OAK BROOK, Ill. (AP) — McDonald's says its third quarter profit rose 5 percent, as the world's biggest hamburger chain benefited from a Monopoly promotion in the U.S. and strength in the U.K. and Russia.

The company says it earned $1.52 billion, or $1.52 per share, for the quarter ended Sept. 30. That compares with $1.46 billion, or $1.43 per share, last year. Analysts expected $1.51 per share.

Revenue rose 2 percent to $7.32 billion from $7.15 billion last year. Analysts expected $7.33 billion.

McDonald's, based in Oak Brook, Ill., says revenue in stores open at least 13 months rose 0.9 percent, including a 0.7 percent rise in the U.S. and a 0.2 percent rise in Europe.

McDonald's has more than 34,000 locations around the world.

Shares fell $1.40 to $93.80 in premarket trading.
