In 2001, FBI Agent Doug Mathews receives an anonymous tip speaking of a con surrounding the much-beloved McDonald's Monopoly game and a mysterious mastermind behind it all. With the help of a McDonald's employee, Agent Mathews proposes an unorthodox undercover sting that will test nerves and lead to an early breakthrough in what promises to be a bizarre but unforgettable case.
Hoping to unmask "Uncle Jerry," the FBI investigates two figures they believe are connected to the scam. The first, Jerome "Jerry" Jacobson, is a former cop working security for Simon Marketing, the company hired to run the McDonald's Monopoly game. The second, Gennaro "Jerry" Colombo, hails from a notorious East Coast mob family and is no stranger to unsavory activities.
Frank Colombo, the brother of Gennaro "Jerry" Colombo, reveals the inner workings of the scam. Under the pretense of organizing a reunion for past winners, the undercover FBI video crew interviews Gloria Brown, a single mom and million-dollar "winner" in South Carolina, who tries to obscure the origins of her winning game ticket.
1998: A car accident lands Gennaro "Jerry" Colombo in the ICU, leading Jerome "Jerry" Jacobson to scout for new recruiters. With "Operation: Final Answer" gaining speed, the FBI gathers intel on "Uncle Jerry's" middlemen and ends up tailing Dwight to the airport, where they worry a family confrontation may turn violent.
The FBI intercepts a call with "Uncle Jerry" that leads them to capture crucial evidence of a game piece exchange. With the latest Monopoly game drawing to an end, the FBI works overtime to launch a coordinated cross-country day of indictments, though a last-minute technical error threatens to upend their carefully-laid plans.
As the trial nears, many of the defendants take plea deals, but George Chandler and others try to prove their innocence. When a previously uncooperative Jerome "Jerry" Jacobson takes the stand, the remaining details of the scheme are disclosed. Almost twenty years later, those involved reflect on what they learned, their regrets and the ripple effects of one man's greed.
