Each States Play-Slips are programmed into the program one-at-a-time
Specifically for that State. When you install "The Lottery
and your State is listed in the Print Windows list of States, you
should not need to change any settings.
However, due to the fact that there are so many different kinds of
printers and drivers that make them work, some printers and their
drivers interpret the input differently and thus the output is not
the same as the desired printed results obtained on the printer used
for testing this program. In this case, some adjustments may
I have added
an option to adjust the off-set of printing from top-to-bottom and
left-to-right for each section of the Play-Slip for each State that
is programmed into the program. Find this setting under Tab 3
of the Settings Window.
Help on these settings can be found in the help files located within
NOTE ALSO: The Play Slips
sometimes (more often than not) vary in the way they are cut and the
way they are printed. With this in mind, after making changes
to the Printer Off-Sets as listed above, print several Play Slips to
find a happy medium between the off-set values and the variations of
the play slips.
Reset Settings to Default: If you get your settings so out of
whack that you can't get your printing even close. You can click this
button and restore the Print Settings for the selected State back the way
they were when you first installed the program.
Space between each
section or play block.: Lowering this number (i.e. -100 to -110.6 )
will move each printed section closer together. In contrast, raising the
number will add more space between each printed play section. See below for
information on lowering and raising negative numbers.
This was new for 2013 - When printing the Play-Slips, a number is printed

H-Align & V-Adjust: Allows you to position the
exact location that the Play-Slips numbers will be printed on your States
play-Slips so they are not printed over anything that is already on the
slips. H-Align will move the number left or right and
V-Adjust will move the number up or down on the slips. Remember
that negative values can be entered by using a minus sign like -21
Changing these values will adjust the Horizontal & Vertical alignment of the
printed PowerPlay Blocks on the Play-Slip. NOTE: Not all States
have the PowerPlay option. If this is the case for your State then you
will not see this setting.
PayOut Choices Box:
PayOut Choice Box: This Settings only show for some States. Thus
your State may show this setting and it may not.
These States may
