My first piece of advice is DON’T RELY ON THE LOTTERY. Get your tickets for the Hamilton musical now, which is currently playing at the San Francisco Orpheum Theatre through August 5, 2017. I wrote a post on buying tickets here.
I can tell you that, whatever price you pay, the show is worth it. Give up your Starbucks addiction for a month. Skip a couple therapy sessions. Rent your apartment for a weekend while you go camping.
Don’t miss out on this incredible musical, which I consider to be my favorite, and a notch above Wicked which I absolutely adore.
The first thing I did was purchase tickets. Once I was committed to the show, I moved forward with entering the lottery.
How To Win The Lottery For Hamilton Tickets
1. Bookmark this website.
Enter in your details and always select 2 tickets vs 1 ticket. Because…why not?! Set a reminder for yourself and enter every day. The show isn’t 7 days a week, but setting a daily reminder got me into the routine so that I never missed an opportunity.
If you live in NYC or Chicago, there’s the Ham Lottery app that makes it super easy.
2. Enter for yourself and for another.
Enter and submit for yourself. Then do it again for your best friend or spouse or family member or as many people you know who have an email address who are willing to take you as their date. This also increases your chances. Let your friends and family know that they will start getting emails that read: Thanks for entering! You should get your results email the day prior to your performance. Remember to come back again to enter for future performances. Good luck!
3. Don’t throw away your shot!
The probability of winning the lottery is low, but I persisted and my diligence paid off. A little bit of luck was also involved, I’m sure.
Plus we won tickets for the show on my husband’s birthday. What are the odds?!
4. Here’s what to expect when you win.
Wishing you all the luck on the lottery. But remember: buy tickets. Give yourself the gift of inspiration.
