Can I sue McDonald's for false advertising?

Asked 9 months ago - Virginia Beach, VA

During the Monopoly game at McDonald's, they are advertising 1 in 4 game pieces win granted some of the pieces are instant win food prizes. I got 3 food items with 2 game pieces each, and not one of them was a winner. (0/6 ) That's clearly false advertising. Just curious how good a case it is.
