Wow, I did not expect that. While entries started coming in pretty good from the time I opened the original March Madness Survivor Pool late last week through the weekend, I didn’t send the sign up newsletter until this morning. It went out about 10:00am Eastern. A little after 3:00pm, the pool was sold out. That has never happened before, but it is a clear sign people love our take on NCAA Men’s Basketball!
What to do, what to do? Soon after the first pool hit the maximum entries I already started receiving notes from people asking about a second pool. Okay, it cost me a bunch of sleep, but a second and third pool are now available! Introducing…
- March Madness Survivor II – $40 entry, $2,000 prize, capped at 58 entries (great odds)
- March Madness Survivor III – Free entry, $150 prize, no overall limit, max 1 entry per user
To join the free pool, make sure you are logged in, and click the join button on the results page. This will take you to the opening round picks form. Submit your pick, and you are in that pool. We are offering a cool $150 prize to the winner of the free entry pool. Yes – free!
For those who already signed up for the original $20 pool, if you’d like to transfer a pair of your entries to the $40 pool, then let me know and we’ll get it worked out. Then if there are those out there who really prefer the $20 level, some spots may still open up. Stay tuned to the website, or follow us on Twitter and Facebook, for the latest updates.
If you enjoy playing in the March Madness Survivor Pool, or any of the other pools we run all year, then please lend a hand supporting the cause to keep this website operating. Here are some examples how you can help. Thanks, and good luck in each of the three March Madness Survivor Pools. It is going to be a wild week ahead!
