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!

We got 53 paid entries but are still guaranteeing a 250 mBTC prize pool!
Plus 50 BTC for perfect bracket!

If you filled out a bracket and it gets removed, it is because you did not follow the steps correctly. No funds were collected from anyone who didn't follow steps, so if funds were collected, you are in!
Good luck to all who entered!

If you didn't get you entry in, we will have the best live and pre-match betting options throughout the tournament, so make sure to stop by and place your bets. While you are here, you can discuss the games in our player chat!

Thanks to all,
Betcoin Sports

Sun, 03/18/2018 - 22:31

I'm pretty sure im out of it at this point, but anyone know how to view your bracket? Im not in the top of the standings, and im not sure how to get to my bracket unless its in the top 20...ive looked everywhere

KentuckyKratom: Just click the "next" button
Sun, 03/18/2018 - 23:19

Just click the "next" button at bottom.... And trust me the tournament is still open. You can be in last place and still have a shot.

KentuckyKratom: Unless You Have Villanova
Sun, 03/18/2018 - 23:23

You are still alive as long as you don't have Villanova. Majority have Villanova so odds are against to to accumulate enough points to make a comeback

BigThangz: click standings
Mon, 03/19/2018 - 01:00

Yanksheels1: ive tried
Mon, 03/19/2018 - 11:51

I think mine is bugged. I click standings and it shows me the top 20 or so players, but there isnt a next anywhere on the bottom on my screen, or anywhere else.
Also, when I go to my brackets, the betcoin group isnt listed. idk, i give up trying to look.

Yanksheels1: Nevermind

Mon, 03/19/2018 - 17:11

KentuckyKratom: I Hate Laettner
Sat, 03/24/2018 - 16:23

Everybody in Kentucky hates Duke cause of Laettner lol....

KentuckyKratom: T-shirt about Laettner
Sat, 03/24/2018 - 16:28

Their was a guy in my city that made "I Hate Laettner" t-shirts. Sold them for $25.00 a t-shirt. Ended up making over 1 million dollars( i know this cause they did a story on him). What was interesting is he was a homeless veteran. He used the money people were giving him to go to a nearby t-shirt shop and started off making 100 t-shirts. Sold them used that money to make more t-shirts and so on. Perfect marketing strategy - Used the Homeless Veteran Persona - Created a Business Strategy that knew everybody in Kentucky loved - Boom.
