After the drawings are downloaded and installed, you win see a window similar to the one below.
If you don't like the automatic feature or maybe your internet isn't working... You can still add new drawings manually as shown below.

This window is easy and fast to use. It is very similar to the Add Keeper Window. Entering the numbers is easy. You just type in the lottery numbers in the little round balls shown above. The red ball is for the Powerball (or Mega Ball of playing Mega Millions).
To enter the Date, click on the little date icon on the left side (shown above). A bigger calendar will appear as (shown below). To select a date, just click the HIGHLIGHTED Date.

For your date selection, you are allowed to select (Wednesday or Saturday for Powerball) (Tuesday or Friday for Mega Millions) as these are the only two days that the drawings are held for each of the two games. The date you selected will be displayed in the title bar at the top of the window as shown.
After all information is entered, click the Save button.
