There's a digital lottery that happens for every performance of 'Hamilton' in Tampa.

Want to go see Hamilton for $10? Of course you do.

The Straz Center, along with Hamilton producer Jeffrey Seller, announced this morning the Straz will sell 40 $10 tickets for each performance when the show opens next month. 

Here's how it's going to work:

• The Straz will hold a digital lottery for each performance, starting two days before the performance. For example, the digital lottery for the Feb. 12 performance's $10 tickets will begin on Feb. 10. All lotteries start at 11 a.m. Each lottery will end at 9 a.m. the day before the performance.

• Download the official Hamilton app (available for iOS and Android; use the Apple App Store or Google Play Store) or register for the lottery at the Hamilton lottery website.

• Everyone who enters, whether they win or not, will be notified at about 11 a.m. the day before the performance, via email and/or text message.

• Winners must buy their tickets — up to two per winner — by 4 p.m. the day before the show. Winners can only buy the $10 tickets using the link in the email notifying them they've won. If ya don't buy the tickets by 4 p.m. the day before the show, you don't get the tickets.

• Tickets are non-transferable; you must bring a valid photo ID matching the name of the winner to the Straz box office's will call window to get your tickets.
