Using Lotto Sorcerer is an easy process, with three steps:
- Setup at least one lottery.
- Enter numbers previously drawn (manually, through importing or online
- Have Lotto Sorcerer generate suggested numbers to play.
Step One of Three: Setup a lottery
You need to setup at least one lottery. Do this from the Main Window. Choose
Lotto Sorcerer's menu item "Lottery Structure > Lottery Setup Wizard" .
Step Two of Three: Enter, Import or Update Online Previously Drawn
You will need to enter, import or update online consecutive prior drawings
into the lottery's database so that Lotto Sorcerer can calculate a
meaningful analysis and extrapolate recommended numbers to play.
Entering Prior Draws Manually:
From the Main Window, select the lottery from the "Select Lottery" pull-down
menu. Then click the "Drawing History" tab in the main window.
Click on a date in the Calendar and enter the numbers drawn for that date in
the "Lottery Drawing Entry" boxes, then click the "Enter" button to enter
that drawing into the database.
Tip: if you are going to be manually entering a lengthy series of
prior drawings, start with the oldest drawing first. That way, Lotto
Sorcerer will automatically set the calendar for the next drawing date,
allowing for quick number-crunching.
Importing from Text Files:
If you want to import numbers, Lotto Sorcerer offers a wealth of resources
to help you. Many lotteries offer free datasets of prior drawings you can
download. Lotto Sorcerer will allow you to easily import a wide variety
of delimited text files or fixed width text files.
You will find these tools in Lotto Sorcerer's menu item "Lottery Data > Import Lottery Data" .
Updating Online through the Lottery Data Subscription Service:
This powerful feature lets you update your lottery databases online (using
the Internet), with minimal or no effort on your part. Please note that not
all lotteries can be updated in this fashion.
This feature is entirely optional, and is an extra-cost feature. To use it,
click the "Update" button in the Drawing History tab in the Main Window.
Step Three of Three: Have Lotto Sorcerer Generate Suggestions to Play
After you have entered a sufficient number of previous drawings into the
database, you can have Lotto Sorcerer recommend numbers to play for the next
upcoming drawing. To do this, from the Main Window, click on the Projection
Parameters tab in the Main Window to set the parameters; then click the
"Start" button in the Projection Results tab.
