09 March 2021
Win the Top Prize of $1 million!
DraftKings have always been for their fabulous Championship Series events, but they seem to have lifted their flagship promotion to the next level in 2021.
They’ve announced more than 100 multi-million prize-pool tournaments for this year. One of the most attractive and appealing to the crowd is the upcoming $2 million March Mania Bracket Challenge.
Are you good at predicting the main NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament results? If you can successfully predict more outcomes than anyone else in this year’s bracket, you will become a millionaire! Stay tuned to learn everything about the March Madness 2021 Bracket Challenge edition.
How it works?
First of all, we would like to mention several important rules about this year’s March Mania Bracket Challenge. It is only available to customers in the following states:
|Eligible States: NJ, CO, TN, WV, NH|
|Start Date: February 23rd, 2021|
|End Date: March 19th, 2021|
|Top Prize: $1 million|
Since NJ law forbids wagering on college teams from that state, you will not be able to back them in the bracket challenge. If any New Jersey team makes the final tournament, the computer will automatically select their opponents for you.
To qualify for the promotion, you need to pay a $100 fee. You can join the Championship Series Millionaire Bracket from February 23rd, 2021 to the tip-off of the first NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament game, scheduled for March 19th, 2021.
All contestants will have an opportunity to predict the winners of all March Madness Tournament games. You will earn 0 points for unpicked matches and for those you miss. The points are accrued in the following fashion:
- A Winning Pick in the 1st Round – 10 Points
- A Winning Pick in the 2nd Round – 20 Points
- A Winning Pick in the Sweet 16 Round – 40 Points
- A Winning Pick in the Elite 8 Round – 80 Points
- A Winning Pick in the Final 4 Round – 160 Points
- A Winning Pick in the Championship Game – 320 Points
The top 1500 players on the leaderboard will earn prizes. There is a guaranteed $2 million prize pool (regardless of the number of entries), but it will be bigger if the collected prize pool exceeds the guaranteed amount. The prize structure will remain unchanged, though.
The winner of the leaderboard will receive 50% of the prize pool (at least $1 million), the second place will get 25%, the third position 12.50%, etc.). The least-paid spots are from 660th to 1500th and they will receive 0.2% of the total prize pool.
