As Annual Basketball Madness Gets Underway, Famed Sports Bar and Grille Chain Launches Competitions Of Its Own, With a Host Of Prizes and Special Offers for All

March 15, 2013 // Franchising.com // DGEWATER, Md. – The Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille announced today that it will mark the annual NCAA college basketball tournament with a bracket challenge featuring a guaranteed Grand Prize of $20,000, and a festive game-day experience for guests.

Guests of the chain’s locations in Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Washington, D.C., can register to participate in The Greene Turtle’s $20,000 Bracket Challenge by visiting TurtleBracket.com. No purchase is necessary. Once the tournament field is announced on March 17, contestants can fill out brackets on the TurtleBracket.com website, indicating which teams they believe will emerge victorious in each match-up through the championship game. Completed brackets must be submitted by 11:59 a.m. on March 21. Contestants will earn points for each correct selection, with greater weight placed on picks later in the tournament. Contestants will be able to improve their brackets by earning bonus points from watching games at participating Greene Turtle restaurants. They can collect scratch-off cards that reveal codes redeemable at TurtleBracket.com. Bonus points will be offered in values of 1, 3 or 5 points based on the code entered online and are capped at 15 for the contest. Contestants will also receive coupons via email throughout the tournament as an incentive to watch games at participating restaurants. At the conclusion of the tournament, a winner will be named based on total points earned, and a check will be presented during the week of
April 15.

Everyone’s A Winner: Special Discounts for Contestants; Game Day Excitement for All

Whether they’re participating in the official bracket contest or not, guests of The Greene Turtle who visit participating restaurants on NCAA game days will also be eligible to participate in daily Pick ‘Em contests and win great door prizes, ranging from a free milkshake to free burgers for the rest of the year. In addition, the scratch-off cards that will be handed out include one of three discount offers, such as a half-price appetizer, that are valid for throughout the tournament.

The Greene Turtle will also be offering special drink promotions to all guests on game days, including Miller Lite 22-ounce drafts for $2.49, Blue Moon 22-ounce drafts for $4.99 and limited 80-ounce beer towers of Bud Light for $16.99.

“The March college basketball season is one of those times of the year when our restaurants become even more popular as gathering places as friends and families to cheer on their favorite teams or just experience the excitement of heated, sudden-death competition,” says Bob Barry, CEO/President of The Greene Turtle. “We want to help build that excitement and reward customers for making us their top pick for great fun times and of course, fandom. From the first tip-off to the final buzzer and on to our presentation of the $20,000 Grand Prize check, we’re expecting a thrilling, fulfilling time for many throughout our communities, and look forward to continuing to serve up a great experience all year round.”
