Was the procedure for tie breaker(s) announced? If not, how will a tie for the total score be broken?

As is tradition, the tie-breaker is determined by whoever is listed first in the current list (as of now). https://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/sports/32322-super-bowl-53-prop-bet-challenge/6/#post697213

If the list is updated then I may have to update the tie-breaker criteria. I am completely unbiased, by the way.

As stated before, the points will be divided to those tying for the closest score.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Let's assume after the dust settles that RS and I each total 555.3333 points. Will we be co-champions and have to share custody of the prizes?

Pretty sure this is just for pride, which many of us still have fun playing for from time to time. So I wouldn't get all T's and C's and too concerned about something that more than likely will not happen anyways.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

As a prize for the winner, I will award a copy of my upcoming second edition of Gambling 102, a set of two all-plastic high-quality poker cards, as well as a beer



hehe... If I have to split the winnings, I'll take the even chapters, the red cards and the first half of the beer...

32-ish entries so far ? Up the ante to 2 beers and maybe we can hit 40 !

I hereby donate one of the beers the Wizard owes me.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

In the very unlikely event of a tie, the prize will be given to all tying members, plus $100 to each of them.
