Start and configure a new lottery by selecting either the open folder icon on the toolbar or from the menu select “File” then “Open/New Lottery” from the resulting drop down list. After you have selected one of these options you will be presented with an open dialog box similar to the one displayed below.

A) Type in a title for your lottery in the text box beside “File name:” If you are playing Florida lotto for instance you may want to type in “Florida Lotto” another example may be “Texas Lotto” if you are playing Texas lotto, or “Lotto 6/49” for Canada’s Lotto 6/49, or  “Powerball” for powerball type lotteries, “Singapore Toto” for Singapore Toto, whatever you decide you want for your title is up to you.

Select the ending range of your lotteries pool of numbers by using the up and down scroll arrows to the number with which your lottery ends.
Now use the scroll arrows to select how many numbers are drawn from your lotteries pool of numbers.

Once you check the powerball option, bonus numbers are switched to powerball numbers.

About file Extensions:
· Main database files have an ‘*.llp’ extension.
· Backup files have a ‘*.blp’ extension.
· Search result files have ‘*.sr*’ extensions.
Always use the ‘*.llp’ extension for your lottery data. Files with extensions other than ‘*.llp’ will automatically be overwritten during certain operations. For example ‘Backup’ automatically overwrites the corresponding file using the ‘*.blp’ extension; same thing with search result files.
Save As:
You can save any files using the ‘*.blp’ or ‘*.sr*’ extension as a primary file by right clicking the ‘Open/New’ button and saving the file with a ‘*.llp’ extension. ‘Save as’ is also available from the ‘File’ Menu.
