Bishop Canevin March Madness Block Poll

What are March Madness Squares?

  • There is a 100-square grid
    • $20 Grid: Each square will be sold for $20, with a total pot of winning $890.00 per bracket filled.
    • $50 Grid: Each square will be sold for $50, with a total pot of winning $1780.00 per bracket filled.
  • When all the squares have been sold, numbers will be randomly assigned on or before Wednesday, March 20th.
  • The same numbers will be used for the FINAL 63 GAMES in the NCAA Tournament!
  • All games from Round 2 through the National Championship. The 4 First Round games will not be used.
  • The 63 game tournament starts on Thursday, March 21st and ends on Monday, April 8th.
  • The last digits of the final score of each game will be used to determine the winning squares. If a final score is 86-79, the winning team's number is 6, the losing team's number is 9.
  • This format makes it possible to win multiple games with the same numbers.
  • Payouts will increase with each round of the tournament - see below:
