Playing Pickoff’s NCAA Basketball Tournament is the best way to use your college hoop smarts and upset-picking skills into a cash prize.
And there is a lot of talk that this year’s tournament is going to be Upset City, with maybe the first beatdown by a 16 seed over a 1.
But you’ll have to be sharp!
Pickoff’s game is different than any others you’ll play. For starters, you get to start each round fresh, meaning that any incorrect picks in the prior round won’t stop you from selecting the team that actually won in the next round . And you’ll get increasing Pickoff Cash values for wins in each round. Plus there is always the fast-track way to more Pickoff Cash through a challenge.
This means you will need to make new selections after each round, so make sure you come back after the finish of a game to make your next selection – and to challenge your friends!
Our point structure works like this:
First Round (March 19-20) = 500 in Pickoff Cash
Second Round (March 21-22) = 1,000 in Pickoff Cash
Third Round (March 23-24) = 2,500 in Pickoff Cash
Sweet Sixteen (March 28-29) = 5,000 in Pickoff Cash
Elite Eight (March 30-31) = 7,500 in Pickoff Cash
National Semifinals (April 6) = 10,000 in Pickoff Cash
Championship Game (April 8) = 20,000 in Pickoff Cash
