Some upsets in the NCAA tournament didn't bust one Berkshire Hathaway worker's bracket.
A West Virginia factory worker won the company's 2017 Bracket Contest and will receive the $100,000 prize. The worker correctly picked the winners of the first 29 games of the NCAA Tournament last Thursday and Friday. If an entrant would have correctly picked the winners of all 32 games, the winning prize would have increased to $1 million. Correctly picking the winners of the first 32 games and the 16 games on Saturday and Sunday, the winning prize would have been $1 million per year for life.
More than 96,000 people entered the 2017 Berkshire Bracket contest. The company plans to hold another one next year.
