The stakes in Monopoly just got higher, at least for 80 lucky buyers in France.
To commemorate the game's 80th anniversary, Monopoly's French manufacturers have replaced its fake notes with real money, according to The Guardian.
Only one set will contain the bonanza, in which the entire bank is been replaced with real bills for a total cash prize of 20,580 euros ($23,268), The Guardian reported.
In addition, 10 game sets will include five real 20-euro notes, two 50-euro notes and one 100-euro note, while another 69 sets will carry five 10-euro notes and five 20-euro notes, the report said.
Hasbro, the game's manufacturer began rolling out the prize sets on Monday in France.
"We wanted to do something unique," Florence Gaillard, brand manager at Hasbro France, told the Guardian.
"When we asked our French customers, they told us they wanted to find real money in their Monopoly boxes."
Hasbro has a less exciting plan for American players, so don't expect a real "money bag" anytime soon.
Instead, Hasbro will offer an 80th anniversary edition game that features a "vintage-style board" to go along with the variety of other formats available.
