The MATIC sale will begin on April 24th, 2019 at 8 AM (UTC) and run until April 26th 2:00 PM (UTC)

Adversaries of the new format argued that the lottery format - which will require participants to hold a certain amount of BNB in order to be in for a chance at ‘winning’ token allocation – would exclude smaller investors and those who don’t hold BNB.
