Four diners accidentally win 100,000 euros jackpots at a McDonald & # 39; s Monopoly game within hours after a software error in Germany meant that extra prizes were made available

  • A McDonald & # 39; s Monopoly app paid twice as much after an error from IT staff
  • The game had to pay out up to £ 85,000 to just two players
  • But within a few hours after the app went live, it was claimed by four people
  • Mistake was traced by developers in the app's testing phase, local media said

Four diners accidentally won 100,000 euros jackpots on a McDonald & # 39; s Monopoly game after a software error in Germany made extra prizes available.

McDonald & # 39; s Deutschland had a promotional app that allowed two customers to take home up to 100,000 euros (£ 85,000), but four people had won the jackpot in just a few hours.

The error happened after the app's testers left the program open for too long, local media reported.

This meant that in a shorter time more prizes were available than planned, just after the app went online.

McDonald & # 39; s discovered the error after a few hours, but it was too late right now and they were 200,000 (£ 170,000) out of pocket.

McDonald & # 39; s, however, decided that they would continue with the game and added two more jackpots so that the competition could continue.

The company claimed that they would write off the money as training money and said the prizes would be paid out.

McDonald & # 39; s responded to a story from the German newspaper Bild on Twitter and said: & # 39; We just meant it good for all of you & # 39;

A spokesperson for McDonald & # 39; s said: & # 39; s colleagues working on this, both internally and our service partners, had been destroyed by the error and therefore had a few sleepless nights. & # 39;

On Twitter, McDonald & # 39; s Germany responded with a good mood and placed: & # 39; We just meant it good for all of you. & # 39;

In another tweet they shared a photo of P. Diddy throwing money around with the caption: & # 39; Monopoly starts: Meanwhile in McDonald's IT # 39; s. & # 39;
