    I would just like one question answered. I was under the assumption that initially this lottery system was set up to even the playing field and make it more fair, my question is, how can people be winning both nights to Fenway while others lose both nights?

    The explanation is in this thread in a few spots, basically night 1 the 1st priority requests exceeded the amount of tickets available. Some folks with night 1 as 1st priority lost, all with priority 2 and beyond lost.
    Night 2 more tickets than 1st priority requests. so some folks were drawn with Priority 2.

    2 shows are drawn independent of one another. So if you entered for both and had priority 1 as 8/5, you had a chance to win 0,1 or 2 nights, if you entered both in reverse priority (8/7 1st), you won night 2 but lost night 1.
    All I know is I've talked to atleast 10 people who put in the same exact order as I did and entered the drawing after I did and they all won atleast one and some won both shows while I lost on both. Sorry still bitter! And regardless of what I hear my opinion is that the lottery still needs improvement.
    That sucks. Just for reference, it makes no difference when you enter the lottery. You can enter in the first 5 minutes or the last 5 minutes, it does not matter at all.

    As for the other issues...it seems that Fenway Night 1 was the biggest demand.

    So, lets split these 10 people into 2 groups, group A and group B.
    Group A put Night 1 as their first preference, and night 2 as 2nd preference.
    Group B put night 2 as their 1st preference, and night 1 as their 2nd preference.

    So, it would seem that Group B would ALL get their night 2 selections, but not get night 1.
    Meanwhile, Group A....only a few would get Night 1, and some would get night 2. Randomly.
    If you put Night 1 as your 1st, you could miss out on both.
    All ten people put in the same exact prefrence order
    Yes night 1 first - its been explained.
    Yeah quite the solid explaination, thanks. Why would I think some people winning both nights at Fenway while others lose both nights isn't fair? What's wrong with me

    2nd choice 08/07/2016 Boston, MA- Reserved Seating $188.00 WON

    Well, based on this, people who chose 8/7/2016 as first choice should win.
    Yes, have yet to hear of anyone losing 8/7 as 1st priority.
    Haven't lost with 8/7 as 1st choice, but havent won either- still tba...

    from what i see around...one thing is sure..odds are talking to members....they tell u whats the best option to score tix,,its really great tool

    I agree, but it only shows so much as the odds are all inclusive of every priority level. For the tool to truly be useful, they should break down the odds by priority level. This would be quite a simple adjustment in the equation used.

    For instance based on what I am seeing, here are my guesses at what the odds would have looked like for Fenway had they been broken out.

    Fenway 1 Priority 1 95%
    Fenway 1 Priority 2-6 0%

    Fenway 2 Priority 1 100%
    Fenway 2 Priority 2 20%
    Fenway 2 Priority 3-6 0%

    *Note - these are not actual odds!
    i agree,,would be even better
    from the other hand,if u see a show with 95% well..u will get it with your 1st or second or 3rd priority..so u could try play the lotto for more difficult show as 1st priority..
    for exable,seated at wrigley 2 had great odds..so,u could try the ga and if not score,u would get the seated

    For people who misunderstand how this lottery works, yes I do feel bad. I personally entered Night 1 first because I knew it would give me a better shot at winning tickets to both shows, but also that it meant I might lose both. Felt like Night 2 was obviously the less popular option and a guaranteed win as first priority. I've spent my time complaining on here but honestly I have nobody to blame but myself.

    Same here, except my bday is 8/5.

    Based on what I see, you should be fine! I will have to rely on the 10c ticket lotto gods!

    I am the biggest asshole, I wanted reserved seating for Wrigley night two, and I literally noticed right after the draw closed that I clicked GA. AHHHHHH. We were planing a summer trip to Chicago, I am utterly heartbroken,

    I will almost certainly have two extras for this night; don't lose hope.

    I think what people are trying to explain is.....night 1 was in higher demand....

    Dont think about the odds for a moment....those odds dont give a true indicator.

    Lets say there is 1 ticket available for each show:
    Chicago
    Boston
    New York

    And I put my preference as
    1st Chicago
    2nd Boston
    3rd NY

    Then my friend puts their preference as
    1st New York
    2nd Chicago
    3rd Boston

    Then you put your preference as this:
    1st Chicago
    2nd New York
    3rd Boston

    So, for all shows, they would say 33% chance of winning.
    So, the lottery happens for Chicago....and there is only 1 ticket, I win it.
    Now, we move on to New York. The friend is the only one with NY as their 1st, so they win it.
    Now, move on to Boston....You got shut out twice, but have Boston as your last show...I have Boston as my 2nd priority, so it will give the ticket to me.

    Thats How I end up with 2, and the friend gets 1, and you get none.

    So, Night 1 for boston there was a TON of "1st Priority" selections.
    Night 2 for Boston, there was much less.

    So you could be lucky and get night 1, and then an easier Night 2 ticket.
    Or you could have put night 2 first, and assured yourself of a ticket.
    But since night 1 went quick, you missed out. Now anyone who put night 2 as their first gets first crack at night 2. Then anything left over, is thrown into the mix.

    Near to death.
    Here to die.
    Scared alive.
