I'm sure some have but my girlfriend and myself have lost over 500x combined for mean girls and have lost Hadestown every time we enter which has to be pushing 200x now. We just started entering Book of Mormon just to see if we can actually win one of their lottos lol

I'm always super skeptical with lotteries.  I mean, I've been entering the lottery for Hamilton (which I know isn't through Lucky Seat) since it was Off-Broadway and I have never won.  I know many people who have (some of whom have won multiple times), so I'm aware that my "luck" isn't quite there - but I don't know a soul who has won via Lucky Seat.

I won Groundhog Day, Kinky Boots, and Hadestown. Like user yeah I have lost thousands of lotteries over the years on Lucky Seat, but my friend who only recently started entering won Frozen (twice), Mean Girls, and Book of Mormon all within 2 weeks of each other. Not sure what's up with that...

We have won plenty of online lottos before just never anything through lucky seat, I figure we gotta win eventually some day lol

I’ve never won a Lucky Seat lotto or whatever it is My Fair Lady/Oklahoma/Dear Evan Hansen use. Meanwhile I’ve won Hamilton, Aladdin, Cher, Wicked, and a ton of other shows off of Broadway Direct. Any lottery that isn’t Broadway Direct has made me kind of skeptical.

Yes. Hamilton (used to be Luckyseat), Frozen, Kinky Boots, and Groundhog Day. Aside I've also won The Cher Show, Wicked, The Lion King, Dear Evan Hansen, School of Rock, Spongebob, Anastasia, War Paint, Aladdin, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Tootsie, Beautiful, and I think that's it.

But beware, I looked it up and I have something like 1,600 lottery rejections in my email inbox. It takes a lot of entries to wrack up the wins. But you'll get there if you have patience and schedule flexibility!

This is interesting to me as I've been entering Aladdin and Lion King consistently for 3+ years and have not won...

One of my friends won the Book of Mormon lottery on her first week trying. 

Have any of you tried the lotteries as an out of town visitor? I have tried a couple times during my travels there, but no luck yet. I always wonder if the non-US postal code hurts my chances.

It used to be on Lucky seat between stints on Broadway Direct. In 2017 it was Broadway Direct, and it's back there now. (You can currently enter through the website or through the app. I personally prefer the website. I like being able to look at my inbox and see the number of times I've entered.)

Just like any lottery, it's luck. It's certainly harder to win those lottos because you can enter a week in advance and you can check the boxes for extra entries, so I'm sure there are tons of people in for each show. I've won Kinky Boots and Groundhog Day both through there, but nothing else. As for other lottos, I've won Aladdin, War Paint, Beautiful, The Band's Visit, School of Rock, DEH, CATCF, SpongeBob, and Cats.

Heck, I've never won ANY lottery - in person or otherwise. (Granted, being out of town, I dont often try...but still.) The odds are crazy now with its being digital. If ONLY 1000 people tried for 25 seats only 2.5% of the entrants are getting lucky.

I've been trying, weekly,for Mean Girls since it began. Always multiple performances. Nothing. Not once! So I'm convinced that they really are mean girls who run their own lottery and they just don't like me!

From Lucky Seat, I won Kinky Boots and the Book of Mormon. I think its harder to win through them though, because the shows they offer are more popular (Ex: Hadestown, Moulin Rouge).

I won Mean Girls, Frozen, and Book of Mormon from Lucky Seat. The seats for Book of Mormon and Mean Girls were incredible. The seat for Frozen...not so much. I was front row ORCH extreme right. I saw the dress transformation (main thing I wanted to see), but I missed a lot of young Anna and Elsa and anything that happened on the right side of the stage. Luckily a lot of the show takes place in the center. But I was extremely close to Caissie, her cape was practically on top of me!

I won Kinky Boots 2 days before closing and missed the email. I think that’s the only thing I’ve won off of Lucky Seat. I enter every week I’m not traveling for Mean Girls, Frozen and now Hadestown.

I’ve won quite a few of the direct lotteries and Broadway Direct lotteries.

I won tickets to Anastasia on tour in Orlando through Lucky Seat. In the past I’ve won the lotto for Falsettos (Broadway) & Hamilton tour (Tampa).

Similarly, I have won Book of Mormon, Mean Girls and Frozen. Book of Mormon seats were excellent (center ORCH)...Frozen not so good. Couldn’t attend Mean Girls....so don’t know
