Buying property, being sent to jail and having a huge row with the banker – we can confirm Monopoly is nothing like our every day life in Dubai, but Giant Monopoly has become a popular pop-up at Dubai malls.
Majid Al Futtaim has brought its huge Monopoly game to Mall of the Emirates, City Centre Deira and City Centre Mirdif with new challenges and even more chances to win.
Until Monday, 14th May, shoppers at Mall of the Emirates and City Centre Mirdif could win AED 100,000, with mall gift cards and instant prizes up for grabs at City Centre Deira until 15th May.
To win the big prize, players need to spend AED 600 at Mall of the Emirates or AED 500 at City Centre Mirdif. Anyone who spends at least AED 300 can exchange their receipts for a token at the malls’ customer service desks. Each shopper can play up to four times per day from 12pm-10pm on weekdays and 12pm-11.30pm on weekends.
True to the original board game, the year’s Smile edition of Monopoly has a few new additions. Clowns and hilarious characters will keep everyone entertained while they wait to play, a new social media element means players could be asked to take a selfie to score more points and players must collect smile points to be crowned winners. Careful though – one wrong roll of the dice and you end up in jail!
Mall of the Emirates until 14th May and City Centre Mirdif and City Centre Deira until 15th May. www.majidalfuttaim.com
