Is it that hard to mark a number with a regular pen or pencil?...This is to silly...

If you have 50 slips to fill up, yes. With thin pencils or pen it take atleast a few strokes to mark the box properly. I want the one stroke method. I guess a big-tipped pen should work.

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

    Yes, there is.  Cutoff times for posting predictions are an hour before the drawings and most games except PowerBall can be played up to 15-30 minutes before the drawings.

        Given 5 games per playslip that's 250 sets of numbers.

        Sounds like a possible case for GA, if you're actually playing them all. If it's some means of tracking, there's better ways.

        Good Luck.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          If your making out 50 slips at a time to play the lottery the pen is not the problem...PS..After making out all those slips save them so you don't have to make out the next time.....Walllaaa case solved..

            Before I retired in '98, I once filled out 50 play slips for Ohio's Super Lotto.  I had some luck picking numbers using a computer program I wrote matching four once in while so when the jackpot got really large one of my co-workers asked if I could come up 500 lines for him to play.  He said he thought he could get enough guys together to buy them if they knew there weren't any duplications in them so I did and we each made out 50 play slips.   When I got done I promised myself I would never do that again and I haven't since. 

            He came up with eight other players and we all contributed $50.  We matched a four which we might have done if we had just bought 500 quick picks instead.  I never liked QPs, but I normally just play 10-20 lines so making out play slips isn't a problem and I like using a fine point marker when I do.

              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.

              tiggs will make out playslips for a fee..As many as you guys need..You do need to send the slips to tiggs if that's not to hard to do and tiggs will do the rest..Waaaalllaaaa case solved!!..

                  I just release my will to the universe and allow the universe to fill in the playslips through it's divine nature in accordance with the yin and yang of the ethos.

                  But it never does.

                  So I just get quick picks instead.

                  Cuz you see, the universe is a beyotch.

                  And next time I'm gonna kick it's ass.

                  No, you don't mess with me, man.

                      Thanks goodness for joker17.  I thought I was the only one.  I prefer the 6" wide brushes.  Which do you prefer?
