    Google "Lottoman help" should do it.

      A readable copy of the LottoMan's manual and or help file(s) would be welcomed, but much better if it is on plain text file(s) and or as .RTF (Rich Text Format) kind of files, not as document files nor as Windows Help files, for some reason I can't read them in that way.

      If not, then O.K. as I really don't have to use that program, I am more interested on the program's documents and on the workings of the program than on the program itself, to see if I can learn something new of value.

      I don't need the program itself, just it's manual or documentation in a way that I can read it:

      As plain text files (.TXT) and or as .RTF files.

      Or posted somewhere from where I can read and or copy them from.

      Thanks.

        I didn't remember right as it has been a long time since I tried this:

        I can read O.K. the LottoMan.HLP file, but not the Pick3.Doc and the Tutorial.Doc files as they are Word for Windows 2.0 files.

        I am able to read a portion of those 2 files, but not the complete files. 

        On the pick3 doc I recovered more of the text than on the tutorial doc.

        Maybe I recovered enough, but it is a little hard to read, and portions are gibberish such as :

          Try using Wordpad. Its part of Windows.

            LANTERN, I saved the Lottoman tutorial as plain text. Where can I send it? If you can read it I will save the other word files as text and send them to you.

              By the way, K. Scott Piel is back after some many years of being gone, he wants to make another program, an online workout.

              Thanks again!

                When ever I see players asking for instructions for older lottery software it makes me wonder if lottery software is like some wines that get better with age.

                What is it that old lottery programs can do that they couldn't do when they were new?

                  As I recall Lottoman was by Scott Piel who played Mr. Lucky for Lotto World Magazine.  He sold it to an outfit that was going to "make it work".  They renamed it "The Winning Ticket" and updated the appearence but not the prediction routines or wheeling.  They released a beta and vanished. 

                  There are a couple of ways older lotto software appeals. 

                  First of all Lottoman wasn't a failure as much as it changed hands to new owners who failed it.  It did have wins in its time and some unique features such as brute force wheel construction and vectors.

                  We players often don't give our new software a real work out.  We back test a few months and if nothing happens we toss it back on the shelf.  Sometimes we had no idea how to use it, though just as often I've had software win first day out of the box, until I learned how to use it for the following draw, then it stopped winning.

                  We get a new idea, strategy, theory, and seek a software that was built to work with that method.  Many times I've dug through boxed to find a floppy with a program I half remember doing what I need.

                  Hope springs eternal we are now smarter, wiser and will figure out how to make the software win this time.

                    LottoMatrix3 was also abandoned, I guess because of hacks, cracks or whatever they are called, people were using it for free, but the program was and still is very good, but it was made so no newer games (states and daily draws) could be added to it and the draws were to be updated online from the program's site which of course is no more, but they can be entered by hand, but as I said, no newer pick 3 games can be added to it, it seems to me that it was the most advanced pick 3 filters program of all even for many years after it was abandoned, while not the best no more it is still very good, not just because of its filters, but also because of its stats.

                    No need for people to try to get it if you don't have it, you can instead use newer programs and or workouts. 

                    It is too bad that its programmer no longer seems to be making lottery programs and that he didn't make a pick 4 version of the LottoMatrix3, at least not that I know of, he invented a filter that it is unique to his program, the:

                    3 X 3 Tic Tac Toe pick 3 matrix filter. 

                    I am not saying that the filter as he used it was very good, only that it was unique to his program.

                    A very good program anyway, even if one uses only the other "regular" filters.

                    Its stats are also very good, this program is still one of the best pick 3 filter programs, too bad that it was not made more advanced yet and with automatic or semi automatic prediction.

                    Now, you might want to use this program, don't, just use one of the newer alternatives. 

                    While this programmer is long gone, Mr Scott Piel (LottoMan) is now back.

                      "We players often don't give our new software a real work out.  We back test a few months and if nothing happens we toss it back on the shelf."

                      I agree but often it's also the programmers who don't stick with software until something other than attracting new sales happens.  That's the reason there are so many old programs that are no longer supported.
                       
                      A programmer writes software that people will buy and support it as long as it generates sales, once sales stops he moves on.  Lottery players on the other hand buy software expecting it to generate winners and if it doesn't they move on.

                      Software is only a tool and players can't make it do something it wasn't designed to do.  Only programmers can redesign and update it to do more and they general do if during so will generate new sales but as some point players will stop buying updated copies of the same software if they can't see the improvements and move on.  Thus the cycle continues.

                        Well, I still use lottoman software and have been using it for at least 5-6 years.  The software is doing fine but you have to do something else, too.  Using a software program by itself to me is defeating.  I actually have at least 10 programs but I only use 1-2 of them everyday.  I still don't know everything that lottoman does but I like the ease of using the program.  Once it is set-up, you just have to keep the stats up.  I talked to Scot Piel and he is thinking of making a new program..(I don't know how he can improve on this one or even if he can get the rights back). I use both vtracs and numbers now.  Sometimes, the darn thing will give me the number.

                        If you know your number is going to hit, have patience and then KILL IT!

                        You never know when you will get another hit.
