There have been some concerns regarding ticketing for the 10th live as they’re currently using L-Tike instead of the usual e+ or Ticket Pia for lotteries, but fret not, we’ll help you figure things out. A few aspects of the ticketing were made easier, although they did make the ticket pickup method a little more annoying.
First up, out of the 6 CDs that can be used to apply for the lottery, only Live The@ter Harmony 9 and 10 are out, so if you have those in hand you can start applying for the tickets. There are actually two sets of codes in the Live The@ter Harmony CDs, one set being the code for the game SRs AND the release event, while the other set with 16 digits is the one you want for this lottery.
Go to the application site and click on 「同意する」 to enter the site as seen in the following screenshot.
Then a screen will prompt you to enter your code and make sure you enter the first 12 digits of the code into the top bar, and the remaining 4 digits into the second bar.In the next screen, you’ll have to input your details, including the payment method. We’ve received reports that they accept foreign credit cards, but each card can only be used to apply once, if you have already used your card for one code, you will not be able to use it for another code. Do not worry however as 店舗払い or shop payment in Lawson is also acceptable.
Choosing credit card would automatically cause L-Tike to charge your card after winning, however if you choose shop payment, you’ll receive an email with a code that you will need to pay using Lawson’s Loppi machine. Make sure you don’t delete this email!
The address you input will be the delivery address of the ticket, so make sure you input a real address. Ask a friend if you have one living in Japan, and if not, wait for us as we’re trying to plan something out for collective ticket applications.
The application period ends on 10 May 2015 (Sun) at 23:59 JST (UTC+9) and the lottery results will be announced on 14 May 2015 at 13:00 JST. If you choose shop payment, you have until 26 May 2015 at 21:00 JST to finish paying for your tickets.
Assuming that you are currently NOT living in Japan, you’ll NEED to ask someone to help you by going to Lawson and paying for the tickets. If you have friends in Japan, ask them if they have any Lawson available near them as more remote areas will not have them all over the place unlike the bigger cities. Make sure you arrange payments with people as soon as possible after you win the lottery as you don’t want to risk forgetting about it.
