That’s all there is to it. There are a few things that should be noted. The email you use does not have to be the one you used with you Harry Potter: Wizards Unite game account. However, each game account can only register once, so make sure the email you do use is easily accessible. Lastly, you will not receive a confirmation email about your entry. If you’re not sure, the Events page you accessed by pressing the Events icon from the Suitcase menu in-game will tell you if you entered or not.
