My first paper money trick is Extreme Burn 2. I have settled on changing 1s to 5s - although it wouldn't seem to be as impressive as changing to a larger denomination, my line is to pull out the 1s and ask if anyone can change to a 5 for me? Then say oh forget it, I'll do it myself and make the change happen. I can play it up getting 4 extra 5s, etc. It seems to work well enough and doesn't cost as much as a total effect.

Mine is Extreme Burn, but here's a cool idea that will surely make you remembered.
Borrow a dollar bill. Do the Hundred Dollar Bill switch (whichever version you prefer), but rather than changing the one to a hundred, change it to a two dollar bill, and give it to the spectator.
You will leave a lasting impression, and it only cost you one dollar!


My version - which I've done at tables and behind the bar for years, is the usual $1 to $100 dollar bill.
9 times out of 10 they then ask if it can be done with their bill.
I borrow their bill, have it signed, then change the borrowed bill into the mismade dollar.
Tossing the mis made bill onto the table, I comment about the writing on the back.
They all make a grab for it to examine the bill.
They comment there is no signature on the bill.
I then direct their attention to the car key case that's been sitting on the table since the beginning.
It is unzipped and opened, a folded bill is removed by the spectator and opened revealing it to be the signed borrowed bill.
It kills - and most of the time they toss the bill to me as a tip.
I use Solaris "key-ruption" key case and while all the heat is on the mis made bill, I have all the time in the world to get the signed bill into the case practically right in front of them.
It really does kill and I have never gotten caught on it.
It is gutsy, but no more so than palming a card out of a deck.
This routine is by far my favorite and audience tested for literally 20 years.

Vernon's Tale of the Treasury Worm is another great one. It's in the Chronicles book.

I do Andrew Gerards "Energy Bill" which is impromptu and kills. Then if I got a loop ready I do the same effect in specs hand using loop to accomplish the effect.

I strongly prefer the fabulous Extreme Burn 2.0. It is my absolutely favorite go-to money trick. I also have gotten a LOT of mileage out of the Mike Close A Visit With Rocco trick. Instead of using it as a stage trick with jumbo bills, I made it up with regular currency. A killer close-up presentation.

One of my favorite "cash tricks" is "Cash Galore" by Peter Kane. Four rectangular pieces of thin plastic-like material are counted and shown on all sides, and then a $10.00 bill appears stuck to one of them. You remove it and stick it on your coat or shirt. Count again and a $20.00 bill appears that also gets stuck on the shirt. The third time a $50.00 bill appears. The fourth time though, no bill appears. But there's a nice, humorous twist ending.

I also had a nice routine with Tenyo's "Midas Machine" tied in with Automatic Teller Machines, but I haven't used it since back when the US changed the face of the $10.00 bill. I don't think Tenyo ever updated it with the new bills. It would probably go over still even if you use the old bills. You can see the original routine on youtube at

I dressed up my Midas Machine by covering the end that says "Printer" with an ATM logo from my own bank. On the back I had colored yellow squares with numbers on them arranged like buttons on a number pad. I also had a little green square on the back that said "OK" and a red square that said "Cancel." I also used it to reveal a chosen card that was printed on the back of the bill using dry transfer pips, the idea being that if I didn't find the chosen card, the $10.00 bill would go to the spectator.

I absolutely love all derivatives of Patrick Page's Easy Money including but not limited to Hundy 500, 3-D Cash, Slow Burn, Heiny 500, Extreme Burn, etc. The variations on Richard Sanders' Extreme Burn 2.0 is unrivaled by far and contains the most incredibly visual changes and hand-out options possible. Hand-out 500 uses an altered method so I did not list it under the aforementioned category.

With all things considered; however, I think my favorite rendition is still Gregory Wilson's Hundy 500 with some modified bill counts by Karl Hein. It may not be as visual as the others but, to me, it is still the most commercial version in terms of presentation and routining versus just a quick visual illusion.

The phase where he is illustrating the alleged "recoil" move to spectators in an attempt to teach the audience how short-change artists cheat people really sets them up and leads them down the garden path before turning the sprinklers on them when the morphing change occurs.
