Week 1 First Round Contest

To kick off March Madness 2021, the first leg of the contest will go live Monday, March 14th after Selection Sunday and close hours before the Frist Round begins.

How does it work? Starting Monday, and ending Thursday morning before the First Four games are played, you will be given the chance to predict the outcome of the First Four games and the First Round at the same time. When you log into the game you will see four cards with eight games each. You will have to predict who will be the First Four winner to advance to each card and then who you think will win each card. The cards are organized into East, West, South, and Midwest.

What is the Prize? The player who guesses everything right has the opportunity to win $5800.00! Each card is worth $200 and if you guess all four then you will win the $5000 Grand Prize as well!

And remember, just because you lost one leg of the contest doesn’t mean that you can’t return and play in the next week. Check the schedule below for the upcoming contest legs below!

Week 2 Sweet 16 Sweepstakes

After signing up or signing in, you will see two cards each with one-half of the Sweet 16 games each. Go into each card and make the predictions for which team you think will win each game and by what point margin. When you make all your selections in a card then click Enter Free Play

So for example, if you think Loyola will beat Oregon State by 3 points then click Loyola 1-4. If you can make all the correct predictions for one card then you will become eligible to win $200! If you make correct predictions on all cards then you will be eligible to win the $5k as well! Good luck!

This Pool Will Remain Open Until a Few Hours Prior to the First Sweet 16 Games!
