Elite Eight offers a $3,000 cash grand prize, $250 Division prizes and over $20,000 in cash prizes. Elite Eight is not your usual bracket game. Participants select the 8 schools that they think will get the most points based on the Elite Eight scoring method. Points are based on the school seed and the round number of the games won. Additional points are awarded for selecting the regional and overall winners. After Round two games, participants can select two bonus schools and receive additional points for their performance.
To get in this exciting game, an entry can be set up for only $10, or 3 entries for $25. The entry deadline is Thursday, March 16th at 10 AM CT.
“We are excited to offer this unique basketball bracket game,” said CDM Fantasy Sports’ President Carol D. Matthews. “This style of game has become one of the most popular ways to enjoy the basketball tournament, and an easier way for the casual fan to participate in a bracket style game” Matthews furthered. “It doesn’t require an intense knowledge of all 65 teams in the field, just eight teams who you think can win some games.”
Jeffery Oxley of Tampa Florida, Grand Prize winner of $3,250 in 2005, is the defending champion.
