Pools Info
PoolsByRound games are quick and easy to play and fun for both sports fans and casual players. Playing is completely free with no restrictions. All pools are pick'em pools. Just pick the winner of each game, or for non-bracket pools, optionally pick which team will beat the spread.
Bracket pool picks can be made 1 round at a time, or all at once before the games begin. Playing 1 round at a time is recommended and provides a more engaging, strategic pool. Some pool's picks are due weekly, which works great for office pools.
Innovative pick'em scoring options are available for each pool. The player with the most points wins the pool or league, but not all correct picks are necessarily worth 1 point.
Notice: With the new 2024 March Mammal Madness pool, we are venturing away from sports with a pool featuring animal vs animal combats! For this pool, there are no changeable league options, scoring and method of play is the same for all players.
If you want to set up a pool league for family, friends, work mates and others, poolsbyround is built for you. Here you can set up, customize and track the results of sports pool leagues. Use poolsbyround as a tool to set up the type of pool league you want.
Typically each league member signs up and makes their own picks. But if the league commish wants to add league members that for whatever reason can not login themselves, that is also possible. In that case, the commish just adds those player's names and makes picks for them.
Leagues can also be customized with their own banner and avatar images. Perfect for branding your organization contest or fundraiser, or just for fun with your friends.
League hosting is easy for players to set up. League commissioners have convenient ways to invite players, by using either email, text or social media messages. Great league scoring options take our pick'em pools to the next level. Find out more about leagues.

Love your platform, we've been using it as a bonus round for our Fantasy football league for the last 3 years and it's been amazing!
First, I have to say how much my family enjoys playing this every year. Thanks again for this fabulous site that brings people together… in friendly competition.
Thanks for this great platform. I love the "by round" format.
Great work on the website by the way. Loving it and will be a continuing customer.
Omg i love your site so much. I’ve been looking for something like it for so long. You guys killed it with the hockey pool, love the setup, thanks so much.
Big thanks for hosting such a fun and polished product. We had a great time playing the World Cup pool.
Thank you!!! Excited to have found you guys!
Btw this tool is great. Happy to donate a few bucks if you have a PayPal or something. I would love to see it continue to develop.
We have really enjoyed your website! Thanks for your response and all you do!
Our family has had a lot of fun the past few years using the poolsbyround site and we like all of the options to date. Keep up the great work. Your site is easy to navigate and intuitive. We really like the fact that you don't have to "Save" your picks; it's automatic!
