I want to know if I have a premium membership, if I can print play slip from the wheels.

    If that was available, I think Todd would be breaking many state and federal laws, and would verifiable y announce him as unenelected the leader of a ragtag cabal of lottery misfits, who in large have as their sole purpose the desire to break the lottery and unfetter the shackles of capitalistic slavery.

    But to answer your question more succinctly, then the answer would simply be NO.

      I played around with a program that was suppose to print play slips, but it never worked correctly. If someone has a program that does work, they could easily use LP's wheels. Some of the lotteries have online jackpot game wagering and it might be possible to copy and paste an LP wheel too.

      Which laws would a program that printed out play slips be breaking?

        I tried to write my own program.  Not so hard with excel.  You just have to line up your margins, and just go by trial and error, but the cards just kept jamming in the printer.

        So, more important question than "does LP have a wheel printing functionality?", is "are the cards compatible to the printer?".

        I stopped trying since a ten dollar wheel, I can do with a marker in a snap.

        When I become a whale, I might enlist a team from the cabal to make this possible.

        I dont know what laws, but I read somewhere on LP that somebody tried this and it was kinda frowned upon by some sort of offical, state, federal, lottery, i dont know for sure, but thus it is a kind of taboo to admit that you are printing out your playslips.

        Of course they were printing out hundreds of lines, and some LP wheels do allow for hundreds of lines.

        One of the reasons I dont do large wheels is because, I am humble meager minnow.

        The other is because filling in 100 lines by hand is quite a daunting task to perform. Especially without errors.

          I don't know if it's a law but many play slips have a rule that they should be marked manually.  I suppose it's to avoid players complaining they intended to print a winning combination but their printer was not aligned.

            In some stores the play slips don't even need to be marked correctly because clerks will correct them either on the machine or the play slip. I believe the rules of how many play slips is flexible too because a player can't tie up a terminal if nobody else is playing.

            I've heard people complain about clerks not giving them the combos they asked for, but what's so difficult about checking your tickets before paying for them. I really doubt we'll find very many average players who will make 25 picks and fill out play slips and probably won't find anyone who is playing thousands of combos and filled out hundreds of play slips.

              Nowadays you can 3d-print anything, even your slips from a wheel.

                Technically, there would probably be copyright infringement issues with duplicating the full layout of a state's playslip.

                One way around that would be to just print the markings in the right places without all the text and boxes (you would have a playslip with only a bunch of marks on it). The markings necessary to successfully have a machine accept it would include number choices, options choices, and any alignment markings that would be needed.

                  I fill out playslips every time I play. Whether it's for 2 #'s or 40 #'s. That way, there is no way I can lose because the clerk

                  pressed the wrong key. Any mistakes are on me. Besides, it's quicker at the store.

                    Looks like Badie is what I call a "One and Done".

                    One post, one question, never to be seen again.

                    No hellos, no goodbyes, no responses, no acknowledgements, no ok's, no thank you's, no kiss my a$$, no go jump in the lake, no nothin'.

                    One and Done. 

                    So on behalf of Badie, I want to say thank you for all your help, Lottery Post Members. 

                    And don't be too harsh on Badie.

                              I fill out playslips daily for a group of numbers with black ink...
                              Then file them away into plastic sleeves in my lotto notebook...

                              When I want to play that group of numbers I have them available...

                              Not hard to do 50 a day ...... time is money
