reprinting Mega Millions play-slips.
News: May 22, 2012 - With this new version of The Lottery Picker,
comes the ability to Re-Print certain Play-Slips from a batch of
slips that were previously printed.
Read more on the initial Play-Slip printing here.
Play-Slips sometimes (more often than not) vary in the way they are cut
and the way they are printed. To verify this, take a few Slips and
stand them on there ends tapping them until all bottoms are even and
touching the table. Notice that some of the tops are cut to
different lengths. This length difference isn't too much but
considering that the blocks are so close together on the slips and that
this program prints the Slips in exactly the same place each and every
time, you may need to re-print a slip or two. (Some of my customer print
more than 300 slips at a time, so coding into the program the ability to
re-Print slips that were cut short/long was a vital and a much needed
function of this program).
These production flaws may sometimes make it necessary to re-print some
slips. Say you printed 500 Play-Slips and eight slips didn't print
so well (I have customers that print this many and more).
You would need to re-print just these Slips and not the others... The
Lottery Picker can NOW do just that!
This is the (Powerball) Print Window for South Carolina after
printing the Play-Slips.|
Your print windows may look differently
according to the State & Game you have selected. To see what your
State looks like in this window,
After printing your
Play-Slips, you will notice a new GREEN
button on the window as show within the red circle to the left.

button will setup the print window for re-printing certain Slips

Each Play-Slip printed with this program is numbered in the top
left hand corner of the slip. This number makes it easy to
identify and select which Play-Slip needs to be Re-Printed and
can be selected from the check-boxes as shown below.
At this point, two buttons are disabled on the window. The
main "Print" button (bottom of window) & the new "Re-Print
My Selections" print button (upper part of window).|
The new "Re-Print My Selections" print button will become
active as soon as you check one of the check-boxes of the slip
numbers you wish to reprint. The main "Print"
button will stay disabled as long as you are in this
"RE-PRINTING" mode until you click the "DONE" button.
The Slips you first printed are shown in the white box on the
left side with the corresponding number of the Play-Slip shown
in RED.To Re-print one
or more slips, Check the check-boxes with the same number as the
slip number you wish to re-print. The Slips you first
printed have a number on each of them in the upper left corner.

Since each State is coded into the program
individuality one-at-a-time, The Lottery Picker comes to you
already calibrated and setup to print your States Play-Slips.
However, due to the fact that there are so many different kinds of
printers and drivers that make them work. Your printing may not
line up exactly right on the play slips and may need some final
adjustment. I have added an option to adjust the off-set
of printing from top-to-bottom and left-to-right.
