To redeem a Surprise Special Draw Set, go to Draw and click on the Surprise Special Draw Set banner. In the Use Ticket tab, the exact expiration date and time of your ticket is listed.

- Surprise Special Draw Set differ from the Beginner's Draw Set in a number of ways.
- The Beginner's Draw Set can be exchanged for any character weapon or summon available when your account was created, not from what is currently available. This means that Surprise Special Draw Sets include more recently released characters, while the Beginner's Draw Set does not.
- The Beginner's Draw Set returns every month for 48 hours until it is purchased, after which it never appears again. Surprise Special Draw Sets are each separate, meaning that any player can always purchase a Surprise Special Draw Set whenever it becomes available for purchase, no matter how many Surprise Special Draw Sets that player has bought in the past.
- While a couple of Surprise Special Draw Sets in the past have not followed this rule, by and large, Cygames has declared that even if a Surprise Special Draw Set is purchased when limited holiday-themed characters are available, those limited characters will not be available to pick using a Surprise Special Draw Set.
- Since the start of 2018, Surprise Special Draw Sets have also excluded characters and summons released since the previous Surprise Special Draw Set. If you are interested in ticketing a relatively new character, you can check whether or not they are available via the redemption instructions above.
For recommendations on what to choose for your Surprise Special Draw Set, refer to the SSR Character Tier List.
