TodayTix Lottery

The TodayTix Lottery allows you to enter a chance to win discounted or free tickets to select shows.


Entering Lotteries

During the entry period, typically from midnight the day of the performance until when drawing begins, submit your name and number of tickets you'd like to purchase on the TodayTix app or website. 

Your chances of winning are not affected by when you enter. Winners are selected randomly.

Entry Modification

In order to protect the integrity of the Lottery, we are unable to modify your entry name, email address, phone number, or number of tickets requested. 

After purchase, if the production allows changes to any of this information, you can attempt to change them by logging into your TodayTix account and navigating to 'my orders'. If the option is not available, we are unable to alter this information. We apologize for any inconvenience.

If you entered the incorrect pick up information on your entry you’ll be able to correct the pick up name and email address at checkout if you are selected as a winner.

If you input the incorrect contact information on your entry, you’ll be able to monitor your lottery status during the drawing on the “My Orders” section of your account.

Social Media Sharing

When you share your lottery entry on Twitter or Facebook, TodayTix will automatically double (for one share) or triple (for two shares) your chances of winning. You do not need to submit another entry, nor will you receive notification of your share, just complete the share(s) and your odds will be increased accordingly. 

Winner Selection

Selection is random and typically happens within a few hours before the show over a 2 to 3 hour timeframe. So that we can ensure that all lottery tickets are distributed, some users are waitlisted in case some of the winners do not claim their tickets, so you may not be notified right away whether you've won or lost.
