According to Twitter, lottery emails have started going out. Reedpop seems to have taken "by midnight" very seriously making us wait until after 8 p.m. lol

They said if you won you would hear by midnight but I got a winning email at 2:30am. Wonder Woman Bloodlines panel. I get this weird disorganized vibe from NYCC this year. From them not really explaining the Legacy lottery that great to issues with entering the lottery where people had problems with all sorts of different browsers and now sending out winning emails much later then they said just feels more disorganized then previous years.

What's with the reports that the few people that did win, and even fewer who won multiple lotteries, had their wins on the same day.

Did anyone win lotteries on different days?

Apparently, if you're a legacy fan who entered the lottery last week and didn't get chosen, you can enter again during the regular period.
How do you enter again?

Won 2. Panel and exclusive for thrusday

The system is broken... everyone one who reported 2 wins (twitter, facebook, forums, etc), both wins are the same day. No one has more then 2 wins. Likelyhood that someone would win multiple or different days is tremendous and the fact that no one has, means the system is broken. This problem results in less opportunities for those that did win and who knows how it effect those that didn't.

It bugs me that they have been doing this for several years now and it keeps getting worse. If i knew winning on 1 day eliminated you from winning another, I would have picked differently.

Why are a good number of people thinking that "Legacy Fans" are supposed to be able to enter the lottery again?

Because of this tweet from NYCC: “(2/2)—If you don't receive a winning email by midnight tonight, then you didn't win and you can enter again starting tomorrow (Tuesday 9/24) for a second chance. Good luck!”  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

NYCC really loves to release slightly different info across Twitter, their website and emails to add to confusion  ::)

I am going for four days and only won 1 thing on Friday. My girlfriend only won one thing as well. This lottery definitely seems different than previous years.

If someone added my email as one of their +1s and they won a panel, should I have gotten an email? Because I did not.
