Manual Entry Tips
- If you are entering more than one drawing, you should start with the oldest drawing first, and work up to the most recent drawing. When you do this, after entering a number, Lotto Sorcerer will automatically increment the date to the next scheduled drawing date, allowing you to skip step #2.
- If the drawing has numbers less than ten, precede the number with a zero so that, after entering the number, the cursor will automatically advance to the next box. For example, enter "8" as "08".
- After entering the last number in the series, hit the "Return" button on your keyboard, instead of clicking on the "Enter" button. You may find this to be faster.
