A little low on cash because of the struggling economy? The NCAA Tournament is a good way to earn some back.. you could win up to $100 million getting a perfect bracket, thousands of dollars beating the masses in other games, or setting up your own pool and taking a cut of the action. Now matter how you do it, you need to play to win.
Here are over a dozen games, pools, and contests to keep you busy during March Madness:
