Issues with iPad And Other Mobile Devices

Certain iPads and other mobile devices only allow the user to download files and applications from an App Store. If your computer or mobile device does not allow you to download and save .ZIP files from the internet you will need to use a different computer or mobile device to download the product.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

I Can't Open The File I Received.

The lottery number data files you purchased are located inside the .zip archive file that was emailed to you or downloaded from our web site.

To access the lottery number data files you will need to "unzip" them from the .zip file. The procedure to do this on a Windows XP and newer computer is as follows:

  1. Save the emailed/downloaded .zip file to an easy to find location on your hard drive.
  2. Find the saved .zip file on your hard drive using Windows Explorer.
  3. Right click the file and select "Open With / Compressed (zipped) Folders".
  4. The lottery numbers data files should now be available to you and viewable in any word processor

Apple has built-in zip support in Mac OS X 10.3 and later.

If you understand how .zip files work and believe the .zip file or the data files within are corrupt let us know as soon as possible. Please provide a description of the problem you are experiencing unzipping the .zip file or viewing the data .txt files. If we determine the file(s) have been corrupted we will send you a new version of the .zip file to you as long as it is being sent to the same email address as the original order.

Why aren't bonus numbers included in all possible?

In lottery games such as Powerball and Mega Millions the bonus numbers are selected in a second drawing completely separate from the first. See the example below.

Drawing One: 1-5-47-53-55    Drawing Two (Bonus Number): 33

Therefore there is no reason to generate all combinations of the 5 numbers in the first drawing and the single number in the bonus drawing because they are not related to each other. They are selected in two different drawings.

With Powerball we provide all possible number combinations of 5 numbers ranging from 1 to 59 arranged lowest to highest. In Mega Millions we provide all possible number combinations of 5 numbers ranging from 1 to 56 arranged lowest to highest.

Selecting a bonus number for either game is easy. Just select a single number ranging from 1-35 (Powerball) or a single number ranging from 1-46 (Mega Millions).

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why 50,000 Number Combinations Per-File?

We divide the number combinations for a lottery game into multiple text files containing 50,000 number combinations each (except for the last file in the series which has fewer number combinations (in most cases)) because many of our customers open and view the number combinations in older versions of Excel which have a 50,000 data row limit. Newer versions of Excel allow just over 1 million data rows. However, we believe it's easier to combine many smaller text files to create fewer, larger files than vice versa.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Can You Send The Number Combination Files In Excel File Format?

No, but all of the text files containing the number combinations that you downloaded can be opened directly in Excel. A second option (if you prefer) is to copy and paste number combinations from the text files into Excel.

Excel doesn't automatically recognize text files. Therefore, when browsing to open one of the text files containing the number combinations in Excel make sure the "View All Files" option is selected.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

How Do I Get Each Number In It's Own Cell In Excel?

If you copy number combinations from one of the text files into Excel it is likely that all of the numbers will appear in the same column. If you would like to place each number in it's own cell you can do so with the "Text to Columns" function found under the Data tab.

To use Text-to-Columns select (highlight) the column of numbers, click Text-to-Columns (under the Data tab), choose "Delimited", Next button, then check "Space" and finally click the Finish button.

All of the numbers should now be in their own cell.

If you need additional help, there are many detailed tutorials on how to use Text-to-Columns and other Excel features available online.

Troubleshooting the Lotto-Tools Program

If the program selects some number combinations then stops or produces an error message:

  • Check to be sure you or another person did not add text characters to any of the Best Bets or All Possible file(s). Check to make sure you or another person did not add a separate file containing text characters in a Best Bets or All Possible folder. The program cannot read text characters, only numbers!
  • Reduce the amount of number combinations to randomly select. The program has been known to have a hard time selecting large amounts of number combinations.

If the program freezes or fails to select any number combinations:

  • The program may not like the folder name. Close the Lotto-Tools program, rename the folder, restart the Lotto-Tools program and try again.

Cancellations and Refunds Policy

An order can be canceled at various steps of the order process. However, once the order has been submitted and your credit card charged, the order cannot be canceled and we will not provide a refund.

This policy is not unique to our web site, it is a standard policy for online businesses that provide downloadable data without a software key for authorized access. To be fair to all of our customers we strictly enforce this policy.

The rare exception are duplicate orders. If you accidently order the same product more than one time you may request that one of the two duplicate items are refunded. Duplicate order refund requests are subject to a $1 fee (to cover our costs and time) as well as the potential loss of any volume discounts received.
