Where is this effect found? More information would be helpful here.
The difficult must become easy, the easy beautiful and the beautiful magical.

It is a bank night effect. watch the demo on penguin magic. I knew how it was done after one watching. I guess laymen will be deceived.

It doesn't require any sleights. You can do it the day you get it. The important thing with this trick is showmanship. Don't "rub it in their faces" when they don't win the money. You can do the trick for them another time. They will think they have a chance the next time around.

Kinda fun to see them hoping to pull out cash. Just remember to act nice about it and seem as if you hoped they won the money. It can be fun for all. After all, lots of folks like the lottery or spending a little time at the casino. Smile

Hi guys,

this effect can be found in max maven's stage mentalism video, termed as 'Goalmine'. it's the same thing. so if you have the video, then save up your 12 bucks. no gimmicks involved and it is relatively easy. btw, it's a killer effect.

It is the exact same handling as Maven's "Goal Mine" except "Goal Mine" has a more clever presentation and does not create that antagonist atmosphere most Bank Night effects do. As for the one being discussed here (which is titled like a book instead of a trick for some reason), I think it's the perfect opening effect to do if you want your audience to hate you for the rest of the show.

If you want to do a Bank Night effect and NOT lose your friends, take a look at Richard Osterlind`s opening routine on his first Mind Mysteries DVD. Richard has come up with something that pretty much takes the sting off the usual Bank Night presentations.

Yes.without exposing the method, I think it is a nice effect, so if you have 10 bucks spare then I think it is a good buy. if you want more bang for your bucks, then get max maven dvd.

All right, without having 2 expose the method, for those who have max maven video will know that there is no gimmicks involved in effect. you can have my word for this. anyway I see there is no point in using gimmicks here. if penguin is selling this effect where the envelopes are gimmicked, then I advise you to buy max maven video. everything can be examined at the end.

How different is it between M.Maven's presentation and R.Osterlind's presentation? Smile

that's weird, I thought I knew the method, which was competley ungimmicked and had the SAME exact movements he had.

Anyone else think this sounds like the title for a Harry Anderson book? Smile

This is the email, I asked bout a sucker is born every minute and Paul Harris' One and Only....

"Both of the effects that you mentioned are great. You can't hand out the final envelopes of either effect, but it really isn't necessary.

Both use gimmicks which are very clever and easy to use.

Hope this helps."

I got this from Penguin. No gimmick envelopes. You can hand them the envelope after the trick. I came close to actually having specs put in a few bucks to win some money, but honesty took over and I just did it for fun. I wish I was a con man...I wouldn't have to live on Mac&Cheese and my address wouldn't be Dumpster #4 Smile

It isn't examineable though without a cop-off...

Just think about it, you are left with a little something extra you werent suppose to have at the end...not gimicked but not showable.
