Time For A Replay? Head Over To DraftKings For A Free Sweet 16 Bracket Contest

Written By Daniel Smyth on March 26, 2019

March Madness is in full swing and, as ever, there have been plenty of highs.

For the North Carolina Tar Heels, things couldn’t be going any better. With Nassir Little proving he’s worth the hype and results starting to flow, the Tar Heels have become a hot pick for many pundits.

However, after taking in the madness, we’ve found another, more lucrative pick.

Thanks to our friends over at DraftKings Sportsbook, you can win a share of $16,000 for free. Following on from its impressive $64,000 bracket, the New Jersey sports betting site is marking Sweet 16 with, well, a sweet offer.

Already open, this bracket is one that virtually every March Madness tipster will be interested in. According to NCAA.com, only one person has the perfect bracket so far. This means that many of you have already seen your selections go south.

Fortunately, with this promotion, you’ve got a chance to wipe the slate clean and start over.

Become a DraftKings recruit and embrace the madness

First off, you need to log into your DraftKings Sportsbooks account. If you’re not already a member, you can get $25 in free bets and a deposit bonus worth up to $500. That’s on top of access to the free-to-play Super 16 Bracket Contest.

When you’re in, you need to download the DraftKings Sportsbook iOS or Android app (depending on the mobile device you own).

Once you’re a member and you have the app, swipe through the site and find the bracket comp. From there, all you need to do is click the “build a bracket” button and make your picks for the remaining 15 games of March Madness betting.

As the games play out, you’ll receive points in the following ways:

  • Sweet 16: Each correct selection is worth 10 points.
  • Elite Eight: Each correct selection is worth 20 points.
  • Final Four: Each correct selection is worth 40 points.
  • Championship: Each correct selection is worth 80 points.

Thousands of ways to make some money

As with all brackets, the more correct picks you make, the more points you earn. At the end of the tournament, the top 3,680 finishers will win a share of $16,000.

For any of our regulars, you’ll know that paying more than 3,000 players is almost unprecedented. Even Golden Nugget’s annual points race only pays a few hundred players each month. So, based on this fact alone, it’s a competition that is worth your time.

Beyond that, it’s worth reiterating that entry is free!

Even if you’re a complete basketball betting novice, this is a +EV proposition. Because you don’t have to pay to play, any sort of return is a plus. Conversely, even if you don’t make it into the money, you haven’t lost anything.

In fact, what you’ll have done is add some extra excitement to what’s an already engaging March Madness.

Win a grand for free this March Madness

If that’s not enough to make you build a bracket, how about this: The top eight finishers will win at least $100. Moreover, the winner will bank $1,000!

Finally, the real clincher is that anything you receive will be credited to you in cash. That means you don’t need to worry about things such as wagering requirements, which are a common thing for a lot of NJ online casino bonuses.

The only caveat we should point out is that this contest is open to customers in all 50 states. However, we’ll say it again, this competition is free to enter.

What’s more, you’re only really battling against yourself. If you can use your knowledge of NCAA basketball and make the best picks, you stand a shot at winning. So, if you’re ready to mix it up and earn some crazy cash this March Madness, log in to DraftKings NJ online sportsbook today.
