NCAA Block Pool Fundraiser

Hosted by the MD 3D 2020 team

March Madness is a three week period packed will buzzer beaters, cinderella teams, and it’s a sports poolers dream. But how can you keep the excitement alive when most of your members have had their brackets busted? A great option is our Madness Squares pool format, as every game of the tournament will have a winner!

There is a 100-square grid – each square will be sold for $50, making a total pot of $5000.00.  Since this is a Fundraiser for our team — we will split the pot 50/50.  The team will get $2500 and the payout to the winners will be $2500. After all the squares have all been sold, the numbers will be randomly assigned.

The same numbers will be used for the FINAL 63 GAMES in the tournament!
(Rounds 2 thru the National Championship. The 4 First Round games will not be used.)

The 63 game tournament starts on Thursday, March 15th, and ends on Monday, April 2nd.

The last digits of the final score of each game will be used to determine the winning squares. This format makes it possible to win multiple games with the same numbers. Payouts will increase with each round of the tournament – see below:




Number of games  Total Payout
2nd Round $12.50 / game 32 games $400.00
3rd Round $25.00 / game 16 games $400.00
Regional Semifinals $50.00 / game 8 games $400.00
Regional Finals $100.00 / game 4 games $400.00
National Semifinals $200.00 / game 2 games $400.00
National Championship  $500.00 / game 1 game $500.00
