March Madness Contests
March 14, 2011
The Big Dance has some great betting contests and let’s look at a few from some of the leading sportsbooks on the Net today.
Sportsbook.com offers a sweet $14 million Perfect Bracket Contest with $10 million in guaranteed cash prizes. If you pick a perfect bracket picking every right game you will hit the $14 million jackpot. The reason that the prize is $14 million is that Sportsbook.com has been taking action on March Madness for 14 years. They are putting $10 million in a pool if nobody hits on the perfect pool jackpot, which is better than any office pool, by far. To be eligible for the cash prizes you have to make your picks and wager $20 in each round of the Big Dance. For this contest the payout is $5,000 for first place, $3,000 for second place and $2,000 for third place.
BetUS.com has few solid March Madness contests and the main one has to be their $5 million grand prize March Mayhem event. In this contest you will get a cool $5 million if you pick every game correct in the Big Dance. If there is no winner in this contest the person that makes the most correct picks will win a 50” 1080P 3D TV.
Another contest is the $10,000 16-team bracket and you will have to correctly pick all the games from the Sweet 16 to the finals to win the grand prize. If nobody makes all the right picks the person making the most correct picks will get a $250 BetUS casino chip and they also pay out in free BetUS gear and free play from third to fifth place.
BetUS.com also has the $10,000 8-team contest where you will have to correctly pick every game from the Elite 8 to the finals. Much like the 16-team bracket contest second place will get a $250 casino chip and gear and free place for third to fifth place.
To be eligible for these contests you will have to make an initial deposit or a reload deposit of at least $100.
