does anyone here know of a pen with big tip to fill bet slips easier with one stroke? it turns out some of the bet slip printing software products are not so perfect. I use Lotto Pro's. I had to make my own adjustments but then again everytime the printer "sucks" the bet slips for printing it gets out of place. Now  I think it's the printer!

    Stationary store, get some Sharpie Med Point black pen like Permanent Markers (not the dollar store imitations).  Store tip down so the ink is at the working end when you're ready to use it.  I prefer the Fine Point and make two lines one down one up like a closed V, don't have to fill the box, better not to have the ink bleed outside the box, also mark tickets on something you don't mind the ink getting on from the back of the play slip as it bleeds through, though once dry never comes off most things like the plastic front of your computer so be careful.  Never had a complaint about Sharpie marked play slips in Florida.

      Calligraphy pens are great. They have an angle and are flat and come in difference width.

        If using a marker, it makes a difference what state you're in.

        If it's Tennessee, make sure you don't have any other playslips below the one you're marking or you'll be marking about 35 slips at a time because the new  playslips are like toilet paper.

          I like a BIC or Sharpie fine point permanent marker but they do bleed though on what ever is below the play slip being marked.  You only have to touch the center of the square lightly as the bleeding will finish filling out the square.

                  I Agree! I use a Bic permanent marker.  Works great, just don't have anything of value under the playslip!

                    If you post your "predictions" too late for someone to jump in their car and go play it, who are you helping??

                    Players complain members predict too many combinations to be of any help?  Besides, most predictors couldn't afford to play all of what they post so I assume they're predicting for bragging rights not to help anyone.

                      I guess we are old school Tiggs, If this becomes an issue, I am most certain the government will form an oversight committee, lobbyist will rear their ugly heads, and we will need to spend surplus money to study, print pamplets, hire helpers, and eventually fill the playslips out for inky challenged players. Its only fair.

                        It's not a matter of being hard but of preference, I like using a marker.  If one was looking for easy, they could just buy a quick pick and skip using a play slip at all.  I don't like even using a pencil to doodle, I prefer a gel ink pen with a 0.7mm point.

                            Those flat pencils carpenters use are very good also.  They have a wide, flat lead in them.

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

                            You never know when you will get another hit.

                              Isn't there a cutoff window between prediction posting and the drawing time?
