Everyone who has registered for the 2019 draw will be entered onto a numbered list. In addition, everyone applying for the second time will be added twice. Those applying for the third time will be added three times and so on. The master list will then be randomized.
During the live broadcast an app from Random.org will be used to set an integer. Then a random number will be drawn and compared to the corresponding number from the master list. The “lucky” name will then be moved over to the confirmed entry list that can be found here (link to be posted). The process will be repeated 231 times plus 40 times for the waitlist.
