Just saw this on Sportscenter. Pretty cool, wish I had a time machineThe 83-year-old Omaha-native’s company Berkshire Hathaway is teaming up with Quicken Loans’ Dan Gilbert, owner of the Cleveland Cavaliers, to offer a cool billion to anyone who can successfully fill out the perfect bracket for this year’s NCAA Men’s basketball tournament. The payments will be given in 40 annual installments of $25 million for a grand total of $1 billion dollars.
So what, you may ask, are the odds of filling out the perfect bracket? Roughly 1 in 9.2 quintillion.
But if you tend not to have much luck in March, it should be noted that the contest’s 20 most accurate “imperfect” brackets will be awarded $100,000 to be used toward buying, refinancing or remodeling a home.
The person who correctly chooses a perfect March madness bracket may choose a lump sum payment of $500 million or 40 annual installments of $25 million.
If more than one person predicts the perfect march madness bracket the grand prize is split.
Only the first 10 million registrants of the contest are eligible to receive the grand prize.
