About the Contest
Welcome to YEAH! BURGER’s 2014 Burger Bracket Challenge (“Burger Bracket” or the “Contest”), a competition based on results of the 2014 NCAA® Division I Men’s College Basketball Tournament (the “Tournament”). On March 16, 2014, the selection committee will seed the qualifying college basketball teams of the Tournament. Participants will attempt to select the winners of all the games in the Tournament, except for Round One of the Tournament. Participants will earn points by correctly predicting the winning teams in the games of the Tournament. The number of points awarded for each correct pick of a winning game of the Tournament will increase with each round of the Tournament (the “Brackets”). The exact number of points awarded in this contest is set forth in the Making Picks section below. The grand prize will be awarded to the Participant with the most points within twenty-four (24) hours after the result of the National Championship game on April 7, 2014 is finalized.
Entering the Contest
You may enter the Contest any time prior to the start of round two of the Tournament on March 20, 2014. Participants must go to www.burgerbracket.com (the “URL”) and follow the onscreen instructions in order to enter. If you are having trouble entering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The contest will run from March 16, 2014 through April 7, 2014 (the “Contest Period”).
The Contest Administrator is YEAH! BURGER LLC (“YEAH! BURGER”).
The teams playing in each Bracket will be posted on the URL on March 16, 2014. You must enter the Contest, fill out your complete Bracket picks and submit them via the URL by 12:00 PM ET on March 20, 2014.
After you sign up for the Contest, you will have access to an on-line listing of the Brackets displaying 60 of the 68 eligible NCAA® Division I Men’s College Basketball Tournament teams and their opponents.
NOTE: The 61st through 64th teams will be determined by the first round of the Tournament games. Those games will not be counted in this Contest. Prior to completion of those games, the 61st through 64th teams will be listed on our brackets page as “Team 1/Team 2” type format. You may pick “Team 1/Team 2” in the first round if you want to submit picks before such games are complete.
Participants must enter the projected winners of the games of the Tournament, round by round, beginning with the second round. Starting with round two, the Administrator will weigh predictions for each successive round more heavily than the previous round in accordance with the table below. Points will be awarded by multiplying the number of correct predictions of winning teams in each round of the Contest by the weight assigned to each applicable round. For example, you would receive five (5) points for five correct predictions of winning teams in round two, and ten (10) points for five correct predictions of winning teams in round three. You will receive an individual score for each of the six Tournament rounds (rounds 2 to 7) that accumulate points in the contest; and an overall score, which is the combined total of your individual round scores.
