Some of the best March Madness contests though can be found right on legal sports betting sites as they are offering some of the biggest payouts for this year’s tournaments.
BetOnline & SportsBetting $75k March Madness Contest
Of all the March Madness contests that are available, BetOnline and SportsBetting have the biggest payouts for first place on their platforms.

MyBookie Bitcoin Grand Prize March Madness Contest
MyBookie took a different approach to their March Madness contest as they are offering a grand prize of a Bitcoin to first place with the cryptocurrency market rising higher than ever. They are also offering an NFT to the second-place winner. Between 750th place and 3rd, the prizes range from $60 to $5,000.
Differing from the BetOnline and SportsBetting contest, at MyBookie, 50 max entries are allowed. Also, their contest is based on a points system as well where the entrant with the most points wins the grand prize.
Comparing To DraftKings + FanDuel
The only advantage that can be found on the March Madness contests at DraftKings and FanDuel is that these are free to enter contests. However, they can only be entered from states with sports betting. Their prize pools are not as big as those at BetOnline, MyBookie, or SportsBetting either. First place on DraftKings can only earn $2,500 while on FanDuel sportsbook, their contest is much smaller with a $250 grand prize.
Also, yes, they are free contests, but it is single entry which makes it even harder to place in these contests. With 20-50 entry maxes on BetOnline, MyBookie, and SportsBetting though, there is more room for prizes.
