Using the basic functionality of Lotto Sorcerer is an easy process, with three steps:
- Setup a lottery
- Enter numbers previously drawn (manually, through importing or online updating)
- Have Lotto Sorcerer generate suggested numbers to play
Step One of Three: Setup a Lottery

...then choose your lottery...
...then click the "Yes" button:
If your lottery is not shown in the list, click the "Refresh" button in the Lottery Setup Wizard to see if your lottery has been added since the last release of Lotto Sorcerer. If your lottery is still not showing up, then you may be able to set it up as a "custom" lottery by clicking the "No" button. Click here
