Quicken’s Billion Dollar Challenger dangled ONE BILLION DOLLARS out there to get people’s information for their marketing efforts – why do you think they asked for all that info? They got over 8 Million people’s information for free! They still are giving away some nice consolation prizes – 20 $100,000 prizes for the next best brackets. Nothing to sneeze at.
ESPN had a similar tale. They actually had over 11 Million people playing. Still no perfect bracket.
We don’t gather all that personal information; our $100 Prize is smaller; but it is guaranteed. Someone is going to win it. (No perfect brackets with our contest.)
