As the leaves of trees start to fall and many North Americans prepare for the cool autumn weather, the time for the annual McDonald's Monopoly contest also approaches, making this the perfect time to explore the 'Peelin' Lucky' infographic.

Created by McDonald's and Posterous, the illustrated chart compares the popular board game to the fast food chain's Monopoly prize contest, providing interesting tidbits of info along the way. What surprised me most from the infographic is the fact that McDonald's Monopoly began in 1987 -- before I was even born! Though it's not a sure way of making a living, you might be surprised to find out that the largest McDonald's Monopoly prize offered was a whopping $5 million!
