Longing for more true crime content in your life? Acclaimed HBO docu-series McMillion$ will be right up your alley. The show chronicles the incredible true story of the $24 million McDonald's Monopoly game fraud over the course of six incredible episodes.
When is McMillion$ coming out?
McMillion$ premiered back in February in the US. In Australia, all episodes of the docu-series will be available to stream on BINGE starting on 28 June 2020.
What's McMillion$ about?
The story revolves around a fascinating case involving drugs, greed, revenge and Ronald McDonald.
From 1989 to 2001, a criminal mastermind named Uncle Jerry defrauded the popular McDonald's Monopoly promotional game of millions of dollars in prize money. His con was simple – by stealing valuable game pieces from McDonald's, Jerry was able to hand-select winners, hoodwink the authorities and share the ill-gotten gains.
However, what started as a small scam eventually expanded to include ex-cons with ties to the mafia and unsuspecting co-conspirators, until an anonymous tip to the FBI led to an investigation. It's a stranger-than-fiction true story that will grab you from episode one.
Is McMillion$ any good?
Yes. The documentary series currently has an 89% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
"McMillion$ has an immediate advantage in that the real people involved in the story are larger-than-life characters," one critic writes.
