This has probably been asked before.  Does anyone know of a "good" bet slip printing program?  Filling out the bet slips is the worse part of playing the lottery.  (Unless you go easy pick)

    Truffing

    A couple of years ago I bought LottoPro 2000. At the time I just wanted to see how someone put a Lotto program together and it looked the best in terms of user interface that I could find on the web.

    I got to know the terminology from this program and still refer to it. (I wonder how John went ahout this. It comes with all the worlds Lotto histories and you can link from Access to all the Wheels to see how they are made up. I don't think it will have much bearing on you winning the big one but it has an excellent ticket printer setup. John Lake I think is the programmer and I don't know whether he makes oodles from it or not. But I think he should be congratulated on putting out the most friendly to use system with all the bells and whistles.

    I had a go myself at doing this Ticket Writing by adapting the label wizard in Access. It works pretty good but one of the frustrating things I found was that the Lotto Companies don't make all the game boxes the same size. The amount of work involved in trying to set something up where you had control over the location of where all the strokes go didn't particularly appeal.

    If someone has some good programming methods here I am all ears.

    Regards

      I've never computer printed a lottery play slip in my life, but I hear Lottery Director prints play slips.  As the demo is fully functional and doesn't expire just you can't enter new draws, you might be able to use it for this purpose and the price is right, demo being free and all.

          Checked out Lottery Director this morning.  The only problem with printing bet slips is my printer is not supported.  Looks like Lottery Directory is written in DOS?  I could be wrong..........
