Hi everyone,
     I am new here and still exploring the site, but loving it so far!

I play the Super Lotto in California and spend hours every week filling out the cards. I tried a sharpie, but it seems the machines are hit and miss when reading those cards. Now I use a medium ball point pen and I draw a circle around the numbers instead of filling in the mark completely.  What is everybody using to fill out the lotto cards?

    My personal tool of choice is a simple black-ink ballpoint pen. However, there are some excellent software solutions to do the job faster for you. In my personal opinion, "Lotto-Pro" is one of the best programs out there for doing this.

        I use a Sharpie fine point permanent marker.  I just touch the square with the numbers I want to play and I don't leave a play slip under the one I'm marking because sometime there's bleed through which will make the play slip underneath unusable.

          I fill my slips out with a pen.

              I use a pencil and fill them in like a scrantron sheet.

                I just downloaded that program.  Can you mark a Mega Millions sheet via printer?

                  Yes, you can mark playslips for any U.S. lottery, and many in foreign countries also.
