How to Print Powerball & Mega Millions Play-Slip Tickets

This page explains how The Lottery Picker™ 2018 can print your Powerball play-slips as well as how easily it can print your Mega Millions play-slips.

NEW!
This program can now Re-Print certain Play-Slips from a large batch of Play-Slips that
were cut long/short from the factory. Read more about this NEW function Here.

 

You get to this window by clicking the RED Ticket Photo of the toolbar icon to open the printing window icon from the toolbar of the Main Window.
From this window (Shown Above) is where you make your settings to print your lottery Play-Slips

This is the (Powerball) Print Window for North Carolina.
Your print windows may look differently according to the State & Game you have selected.

Place the Play-Slips into the printer with the face of the slip facing toward you, and the top facing into the printer as shown below. Align them to the right side of the printer with the paper guide up against them like you would envelops. ALSO, see Printer Settings

When you open this window, all your Keeper numbers from the currently loaded Keeper file are displayed with check boxes next to each (see photo at left).  All numbers that are checked will be printed.  Just under the Keeper check boxes you will see a number that tell you how many Keeper numbers you currently have selected to print.  In the above examples shown in the bottom left, it says "11 Selected": Photo of the Powerball Ticket Print Window

Photo of the Multi-Draw selection section of the Powerball ticket printing window (Powerball Print Window (top example)) The next box over called "Multidraw" has a collection of round option buttons within it.  As you may already know, in most States, Powerball will allow you to buy tickets good for a number of future drawings.  This is the box where you pick how many future drawings you would like your selected numbers to be valid for.  In the example above (Top Photo), "4" is selected which means when these play-slips are printed, all the numbers bought will be good for 4 future Powerball drawings.
This option is available for most States but not all, and the number of selections will vary.

This screenshot explains how you would calibrate your printer settings for printing the Mega Millions Play-Slips (Calibrate and Test Printer Output) If you check the box "Print test slip" then click the Print button, the program will print your Play-Slip, filling in each block in the slip.  If the printing alignment is off a little for your printer, just click on the link "Calibrate Printer" as shown to the left.  This will open up the settings window where you can adjust the Vertical and Horizontal alignment of the printer output.  By default, printing is individually calibrated for each State using our test printers before the updates are released.  However, some calibration may be required due to the vast array of printers and their respective proprietary drivers on the market.

Photo showing the PowerPlay selection to mark when printing Powerball tickets (Powerball Print Window (top example)) The check box just to the right is the Power Play? option (MegaPlier? option when playing Mega Millions).  If you select this, the printed Play-Slips will be marked with the PowerPlay (or MegaPlier) option.  As you may already know, selecting either of these options gives you the chance to multiply your winnings.

This screenshot shows how many Mega Millions Play-Slips you need to print based on your selections (Both Print Windows above) Just under the PowerPlay check box is a box with a RED number in it as shown at left here.  This is the number of Play-Slips you will need to put into the printer to print all the numbers that are selected on the left.  This will change according to the number of numbers you are selecting because only 5 numbers can be printed on each/most play slips. The examples above shows 11 numbers checked and ready to print so the program has calculated the number of Play-Slips needed will be 3 when playing NC Powerball.

Screenshot showing cost to play Mega Millions based on your print ticket selections (Both Print Windows above) In the lower middle part of the window in RED is the "Cost to play:" area.  When changing any of the above selections, this amount will change to reflect the cost for to you for play a given set of numbers, how may drawings you opt to play, and whether or not you selected the PowerPlay (or MegaPlier) option.  In the TOP "Powerball" example above, it will cost you $132.00 to play 11 numbers good for 4 drawings and selecting the PowerPlay option. The cost without the "PowerPlay option selected would have been $88.00 (at the time of this writing).

This screenshot shows the button to click when you're ready to print your Mega Millions Play-Slips (Both Print Windows above) When you have all your options set the way that you want to play just click the print button at the bottom. Or click Close to abort the operation.

Screenshot showing cost to play Mega Millions based on your print ticket selections (Both Print Windows above) The Drop-Down List-Box titled; "Select State Slips to Print".  This is where you select the State from which you get your Play-Slips.  Most States Play-Slips differ a little in there size and format.  As I test and confirm compatibility of printing with the different States Play-Slips, I add them to this list for you to choose from.  I do personal FREE upgrades in which the benefit will be for many.  If you find that your State is not listed in this collection of States for the particular game (Powerball or Mega Millions), just send me some play-slips (100 or so ) from your state and I will make a personal upgrade for your State.  You can check before you order to see if your State is setup for printing the Play-Slips Here.
