March Madness Pools are Only the Second-Most Popular Type of Office Pool
Even though March Madness gets the most press…it only came in SECOND.
Turns out Super Bowl office pools are actually more common. 63% of the people who’ve participated in an office pool say it was related to the Super Bowl, versus 55% who’ve done one for the NCAA tournament.
Pooling money together for lottery tickets was the third-most popular type of office gambling.
It’s followed by fantasy football, World Series pools, baby-related pools, Kentucky Derby pools, award show pools, Stanley Cup pools and finally, reality TV show pools.
Overall, 46% of people said they’d participated in a pool.
Of the group that had never participated, the majority said it’s because they’ve never been invited. 13% didn’t do it because they felt it was violating company policy and 4% didn’t do it because of religious reasons.
