Not doing so hot with the Pennsylvania or New Jersey state lotteries? Maybe it's time to play a game of Monopoly.
To celebrate its 80th anniversary in France, Hasbro is replacing its iconic game money and stuffing 80 Monopoly sets with real cash -- euros in this case.
According to Agence France-Presse:
Only one set will land the major jackpot, in which every
game note is replaced by real money - for a total windfall of 20,580 euros
Hasbro is marking 30,000 of the 500,000 Monopoly sets it sells annually in France with a sticker indicating they might contain the real money.
