Monopoly game ends with no big winners

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Consumers have been peeling, sticking and saving game pieces for weeks, but the grocery store monopoly game is now officially over. 

What about the big-dollar price? Well, there still may be winner, but don't bet on it. 

Customers could collect game pieces by shopping at Vons and then matching pieces to spots on a game board. The top prize was one-million-dollars cash, but players needed eight specific pieces. 

For most players, getting the first seven pieces was pretty easy, but the odds of getting the winning piece were 450-million-to-one. 

The game officially ended on Tuesday, and so far, no one has claimed the million dollar prize. The next best item on the board was a $500,000 vacation home. 

Three players won a $50,000 home makeover, but none of those individuals live in San Diego County. 

The biggest winners in San Diego were Matthew, who won a grill and groceries worth $2,500. Sherri in Vista won $1,000-cash, and Maria in Poway won a$500-spa treatment. 

The biggest winner on Thursday was Dianne George who had an instant win ticket for salsa and chocolate squares. 

Players have until May 25th to claim their prize and it must be done in person.
