I want to make a printer machine that is attached to my computer...I feed the program a txt of numbers and the printer machine will fill out the powerball slips for me.

The reason I want to do this is to save time, and allow me to play a greater number of numbers.

 I can write the software, but the rest I am not sure about. I think the easiest solution would be to get some sort of printer that does this.,

 

Any one know a WaY ? Or would want to work with me to develop this?

    i had the same idea a while back. i was told you should be able to scan a ticket and put the scanned ticket into excel. From Microsoft word or whatever program you use to print forms from create a custom form from the scanned play slip. test it on plain paper.

      I think Expert Lotto allows you to print PB tickets!!

        Several of the commercially available lottery programs have a slip printing feature which allows you to set-up almost any printer to do that so you probably can do it on any ink jet or laser printer.  Some states have a rules against using tickets printed this way and I don't know why.

         * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

          i don't see why they would care how you filled out their play slips as long as you don't print outside of the lines in the spaces they provide.

          in other words you would load your play slips in the printer the same as you would an envelope.

            Lotto Pro 2005 will print bet slips on Ink Jet Printers. I don't know if this is possible with Laser or other types of printers.

              i see the software lets you print from its program, but I want to load these from a txt file.....

              so far none of them do this ....playslip pal is the closest one but cant find it available..

              I guess i'll just have to give up on this as it would be too time consuming otherwise.
