It’s a Mad, Mad World.  The Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge with Yahoo Sports

By Ken Fuchs, VP/Group Lead Yahoo Sports, Yahoo Finance and Product Partnerships

We felt the rush of the buzzer beaters, Cinderellas and win-or-go-home, but that just wasn’t enough for the annual feast that is the Tourney.  This year, we decided to ratchet up the heat by teaming with Quicken Loans and Warren Buffett to try and give someone a billion dollars.  

If you’re one of the first 15 million people to sign up for the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge with Yahoo Sports by Thursday, March 20 at 1:00 a.m. as an eligible player and predict the winner of every single tournament game, you could be America’s next billionaire.  Don’t worry – even if you blow it on the first game of the tourney, you could still have a shot at $2 million of guaranteed prizes.  See official Challenge Rules for more info.

To help you with those perfect picks, Yahoo Sports will provide up-to-the-second news, data, advice and research from our award-winning Bracketologists Pat Forde, Brad Evans and Jeff Eisenberg. You can get all that, plus fill out your bracket, play against your friends, track the games, follow your school, get instant reactions and enter the Challenge right from the Yahoo Sports apps on iOS and Android Smartphones. While you watch, you can also share your own shining moments by creating Loops with special effects and captions.

Finally – if you really want to be a player – join the Celebrity Bracket Challenge with four All-Stars and former college phenoms (including one national champion) – Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, Paul George or Chris Paul.  They will have pools only in the Celebrity Bracket Challenge on Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick’em, so now is your chance to take on the pros.
Selection Sunday is less than two weeks away, so it’s time to start researching tournament trends, bracket busters and this year’s hottest teams.  

What would you do with a billion dollars?  Join the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge with Yahoo Sports and start dreaming.
