We’re out there to reward the most talented sports pickers in the country with great prizes and a unique game that is worthy of their abilities.

The next generation of college basketball tournament bracket contests arrives today with the launch of PicksPal.com Hoops 1001. The revolutionary tournament bracket introduces 10 million college basketball fans to a new way of getting more involved in the tournament. Created exclusively for this special time of year, it offers per-round prizes and 1001 picks and props during the three week college basketball tournament.
Instead of picking the standard 65 outright winners of the conventional bracket, the Hoops 1001 contest lets PicksPal.com members pick against the point spread, over/under, and hundreds of fun props and exotic picks. Members can select from up to 50 prop picks for each game – such as how many three-pointers will JJ Redick make; which team will win the opening tip; or how many buzzer beaters will there be on any given day.
Unlike traditional bracket games, PicksPal.com’s Hoops 1001 Contest offers a number of live, in-game picks that add an interactive element never experienced in the history of online tournament brackets. In addition, the contest includes special picks for the second-half based on first-half action.
Rather than attempting to pick every winning team from the beginning of the tournament, PicksPal.com gives players 5,000 points at the beginning of each round, which means it is never too late to play. College basketball fans can start at the beginning of the tournament or join once eliminated from their standard bracket games. Members who lose all points in one round still receive an additional 5,000 points for the next round. The member with the most points at the end of each round will win an iPod, and the tournament champion will win a 42-inch flat panel HDTV.
“Our College Hoops Bracket Contest is a one-of-a-kind offering with the most picks ever posted on one site. It has an edge-of-your-seat live element with in-game picks and tons of challenges for sports fans to compete with their friends and co-workers,” said Tom Jessiman, Founder and CEO of PicksPal.com. “We’re out there to reward the most talented sports pickers in the country with great prizes and a unique game that is worthy of their abilities.”
