The OppLoans #MarchMadness Giveaway!
It’s March, and you know what that means: time for ALL of the basketball! Across this great nation, true hoop-heads and casual fans alike are staring at their fresh NCAA Tournament brackets.
Even for the most cynical of sports fans (We see you, Kansas) a new, unbusted bracket represents a clean slate full of opportunity and hope. It’s another chance to win some cash from your coworkers and bragging rights for an entire year!
(These beautiful brackets will totally get busted, like, two games into Round 1. But just let them have this, okay?)
One of the best parts of betting is imagining how you’re gonna spend your winnings. Are you gonna put it into savings like a responsible winner? Maybe you’ll buy your buddies (aka, the losers) a round of drinks so there are no hard feelings? What about buying a life-sized cardboard cutout of Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski to watch over you while you sleep and dream about the 2-3 zone?
Whatever you’d do with your not-so-hard-earned cash, we want to hear about it. That’s why we’re giving away $100 on Facebook and Twitter to hear what your plans are for your potential winnings!
How does it work?
