Fort Saskatchewan has come out unscathed in the fight against ticket bots.
 
The Alberta Government recently put a ban on ticket bots, which buy large amounts of tickets to resell for a higher price.
 
“Nobody wins with a ticket bot. It’s one of those where somebody is trying to make a quick dime on reselling a product that’s already currently available to the public,” said Josh Gennings, the Shell Theatre supervisor. “I think it’s a good thing that they nipped that in the bud. We want to make sure that all products are available to the public at the original price.”
 
The Shell Theatre in Fort Saskatchewan sells tickets online and has held major performances in the past.
 
“To this point we have not had an issue,” said Gennings. “We hope it would never happen to any of our patrons. We’ve got a great ticket provider in Ticketpro and in that way they watch very carefully for these types of occurrences to make sure that they don’t happen to anybody.”
 
Josh Gennings recommends checking out the original sites and prices when purchasing tickets and to always be cautious of people selling tickets online.
