I'd like to start playing 10 lines per drawing and would like to know if there is an easy way to write the numbers in MS Word and then print them off on my computer and take it into the lotto places to get them scanned. Doing it by hand takes too much time.

      Suggest you do some research and determine whether or not your state lottery will allow use of automated playslips.

      You can't do that in Texas. Each slip must be filled in by hand.

      Believe most other states also prohibit use of computer generated playslips.

      You can reuse a manual play slip.

      Good luck!

          It shouldn't take more than 2 minutes to fill 10 lines.....if you know the numbers you want to play....Cmon don't be lazy....it's not a lot of time...LOL

            Not in Michigan, easy pick or fill out your slip, 10 minutes, for 550 million, I would call that the easiest money ever.

                You guys are right. However, I am thinking of starting a lottery club with 4 other people from work. We plan to put in money once a month ($40 each) and then just keep adding $40 each month till the jackpot reaches a certain amount. So, even though right now filling out 10 slips may be easy, I think with the lottery club that will be times when we will have like 200 or maybe even more tickets for a certain jackpot. Now, we could buy 200 easy picks (or quick picks as some of you call them) but that's no fun. We would like to wheel our numbers therefore we want to pick our own numbers. Is the only method when buying large number of ticktes to do it by hand? I can't imagine what it must take to do 200 slips, not too mention possibilty of making an error.

                  Im thinking your stuck...you all are gonna have to split the responsibility of filling out those payslips....but quickpicks have a history of paying off more than you picking your own numbers.....beside it's also easier being mad at the machine for picking the wrong numbers if you don't win

                    You can print playslips with Expert Lotto. Do a web search.

                        And you can run those playslips thru the lotto machines?? or it prints you a guide of numbers for you to play? I don't know if the state lotteries let you use your own personal playslips....that's one reason they provide them.....keep down the apperance of inpropriety

                          Two hundred tickets fit into 20 slips, because each slip has place for 10 tickets. That's one. Another: you can just hand write all the needed numbers an let the cashier to plug them into the tickets. Just afterwards check, if cashier did not make mistakes. If mistake is there, ask to redo the ticket.

                           

                          Also, if the task of writing down ticket numbers or marking them on the slips is hard for you, delegate it to someone in a group who can do it easely.

                            Ok your going to trust a purple haired teenager to input 200 different numbers

                            and then try to complain if they make a mistake. Even the best of lotto machine

                            operators won't be able to do that---nor should they.

                             

                            It is your resposibility to do it right. The clerk could care less and will be irritated

                            that you are so lazy to ask them to do it for you.

                             

                            It's like going to McDonalds. If the one you go to always messes up the order---

                            go to another one.

                              You use normal payslips.
