The NCAA Tournament is nearly over, but there’s still time to win big. BetRivers has been running a $10,000 Tourney Madness promotion all March long. It’s basically a betting scavenger hunt, and each task you complete earns you another shot at the $10,000 grand prize.
Here are some of the details behind this intriguing offer.
The Prize Money
Players can earn up to 10 entries in the drawing for the big money by completing different gambling-related tasks. A total of 1,000 prizes will be given away, breaking down in this way:
- Grand Prize: $10,000
- 2nd Prize: $5,000
- 3rd Prize: $1,000
- 4-10 Prize: $500
- 11-25 Prize: $250
- 26-50 Prize: $100
- 51-250 Prize: $50
- 251-1,000 Prize: $25
For those of you scoring at home, that’s more than $50,000 in free money being given out.
You earn entries into the drawing by completing different tasks, which changed from weekend to weekend during the tournament. You also get a bonus for completing all of a weekend’s tasks.
For instance, in the first two rounds of the tournament, you had to win the first-round bet, make a moneyline bet on a 12-seed to beat a 5, place a 5-leg parlay and make an outright bet on any team to win the title. Each of those four tasks got you one entry into the drawing, and if you did all four, you got a 25 percent profit boost.
In week two, you had to bet on an underdog with the moneyline, place a live in-play Elite Eight bet and make a three-leg parlay. Those three would get you a 50 percent profit boost.
For the Final Four, There Are Three Tasks Remaining.
You need to place a pregame moneyline bet on the first half of a Final Four game. You need to make an NCAA Basketball two-leg parlay on the Final Four. You need to win a live-in-play bet on the Championship game.
Each of those three tasks get you an entry for the money drawing, and if you do all three, you get a $10 free bet.
To qualify for a task, a bet needs to be at least $25 and have odds of -200 or greater. Even if you have multiple entries in the drawing, you can only win one prize.
