It looks interesting. Can someone tell is the offering wallet necessary or the effect can be done in other way too - chips in the spectator’s pocket, or in bag or other wallet...!? I ask because the whole effect do not looks using a gimmick and it is most probably just f**ce so I can not see the reason they to sell it also with wallet. It can be just download or pdf file explanation trick...

I am glad you posted this. I never heard of this trick till now. I would like to know the answer to your question and if the trick can be repeated with a different chip color ending up being the prediction and last one in bag.

I would suggest...

You could have the spec pocket any colour chip - but you would need to have two copies of that chip [one for the pocket and one for the wallet]

Obviously you only get the five chips with this effect [and two of them the same colour]

Wallet question,

Of course the effect could be done another way - but the wallet way is the one you are buying

This is based on another Steve Cook effect - so if you would rather do this with Dice and a dice holding box [instead of a wallet] - you could do it that way

Even though Liam talks about Jedi powers - there is no force

Any more is exposure

If you like the effect - it looks a really good package / price especially as you get the wallet too... I bought the dice version for £160

And it has been fun to do

Duster you are spot on. I contacted the facebook page and they said the prediction colour could change but you would need the extra colour chip as you say. You are right about the wallet as well it can be done another way but it does come with soo. Wish you could tell me more about the "Jedi powers". But yes I am going to get this and maybe Galaxian from the site too it looks interesting.

Is the die one you are talking about DIE-ABOLICAL VERSION 2 BY STEVE COOK, TONY CURTIS? I ran across that when looking around and it looks really awesome. Wish I could get that one too. I asked on the thread for it and Mr. Curtis sent me to a foreign site (i am in the U.S)I don't recognize and the cost before shipping is about $250 don't even know what shipping is. If you are interested in selling yours let me know HaHa.

I think mine was £160 [if I remember]

Not worth selling it - as after posting it to you - I guess it would be well over $200

They have a version of that [Die-abolical by Steve Cook] which sells for about $12

So if you would rather do a dice version [then the poker chip version] I would guess you could get the dice version for cheaper than Gamble

If you see this - probably don't get the Poker Chip Prophesy

Looks like it's only 5 min instructions - I'm sure the extra cost and getting Liam doing the instructions will be much better value

But if you prefer the dice version get that... as other than a 2nd reveal, it's the same effect as the Dia-bolical V2 that is a $200+ effect

Here's a review on Pengiun of the Poker Chip Prophesy [and why not to get that version]

"Don't waste ur money. The DVD is like 5 minutes long. There really aren't any presentation ideas at all. The chips look cheap and they are regular chips. The audience in the video didn't even have a great reaction . If you think about this routine some you can perform it without buying it at all . Don't waste your money like I did . "

Thanks for the advice. For the difference I agree I am going to go with Gamble and maybe Galaxian. I might just get the dice too even though it's the same thing sort of. Just because dice are cool too. LOL

I watched the video again on die 2 and the second reveal doesn't make much sense since we already revealed the two dice. So yep the price is to high for sure.

The Duster, I think that Poker Chip Prophesy and The Gamble are different effects. But I repeat my wonder - why they sell it with wallet and normal chips which just increases the cost when these are not gimmick and the effect can be sell just like video download explanation (or pdf book) which will be much more cheaper and will save also the shipping costs!?
The effect can be done also with different coins, different colors dices etc., so the wallet and chips which obviously are normal are not necessary and just increase the price...

Isn't Casino Con an effect with a completely different M.O.?

If the predicted chip is ... a) first out of the purse or b) last out of the purse (as in the video)...
...these are both strong outcomes and superb, BUT how strong, as a percentage, are the other two outcomes?

I guess it would be 25% or 1 in 4 chance since there are only four outcomes that can happen.

What's funny is, I have been hitting it lucky as the majority of the time the participant has removed it first! Lol..

I prefer the ***c* ***p coming out 2nd. Those who own the effect will know why. Very strong ending. However, all endings are strong, that's just the one I prefer. Mostly I perform this if I'm hanging around after a gig (waiting for payment, chatting to patrons, or saying goodbye to the hosts) and someone asks me to show them 'one more'. Very strong trick. Highly recommended, especially at such a low price point.

C-suite. I see exactly what you mean, particularly in light of Liams's "feelings" about the first choice and instructing her to choose a different chip. Will say no more. getting into expo territory.
Use the FORCE Luke.

I suppose one could substitute a few different coins for this as well huh? And may be place the secret coin in a small envelope on the table.

You all still like this item?

Lovely effect but I'm not a fan of multiple outs.
