Anyone else having trouble entering the lotto for their October 3rd free fan performance?

Hey Mean Girls fans! Due to the lottery just being announced moments ago, we are experiencing a high volume of page visits and entry attempts. This is causing some background technology issues. We are working to resolve this as quickly as possible.

The good news: You have until 11:59PM EST on August 7th, 2018 to submit your entry.

Thanks Lucky Seat! - Question: (and maybe this has been answered before on here, if so I'm sorry) -

In a case like this where we can't tell whether our entry has gone through or not, if we enter/submit again later, will out entries be null and void if we've entered twice without knowing it?  More generally (as it applies to other shows like Springsteen and Frozen as well), when on your website it says "Duplicate entries... will be discarded", does that mean JUST the duplicates are discarded (i.e. you'll still be entered but only once), or does it mean you've biown it and the system nullifies and discards all entries from names/email addresses who've inadvertently submitted for the same lotto more than once? 

Due to wifi glitches, sometimes spotty phone service, and the occasional website issues like this one, this isn't the first time I haven't been sure my entry has gone through.
Thanks for having this lotto and for keeping us informed!

Hey Kimbo - thanks for your question. This is certainly something we have encountered before. Our system will only discard the duplicate entries as long as they are under a certain threshold.

That being said, if there are more than 15 entries under the same e-mail address, it can result in the entrant being removed from the lottery.

This is great to here. Since the site allows you to enter for multiple shows in advance sometimes I just plain forget if I've entered for a specific date or not. I'm happy to know that if I accidentally entry twice or thrice I can still have my original entry counted.

I entered and haven’t heard yet. Does anyone know if they will notify you if you didn’t win as well?

This should be as much of a crapshoot as DEH last year. If anyone only wants one I will gladly take yours!

My 2 daughters and I all entered and haven't heard a thing. For those who have won, did you have a certain amount of time to claim your tickets? Is that why they are staggering notifications?

Thanks!

I just tweeted Lucky Seat and got this reply: 

We are gradually sending out new winners each day until all tickets are claimed. If you have not received any e-mail yet, you still have a chance to win! Once all tickets have been claimed, non-winner e-mails will be sent.

It does seem like a slow way to do it, but I guess they have their reasons! I think you're able to select your own seats, so maybe they want to give winners some time to do that and not overload the site.

Someone mentioned winners maybe having 24 hours to claim tickets. Does anyone know if this is correct it would make sense if true that they are staggering notifications

Judging by an e-mail screenshot, winners will have until 10:00 am EST the next day to claim their tickets.

I entered the day after this lotto went live...haven’t heard anything yet, anyone else?

EDIT-Just in case, I decided to use the result checker. It said I didn't win...honestly L.S. has GOT to change their interface or something, because this is far from the first time I wasn't notified. They're interface is way to simple which has seemingly been the culprit of things going wrong, people not getting notified, heck you don't even get a confirmation of your entry...it's 2018, every site can do this.

Lucky Seat tweeted the other day that the online checker worked only for the regular lottery, not the special fan day lotto.
