It's now easier than ever to enter the 'Hamilton' lottery thanks to the show's new app

 

Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of the smash-hit musical “Hamilton,” announced on Friday the release of the “HamApp” for iPhone and Android, which will allow users to enter the lottery for $US10 tickets to the show more easily than ever. 

Previously, aspiring #Ham4Ham lottery-winners would need to visit the ‘Hamilton’ website every day and fill out a form to enter. Now, those with the app will be able to enter with just a tap.

In addition to the lottery, the app will feature Hamilton-themed content, including digital stickers, a merchandise store offering exclusive items, as well as a “#HamCam” which will allow users to take themed photos using augmented reality. 

“We are constantly exploring ways to allow more people to experience Hamilton in its many forms,” “Hamilton” producer Jeffrey Seller said in a press release. “This mobile app is designed to do just that — provide exciting new ways for fans to interact with and gain access to the musical they love.”

Miranda promised more content to come in a video posted to his Twitter account this morning.

The app lottery is currently live for the national tour in Los Angeles, and will be available for New York and Chicago on August 22 and 29, respectively.

You can download it from the App Store and Google Play
