McDonald's PLAY Atari Scratch N’ Win Contest from 1982!


One of my favorite fast food promotions that I missed out on was McDonald’s PLAY Atari Scratch N’ Win contest from 1982. For a few months back in 1982 you could get these awesome scratch off game pieces that were based on Atari games with the purchase of large sandwiches and other menu items. It is my understanding that the way the Atari scratch off games worked was that you had to find a pair of matching food or prizes before revealing a zap spot. Based on the commercials, prizes varied from Atari 2600 Video Computer Systems to a friggin’ cabaret Centipede cabinet!

While the contest may be long gone, some wonderful people have uploaded the commercials promoting McDonald’s PLAY Atari Scratch N’ Win contest to youtube. So without further ado, join us as we "taste the thrill of Atari at McDonald’s" through these four retro commercials!
