and services are variable and subject to change – any concern as to whether the Promotion is available and/or if Cold Cups will be served at a specific time, should be checked with the customer’s selected restaurant before ordering or travelling.

2.3.     Any supervening circumstance beyond McDonald’s control which causes McDonald’s to exercise its rights in Section 7 may include McDonald’s curtailing, deferring and/or extending any scheduled period for entering any game, claiming any prize and/or completing any prize-fulfilment process referred to in these Rules at any time (including, without limit, for the purpose of issuing stocks of on-pack labels incorporating the Promotion entry codes on Game Pieces) which would otherwise remain undistributed at the end of the Promotion or for enabling originally estimated volumes of game-entries to be made).  



3.1.     Game Pieces:

(a)     How To Obtain a Game Piece - Whilst stocks of Promotion packaging at participating McDonald’s restaurants last, customers can obtain a Promotion Game Piece Code from an on-pack label (“Game Piece”) on the purchase of any of the following medium (0.4L) or large (0.5L) drinks affixed to a promotional cold cup (“Cold Cup”):

  •        Coca-Cola® Zero Sugar
    •        Diet Coke®
    •        Sprite® Zero
    •        Coca-Cola® Classic
    •        Fanta® Orange
    •        Chocolate Milkshake
    •        Strawberry Milkshake
    •        Vanilla Milkshake

Please note the promotional menu item ‘Shamrock Shake’ will not be included in the Promotion.

Carefully remove the Game Piece from the packaging by peeling back where indicated on the Cold Cup. If a Game Piece is already damaged when you receive it in-restaurant, you must immediately notify a member of McDonalds staff (“Crew Member”).

Please note not all qualifying drinks are served in every McDonald’s restaurant and restaurants may (with or without notice) have to limit or otherwise vary their range of qualifying drinks, awards of Game Pieces, serving hours and/or purchasing-channels, due to the direct or indirect impact on McDonald’s of supervening events beyond its control.

(b)    Delivery Orders – Please note that supply of Game Pieces is always subject to availability. Orders made remotely via delivery companies (UberEats, JustEat and Deliveroo) do not and cannot guarantee availability of Game Pieces. Real-time availability of promotional drink cups bearing a Game Piece can only be checked in-person at a restaurant. As a result, a customer wishing to obtain a Game Piece should visit a participating McDonald’s restaurant and check availability with a Crew Member before placing an order in-person.

(c)     Volume of Game Pieces – McDonald’s has produced a total volume of Game Pieces across the 2 types of Cold Cup sizes, which McDonald’s considers reasonably likely to satisfy estimated demand for Game Pieces during the Promotion. Should demand across the different Cold Cup sizes prove to be inconsistent, then Game Pieces may run out prior to the end of the Promotion for one Cold Cup size, whilst remaining undistributed at the end of the Promotion for another Cold Cup size and that situation will change from restaurant to restaurant. As a result, customers wishing to obtain Game Pieces towards the end of the Promotion should check with a Crew Member at the customer’s selected restaurant which Cold Cups are most likely still to be supplied with Game Pieces, before placing an order.

(d)    McDonald’s Fair Ordering Policy – This will apply over the scheduled duration of the Promotion to assist McDonald’s to prevent inconsistent or premature depletion during the scheduled period of the Promotion of stocks of Game Pieces across one or more of the Cold Cups. Steps may be taken to apply a restaurant-wide maximum limit on numbers of Game Pieces per order and/or a specific restriction against any order which does not appear to restaurant-servers or managers (in their discretion) to be primarily for the purposes of consumption by the persons ordering and others in their parties. Please view the news page of the McDonald’s App or website at during the Promotion to check for any announcements about implementation of the Fair Ordering Policy.


3.2.     Play in App

(a)    Participation in the Promotion, including initiation and storage of selected prize claims, require prior registration for the Promotion via the McDonald’s App (“McDonalds App”) in order to create an account with a digital location personal to each registrant (“Winning Sips Wallet”).

(b)    To create a Winning Sips Wallet a customer must successfully download an up-to-date version of the McDonald’s App on to a compatible smartphone or other device and register for a McDonald’s App account (“Account”). The email address used to register this Account must be the same email address that the registrant then uses to play and claim prizes in the Promotion. Once you have created an Account you will be able to access your Winning Sips Wallet on the McDonald’s App by using the same log-in details. If you create more than one Winning Sips Wallet by using a different email address, you will not be able to combine them and may be disqualified from participating in the Promotion if the Promoter determines this to be appropriate (in its discretion).

(c)    The registrant will be required to accept the terms and conditions of use of the McDonald’s App and be aware that the registrant’s data will be held and managed in accordance with the Promoter’s Privacy Statement. It is the registrant’s responsibility to obtain permission in advance from the person who owns or pays for the device and internet-service.


3.3.  Entering your Game Piece Code

(a)   In order to enter the Promotion you must enter your unique 12-character games piece code (“Game Piece Code”) into the McDonald’s App. No Game Piece Code can be used more than once and, once a Game Piece Code has been entered into the McDonald’s App, that Game Piece Code cannot be used to enter the Promotion again.

(b)  Entrants may enter up to a maximum of 8 Game Piece Codes per day into the McDonald’s App. Any Game Piece Code entered after a maximum of 8 Game Piece Codes has been reached will remain valid and can be entered the following day. The entry can be made at any time during the Promotion Period.


3.4.  Answering the skill-based question

(a)   When entering a valid Game Piece Code in accordance with Section 3.3 above, a multiple-choice skill-based question will be randomly allocated to you and displayed onscreen at the code-entry page for the Promotion within the McDonald’s App. You will have one attempt to enter a valid Game Piece Code and answer the question correctly by selecting one of the available multiple-choice answers.

(b)   If you select the incorrect answer then you will not be awarded any prizes or entry to the Prize Draw, and will be directed back to the code-entry page for the Promotion within the McDonald’s App. The Game Piece Code used for this entry will be invalid and cannot be used again. A new unique Game Piece Code will be required for you to enter the Promotion again.

(c)   If you select the correct answer to the multiple-choice skill-based question then you will be awarded a Prize Outcome or entry to the Prize Draw, in the McDonald’s App (each a “Reveal”).


3.5.     Types of Game Play: A Game Piece will feature:

(a)  Upon successfully entering a valid Game Piece Code the answering correctly of the skill testing question and recorded receipt by the Promotion servers of a valid entry (“App Entry”), the Promotion-servers will allocate it to one of the following outcomes (“App Outcome”):

(i)  Prize Outcome, meaning thatthe App Entry has been recorded by the Promotion servers as having been received when there is a winning moment available to be won (“Winning Moment”) which has been generated from the stack of prizes stated in the Prize Pool Table set out at section 4.1 below comprising of cash, food, and merchandise prizes (“Prize Outcome”).

(ii) Prize Draw meaning that the App Entry has been recorded by the Promotion servers as having been received when there are no Winning Moments available to be won and has generated one entry to the prize draw described under the heading ‘Prize Draw’ in the Prize Pool Table of section 4.1 below (the “Prize Draw”). 

Every App Entry will receive notification in the McDonald’s App of one type of Prize Outcome or Prize Draw entry. The Winning Sips Wallet and Offers wallet will track each Prize Outcome or Prize Draw entry allocated to your Account but please keep hold of your Game Piece until the claim verification process is complete and you have received your prize.


3.6.     Using Game Pieces and Security:

(a)     Limit of one prize-claim per Game Piece – No Game Piece or Game Piece Code can be used for more than one prize claim and, once a claim has been submitted, the Game Piece and Game Piece Code relating to that claim may not be used for any other claim.

(b)    Retaining Game Pieces – Please make sure Game Pieces are kept safe and undamaged at all times. The Promoter reserves the right to require the claimant to send the winning Game Piece to the Promoter for verification as a pre-condition to the prize claim being verified. Verification can take place even after notification that an award is being or has been made.

(c)     Keeping Game Piece codes private – Please make sure Game Piece codes are kept private without being revealed to anyone else (other than to the Promoter in accordance with these Rules). Failure to do this may result in the Promoter determining (in its discretion) that the Game Piece Code together with all associated entries and/or prize-claims are void (and the Promoter may take this action irrespective of whether or not there is any evidence to suggest that the failure has resulted or will result in a wrongful prize claim or other action).


3.7.     Distribution and allocation of Game Pieces, Prizes and Outcomes:

(a)     Distribution procedure for Game Pieces – All Game Pieces contain unique Game Piece Codes and have been produced in advance of the Promotion and distributed by the Promoter amongst participating McDonald’s restaurants. Following distribution, participating McDonald’s restaurants make every endeavour to reduce wastage of packaging to a minimum, but in the event this can’t be avoided for food safety or other reasons and promotional packaging has to be destroyed, any corresponding Game Pieces attached to that packaging will also be destroyed without examination.   

(b)    Distribution of Game Pieces and Allocation of Outcomes for the App Game – In the interests of ensuring a more balanced and fair distribution of prizes amongst entrants:

(i)         Game Piece Codes are not linked to any prize, result or outcome. A Prize Outcome is randomly allocated to entrants who enter an App Entry.

(ii)        An entrant who enters an App Entry at a Winning Moment will be awarded a Prize Outcome associated with that specific Winning Moment. If no entries occur at a specific Winning Moment, then the first entrant after that Winning Moment may be awarded the Prize Outcome associated with that Winning Moment.

(iii) Any App Entry which is not allocated to a specific Winning Moment shall be allocated to a Prize Draw entry.

(a)     For all Cash Prizes, it is the winner’s responsibility to make the necessary arrangements to facilitate payment into a suitable licensed bank account in the Republic of Ireland. The Promoter’s offer to pay by bank transfer shall not prevent the Promoter from opting to make the payment by bankers’ draft or personal cheque (posted to the address specified in the prize claim form) at the Promoter’s discretion. The entrant agrees that payment of the prize by bank transfer shall be at the entrant’s risk and that if the transfer is not received in the entrant’s nominated account (as specified in the prize claim form) due to bank error or any other reason that is not directly due to the Promoter then the Promoter shall not be liable.
