Texts and emails will go out to the lucky winners around 11 a.m. and, if you get picked, you'll have until 4 p.m. on the day you're alerted to pay $10 each for pair of tickets. Dubbed "HamApp" by the show's creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda, the app allows hopefuls to enter daily lottery drawings for the show. With different features for fans to use, it allows them to continue the show in an engaging way even after it is long over. Those times vary slightly for the opening weekend: you can enter for a chance to win tickets to today's performance as late as noon. It also allows fans to buy exclusive show merchandise and enter its $10 ticket lottery in Los Angeles (New York and Chicago lotteries will be offered on the app on August 22 and 29, respectively).
So, how you score yourself one of these tickets?
When interacting with friends - and fellow Hamilton fans - there are shareable stickers that you can send within your conversations. If you win, you'll be notified at 11am the day before the show. The app also contains a merchandise store and an exclusive Hamilton news source with videos from Lin-Manuel Miranda.

In addition to those feature, the app will soon also launch ticket access and interactive karaoke tracks.
