In early 2018, the AGA surveyed adults to examine the pervasiveness of paid-entry sports betting pools in America. Our research asked participants if they had participated in any of several possible types of paid-entry pools including a squares or grid pool, a bracket competition, a pick ’em pool, a survivor or Calcutta pool, or a cash-based fantasy sports pool. Participation in pools generally, and in NCAA basketball in particular, is widespread.
