This McDonald's Game Offers Free Food As Rewards

Android/iOS: If you're going to spend time playing games, the option of scoring free food is always nice. Drop Into Maccas's is a McDonald's-sponsored game that offers free menu items if you can beat the daily target score.

As the name suggests, there's a skydiving theme to the app. McDonald's recently said it wanted to amp up its mobile app development, and I guess this is proof. The free food offers runs through until 23 December, and you have to claim your food (which has a maximum value of $3) within 24 hours.

    Seems no stone has been left unturned here. Allowing Ronald to track my every move and call me at 3 in the morning all for a free double beef and bacon does not make sense to me.

    NO THANKS!

      Then don't put your phone number in, its not mandatory.

    I got 100 coins the first time i played it on wednesday, but i have NFI what that would have got me.

    The coins are used for in game items- power ups, headgear that nets you an extra hit before dying, and costumes, which seem to be purely cosmetic. If you win them in the app, just redeem them wherever you are- it seems that there is a glitch where it tells you to go to you nearest store to get them, but if you swipe to redeem anyway, it will add them to your total.

    You can open the menu, select 'redeem code' and enter some of these:

    BORED
    SPIKE
    WHATEVS
    AHHHH
    HEAT
    OUCH
    EAGLEEYE
    OFFICIALNOOB
    YUMYUM
    WANTED
    MELONHEADPRO
    KEVSBLIMP

    Codes are not case sensitive.

    These codes will get you free coins, if you're interested. Quite a lot of them, actually. The only thing is that you have to incrementally upgrade power ups and items, you can't buy the best stuff first, even if you have the dough.

    From playing it a little bit, I can say that getting a 'mystery prize' seems to be a bit of a lucky dip- I got a soft serve from mine. Maybe it can give you more lucrative items too?

    *Edit for clarity
    *2nd edit for more codes
