This riddle describes the

Monopoly board game.

Clue 1: Since 1935...

In 1935 Monopoly was sold by Parker Brothers and a patent issued to Charles Darrow. The Landlord's Game was similar and created by Lizzie Magie in 1903.

Clue 2: An uncle always in

Rich Uncle Pennybags is the mascot.

Clue 3: Some references about the invisible hand

A reference to Adam Smith's phrase that describe benefits of individual self-interested actions in a free market economy, and is at odds with a monopoly.

Clue 4: Only one will get it...

In a monopoly [Greek: single sell] one party has exclusive control over a product or service.

Clue 5: But luck is the real protagonist

Rolling dice and drawing cards means Monopoly is a game of luck as well as skill.

Title: Only for a few people

The game of Monopoly is for two to eight players.

Could you be the...

one dollar bill...

whose backside was designed in 1935

Uncle : this one I don't have... May the "uncle" be G. Washington?

THe invisible hand : one someone says that the Eye of Providence is also a symbol of freemasonry.

One will get it : one dollar

Luck is the real protagonist: another one I don't get... maybe part of an american expression ?

And the title "only for a few people" : because it's only for americans?
