Question:
How will we determine how many spots each Final Four team will get in the Jackpot Bonus Grid?
Answer:
Example #1  The Maximum # of Groups
Let's say we ultimately fill the max of 25 Groups.
From each group, (4) Final Four Participants will advance to the Jackpot Bonus Grid.
That's a total of 100 Participants (25 Total Groups x 4 Final Four = 100 Participants).
Therefore, each Final Four team will get 1 Spot on the 100 spot Jackpot Bonus Grid!
The Total Jackpot Bonus Grid will be worth $8000!
Example #2  The Minimum # of Groups
Let's say we ultimately only fill 1 Group.
From each group, (4) Final Four Participants will advance to the Jackpot Bonus Grid.
Therefore, each Final Four team will get 25 Spots on the 100 spot Jackpot Bonus Grid!
The Total Jackpot Bonus Grid will be worth $320!
Example #3  Somewhere in the middle # of Groups
Let's say we ultimately fill 12 Groups.
From each group, (4) Final Four Participants will advance to the Jackpot Bonus Grid.
That's a total of 48 Participants (12 groups x 4 final four = 48 participants).
Therefore, each Final Four team will get 2 Spots on the 100 spot Jackpot Bonus Grid (100 spots/48 participants = 2 spots per w/ a remainder of 4 spots).
*The remaining 4 spots on the grid will be randomed off amongst the 48 participants who made to the Jackpot Bonus Grid (Top 4 on the list each get an extra spot!)
The Total Jackpot Bonus Grid will be worth $3840!
