William Hill offers “Three ‘N Out” contest for upcoming men’s college basketball tournament

LAS VEGAS (March 1, 2013) – Teams in the upcoming men’s college basketball tournament will face win-or-go-home circumstances each time they take the floor. The Three ‘N Out elimination contest offered by William Hill Race & Sports Book during the tournament will be far more forgiving to its players.

Each entry to the Three ‘N Out contest costs $25. Players can buy five entries for $100, receiving the fifth entry for free. For each entry, players will pick one side or total during each day of the tournament. If the pick wins, that entry moves on to the next day. Once an entry has lost three times, it is eliminated. For $100, players can get 15 lifelines spread over their five entries.

The contest will start on Thursday, March 21, 2013, and will last until there is either one entry remaining, or through the national championship game on Monday, April 8, 2013.

The deadline for entry is by tip-off of the final game on March 21.

Players may register their entries at any of the 75 full-service William Hill books throughout Nevada. Picks may be submitted at those locations, or at any William Hill kiosk, including those at PTs Taverns.

The winner-take-all format will feature a $25,000 guaranteed prize pool. If the total amount of entry fees collected exceeds $25,000, then 100% of the additional entry fees will be added to the prize pool.

“This contest offers non-stop action during the tournament, and makes one of the year’s best sporting events even better,” said William Hill Director of Public Relations Jimmy Vaccaro. “We’re excited to roll out this contest across the state of Nevada.
