A Singaporean man netted S$250(RM866) by wagering on the initial four digits of his queue number for the Taylor Swift The Eras concert.
Man shares his experience online
On TikTok, the user who goes by the handle “@its_all_marc”, detailed his unique experience on the social media site.
He was part of the massive wave of Swift’s fans, known as Swifties, that eagerly tried to purchase tickets during the UOB presale for The Eras Tour on July 5, 2023.
Given the queue number hit a staggering million, his relatively early queue number 53875 placed him close to the front.
Managed to get the ticket after all
Despite successfully choosing his seats, his plans fell apart when he attempted to finalize the purchase but was faced with an “error rate exceeded” notification.
Left with no choice, he reentered the queue, joining a million other eager Swiftie fans.
In the comment section, he confessed to another fan that he finally decided to quit, stating “I gave up haha there were hardly any tickets left and it seemed the queue was no longer moving. 😭 But, good luck to you!!”
However, in another response to Mothership, Marc shared that he eventually got the tickets.
Wins RM866 in 4D using the last four digits of his queue number
Possibly in a flash of creativity, he chose to gamble on the first four digits of his queue number – 5387.

As per his TikTok video, this stroke of luck bagged him a tidy sum of S$250(RM866).
At the comment section, another netizen also shared that she would have also won 4D if she used the queue number to buy the lottery.
Another netizen, inspired by the OP, also shared that he asked his father to buy as his queue number was 4 digit.
