How to Play
Contestants must pick the winners of the 64 games in the 2016 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Basketball Championship Tournament. Points will be awarded for each correct pick. Entries must be completed online before the contest deadline on Thursday, March 17th, 2016. Once the bracket has been submitted, it is final.*Bracket picks cannot be changed once the bracket has been submitted. Games will be graded and the bracket updated at the end of each round.
Prizes are awarded based on point totals earned according to the following chart:
|Regionals – The Sweet 16||4pts|
|Regionals – The Elite 8||6pts|
|National Semi-Finals – The Final Four||8pts|
Players will be able to check their point totals by logging into their accounts. Point totals will be updated after every round. Points are non-transferable.
Prizes will be determined by correct picks in the bracket and the cumulative total of points scored by each contestant. In the event of a tie, the position winner will be the contestant who most closely predicts the Grand Salami (the combined total amount of points that will be scored in the last three games – i.e. both games of The Final Four on April 2th, 2016, plus the National Championship Game on April 4th, 2016). In the case that more than one contestant correctly predicts the Grand Salami, the winner will be determined by the earlier entry date and time. Only one winner per position will be allowed.
Winners will be notified by E-mail. It is the sole responsibility of the entrant to keep his/her E-mail information in their account up-to-date and accurate. If after thirty (30) calendar days the winner fails to acknowledge their prize, their winning entry will be forfeited.
Cash prizes awarded are in US dollars or currency equivalent.

Potential Grand Prize Winner:
One (1) grand prize will be awarded to an eligible Entrant only if he/she accurately predicts the outcome of all 64 games in the Tournament ("Perfect Bracket"). The Grand Prize (as hereinafter defined) will only be awarded if an eligible entrant submits a Perfect Bracket (the "Grand Prize Winner"). If more than one (1) eligible Entrant submits a Perfect Bracket and each is confirmed as a Grand Prize Winner, the Grand Prize will be equally divided among the Challenge's Grand Prize Winners, with each Grand Prize Winner entitled to the Grand Prize Winner's proportionate share of the Grand Prize regardless of the whether the Grand Prize Winner elects the Annual Payment Option (defined below) or the One-Time Payment Option (defined below). For example, if there are two (2) Grand Prize Winners, each Grand Prize Winner will be entitled to elect either 50% of the Annual Payment Option or 50% of the One-Time Payment Option.
IF NO ELIGIBLE ENTRANT SUBMITS A PERFECT BRACKET, THE GRAND PRIZE WILL NOT BE AWARDED.
Grand Prize: The grand prize ("Grand Prize") will consist of one million dollars ($1,000,000) USD, payable over the course of ten (10) years in ten (10) equal annual installments of $100,000 ("Annual Payment Option"). The Grand Prize Winner has the option, in the Grand Prize Winner's sole discretion, to elect to receive a one-time payment of $500,000 ("One-Time Payment Option") instead of the 10 equal annual installments of $100,000.
THE GRAND PRIZE WILL NOT BE AWARDED IF NO ELIGIBLE ENTRANT SUBMITS A PERFECT BRACKET.
Prize Conditions: LIMIT ONE PRIZE PER ENTRANT. A Grand Prize Winner is not eligible to win a First Prize.
