I can't express how excited I am to be sharing this with you all right now. I have been keeping this hush hush for about two months now while Nate was getting the website ready. I haven't been this excited about something in a long time. My fellow midwestern Magician has just released his masterpiece as of about 10am CT May 8, 2012. Limited Edition, 150 copies. Will never be reprinted. I just bought the first copy. Nate gave me permission to release the link on the Café as he doesn't frequent here often. Trust me, it was difficult keeping this a secret. I love sharing awesome news! Great things come from Iowa. Smile

Oh wowsers,

This looks great. 150 copies won't last long. I may have to leave this one for the working pros although very tempting.

@ $298 it's going to be a while to sell 150 copies. What's the rational of LIMITED EDITIONS anyway? Most of these LIMITED EDITIONS pop back up on the market due to "popular demand"

I realize everyone has the right to sell these limited products etc. Just never made sense to me. I've seen too many examples of a second release. And besides most that buy it won't perform it.

Peace hope sales increase and increase and my point will be made ... eventually.

I think the big question is how much do you spend on top of the manuscript?

Your question is not big; it was answered in the OP's link.
Your admonition to "not be taken" infers one would be, by purchasing the product.
Please - provide substance before casting aspersions, otherwise it appears as petty jealousy.

Is this effect for USA only, with similar tickets showed on the video, or is this possible in any country that have a lottery?

I think the effect is amazing. I really liked his performance too. Judging by the size of the audience he is doing something right!

Voh,

Here is another video of a performance. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OJaGyCiPcfo

As you can see from this performance, a different type of ticket/paper is used. Keep in mind, most people don't know what a lottery ticket looks like so it shouldn't be a problem. The fact it's printed on an "official looking" document is really all that's needed.

Well I am sure you know I do not care what it looks like.

But if you can think of why I should please let us all know.

I think it is a good trick and can see that many magicians will make use of it.

Jim

PS. Let me say I did miss the part of his site that said it is a grand in addition to the book to do this.

But still it is a nice magic trick for the price if you have a helper and worth the cost in my opinion.

First, full disclosure: Nate is one of my best friends and he is also one of my biggest "competitors"...strange how that works.
However that does not make what I'm about to write incorrect or an embellishment.

I have had the opportunity to see this live on multiple occasions and in different venues. There is a power behind this trick that is outstanding. This has fooled me badly multiple times and EVERY TIME I'm w/Nate and other magicians are around they always ask about this. This trick really is not for someone that is a hobbyist (which there is nothing wrong with). This is for someone who wants to bring true magic to their audiences and wants to put in the work to make it happen!

This is an effect that legitimately answers the question magicians and mentalists ALWAYS (at least for me) get asked..."Can you give me the winning numbers..."

I type this having just read this the 2nd time since I received it, and if you are working performer and this interests you, you will not find anyone that has put more thought and work into this effect than Nate.

If you are a creative person, the various methods (yes there are multiple) will get your creative juices flowing....in fact, an effect I wrote based on one of the ideas in this book I would not release for 10x this price.

I do know that this will NOT be released again as there in no one I know more ethical than NS, and honestly he makes his living performing not releasing material. He could have released this right after David Blaine performed this on his last special, but chose to continue to keep performing it for himself while still developing this during every performance. He could have just sold this to one or two other performers exclusively, however he chose to share it with 149 other lucky people.

My advice, if you are questioning/concerned about the price, the material, the author....don't purchase it. However there are plenty of performers in both the magic and mentalism community that will not hesitate to purchase this great book, put in the work and see the value of a truly road/audience tested piece of true magic.

I am proud to be one of the few to have read this already and will be putting this right next to my copy of the Berglas Book!

People who limit a release and then re-release more copies are scoundrels! The idea of (printed)limited release is a great thing (in my opinion), it helps prevent (not totally stop) piracy.

The price of the book is irrelevant (if there is more than one use for the principles), your paying for a small part of someones thoughts which is a very, very private thing and just like pricing their show its up to the owner to determine the price.

Just my 2 pennies Smile

You are purposefully misstating what it says. I believe your intentions are again suspect.

It is performed without a helper. Though you're welcome to use one, he does not use one on his tour. And having read the link again, you already knew this. Back to your "magic tricks", unless you have more to add.

Only after having seen the video I think that The Lottery Ticket Illusion by Nate Staniforth is awesome. There is one thing that I don't understand, why would a Working Pro sell this wonderful routine, I don't get it. 150 copies = 40.000 dollars? Unless he doesn't want to perform it again, which is strange.

Regards
Mark

Not everyone who buys this will end up performing it. Lets say once all the books sell out that half of the people who bought the book perform the effect. Heck, lets say they ALL perform the effect.

Surely there is enough space in the world for 151 people to be performing this?...
