If you’ve eaten at the fast-food restaurant with the Golden Arches, addictive fries, and nightmare clown mascot, dollars to McNuggets you’ve played at least one “peel and win” game. It may have even been Monopoly themed. Did you know that from the years 1989 to 2001, such games amounted to $24 million dollars worth of fraud on McDonald’s part? In that time, there were almost no legitimate winners of the big contest, and in one case, the prize winners were part of a conspiracy that’s almost reminiscent of the Lufthansa heist.

From executive producer Mark Wahlberg comes a new documentary series that dives deep into this fraud, uncovering more than you ever thought you knew about harmless fast-food sweepstakes. 

Here’s everything you need to know to watch McMillions.
