You could be America’s next billionaire if you’re the grand prize winner of the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge. You read that right: one billion. Not one million. Not one hundred million. Not five hundred million. One billion U.S. dollars.

All you have to do is pick a perfect tournament bracket for the upcoming 2014 tournament. That’s it. Guess all the winners of all the games correctly, and Quicken Loans, along with Berkshire Hathaway, will make you a billionaire. The official press release is below. The contest starts March 3, 2014, so we’ll soon have all the info on how and when to enter your perfect bracket.

Good luck, my friends. This is your chance to play in perhaps the biggest sweepstakes in U.S. history. It’s your chance for a billion.

Oh, and by the way, the 20 closest imperfect brackets will win a cool hundred grand to put toward their home (or new home). Plus, in conjunction with the sweepstakes, Quicken Loans will donate $1 million to Detroit and Cleveland nonprofits to help with education of inner city youth.

So, to recap: If you’re perfect, you’ll win a billion. If you’re not perfect, you could win $100,000. The entry period begins Monday, March 3, 2014 and runs until Wednesday, March 19, 2014. Stay tuned on how to enter.

Here’s a little more information concerning the Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge:

Detroit-based Quicken Loans, the nation’s fourth largest mortgage lender, has joined forces with Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathaway to offer a chance at a $1 billion prize for completing the perfect bracket in this March’s men’s college basketball championship tournament.

Any qualified entrant who correctly enters the contest and predicts the winners of every game in the tournament will share the total $1 billion prize paid in 40 annual installments of $25 million. Alternatively, the winner(s) may elect to receive an immediate $500 million lump sum payment or share in that lump sum payment if there is more than one perfect bracket submitted.

“We’ve seen a lot of contests offering a million dollars for putting together a good bracket, which got us thinking, what is the perfect bracket worth? We decided a billion dollars seems right for such an impressive feat,” said Jay Farner, president and chief marketing officer of Quicken Loans. “It is our mission to create amazing experiences for our clients. This contest, with the possibility of creating a billionaire, definitely fits that bill.”

In addition to the potential grand prize, Quicken Loans will award $100,000 each to the contest’s 20 most accurate “imperfect” brackets submitted by qualified entrants in the contest to use toward buying, refinancing or remodeling a home.

In conjunction with the Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge, Quicken Loans will also be directly donating $1 million to inner-city Detroit and Cleveland non-profit organizations that are dedicated to improving the education of young Detroit and Cleveland residents.

“Millions of people play brackets every March, so why not take a shot at becoming $1 billion richer for doing so,” added Buffett, chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway, who is insuring the contest’s grand prize. ”While there is no simple path to success, it sure doesn’t get much easier than filling out a bracket online. To quote a commercial from one of my companies, I’d dare say it’s so easy to enter that even a caveman can do it.”

Free registration for the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket will begin on Monday, March 3, 2014 and run until Wednesday, March 19, 2014. All participants registering prior to the tournament selection process will receive their brackets the evening of Sunday, March 16, 2014 when entrants can begin filling out their bracket.

To be eligible for the $1 billion grand prize, entrants must be 21 years of age, a U.S. citizen and one of the first 10 million to register for the contest. At its sole discretion, Quicken Loans reserves the right and option to expand the entry pool to a larger number of entrants. Submissions will be limited to a total of one per household. All qualified entrants are eligible for the 20 first prize awards of $100,000 for selecting the competition’s top 20 most accurate “imperfect” brackets.

Full contest rules along with more information about the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket challenge will be released and published in the days and weeks leading up to the men’s collegiate March championship tournament.

For contest updates, and to share what you would do with a billion dollars, visit Facebook.com/QuickenLoans and on Twitter using the hashtag #billionbracket.

    What an amazing thought, to win that kind of money and thus be able to help others while helping yourself. I am a nurse and would give one third of money to people who need home care but can not afford it. I would then take at least third of money and build a couple of assisted living/ long term care facilities for people who do not have families to help them, that would be more home like than most facilities. I work in a nursing home and they can be lonely places. I want to make a difference and that is what I do each day I work, but of course to have this type of money one would truly be able to change and improve health care. Thank you so much for allowing me to enter.

    Can’t wait!!!!!

  3. chris March 16, 2014 at 7:24 pm #

    this sucks. i can’t pick a bracket in the billion dollar challenge. the website just keeps telling me that my phone number is already registered. this sucks.

  4. william March 16, 2014 at 7:30 pm #

    This is a scam. It wont let you sign up. They shouldn’t lie and put a contest out there if they aint gonna let you play.

  5. Victoria Araj March 16, 2014 at 7:37 pm #

    William, I assure you this is not a scam, we have communicated with Yahoo Sports to let them know the issue with the phone number and we are working on a resolution and we will get back with you. Thanks for your patience!

  6. Sara March 16, 2014 at 7:48 pm #

    I entered once using all my personal info only to find out my phone number has already been entered. Think you guys have been hacked.

  7. Cedric March 16, 2014 at 8:23 pm #

    I tried and I received the same error response!!!

  8. George March 16, 2014 at 11:25 pm #

    Still can’t log in. And besides, why do you need my phone number?? Email should be adequate.

  9. Victoria Araj March 16, 2014 at 11:26 pm #

    Hi George, Yahoo Sports is still working on correcting the issue, we will communicate once a fix has been made, thanks for your patience, and good luck!

  10. max warshauer March 16, 2014 at 11:58 pm #

    Yep, I registered, but never got a bracket to fill out. This is ridiculous

  11. Hawk March 17, 2014 at 12:29 am #

    BEWARE. Yep, this is BS. Takes all your information, then won’t let you enter. Then it puts you in a loop of forever asking for your Yahoo login without letting you do anything. Total BS.

  12. Erik March 17, 2014 at 12:36 am #

    Been registered for days already and the app just keeps saying start making pick on March 16th. Pretty disappointed. Hope this isn’t how your loan process works as well. Still holding out hope for a fix.

  13. Victoria Araj March 17, 2014 at 12:44 am #

    Hi Hawk,
    Please go to Yahoo.com and log in with your Yahoo account that you used to register for the bracket and then visit http://www.quickenloansbracket.com. Please let me know if you have any other issues.

  39. Carl Cox March 17, 2014 at 10:47 pm #

    I registered for the BDB challenge on this site but the verbiage that says “make your picks NOW!” is not responding and there is no actual button icon to click. However, next to that, the ‘bragging rights’ selections to create or find a pool work fine. There is no response when I click on or around the words “make your picks NOW!”

  40. Victoria Araj March 17, 2014 at 11:02 pm #

    Hi Toby, Yahoo Sports is aware of the issue and is working to correct it. Please try again tomorrow, and let me know if you have any issues. Thanks

  41. Victoria Araj March 17, 2014 at 11:03 pm #

    Hi Carl, Yahoo Sports is aware of the issue and is working diligently on a solution. Please try again tomorrow and let me know if you have any issues. Thanks

    Hi Suzanne, please visit quickenloansbracket.com and enter with your Yahoo email. Please let me know if you have any issues. Thanks.

  57. AE March 18, 2014 at 3:14 pm #

    Complete scam. Endless loop of sign in page, no brackets to be found. If this is the type of work quicken loans is known for, you can rest assured that I will never get a mortgage through them,

  58. Victoria Araj March 18, 2014 at 3:56 pm #

    HI AE, this is not a scam, Yahoo Sports is having some technical difficulties and I understand that can be frustrating. I have sent you a direct email to better assist. Thanks.

  59. Kevin March 18, 2014 at 4:10 pm #

    Please send me a direct link, website is a joke and not letting me register either. Getting same responses when I enter my yahoo information. Going to be tough to give away a million dollars with it issues like this. This is definitely a marketing scam.

  60. Victoria Araj March 18, 2014 at 4:12 pm #

    Hi Kevin, this is not a scam, there are some technical issues that some folks are having and Yahoo Sports is looking into it. I’ll send you a direct email to try to understand the issue. Thanks.

  61. Sean March 18, 2014 at 4:20 pm #

    When I try to enter the site, it asks me to log in to yahoo then takes me to the yahoo main page. I don’t even get to a point to see a bracket

  62. Victoria Araj March 18, 2014 at 4:29 pm #

    Hi Sean, I’m sending you a private email, please check your inbox. thanks

  63. AE March 18, 2014 at 5:41 pm #

    Victoria,

    Oh boy! A link to a Yahoo help page! I wanted you to know that this is less than helpful. I am finished with Quicken and Yahoo!

    Thanks for playing!

  64. Casey March 18, 2014 at 5:53 pm #

    This is bullshit. What a lie! Let’s hope this gets updated before the games start. What a joke. Get all my info and can’t even sign up. Now it says I am commenting too fast

  65. Keith March 18, 2014 at 5:57 pm #

    I sign up where is the bracket

  66. Keith March 18, 2014 at 6:00 pm #

    Could u send me a private email too

  67. Lisa March 18, 2014 at 6:13 pm #

    Too bad this is just a scam to get information. You can’t get into the brackets and pick your teams.

  68. Bob March 18, 2014 at 6:25 pm #

    Every time I try to register I have to login my yahoo account and it directs me to the main yahoo page. Very frustrating

  69. Robert deweese March 18, 2014 at 7:12 pm #

    Joke scam just a run around

  70. Micah March 18, 2014 at 7:18 pm #

    This is so much a scam!! Keeps telling me to sign into my yahoo account over and over again.

  71. scott dzierzynski March 18, 2014 at 7:45 pm #

    Same problem as everyone else. It won’t allow me to get in. I filled out my info twice, it sends me to a Yahoo log in, I enter my info and it takes me to a Yahoo home page. Never lets me get to the bracket. How frustrating for all the hype. I hope I don’t get any solicitation since the terms of my agreement was contingent on actually being allowed to fill out a bracket.

  72. Brian March 18, 2014 at 8:01 pm #

    Were can I sign up it is not working.?

  73. shawn March 18, 2014 at 8:36 pm #

    I didn’t even get to register a number and it won’t let me make any picks and I’m sure they won’t fix the problem before Thursday 1pm this sucks and is a scam

  74. John March 18, 2014 at 8:39 pm #

    Cannot fill out bracket. Keeps returning me to log in over and over. I guess no one will be winning a billion. Stinks!

  75. Victoria Araj March 18, 2014 at 9:02 pm #

    AE, I’m sorry that you are experiencing technical difficulties and Yahoo Sports is aware of the issues and working to correct it. The link I sent you was at their request so they can better assist you. I hope you will reconsider submitting via the Yahoo help link, as they will get back with you.

  76. Matthew Betz March 18, 2014 at 9:08 pm #

    If you are having problems with needing to verify your phone number, use the Yahoo app instead of the website. It worked for me…open the app and it will go smoothly from there.

  77. Victoria Araj March 18, 2014 at 9:11 pm #

    Hi Casey, Yahoo Sports is aware of the issue and is working on a fix. I sent you a direct email. Thanks.

  78. Del March 18, 2014 at 9:13 pm #

    What a waste of time…Warren Buffett and Dan Gilbert should be ashamed…I think I will go try Healthcare.gov

    Hi Ann,
    If you can’t fill out your bracket, try hitting the ESC key to remove the instruction overlay. Or try updating your browser or trying on a different device or different browser. Please let me know if this works.

  105. Dan March 19, 2014 at 12:33 am #

    Can’t log in regardless of how you try…. Sounds like class action sue time…. False advertisement and taking personal info from people using this scam….. Add me in the lawsuit I’m a victim

  106. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 12:39 am #

    Hi Dan, I assure you this is not a scam, Yahoo Sports is experiencing technical difficulties due to the volume of people on the site. They are working to fix the issue, I have sent you an email. Thanks.

  107. Bendia Boughton March 19, 2014 at 1:35 am #

    I have tried for over an hour to get the bracket… I keep filling out all the same stuff!,
    Is this just a come-on .. ? I saw Warren B . Promoting it,
    is this like the Obamacare website? You really aren’t prepare for all the basketball
    Fans to try and submit a bracket….?

    seriously???

  110. Jeff March 19, 2014 at 4:50 am #

    I tried both yahoo where I have an account and I went to ESPN because it looked like you could sign up there as well. No luck on either site. It’s the 19th…..

  111. Raymond Grant March 19, 2014 at 6:19 am #

    I am unable to access the bracket to fill out

  112. Budd March 19, 2014 at 9:17 am #

    Buffet has scammed the entire NCAA fan base.

  117. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 11:46 am #

    Hi Raymond, I understand, and have sent you an email, please check your inbox. Thanks.

  118. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 11:58 am #

    Hi Budd, I assure you this is not a scam, Yahoo Sports is just experiencing some technical issues and are working to correct them. The majority of folks are getting through without a problem. I have sent you an email directly, thanks for your patience.

  119. Pam B March 19, 2014 at 12:11 pm #

    I have been trying for 2 days, this seems like some kind of a scam. Every time I try to enter the contest it sends me back to yahoo. I’ve tried several ways to get in and you can’t.

  120. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 12:31 pm #

    Hi James, I sent you an email, please check your inbox. Thanks.

  121. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 12:42 pm #

    Hi Linda, were you able to register successfully and just can’t see the bracket? I have sent you an email as well.

  122. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 12:44 pm #

    HI Pam, I understand the issue you are having and have sent you an email, please check your inbox, thanks.

  123. Steve March 19, 2014 at 1:55 pm #

    Could not enter or see bracket is this some kind of fraud

  124. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 2:02 pm #

    Hi Steve, I am sending you a direct email to find out more about the issue you are experiencing. Thanks for your patience.

  125. Kevin Lee March 19, 2014 at 2:26 pm #

    I keep getting the error message:
    Your phone number has already been entered.
    Don’t worry, you can still play Tourney Pick’em for bragging rights.
    Can you help? This has been a very frustrating experience.

  126. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 2:41 pm #

    Hi Kevin, I have sent you a direct email, please check your inbox, thanks!

  127. Fred Lauten March 19, 2014 at 4:31 pm #

    The Yahoo sign up site is awful. You just can’t get in. This is like the health insurance website-great promotion but awful execution. If you can’t enter the site to fill out your bracket this is just another racket. And there is no site or person who will help. Tried calling Yahoo, they just keep you on hold for 20 minutes then disconnect you. Can’t even send an email complaint-just terrible.

  128. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 4:38 pm #

    HI Fred, I understand your frustration and I have sent you a private email, please check your inbox, thanks!

  129. randy cochran March 19, 2014 at 5:14 pm #

    having same problem as everyone else can get in to fill in bracket

  130. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 5:24 pm #

    Hi Randy, I sent you a direct email, but it came back undeliverable. Yahoo Sports is aware of the issue and is working diligently to solve it.
    Perhaps you could try entering on a different device, use a different browser, or try the Yahoo App, as some folks have found success doing that.

  131. mike March 19, 2014 at 6:47 pm #

    today is the 19th – have tried to enter yhr last three days but can’t
    i don’t believe you when you say this is not a scam;
    I don’t trust Quicken Loans or Buffet;

  132. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 6:57 pm #

    Hi Mike, I have sent you a private email to find out what the particular issue is for you. Thanks.

  133. Steve March 19, 2014 at 7:13 pm #

    Wants me to make a yahoo account but won’t let me

  134. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 8:09 pm #

    Hi Steve, please try another browser or device and you should be able to login at that point. Thanks.

  135. Rich Minehart March 19, 2014 at 9:24 pm #

    What a joke, nothing but publicity. Did they really even give away the 2 million to the schools and stuff like they said? We’ve been trying for days and days to enter the challenge, it keeps redirecting over and over to sign in, but will not load any type of bracket or link to get to the actual bracket. So ridiculous, but I bet everyone who tried to sign up and fill out the bracket will have their email bombarded by Quicken and their affiliates. Funny how those things happen. Website works well enough to obtain our info for their solicitation purposes but not to fulfill a contest they initiated, go figure. I can tell you this though…I call BULLS***! Yep, bulls***. This is wrong & not because of the money, the chances of winning that money are astronomical. The point is trust, and believing in a company who does what they say they will. At least they’ll have obtained a boat load of contacts to turn into possible clients, you really got us good Quicken, kudos to you.

  136. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 9:32 pm #

    Hi Rich, I understand your frustration with the technical difficulties you are experiencing. I assure you this is not a scam and Yahoo Sports is aware of the issue. Perhaps you could try entering on a different device, use a different browser, or try the Yahoo App, as some folks have found success doing that. Thanks for your patience and good luck in the challenge.

  137. Jean March 19, 2014 at 9:46 pm #

    I am trying to post my bracket, but every time I try to get passed the initial website, I continue to be directed to yahoo instead.

  138. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 9:50 pm #

    Hi Jean, please try using a different browser or device, I have also sent you an email. Thanks.

  139. Greg March 19, 2014 at 9:56 pm #

    This scam is BS cannot get to site thanks yahoo time to change. Quicken and Buffet money hordes

  140. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 10:04 pm #

    Hi Greg, this is not a scam, I understand you might be having an issue getting to the bracket. I have sent you a direct email. Thanks.

  141. David Fay March 19, 2014 at 10:56 pm #

    Is it too late to enter challenge

  142. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 10:57 pm #

    Hi David, you still have 2 hours! Good luck!

  143. Rex R March 19, 2014 at 11:18 pm #

    Getting this error too: Your phone number has already been entered.

    Help?!

  144. Victoria Araj March 19, 2014 at 11:25 pm #

    Hi Rex, I just sent you a private email, please check your inbox, thanks!

  145. Jeff N March 19, 2014 at 11:31 pm #

    Got the email from Victoria but still can’t sign in. Should have spent some of that billion to design a website that doesn’t alienate potential customers which I am sure they are doing to others, not just me.

  146. Kyle March 20, 2014 at 12:19 am #

    horrible contest, keeps telling to verify my registration and im not getting any email to verify, SCAM

  147. Jason March 20, 2014 at 12:25 am #

    Can I get the direct email? I can’t log on.

  148. Victoria Araj March 20, 2014 at 12:54 am #

    HI Kyle, do you have more than one Yahoo ID? I will send you an email. Thanks.

  149. Victoria Araj March 20, 2014 at 12:57 am #

    Hi Jason, if you have a Yahoo account you can log in at quickenloansbracket.com. If you have an issue you can try a different browser or device and that should help. Good luck!

  150. Jose Munoz March 20, 2014 at 1:10 am #

    What a publicity stunt this old man has pulled off. I tried and tried to fill out my bracket and no luck at all. Took the fun out of the tournament for me. Thanks a lot gramps.

  151. Mary March 20, 2014 at 1:10 am #

    I completed my bracket ON TIME and then tried to submit. First of all there is no clear place to submit your completed bracket. I tried to hit save bracket and got a warning that if I leave the page I will use everything. When I said ok it wiped out eveything and then said it was too late. You owe me $1 billion.

  152. Victoria Araj March 20, 2014 at 1:34 am #

    Jose, I understand your frustration with some of the technical issues on the site. I hope you were able to submit your bracket by trying a different browser or device before the deadline. Thanks for your understanding.

  153. Victoria Araj March 20, 2014 at 1:35 am #

    HI Mary, I understand your frustration with the site issue you were having but if you hit save, it should’ve gone through. Thanks and good luck!

  154. John March 20, 2014 at 7:37 am #

    Registration is a joke let’s file a class action lawsuit and win some real money!!!!!!

  155. Victoria Araj March 20, 2014 at 2:06 pm #

    Hi John, I understand your frustration and I have sent you an email. Thanks for your understanding.
