Games tickets to be sold by lottery

The announcement comes days after sales – meant to be on a first-come, first-served basis – were suspended last Tuesday when the booking system crashed as a result of overwhelming demand on the first day, China Daily reported.

Ticket applications will be accepted from December 10 to 30.

But the organisers said those who registered last Tuesday still have priority in purchasing tickets.

The 1.6 million tickets sold during the first stage between April and August were allocated by lottery, the report said. The second stage of the sales had about 1.85 million tickets on sale through websites, a hotline and designated Bank of China branches.
