Top Current Questions

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: I have macOS 10.13 ("High Sierra"), and Lotto Sorcerer works fine for me.

A: You must have upgraded to 10.13 from an older OS that Lotto Sorcerer works on (Mac OS 10.4 through 10.11). So there is some component in the older OS that lets Lotto Sorcerer run. If you did a clean install of macOS 10.13, or if you purchased a new computer that came with macOS 10.13, you would find that Lotto Sorcerer will not work.

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. Try running Lotto Sorcerer anyway (under macOS 10.12 and above). Many users have reported that Lotto Sorcerer works fine under macOS 10.12+. If your macOS (10.12 or above) is an upgrade from an older, supported operating system (Mac OS X 10.4 through 10.11), Lotto Sorcerer may work, since components from the older operating system (that enable Lotto Sorcerer to run) are still on your computer.
  2. Get a refurbished computer that runs Mac OS X 10.4 (Intel) through 10.11. We highly recommend macofalltrades.com.
  3. Run the Windows version of Lotto Sorcerer directly on your Mac by using Crossover.
  4. Get a Windows computer (with Windows XP through Windows 10) and run the Windows version of Lotto Sorcerer.
  5. Run Windows (and run the Windows version of Lotto Sorcerer) on your Mac by using Boot Camp.
  6. Run Windows (and run the Windows version of Lotto Sorcerer) on your Mac by using a Windows emulator such as Parallels or VMware Fusion.
  7. 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.
Q: Are you going to continue to produce Lotto Sorcerer for Mac OS X (10.4 through 10.11)?

A: Yes, we will continue to produce Lotto Sorcerer for Mac OS X (10.4 through 10.11) and Windows. We are also looking at porting Lotto Sorcerer once again to Linux.
