Like the title says, I got COMPLETELY blanked! Looking for 2 GA standing in Barcelona, anyone help? I'll pre-pay to lock them up now if you promise to not disappear on me after I've flown halfway around the world, PLEASE!

Thanks,

Dom

    In that order you should have secured at least Berlin.

    Absolute worst pull ever, and I'm 45 years old so that's a lot of tours. If you can help wifey & I at all it would be super appreciated.

    It doesn't make sense to me that if Berlin GA was in 1st position why you didn't get those tickets. People who had it in the 5th position were successful. Therefore it is not logical.

    I would contact 10C if that was truly the case. As that isn't bad luck, that is incorrect drawing.

    Otherwise, I call bollocks.

    If the instance that you had Berlin GA in first or second position, it is my understanding that you should have won those tickets.

    I agree OP - you should email 10C about this if what Princess Bulldozer says is true. If this lottery isn't on the up and up, people have to do something about it. Man, I hope there is a logical explanation, because anything else will be, well, disillusioning to say the least.

    I would be surprised if they are able to do anything.

    The lottery is RANDOM.  There are all kind of discussions and theories of how it works but the operative word is random.

    FWIW....

    Yes, but it's been my impression that it's only random within each individual choice level. That randomness should be between all choice levels at the same time. Have I got that right?

    I don't know right or fair, should have got...based on odds high or low, it's random draw.  If I knew for sure we would all have tix!

    If OP had Barcelona GA first, at 99% that's a sure thing! Same with Berlin at any spot in order. (There is no 100%, thus 99% is 100% in terms off PJ Odds)
    My hunch is that your CC got declined/fraud protected and your entry was denied.

    Sorry, but I am sure you will be able to find the tickets you're after. Good luck!

    This doesn't make sense to me either, are you sure you didn't have the request in for reserved seats or something?  I got Berlin as my third choice, and I know others who got it as their 5th and 6th choice...  Never say never I guess, but seems very strange to me.

    My card got declined and they sent me an email saying to make an alternative payment 

    I had Berlin as my fourth choice...surely anyone who had it as no.1 should've won

    Edit: quoted wrong person :/
