by Betcoin on March 11th, 2018

It’s March Madness time so we are doing a Betcoin Bracket Contest and giving away 50 BTC for a perfect bracket! No, that’s not a typo, FIFTY (50) BITCOIN! For those of you who are not familiar with what a bracket contest is, you select winners for the games in the 2018 NCAA March Madness Tournament from beginning to end. You will accumulate points based on your correct guesses, and the points won increase from round to round.


Below you can find a more detailed description of the tournament:
WHAT IS A BRACKET?
March Madness brackets are a form of sports betting based on the annual NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Tournament. The increasing interest in this event is fostered by March Madness brackets. A bracket is when the participant predicts the outcome of each game in the tournament. His or her predictions are compared against others in the pool, and whoever has the best picks wins the contest.
SEEDS
The four lowest ranked automatic bid teams and the four lowest ranked at-large teams in the tournament play in special play-in games called the First Four before the tournament.[2] The rest of the field is split into four regions of 16 teams, and those regions are seeded from one to 16. The top team in each region plays the 16th team, the second plays the 15th and so on. The winners of each game goes on to the next round and so on until only one team is standing. A team is knocked out of the tournament and has to go home as soon as they lose once, so the pressure is incredibly intense.
TIMEFRAME
The tournament takes place over three weekends starting soon after the middle of March.


Tiebreakers
If two or more players in a group finish with the same overall point total after a national champion is crowned, we'll use the following system to break the tie (for tiebreakers, we only take predicted points into consideration):
First tiebreaker - Closest prediction of total points scored by both teams wins.
Second tiebreaker - Closest prediction for points scored by the winning team.
Third tiebreaker - Closest prediction for points scored by the losing team. If this last tiebreaker results in a deadlock, the players remain tied in the standings.

MARCH MADNESS PRIZES
Buy-in for the contest is 1 chip per bracket. Each player can enter up to 10 Brackets.
50 BTC Bonus for a perfect bracket!
Betcoin will match 100% of all entries for the total prize pool, up to 500mBTC. This includes a 250 mBTC (250 chip) guaranteed prize pool!
1st place wins 50% of the entry fees and Betcoin 100% match +a BETCOIN HOODIE
2nd place wins 30% of the entry fees and Betcoin 100% match+ a BETCOIN T-SHIRT
3rd place wins 20% of the entry fees and Betcoin 100% match+ a BETCOIN T-SHIRT
To receive the hoodie or t-shirts you must first purchase from the Betcoin store and send receipt by email or support ticket for reimbursement. https://www.cafepress.com/betcoin
By way of example, if 500 participants enter, then the winner will receive 500 mbtc (250 for the winning and 250 for the 100% match up to 500 mbtc). Second will receive 300 mbtc (150 for the winning and 150 for the 100% match up to 500 mbtc). Third place will receive 200 mbtc (100 for the winning and 100 for the 100% match up to 500 mbtc). Each will also receive the gear as stated above, but must follow the instruction to receive. If only 50 people enter, the payouts will be 125 for 1st, 75 for 2nd, 50 for 3rd due to 250 chip guarantee!

twitchyseal: Odds of a perfect bracket are
Fri, 03/09/2018 - 20:53

Odds of a perfect bracket are 1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808 (1 in 9.2 quintillion)

KentuckyKratom: I've Done A Perfect Bracket 5x in 5 years!
Sun, 03/11/2018 - 23:43

In regards to the 1 in 9.2 quintillion I have done it 5 times in 5 years. I must be a master genius.... Please note this is a joke...
As for the odds that is correct if you do the number figures. But its quite lower if you base it off the numbers + level of competition....

EyeWonBTC: The odds of a perfect bracket never change
Mon, 03/12/2018 - 00:39

You can choose/guess more wisely or luckier than others, or think that you do, but the odds will always be 1 in 9.2 quintillion.

KentuckyKratom: I Disagree
Mon, 03/12/2018 - 00:43

The odds would be considerably lower IF lets say every single game was a 1 seed vs 16 seed. Obviously a 1 seed has about a 97 to 99% chance of winning every time.... So if you do the numbers game it will always be the same, but you must decrease the odds by the competition level of each game.... I say its more like 1 in 10,000,000

EyeWonBTC: We are both right in our own ways but 1/10M isn't even close

Odds of a Perfect Bracket:

What are the odds?

Countless websites offer enormous grand prizes for anyone able to fill out a perfect bracket. The reasoning behind such large, attention grabbing sums of money is because the odds are an astronomical 9,223,372,036,854,775,808.

Written out, that is 9 Quintillion 223 Quadrillion 372 Trillion 36 Billion 854 Million 775 Thousand 808. And this does not include the play in games.

Compare the odds:

To take this in comparison, the odds of hitting the Mega Millions Jackpot are "only" 1 in 258,890,850(258 million) and the odds of hitting the Power Ball are slightly lower at 175,223,510. Heck, the odds of getting struck by lightning in any given year are only 1 in 700,000. Needless to say there has yet to be a recordable perfect bracket.

How are these odds calculated?

Although that large quintillion number looks and sounds amusing, that number represents what are called the "True Odds". This assumes that every game of the tournament is a completely random choice. To calculate that number you would take the total number of possible winners per game which is 2 and multiply it by itself 63 times(the total number of games played). Obviously the tournament picks are not going to be completely random and you can slowly increase those odds by using your basketball knowledge and using past tournament results such as the #1 seeds never being beaten. But experts still say that even with the basketball knowledge you are still about 130 Billion to 1 to picking that perfect bracket. To sum it up, go ahead an get one of our Printable March Madness Brackets but don't be too disappointed if you have to start crossing of a losing pick or two.
