Top Current Questions

Q: I am getting the error message "IOException in module 0A6" when launching Lotto Sorcerer. (Windows only)

A: You will need to "Add an Exclusion" setting to your Windows Defender, and exclude the "Lotto Sorcerer v9 Files" folder, which is located in your Documents folder. For details as to how to add an exclusion to Windows Defender, please visit here.

Q: The U.S. lottery Mega Millions changed the game parameters to 1 to 70 and the bonus ball to 1 to 25. How can I change this within Lotto Sorcerer?

A: Open the Edit Lottery Settings window (menu item "Lottery Structure > Edit Lottery Settings"), choose your state's "Mega Millions" from the list, make the appropriate changes and click the "Make Changes" button.

Q: Does Lotto Sorcerer work with macOS 10.12 ("Sierra") or macOS 10.13 ("High Sierra")?

A: No, macOS 10.12 and 10.13 are incapable of running Lotto Sorcerer. As is stated on the System Requirements webpage, Lotto Sorcerer is designed to work with Mac OS X (10.4 through 10.11) and Windows (Windows XP through Windows 10).

Q: Do you plan on upgrading Lotto Sorcerer so that is will work with macOS 10.12 or higher?

A: No, our current compiler will not generate code that will work with macOS 10.12 or higher. Furthermore, several third-party modules within Lotto Sorcerer cannot be upgraded to work with updated versions of our compiler.

Q: What options are left for macOS 10.12+ users?

A: Although Lotto Sorcerer does not officially run under macOS 10.12 ("Sierra") and above, here are alternatives:
  1. Get a refurbished computer that runs Mac OS X 10.4 (Intel) through 10.11. We highly recommend macofalltrades.com.
  2. Run the Windows version of Lotto Sorcerer directly on your Mac by using Crossover.
  3. Get a Windows computer (with Windows XP through Windows 10) and run the Windows version of Lotto Sorcerer.
  4. Run Windows (and run the Windows version of Lotto Sorcerer) on your Mac by using Boot Camp.
  5. Run Windows (and run the Windows version of Lotto Sorcerer) on your Mac by using a Windows emulator such as Parallels or VMware Fusion.
  6. You could configure a Wine implementation that would allow you to run the Windows version of Lotto Sorcerer directly on your Mac, without using an emulator. Many Linux users use Wine to run the Windows version of Lotto Sorcerer on their computers; similarly, Wine may be used to run Lotto Sorcerer on macOS 10.12+. Configuring Wine is difficult, but the free WineBottler may may make it easier.
