Smart Luck Software Media Options
When you order Smart Luck lottery software, you can choose from several media options. You can have a CD and/or USB flash drive (additional cost) shipped to you, you can choose download only, or you can combine these methods. Select your media option during check out.
Gail Howard's books must be shipped - there is no electronic download available for any books.
CD'S (Compact Discs)
CD's contain the same program versions that are available for download but are installed using a Windows install program. Each program requires you to key in your name, the serial number of the program and the install code. All Smart Luck programs as well as all three history sets, the free Lottery Updater program, and the program manual are included on every CD.
The install keys for the programs you purchased are affixed to the envelope that contains the CD (do not lose the envelope). The history files and Lottery Updater program do not require install keys but do require Advantage Plus.
CDs are the default media option unless you choose an alternative media during checkout.
NOTE: Although our software pages now feature images of software boxes, the software on CD is shipped in a CD sleeve in a protected envelope, not a box.
Flash Drive Memory Stick
All Smart Luck software is available on a USB flash drive, so you can take the software with you on a portable drive. The cost of the USB flash drive is $25 in addition to software and shipping charges.More Info
Software can also be installed from our web site if you check that option. There are no electronic forms of the books available, so books ordered from our website cannot be downloaded - Amazon has kindle editions of some of the books available.
There is no additional charge for installing the programs by download. Downloaded programs on our website are identical to the programs on our CDs or other media. The same install keys will work with any media method as long as they are used to install the same version of the same program.
If you check the Download option, you will receive an email with the instructions and codes needed to install the programs. This is a separate email from the initial confirmation sent immediately after order placement. Check your confirmation email for the date you should expect the download code email. Downloads are NOT immediate. Download emails are sent before the end of the day the orders are processed or the next morning. The CD will still be sent and you will still be charged for shipping unless you also check the Download only option. Orders received before 2pm Eastern are processed on the next business day (excluding holidays and weekends), and orders received after 2pm Eastern will be processed on the second business day.
If you choose "Download Only", the shipping charge for the software will be removed, and we will not ship you the software. Instead you will be emailed the instructions and codes you will need to install the programs, manuals, and lottery winning numbers history from our web site. This is a separate email from the initial confirmation sent immediately after order placement. Check your confirmation email for the date you should expect the download code email.
Downloads are NOT immediate. Download emails are sent before the end of the day the orders are processed or the next morning. Orders received before 2pm Eastern are processed no later than the next business day (excluding holidays and weekends), and orders received after 2pm Eastern will be processed no later than the second business day.
There are no electronic forms of the books available, so books cannot be downloaded. If you ordered books, you will be charged shipping for them, even if you ordered software by download only.
The Lottery Winning Systems book that is free with your first wheel program purchase is NOT available for downloaded software but only with shipped orders.
