Thinking about starting my own competition

Hey guys. So my credits are piling up and I was hoping I could start giving some away. A competition seems like the funnest way to go about it. I've had a few ideas and just wanted to know if they seemed interesting or if you'd actually play them.

The Jackpot Challenge
: The amount to win would be based on how many sign up. I'm thinking 250,000 credits for each person who joins. So 4 people would make a million, 8 people would make for 2 million etc. It would be set up tournament style. Rather than playing against everyone each event, you'd play against one person. If you win, you move up the bracket. You make your way to the top until you win the whole thing. The winner of the tournament then has a choice. They can either take the jackpot as is, or they can face me at the next event. If the players beats me, they get double. But if they lose, they get nothing.

'Dog Eat Dog' Challenge: This one is still a work in progress. This competition would be set up so we have a winner every event. The rules would change every event though. The rule set would be based on points each time. Each correct pick is 1 point, each incorrect one is -1. Like "Which underdogs will win tonight?" or "Who will win by decision?" etc. I'm thinking you can pick as many fighters as you want but that could be flawed. I will make picks as well but I will keep them hidden until after we have a winner. Once we have a winner, they can make a choice. They can either take the winnings as is, or they can ask me to reveal my score for the night. If they beat me, they get double. If they lose, they get nothing.

I won't be doing both of these ideas, which is why they have a similar twist at the end. I like the idea of 'Dog Eat Dog' but it has some noticeable issues. People could make the same exact picks or make different picks but still have the same score at the end etc. Maybe they could list their picks based on how confident they are in them and picks that are closer to the top will be worth more? idk, I gotta look into it. But what do you guys think of them? Are they both good? Do they both suck? Any changes you'd like to see? Let me know.
