First appearance on Saturday, April. 16, the new housing lottery system had a fatal flaw. Players were assigned numbers based on the order in which they bid on the house. However, an error meant that the number 0 could win the lottery, meaning that even if a single player were to bid on the house, it would not mean they had won the house.

As a result, players received the devastating news that they had lost their house, that they were the only bidder to a non-existent player. The fix will essentially do two things. If you were the only bidder and lost to 0, the lottery result will be fixed. Or if you’re part of a larger bid pool, enter the lottery instead.
