Enter lottery daily readings

When managing lottery tickets, each store has their employee manually entering the slot opening and closing numbers on excel or a piece of paper to determine the actual sales based off of inventory. With CStorePro, you can achieve the same thing with more accuracy and faster time. To do this follow the steps below.

Note: In order to take daily readings, you must first confirm and activate the games or update the lottery settings to auto confirm and auto activate. Also, the tickets in the slot need to be increasing in value (i.e. first ticket sold should be a value of 1, than 2, 3, 4, etc)
