Entrants need to pick one game each day of the basketball tournament. All games are posted in half point spreads so there are no ties for an individual selection. Entrants can pick either a side bet or a game total.
Once a player suffers three losses, he/she is eliminated from the tournament.
A selection must be made for each day of the tournament. Selections are made on Game Days at a Leroy’s Sportsbook or Leroy’s casino kiosk or at one of the 37 PT’s or Sierra Gold taverns. Prize pool money is paid to the top finishers after the final game of the contest on April 4th (See contest rules for prize pool distribution).
Because we're into sports, we're asked to be a part of a lot of the NCAA tournament brackets with our friends. Frankly, if there's no action, even $5, we don't care. Even if there is money at stake, we still don't tend to care. Filling out countless March Madness brackets seems silly to us. We know many like it, but we keep it old school like that. This contest, however, seems as if it's a cheap and easy way to have "skin in the game" without filling out more brackets. That's something we may be able to get into. Complete rules are available at all Leroy’s locations and Leroys.com.
As we were writing this, we got word that Riviera is beefing up its March Madness contest. We first told you about it last week. The entry fee has been changed to $100, from $1,000 a pop. The grand prize is $500,000. Nothing wrong with that. You can find complete details here.
