Buffett’s firm offers employees big prizes for NCAA brackets
Omaha, Neb. – Berkshire Hathaway employees will have a chance to win as much as $2 million a year for life in their office pool for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
But the contest is only open to the roughly 375,000 employees of Warren Buffett’s Omaha, Nebraska-based conglomerate.
To win $1 million a year for life, employees have to guess the Sweet 16 of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament correctly.
Buffett says that he’ll double the prize to $2 million a year for life if either Nebraska or Creighton win the entire tournament.
But upsets are common, so the big prizes may be safe.
Berkshire also offers a $100,000 prize for the bracket that remains perfect the longest.
If more than one person ties in the contest the prize will be split.
