How to Create a Monthly Lottery Calendar

By Andrew Todd
Microsoft's website is home to many different calendar templates.

If you frequently participate in multiple lottery drawings, you may want to create a calendar to keep track of the drawings and entry deadlines for specific games. Calendars are created quickly and easily using free templates designed for use in a word processing program such as Microsoft Word. If you do not have Microsoft Word, you can use these same templates in Open Office, a free word processing suite made available by Sun Microsystems.

Download a free calendar template for the month and year that you would like to make the calendar for from Microsoft’s template database (see Resources for a link). Be sure the calendar has boxes that will allow for data entry.

Open the template in your word processor by double-clicking on the downloaded file.

Go to your local lottery’s website to determine the deadlines and drawing times for each game that you would like to include on your calendar.

Make entries on the specific dates by clicking on the cell containing the date and entering any lottery events occurring on that date.

Save and print the calendar when you have made all of your entries.
