DEAL OR NOT DEAL
A perfect close-up routine! An effect with multiple twists and turns!
DEAL OR NO DEAL will surprise your audience every time!
Take a deck of cards from your pocket and take the cards from the case.
You now propose a little game to your spectator!
Explain that you have a prediction card in your pocket and that this prediction will match the card you will choose from the deck on the table!
You are so sure of this that you offer your spectator the banknote if you are wrong! Interesting, isn't it?
The spectator immediately accepts this DEAL because he has nothing to lose!
Take the deck in hand and deal the cards face down on the table one by one face down...
Invite your spectator to say STOP whenever he likes, no force! At STOP, take the banknote, and place it on the freely selected card.
Everything is CLEAN and therefore no manipulation is possible!
Will your spectator win the money? Will your prediction be correct?
Then take the prediction card out of your pocket and show it to everyone.
Let's say it's the 10 of hearts.
Slowly take the card that is under the banknote... turn it over...
It's also the 10 of hearts! That's the first effect!
Your spectators are wondering if have several predictions in your pocket...
Reassure them by explaining that you were so sure that the spectator would on the 10 of hearts, that you had marked it on the back of the banknote!
Then invite your spectator to return the banknote himself... Written on it in black marker is the 10 of hearts! That's the 2nd effect!
This time your spectators wonder if your deck is made up of only of 10's of hearts. That's the only possible explanation!
Look at them and tell them that indeed, the deck is indeed composed of identical cards... but they are all blank!
IMPOSSIBLE you say!
Take the whole deck and show each card one by one... BLANK... BLANK... BLANK AND MORE BLANKS...
The whole deck is composed of NOTHING BUT BLANK cards!
Only one card is printed, the 10 OF HEARTS! The card chosen by your spectator! This is the 3rd effect!
THE DEAL has been incredible for your spectator and yet...
You now proudly take back you banknote because you had everything right from the beginning!
Remember the strong points:
- Only one prediction card!
- The prediction is different every time!
- No manipulation!
- The ticket is ORDINARY! Nothing to hide!
- Use any banknote AND any currency!
- Reset in 5 seconds!
The gimmick takes care of everything for you 100%.

Love the design, though remember to also have a standard deck of Bicycle in the same back color. The tutorial is very thorough in explaining the possible outcomes. It's easy to adapt. Though when set up you will want practice in making it smooth as with any trick. Also you may want to adapt it for yourself to make it portable, as the way it's presented it will not fit in a standard box.
Overall great product, a user tip slightly dimmed lighting will help the illusion.
I love this card trick. Only took me a short while to learn and practice it. It is so simple and yet so astonishing for my audience. Great fun.
Fun little trick great for beginners.
Cool! Thanks Eric
