The frenzy over Edmonton Oilers 50/50 tickets continued Friday, with so many fans wanting to purchase tickets that the website crashed.
Daily Hive tried to access it around 5:30 pm MT Friday, but received an error message. The jackpot currently sits at just over $5-million.
Even with no fans physically in the arena, hockey enthusiasts are still showing their support by purchasing tickets to win the in-game lottery prize.

Tickets can be purchased on the Edmonton Oilers website — if you can get through, that is.

The Edmonton #Oilers 50/50 only at $5.2 Million. Even though the site was spitting some geolocation error code, I used a different browser to by-pass it. Pray I win half of this amount. Keeoing fingers crossed. #YEG #NHL #Oilers5050 pic.twitter.com/8WeZJwAHxO
