How Does the BetMGM Bracket Work?
Once the field of 64 is set, select which team you think will win every game in the Tournament. Winners advance through the bracket, while losers are eliminated. Teams are split into four regions and given seeds 1-16.
The early rounds generally feature a lot of upsets, with lower-seeded teams shocking the top-tier teams and advancing, destroying millions of brackets in the process.
For the BetMGM bracket challenge points are awarded for a correct pick, with higher point totals given out during the later rounds. The scoring system works as follows:
• First Round: 1 Point Per Win
• Second Round: 2 Points
• Third Round (Regional Semifinals): 4 Points
• Fourth Round (Regional Final): 8 Points
• Fifth Round (National Semifinals): 16 Points
• Final Round (National Championship): 32 Points
The customer with the highest point total will be awarded a $100,000 prize so even if you fall short of the BetMGM million perfect bracket; there is quite the consolation.
