Nice update. Though, some days the game skips the lottery phase for whatever reason.
So it's not just me! I've had this as well.
For reasons unknown - or possibly completely flukey - if you go to the controls and click on the clock when it's in the GUARD phase (so it transports you to the bed), and then select the bed, I've found I never get this skipping. However if I manually wander over to the bed during the guard phase and sleep, then occasionally this happens.
Like I said, could be coincidence - but so far I've avoided the freaky skip by doing that.
