New Hamilton App for Lottery Tickets
I saw Lin-Manuel Miranda on the Late Late show with James Corden the other night and he mentioned a new “HamApp” where you can enter the ticket lottery. The app is in addition to the online ticket lottery described here.
Sign up on app
The website says the app goes live for Chicago tickets on August 29, 2017.
It looks like the app goes live on August 27. It’s available for iOS and Android. Download here.
First sign up for an account. The Chicago tab isn’t active. I signed up through the New York tab. Click on “Enter now” for the next lottery. It will prompt you to either sign in or sign up. Sign up. You can then exit without actually entering the lottery.
As you’ll see below the great thing about the app is that you find out if you’ve won tickets the day before.
rather than day of with the online lottery. ***Update The online lottery has changed to day before notification.***
Entries for the lottery for each performance close at 9:00AM CST the day before the performance. Winner and non-winner notification will be sent at approximately 11:00AM CST the day before the performance via push notification or email if you do not enable push notifications.
If you didn’t win and have not set up push notifications you have to check the lottery page in the app to check their lottery results.
If you win
Winners must purchase their tickets with a credit card by 4:00PM the day before the performance. Tickets must be picked up at the box office 30 minutes before the performance.
Watch Mr. Miranda and Corden perform Hair in the middle of LA streets here. Hilarious particularly at 7:09 minutes!
