March Madness is finally here. For the entire month of March, you have to chance to beat the odds and test your luck at various NCAA promotions and contests. All of these competitions are going to add more pressure to last year’s champions, Virginia Cavaliers. Here are the biggest and most generous March Madness bracket contests today:
Yahoo Sports’ “Best Bracket Millionaire” last year was a success. This year, Yahoo is hosting the “Tourney Pick’Em Best Bracket” contest worth $25,000. Entering the contest is free. The bracket with the highest score wins the prize money.
For direct participation, head to NCAA’s official website and join the “Capital One NCAA March Madness Bracket Challenge”. The challenge allows you to watch live games as you fill out your brackets. The prizes for the best brackets may include gift cards and VIP tickets to NCAA’s final four games in 2020.

Registered players at Nitrogen Sports can join one or two Nitro Brackets contests: Free Entry and Betslip Buy-in Entry. All players are only allowed to lock in one entry per contest, but the payout scheme can reward multiple players in different brackets (e.g. Top 50, Top 30, Top 20). Winners will receive Bitcoin free bets available for consumption at Nitrogen Sports.
If you love sports and travel, “ESPN Tournament Challenge” offers a trip for two to the 2020 Maui Invitational. The prize already includes roundtrip airfare, hotel accommodations, and free access to the tournament. Other lucky players may also receive a $10,000 Amazon gift card.
