How to resell a lottery ticket?

Postby RevDusty » Wed Mar 14, 2012 5:09 pm

I have a chance to buy a ticket from someone who one the lottery and now can't go. (Face value, btw).

Has the procedure been announced as to how to transfer the ticket to me, so I will receive it in June (or whenever it's mailed)?

The FAQ says that info is forthcoming, and I didn't see it addressed on this board, although I may have missed it.

Anyone know?

If you want a direct transfer, you need to wait until June when the tickets are actually shipped out. Until then, you can only sell back tickets to the STEP program.

The hard ticket will be mailed to the person who bought the ticket and they will then mail it to you. It's their ticket and they can do what they want with it. I would recommend that it be sent to you insured and with delivery confirmation.

Bummer...I was hoping that the change could be put in the system now (or soon) and the deal closed. That just entails more waiting...and wondering...

This has always been the case with tickets ordered. This year they are not being sent until June, so that will delay you getting it in your hands. Other than that, nothing has changed.

What you can do is request the person to change his ticket to a Will Call ticket, then you can do a name transfer procedure on the will call ticket.

Thanks, Boris, not a bad idea...but I'm really hoping to avoid what I assume will be a long, long line.

Guess I'll just have to do what I can.

Now, lemur, you know the llc will video record the line and watch it over and over, laughing at the frustrations of the poor duped burners paying $4028 a ticket and spending 38 hours in line, while they roll in the money and have djs perform oral sex on them.

Just like every year.

I should've taken a bit more time because I forgot to imagine them rolling in money while getting the oral sex from djs. ePlaya can be so complicated. ha

I had this nervewracking thought of a scenario where someone promises their ticket to more than one person and a shit storm ensues in June. A scenario I wish on no one, BTW.

I shouldn't be surprised that my simple request for ticketing information turned into a scenario of the LLC rolling in money while receiving orla sex dispensed by DJs.

This will taint my entire arrival.

Thanks, Crypto!

Taint? I'd say it'd enhance it.

If memory serves me correctly, the original purchaser can change the delivery address for the physical ticket (http://tickets2.burningman.com/shipto ). If this option has been deployed, consider having the original purchaser change the delivery address to your own. You will still be waiting until June to receive the ticket. There may also be issues if the recipient has to sign for the ticket(s). Suggest the original purchaser review the confirmation e-mail for any terms or conditions if you elect to go this route.

Remember that it was always intended that tickets would not be transferable in any form besides the STEP program until June in order to fight the scalper menace. Who knows if even that will change.

Having waited in various length gate lines for the last 13 years, I'm fairly well-versed in what's involved and the effect it has. I was thinking of dong early arrival anyway to not have to deal with the Monday madness.

I'd say that was bollocks to be honest - we waited all of 10 minutes to collect our box office ticket in 2011... Will Call is not as shitty as you might think

Last year's sellout resulted in an unusually low percentage of will call tickets in total.

That said, the ticketing team is planning and staffing up for much heavier traffic through will call this year. Things should be manageable, just make sure that the driver of your vehicle is aware so he/she can make sure you're in the proper lane as you come through.

And that's to the right again this year? or have no decisions been announced?
