Bally’s Corporation’s digital gaming arm Bally’s Interactive announced today a new free-to-play game related to the final two rounds of the NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament.
Last Chance to Compete
Bally Bracket: $100K Overtime offers fans of college basketball one last chance to compete for one of the available prizes totaling a guaranteed $100,000 under the Bally Bracket game. The new free-to-play game allows entries until Saturday, April 2, 12:00pm EDT.
“We wanted to keep fans engaged throughout the tournament. Players and teams rise to the occasion in the Final Four and predicting the ending is always tough. This ‘Overtime’ round features an easy-to-understand predictor format that anyone can enjoy, whether you are a die-hard or casual hoops fan.”
Adi Dhandhania, COO, North America, Bally’s Interactive
The new Bally Bracket game introduced by Bally’s Interactive this year provided sports fans with a $100 million grand prize for any perfect bracket but all brackets busted just a day into the tournament following the surprising six-point overtime loss of No.2 seed Kentucky to No.15 seed Saint Peter’s on March 17, a game that many consider to be one of the biggest upsets in the history of the tournament.
Participants in this week’s Bally Bracket: $100K Overtime game will get a chance to win for each of their correct game outcome prediction entries towards the Bally Bracket prize pool.
Open to enter from Monday, March 28, 12:00pm EDT, the Bally Bracket: $100K Overtime predictor game may require players to answer questions like “Who will win the Most Outstanding Player Award?” or “How many combined free throws will both teams attempt?” giving original Bally Bracket participants increased entries to boost their chances of winning the random prizes.
Five Prizes Available for the Best Performers
At the end of the NCAA March Madness tournament, the Bally Bracket game will distribute a $100,000 prize pool into one $50,000 prize, one $25,000 prize, two $10,000 prizes and one $5,000 prize.
Bally’s Corporation is still mulling on the offer tabled by its largest shareholder Standard General. The hedge fund, which already holds a 20% stake in the company, tabled a $38.00 per share for the outstanding shares in a total valuation of $2.07 billion, offering shareholders a 30% premium on the market value of their shareholdings at the time of the proposal.
