Uniregistry Lottery Ticket for .CHRISTMAS

ICANN has opened their ticket sales for the lottery for new TLD applicants earlier today. Ticket sales end on December 17th at 11am PST.

Due to the lottery laws in California, the tickets have to purchased for $100 in person. Originally ICANN had proposed a digital archery system, where applicants would provide a target time and whoever clicked a link closest to their target time would be processed first, but decided to proceed with a lottery instead due to protest from the community. You can review the full ICANN rules for the lottery draw here.

The picture shown above shows the lottery ticket for Uniregistry‘s .CHRISTMAS application and was posted by Brett Fausett on Twitter.
