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. If you have never opened a .zip file before, there a many instructional videos on this subject available on YouTube.

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 that include a bonus number, (such as Powerball and Mega Millions) the bonus number is selected in a second drawing completely separate from the first. A bonus number that is selected in a second, separate drawing does not change the amount of possible number combinations in a lottery game. See the example below.

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

Although the results of the two drawings are often displayed as one number combination, they are not (as you can see in the example above). It is not accurate to think of the results of the two drawings as one number combination.

To accurately recreate a drawing for a lottery game with a bonus number, select a number combination from our All Possible Number Combination list for your lottery game, then randomly select a single number as a bonus number using any method you prefer.

Why 50,000 To 1M Number Combinations Per-File?

We limit the amount of number combinations per file to 1 million or less. Doing so allows the file(s) to open quicker in your favorite word processor and also allows opening the file(s) in Microsoft Excel which has a 1 million data row limit.

We USED to limit data files to 50,000 data rows per file as many of our customers used older versions of Excel which had a 50,000 data row limit. As most of our customers have upgraded to newer versions of Excel that allow 1 million rows of data we no longer limit the data files to 50,000 number combinations. Each data file may now contain 50K to 1 million rows of data per file.

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.
