HOW TO PLAY:

Full Bracket Game

In the "Full Bracket" game, you pick the winner of each game of each round of the tournament prior to the start of the first full round of the tournament (the round of 64 teams) (hereafter referred to as the "First Round").

Select the team that you predict will win each game of the Men's College Basketball Tournament and enter the score for the designated tie-breaker game. You may enter your picks until fifteen (15) minutes before the start of the first game of the First Round of the tournament. You will not be required to pick the winners of the "First Four" play-in games. Limit one (1) entry per person.

Each round of the tournament is worth up to 64 points. There are 6 rounds in the tournament worth up to 384 points. You will receive 2 points for each First Round game you pick correctly. You will receive 4 points for each Second Round game you pick correctly. You will receive 8 points for each Third Round game you pick correctly. You will receive 16 points for each Fourth Round game you pick correctly. You will receive 32 points for each Fifth Round game you pick correctly. You will receive 64 points for picking the winner of the Championship game. If a game is canceled, forfeited, or indefinitely suspended for any reason, that game shall not count for any participant and scores will be computed as if the game did not exist.

The participant with the highest score for each round will be deemed the round winner, subject to verification. The participant with the highest total score for all rounds combined will be deemed the Full Bracket Grand Prize winner, subject to verification of eligibility.

In the event of a tie for the highest score in any round, the winner for the round will be randomly selected from among the tied participants.

In the event of a tie for the highest overall score, the "Score Approximation Formula" outlined below will be used to determine the Grand Prize winner.

Score Approximation Formula:

Subtract what the participant chose as the score for the winning team from the actual winning team's score and square this value.
Subtract what the participant chose as the score for the losing team from the actual losing team's score and squares this value.
Add the value from 1 and 2 above together to get the participant's "score approximation."
The tied participant with the lowest "Score Approximation" will be deemed the winner.

If there are still ties, the ties will be broken based on the following criteria in this order:

The most points earned in the Fifth Round.
The most points earned in the Fourth Round.
The most points earned in the Third Round.
The most points earned in the Second Round.
The most points earned in the First Round.
If there is still a tie, the winner will be randomly selected from the remaining tied players.
WINNER NOTIFICATION:

Winners will be notified by email. All posted results are unofficial until winners are verified. If a winner does not respond within seven (7) days of the initial notification email, the prize will be forfeited and awarded to the next highest scoring participant.
