Omaha, NE – 83-year-old Warren Buffet is considered to be one of the wealthiest people in the world. With a net worth north of $58 billion dollars he is the most successful investor alive today. He has already indicated that he will be giving away 99% of his money to various charitable organizations when he passes away which is incredible.
Mr. Buffet has teamed up with the owner of Quicken Loans to make the most ridiculous offer of all time. They have agreed to pay out $1 billion dollars or $25 million annually to anyone who can pick a perfect March Madness bracket. To sweeten the pot, Quicken has agreed to payout $100,000 to the 20 closest to perfect brackets as well.
You will have a snowball’s chance in hell of actually picking a perfect bracket though. Your odds are 1 in 9.2 quintillion to be exact. If someone actually wins I would be very shocked. I think this is more of a publicity stunt more than anything but it would still be fun to see someone win a billion!
