2020 March Madness Pool - Rules


Using the 64 team NCAA Tournament bracket, choose who you think will win each game all the way to the championship.
Points will be awarded for each correct pick according to the point structure below.
Additional points will be awarded for the seed number of the winning teams you choose



Each correct pick in the 1st Round: 1 point 
Each correct pick in the 2nd Round: 2 points
Each correct pick in the 3rd Round: 4 points
Each correct pick in the 4th Round: 8 points
Each correct pick in the Final Four: 16 points
Correct Pick in the Championship Game: 32 points 

For purposes of this pool, the First Round is considered to be the Round of 64. Play-In games do not count in this pool.


The seed of the winning team is added to your point total. Since anyone can pick the higher ranking teams and do relatively well, a twist has been added to reward those that pick upset winners. 


#16 seed wins in Round 1: If you choose #16 seed, you receive 17 points for that correct pick.
(16 (seed) + 1 (correct pick in Round 1) = 17 points) 

#10 seed wins in Round 4: If you choose #10 seed, you receive 18 points for that correct pick.
(10 (seed) + 8 (correct pick in Round 4) = 18 points) 

You must get the pick correct in order to get the bonus points



The winner is the entry that accumulates the most points according to their correct picks and additional points will become the March Madness Pool champion. (It is not the most correct picks but the most points accumulated)

If there is a tie, the player who selects the total score of the championship game closest (high or low) will be the winner. If there is still a tie, payout will be split by the number of entries tied


To increase your chances of winning, you may play as many times as you wish. Each entry will be scored separately.

If you would like to play a 2nd or 3rd entry, you may choose them at signup. If you have already signed up and wish to add additional entries, please contact the league commish at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


You will need to signup before you can make selections online. Click "Sign Up Now" at the top of this page to get to the signup page.

PLAYED LAST YEAR?: If you played last year, please be looking for an email from the commish with instructions on how to renew your entries for the upcoming season. If you wish to use a different account than last year, you will need to signup as a new player. 

If you wish to play in both the Full Bracket pool and the Sweet 16 pool, you only need to sign up once.

After you signup, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions on how to pay for your pool. There are 2 options:

1.) Check/Money order by mail: These payments should be sent in the mail at least 7 days before the tournament starts to ensure it is received before the signup deadline. There are incentives paying this way, described in the Payment page you are taken to after signup.

2.) Online Payment: How to pay this way will also be provided in the confirmation email you receive after signing up.  

IMPORTANT: We use Office Pool Stop (OPS) to run these pools, however please DO NOT signup through them. For your convenience, by signing up with us, we simplify the process so you only have to sign up once. You will only have to login to get started. 

ALREADY HAVE AN OPS ACCOUNT?: Even if you have an account with them, please use our signup pages, but enter your existing login credentials you have at OPS. This will ensure all your pools will stay together under your existing account.

Once added, you can login anytime using the "Login" link at the top right of any page at Prime Fantasy Sports. Just choose the "March Madness" login option. 

NOTE: If you signup for the pool, but do not pay your entry fee in some form before the deadline, your entries will be removed for non payment, regardless of how well you are doing in the pool. This is standard procedure for all pools we run to ensure the integrity of the pool. Please make sure you get your payment in early to avoid this. 


Selections for the entire tournament are due prior to tip off of the first game on Thursday, March 19 (which is typically around noontime ET). Once the deadline has passed for that game, your picks are locked in for the tournament.

PICKS POSTED BY COMMISH: If you need help making your selections or are having computer problems, please contact the commish with your selections before the deadline and he will make them for you.


WHEN ARE SELECTIONS POSTED: Selections are posted shortly after the first game of the tournament starts

WHEN ARE RESULTS POSTED: Results are posted shortly after the conclusion of each game
