Printing Tickets on Betslips

Top  Previous  Next

 

Lotto Pro allows you to print your tickets directly on lottery bet slips when you play Smart, Favorite or Random numbers. You can also print on bet slips when you apply filters to your lottery tickets.

 

If this is the first time printing on bet slips, you may have to create a bet slip definition file with information pertaining to the bet slip. You can also download bet slip definition files for some states from our web site.

 

The Bet Slip Properties screen can also be for testing and to make adjustments if your bet slips are not printing correctly.

To create a bet slip definition file:

 

Open the lottery you wish to print slips for and then select Bet Slip Properties in the Edit menu to display the Bet Slip Properties screen. This screen will also be displayed if you attempt to print bet slips before creating a definition file. The example bet slip above shows the information that must be entered in the Bet Slip Properties screen.

 

A preview window on the right side of the screen allows you to see what you design looks like as you enter the information. Use the Zoom In and Zoom Out buttons to optimize the display.

8.Enter the number of boxes across a panel in the Boxes Across box. The above example has 9 boxes across a panel.

 

9.Enter the number of boxes down a panel in the Boxes Down box. The above example has 6 boxes down each panel.

It this is the case, enter the number of boxes to skip in the first row or column before printing the first box. In the above bet slip, the first box is not offset from the others, so the value for the 1st Row Offset is zero.

18.Click the OK button to create/save your definition file.

 

 

To print a test bet slip:

 

1.Insert your bet slips into your printer. Make sure that you insert the slips vertically with the first panel down (into the printer). It is best if you place a stack of bet slips in your printer because the slips are less likely to shift position.

 

2.Click the Test button to print a test bet slip.

 

3.If the marks do not align with all the boxes, you will have to make changes to the measurements and then print another Test bet slip. You should continue testing until all the marks are aligned with the boxes.

 

4.Click the OK button to save any changes that you made.
