How Does The Block Pool Work?

Not sure how the Basketball Madness Block Pool works?  Read on!

Step 1. Get a block by clicking the orange button below and donating $100. Tell your friend to get one, too! Our goal is to sell 200 blocks to make two pools. There are 100 blocks in each pool.

 

Step 2. As shown in the image, your name is randomly assigned to a block in a pool. Numbers 0-9 are randomly assigned to the rows and columns of the pool.

The green number is the last digit of the winning team’s score. The orange number is the last digit of the losing team’s score.

Step 3. Enjoy the NCAA Men’s  Basketball Tournament games.

Step 4. Check your green and orange numbers. You win a prize if both of your numbers match the halftime or final score of the Elite 8, Final 4, or Championship games.

For example, using the bracket shown the final score of the Championship game is 78 to 65.  In this example, YOU win the block pool prize because your green number matches up with the last digit of the winning team’s score (8) and your orange number matches up with the last digit of the losing team’s score (5).  (See image)

You win a "Halftime Score Prize" if your "numbers" match the last digits of the score at halftime, with the "Winning Team Score" being the last digit of the score of the team that is in the lead and the "Losing Team Score" being the last digit of the score of the team that is losing at the half.

You win a "Final Score Prize" if your "numbers" match the the last digits of the score at the end of the game (final score), with the "Winning Team Score" being the last digit of the final score of the team that wins the game and the "Losing Team Score" being the last digit of the final score of the team lost.

Step 5.  Watch your mailbox for your prize. The chart shows the prizes that you can win. Prizes will be sent to you via USPS.

Remember, your “numbers” are good for each of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Elite 8, Final 4, and Championship games. That means, with each block you purchase you have 14 chances to win a prize!

It's that easy! Don't wait, get your block now!
