    hh gregg is giving away a 50″ hdtv for it’s bracket contest

  2. Bankroll Sports Staff Says:

    Thank you for the report Michael. We have added this contest to the list!

  3. Robyn Says:

    Applebee’s is offering the chance to win $1 million for a perfect bracket and lots of other prizes, too.

  4. Bankroll Sports Staff Says:

    Thank you for the report Robyn. We have added this contest to the list!

  5. frank crane Says:

    sobe bracket contest. Did not see it on the list

  6. Frankie Says: has a free contest with a $1 million grand prize as well as other prizes.

  7. Bankroll Sports Staff Says:


    The Sobe contest is part of the Fanhouse contest.


    The SportsBetting contest is not free.


  8. art Says:

    Aren’t and Applebess contest the same, since they are both upickem contests? I just want to make sure so I don’t have two accounts that are not accepted.

  9. Bill Says:

    free gas

  10. Frankie Says:

    The Sportsbetting contest is free, I play there every year. Betus is not free though, you have to make a deposit to be elligible.

  11. Moe Green Says:

    Art says: Aren’t and Applebess contest the same, since they are both upickem contests?

    –> I found several of those upickem sites… mostly newspapers and radio sites.. the rules have eligibility disclaimers that say that the ‘affiliate’ can restrict their local prizes to their own definition… I don’t know how they handle multiple entries for their national prize, but I entered on a few different sites anyway. It is something that upickem should clarify in their rules. The same issue exists for their weekly football picks during the NFL season.

  12. Moe Green Says:

    sorry for the double post.. here is one that is not on your list:

    Southwest Airlines Bracket Challenge:

  13. Bankroll Sports Staff Says:


    Yes, we are removing the contest today. UPickem seems to run them all the same with multiple businesses. Very tacky and gimmicky.

    We are adding the Southwest Airlines contest today, which will probably be the final edit before the dance. Next year, we take into account all off the suggestions.

    We appreciate your input and wish you the best of luck this year with your brackets!

  14. Bankroll Sports Staff Says:


    BetUS has done so much for this site and our customers. So, we are obligated to leave their contest up. They offer our visitors who come from Bankroll Sports a huge 100% bonus and lot of other perks. This is the only required deposit contest on our site.

    We will also add the Sports Betting contest next year when we have a chance to look it over.

    Thank you for your input and suggestions! Best of luck with your brackets!

  15. Gilbyg27 Says:

    Thanks for the heads up on the contests Bankroll Sports Staff!!!

    Frankie is 100% right…………but it’s fine by me if less people play.


  16. The Morris Family Says:

    Yes, for future reference so far every year, there has been the NCAA tournament/bracket contest on Thanks.

  17. Bankroll Sports Staff Says:

    We have already commented on this. The contest is the same contest as the Applebees contest.


  18. LeAnne Says:

    ruby tuesday’s

  19. Bankroll Sports Staff Says:


    Do you have a link to this contest? Some of these Facebook contests are a little difficult to find.

    Bankroll Sports Staff

  20. Matt Says: is giving away a portable beer pong table and some other cool drinking accessories. It’s no million dollar flying tv, but the odds of winning should be pretty high!

  34. Chris Says:

    Looking at the sportsbook website, you need to bet $20 during all rounds (2-7)=$120 not just the first 3 rounds.

  35. Bankroll Sports Staff Says:


    Yea, I am still not sure what “Q Bucks” are.

    So, that’s not really a sufficient prize.

    Bankroll Sports Staff

  36. Bankroll Sports Staff Says:

    Thanks Chris,

    We’ll change our message. Getting a little close to start time anyway.

    But, will change it on the next update.

    Bankroll Sports Staff

  37. Bankroll Sports Staff Says:


    Ok. We adjusted the list a bit. We have two sponsor contests up there that aren’t 100% free; BetUS & Hollywood.

    We decided to swap the contest and replace it with Hollywood Sportsbook’s contest. Hollywood has the same requirements. However, they have a much smaller contestant field (with a 10K first prize). You also will get an an exclusive 25% bonus from Bankroll Sports. So, a $100 deposit will give you $125 in total betting cash sto cover all 6 bets and make you eligible for a $10,000 first prize contest (with just a few hundred contestants). Again, we think of everything!

    Additionally, BetUS requires a $100 deposit for an entry into their massive prize contest. We also have an exclusive bonus with them; deposit $100 up to $500 and get 100% bonus. So, make a $100 deposit at BetUS and you’ll get an entry to their big contest as well as an additional 100% bonus (if you use our link above). Make a $200 deposit, get an extra $200 as well as two entries into the contest (all the way up to $500 for $500 free and five entries!).
