March Madness Contest 2013





Update 4/9/2013:

That's all, folks! March Madness is over for another year!

What a tournament it’s been – absolutely crazy! If your bracket didn’t fare well, don’t feel too bad… Mine did terrible too.

That said, our three winners all picked Louisville as the overall champions. Congratulations to Zach Bleile, Ben Berry and Allison Jones. Our sweepstakes winner was randomly selected as Christina Trujillo.

I hope that everyone had fun taking part in our contest. Thank you for getting involved - it would have been nothing without you.

If you haven’t already liked us on Facebook then please do so - we’re going to be doing more contests again in the near future and we’d love for you to take part once more.

Have a great day,



Update 4/8/2013:


On Saturday night, Louisville beat Wichita State 72 to 68 – and Michigan won again Syracuse 61 to 56. Tonight, Louisville and Michigan go head-to-head in Atlanta to determine the Champion of the 2013 NCAA Men’s College Basketball Tournament.


If your picks haven’t put you within a shot of finishing in the top three spots of our bracket contest (you can check out the full leaderboard here) you could still be in with a shot of claiming a prize regardless. There is still time left to earn multiple entries in our March Madness Sweepstakes Contest to be enter into a drawing for an Apple TV. Simply enter via the widget immediately below and follow the on-screen instructions. The more entries you earn before the deadline, the great your chance of being selected as the winner. Good luck – and enjoy the game tonight!



Update 4/5/2013:

It's the Final Four games this weekend: Louisville v Wichita State, and Michigan v Syracuse. If you didn't pick any of them to get this far, then don't worry - you could still win a prize by entering our March Madness Sweepstakes above ^. We're also giving away a spot prize over on our Facebook this afternoon.


Update 4/1/2013:


So Louisville, Wichita State, Michigan, and Syracuse are the Final Four. That means there’s only a few people left who could potentially win our bracket contest. Right now, TheBestBrownsFan is sitting pretty in first place on a current score of 43 points – and a potential score of 45 points based on his predictions.


However - BenBerry, Jones28, and DBOSS66 all have a potential of 43 points, which means that depending on how the rest of the games play out, they could end up tying with TheBestBrownsFan for first place. Currently, BenBerry, Dnickel, and Jones28 are all tied for second place on 41 points each, and DBOSS66, devonwtxus, Heather, and thebyrdman are all tied for third place on 40 points each. See the full leaderboard here.


Remember – there is still time to earn more entries in our sweepstakes for your chance to win an Apple TV regardless of how you’re doing in our bracket contest. Just follow the instructions above ^
