Before the start of the single-elimination NCAA championship series, sports fans everywhere are getting into the game by filling out March Madness brackets, predicting the outcomes of the 65 college basketball teams for bragging rights and the lure of cash and prizes. This year that lure is stronger than ever, as 2010 edition of the famous BetUS March Madness bracket contest has a $5,000,000 grand prize – bigger than ever.
“In the past, our one million dollar bracket contest has had thousands of basketball fans flooding our site to enter”, said BetUS spokesman Reed Richards. “This year’s five million dollar jackpot may even capture the attention of people who never follow the series”. If this proves to be true, those who want to learn more about the teams and get analysis on the series can head to the BetUS Locker Room’s March Madness section, which offers up-to-date articles. This year, help will also be available from hall-of-fame pro basketball players.
