Ross singled out the most elusive property in each of the winning combinations, and there are some eye-boggling numbers involved. Looking at the lowest-stakes prize ($50), you only need Baltic Avenue and Mediterranean Avenue to score. But while Baltic Avenue has a very nice 1 in 11 shot, Mediterranean posts odds of 1 in 651,842. That means you'd need at least 451,666 plays for a decent chance at winning. We could go through the rest, but just to make you depressed, let's go straight to the biggest prize: $1 million. To unlock that cash, you need to pick up Park Place (odds: 1 in 11) and Boardwalk (odds: 1 in 651,841,628). Which requires at least 451,822,158 McNugget purchases.
If you're serious about numbers, you can gather even more intel through Ross's entire post. Just don't get any ideas about counting stamps -- that bouncer Grimace is always watching.
