WOW! Just, WOW!

REVIEW: OUTSTANDING!!
Nate Staniforth’s Lottery Ticket illusion is absolutely fantastic – It’s one of the most exceptional magical performance routines I have seen. I bought it recently, and I'm so glad I did. I say this with honest objectivity, because I don’t know Nate Staniforth. Before buying this effect, I had never communicated with him.

When considering placing my order, I thought his video demo was extraordinary, and saw the effect as a perfect solution for something I had been seeking. I also found the Q&A on his web site very helpful to make my purchasing decision. After placing my order, I was impressed by a thoughtful email he sent, saying how important it was to him that I would be happy with it.

It arrived quickly, and I was immediately pleased with the high quality of the book and the great color photos. As I read, I was excited by his creativity and approach, and with the 'flight-time' it must have taken to evolve the concepts so thoroughly. I was happy with the great clarity and detail in his instructions, as well as the flexibility of the multiple methods provided. I was motivated by the potential this routine has, as presented, and as I might evolve it should I choose. The fact that it’s a limited release is a great added bonus.

Since receiving this, I have successfully performed it, and was perfectly thrilled with the reactions!

EXPERIENCE: EXPLOSIVE!!
I don't do magic for a living. As my day job, I lead a company that develops and manages apartments. I'm also an enthusiastic magic fan and hobbyist, and although I have many years as a magic collector and appreciator, I have limited experience as a performer. I have public speaking and stage experience, but no stage magic experience. Nevertheless, I purchased Lottery Ticket with the hope of doing my 1st ever real stage magic performance.

We recently conducted our company's annual educational and inspirational meetings. I wanted to anchor certain points about our company strategy and our meeting's theme, and I wanted to utilize magic to do it – something that would have the potential for megatons of WOW.

So, in front of 150 of my people, including all my senior leaders, I put my neck out there, in the hands of this fantastic routine and my amateur skills (not so amateur that I'd put the method at risk, but amateur enough that I was admittedly nervous).

Upon the reveal, I got screams and a spontaneous standing O, and the thrill of pulling it off felt like getting struck by lightning! My people exploded with excitement as my volunteer read the numbers to the audience, but as wonderful as it was for them, I knew it was even more wonderful for me.

I sincerely appreciate Nate’s amazing creativity, and that he is willing to share it through this effect with a small group in this way. I'm very excited to be part of it!

When performed correctly this effect will never be forgotten. How many effects fall into that category?

Just re-read this for the 3rd time and it really is awesome the amount of inspiration you can get from this for other effects!

Also just found out that there are only 30 copies left of the 150, so glad I got mine!

Thanks again Nate for releasing such a great book!

Would love to get this, but looking into it, it looks like this is only feasable with US lottery tickets. Can someone pm
whether this is the case or does the method make it feasable for international lottery tickets too, like Euromillions or UK lotto See link. Love to hear that it does...

Cheers Guys
Whether you think you can or you can't, you're right!

Hi Michael, There is a method contained within that can accommodate virtually any type or style of lottery ticket.

22 left. These last copies are shifting rather slowly. I too am looking forward to this book selling out.

Actually to me it seems like it has sold very quickly for this type of thing. The book has even inspired me to create my own effect which is the subject in a thread in Penny for your Thoughts (Price for effect is the name of the thread). My effect has absolutely nothing to do with the Lottery Illusion method. However, it was inspired by Neil's words and views on magic and mentalism. It truely changed the way I thought about mentalism and what is possible.

I continue to absolutely treasure my book. To me, it is priceless. I will not part with it at any price.

I also used it differently, more like a confabulation routine. At the end, I take from my wallet a ticket, on it it's the exact show name, date, hour and seat number choose by spectators! And it's a real printed ticket!

I am performing The Lottery Ticket, as well as, variations of it, but the book has also inspired me to come up with something else that is "impossible" in the mind of the spectator. My customized routine that I have created takes blood, sweat, and tears, but that type of effort does not go unnoticed to the spectator. In fact, this preparation is what creates the "impossibility" factor for the person witnessing the event. The Lottery Ticket Illusion is genius in this regard.

Regards,
Mike

Ignore my above post. And I apologise for my sleeping error in the above. I blame auto correct and there doesn't seem to be an edit option from my mobile.

I found the wepay link. Looks as though there are 9 copies of The Lottery Illusion left.
