The free March Madness Bracket Game presented by Steiner Sports, will offer several chances to win. In order to win prizes you must either score the most points after each individual round or score the most overall points at the end of the contest. There are opportunities to win after each round and at the contests conclusion. In the event of a tie for overall bracket points, Fantazzle will then look at the seed points that each contestant has accumulated
SCORING - Contestants will receive points for every correct selection. As the rounds move on, the amount of points received will increase.
Bracket Points - Bracket points will be determined by how many points have been accumulated in each round and then added up for the grand total of each bracket.
1st round 64 teams: 1 point
2nd round 32 teams: 2 points
3rd round Sweet 16: 3 points
4th round Elite 8: 4 points
5th round Final Four: 5 points
6th round Championship: 10 points
**Winner will be determined by overall bracket points.
NOTE - Prizes can be won after each round. For further explanation please see our March Madness Bracket Game Prizes page.
If one or more contestants are tied at the end of a round, the following tie-breakers will be used to determine a winner. Seed points will be the number one tie-breaker so please keep this in mind.
Seed Points - Each team in the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament receives a seed from 1 to 16. The number 1 seeds are the teams who are the better teams in the country with the 16 seeds being the lowest seeded.

This will reward contestants who pick correct upsets as well as contestants who pick the most correct winning teams.
