Win Up To $1,000 In DraftKings Free Second-CHance BRackets Contest

With the NCAA tournament having reached the Sweet 16, only 15 games are left. While that means the field has narrowed significantly, that’s still enough to provide a quality second chance brackets contest. Along with a couple of sponsors, DraftKings has stepped up to the plate and posted contests with prize pools of $20,000 and $25,000.

The pools have the same idea as your typical March Madness bracket, except on a smaller scale. Pick winners for each game, and points double every round:

  • 10 points for correct Sweet 16 picks
  • 20 points for correct Elite 8 picks
  • 40 points for correct Final Four picks
  • 80 points for the correct championship winner

The prize money is quite top-heavy and scales down quickly, so it’s best to play aggressively and make some big upset picks. Here’s how the prize pools break down.
