Buffett's 'ultimate' $1M bracket

Berkshire Hathaway Chairman and CEO Warren Buffett announced Monday morning on CNBC that employees of all Berkshire companies are eligible to play what he called "the ultimate office bracket contest" for a chance to win $1 million for life.

The billionaire investor, an avid sports fan, loves college basketball and the annual men's NCAA "March Madness" basketball tournament that's coming up in about two weeks.

"If you're employed by Berkshire Hathaway, or any of its subsidiaries, tomorrow on March 1st, you're eligible," Buffett told "Squawk Box, " saying it does not cost anything to enter and can be accessed by employees at an internal website.

The person who picks the "greatest number of consecutive games correctly" wins $100,000, he said. "Somebody wins, they get $100,000. If they are tied, they split it. After every game, we will report how many are left in and what company they work for."
