Media has become a mass communication tool, placed at the center of our society. Today, everything that we do ends up in the media – whether it’s through mainstream, such as newspapers, or just social networking, such as Twitter. Regardless of the media method, everyone’s using media to learn and be aware of important information or events. Although the media is successful in informing people, it is also important to notice its flaws. Due to many media companies competing for the most efficient (and watched) news coverage, it often becomes a race to see who can deliver the information to the public the quickest. As a result, news teams are constantly making mistakes and delivering misinformation every day through media. Although the occasional slip up may not seem like a big deal, it has single handedly affected the lives of many people that have been in the media spot light.

It’s that time of the year again - where McDonald’s Monopoly promotion comes back in full force for the summer as consumers storm the fast food restaurant in hopes of hitting the jackpot and winning the big-ticket prizes. Since 1987, McDonald’s collaboration with Hasbro’s Monopoly has proven to be an enormous marketing success. Over the years, McDonald's customers have shown more frequent consumption during the months of the sweepstakes, and as a result, revenue sky rockets. If you are not familiar with this contest, McDonald's teams up with Monopoly one month every year and puts game pieces on certain foods on the menu. These game pieces are then collected by the customer in hopes of filling the Monopoly board in order to redeem prizes. If you collect all of the necessary properties of the same color, you win a large prize (although there are also smaller prizes). This marketing strategy has shown increasing popularity each year, but what are the actual odds of winning a prize... and what has made this promotion so successful?
