Frequently Asked Questions

What is Super Bowl Squares?

SuperBowl squares is a simple football pool that anyone, regardless of their football knowledge, can play and win. Winners are randomly selected so all players have an equal chance of winning.

How do you play?

  • Random numbers (0-9) are assigned to each axis of a 10x10 grid.
  • These numbers are hidden until the start of the Super Bowl (or all squares are picked)
  • Players pick one or more squares on the grid (varies by game).
  • Winners are selected based on the score at the end of each quarter.

Does it cost anything to play?

This site is free but your commissioner may charge an entry fee for your game or for each square picked.

How are winners selected?

Take the score for each team and match the last digit to the numbers across the top and side of the grid. The lucky square that sits at the intersection of these numbers wins.

How are prizes distributed?

There can be up to four winners per game: one for each quarter. Some games are set to award one winner based on the final score of the game. It is up to the commission to decide how to split the prizes.

What about empty or null picks?

If the winning square is empty an alternate winner can be selected based on any of the following rules:
  • Reverse the winning numbers: example 9,1 becomes 1,9
  • Roll the winnings over the the next quarter
  • Roll the winnings over to the final score
  • Award the square below, above, to the right or to the left of the empty square
It is up to your commish to decide which rule to use.

What if the game goes into OT?

There are a couple of ways to deal with an overtime score:
  • Ignore OT and award the 4th quarter square as usual
  • Ignore the 4th quarter and award the OT square
  • 4th quarter and OT squares split the 4th quarter win
It is up to your commish to decide which rule to use.
