MERIDIAN — If you shop at Albertsons, you probably know about their Monopoly game. Well on Tuesday, someone won a big prize.

10k winnerKandi Decker of Meridian claiming her prize

Most prizes are less than $100, but Kandi Decker from Meridian took home a check for $10,000.

“We’ve been playing the game, our kids have a lot of fun collecting the pieces and putting them on the board, and it was actually our 8-year-old – he had been going through it and he was like, ‘Mommy you just won a $10,000 Jet Ski,’ ” Decker said. “And we didn’t believe him.”

The deckers have five children and plan on putting the money toward a new minivan.

    I have a rare 145G (jetski) if anyone wants to share.
    I’ve been playing this since the beginning and have 8 boards filled (without rares).

  3. Linda 24/04/2015 at 12:33 pm

    Randy, I can not tell you how many 145G chits I have thrown away. I’m still waiting for 142G & 145G.
    Guess it just means where in the US you are located.

  4. Linda 24/04/2015 at 1:30 pm

    I am waiting for 142G & 146G.

  5. James 24/04/2015 at 2:43 pm

    I like the 145G (jetski) but the 142G is the one that’s the hardest to find. I have many of tickets and willing to trade or match if interested. Contact me @ JP949(

    What’s up with Boise getting ALL THE LOVE?

    This year someone wins the jetski…and in 2012 if I read it right…someone won the $1,000,000 prize… Frustrated in Boulder City, NV!!

    Your list is IDENTICAL to mine. Funny, huh?

  10. Kelly Walker 13/05/2015 at 6:35 pm

    I have the semi-rare 126 D ticket which I will take just about any offer on. E-mail me at—– I also have all other tickets except the rare/semi-rare in all other categories… Years of playing, and never even the smallest prize. Think I’m done.

    I am dissapointed that the sweepstake entry codes that I won with are all for “Instant Winner 2 bonus monopoly game tickets. They are out of tickets in my area and I should have a total of 30 tickets coming to me. I live in Meridian Idaho and all of our stores are out of tickets. Is Albertsons going to honor this somehow? P.S. I have instantly won $2 and $5 on the board several years ago. I have to say I like the “earn dishes or pots and pans” better then this

  12. Darlene B 20/05/2015 at 9:15 am

    Can I still enter codes, I received several tickets 2 days ago and can’t find where I enter codes???

  13. Liza 23/05/2015 at 4:55 pm

    I am surprised what Darlene is saying, because from May 19, here in Fort worth stores, they don’t give tickets anymore. Of course they say, they gave what they had. I have many instant winner and I also have some codes from the website with won tickets, but according to the rules, the stores don’t give more tickets.
    I have two semi-rare, 110B and 145G and I had the hope to get more tickets, but is not possible right now. Anyway, it is very difficult to win, I got many, many tickets in the past days, and the only I got was two semi-rare pieces, that’s it.

      Hi Darlene, I am sorry to hear of your frustration with this promotion. We will keep your comments in mind for future promotions. Even though the stores are no longer giving out tickets, there is a chance for the second chance drawing that will take place as well. I hope you have a great weekend! ~Kiersta

    Congrats on the 10k win! I’m sure that was a very pleasant surprise! I’m happy for you and pray for your continued prosperity. No worries everyone, there’s plenty to go around!
