Ask your participants to focus their mind using special cards. Then ask them to visualize each digit of their secret code while you look into their eyes. Finally, reveal their exact code, digit per digit.

When you unlock their phones it is super visual and at the same time very personal and touching because it's their own device.

The effect has been perfected over years during performances in many countries with very different people - both on the street and on stage.

What's great:
- No set-up required
- Instant reset
- Works fully surrounded (100% angle proof)
- Works for multiple people in the same group
- No new skill to learn
- No sleight of hands
- No branching anagrams or speech techniques
- No mathematics involved
- No stooges or fishing
- No finger print reading
- Gimmicks are openly handled by participants
- The street gimmicks are far smaller than a box of playing cards.
- Suitable even for beginners in mentalism

PROFESSIONALS: The effect has been excessively test on stage in front of large audiences including hecklers. It got great reactions and was the key to be booked again and again.

What's included:
1) Routine to reveal any numeric codes (such as pin codes)
2) Routine to reveal pattern codes
3) Routine to reveal ATM pin numbers
4) Routine to reveal phone numbers
5) Many real-life performances with random people
6) Tools for street, parlor and stage
7) Gimmick templates for easy and fast assembly using simple household items

Overview of explanation video and playing times:
1) Introduction (5 mins)
2) Revelation of secret (25 mins)
3) Making the gimmick (15 mins)
4) Routine variations (30 mins)
5) Fail-safe methods (10 mins)
6) Bonus effects (40 mins)
7) Real-life performances (30 mins)

Miss leading Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 18th, 2015
The preview video is very miss leading the write up reads “Ask your participants to visualize each digit of their secret code while you look into their eyes. Then reveal their exact code, digit per digit.” And the video said “They don’t say anything”, “They don’t write down anything” “yet, you get their code”.
When without giving away the trick you have to use cards to find the passcode to the phone. I watched someone preform the trick at my club and they woman spectator had a confused look on her face, she then ask the guy preforming the trick “why the cards”.
I use a trick called Code Breaker on the same woman, she was blown away.

Mind-blowing and easy Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 11th, 2015
This is so powerful! My spectators are totally blown away, every time!
Unlike some other effects this one is not limited to IPhones and you don't need to borrow your spectator's phone before the big surprise.
That's a massive plus for me. Also, they don't need to type in their secret pin code into any other phone or device because people often suspect some software trick. With this one they won’t suspect anything.
And that's really beautiful.

I actually don't mind using the included gimmicks because they pack very small and they are practical and make life easy. So I can fully focus on my routine. When trying it at a friend’s party people looked at me and they absolutely couldn't believe it. That was so amazing!!

Any number combination works, not just phone locks. But with the phone pins it was more impressive as the phone is unlocked right in front of their eyes. To be honest, initially I worried about people finding the secret but they didn't see anything at all. When making the gimmicks you need a decent b&w printer: laser or inkjet, it doesn't matter, but needle printers wouldn't work. They say house hold items are needed for the construction. Actually you need a glue stick and some larger scissors. That’s it.

It's cool that the same gimmicks can be reused for most of the bonus effects and some of those are really nice. Like the one where your friends can 'feel' any number combination that you place down before them. The stage routine about drawing trees is also really easy and looks so powerful!

I love that they provide gimmicks also for parlor and stage. So, I plan to show these new routines on one of the upcoming weddings...

All in all, absolutely two thumbs up from my side! Would love to see more from this guy. Really awesome!

Amazing reactions, even for beginners like me Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 9th, 2015
Usually I don't write reviews but this one is absolutely worth it. First of all: Wow, what I got is much more than I expected. All the tools for parlor and stage shows are included. Where is that still the case these days?

The routine works like a gem. I've only tried it a few times but people really have no clue how I got their code. And you should have seen the looks on their faces. Brilliant!

It even works with those android pattern codes. Ok, once I had someone with a blackberry and alphabetical code. That did not work. But all other ones work well - no matter if Android or IPhone all or even "reading" just random numbers from their eyes works. That's really cool.

What I also liked: the method is explained step by step. So, even for me as someone who is new to mentalism it was really easy. I didn't know that mentalism stuff can be so simple, hands-on and entertaining.

The gimmicks are easy to make but when putting them together sometimes the glue gets on the face of the card and then you need to print it again. But hey, how much is a sheet of paper?! And now that they are done I can use them again and again. That's just great.

I like the real street videos shown but the sound quality was not always that great. At least I could understand everything.

Two of the bonuses are really nice. One of them is about random selections that turn into a prediction. I'll try that tomorrow.
Overall I'm honestly really happy that I got this item. Hope this review helps you. My recommendation is: Just get it and you won't regret it.

A joke Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 24th, 2016
Been around in the magic for over 40 years and i was stunned of how poorly this trick was. In the video U´ll never see cards or anything that can help out but the whole trick is based on cards with numbers on them. Okey.....if we just accept that fact.
Then the second surprice comes !!
On a few cards faces is a link for a webbsite, it says: www.dant.de/codino !!!
I have never seen prop with names on them before, so that was a news for me.
As someone mentioned before a centertear works better than this. This trick would fit nicely in a magicbox for beginners at a shopping mall !!!

These cards are really clever. Nothing written down, nothing said - exactly as advertised.
Strange, that some other reviewers did not understand the routine: For the spectators the cards are there to focus their minds onto each of the digits while you apparently look into their eyes. So it does not seem fishy for them. The cards are openly placed face down and you don't touch them at all. So, nowhere near card magic.
So it all makes sense. Very nice idea that works WITHOUT anyone writing down their code or typing it into a smart phone.
I love it!

I'm always curious about new stuff that seems good. While both the trick and the explanation are good and very clear, this trick just isn't for me. The need to use something extra – that I won't use with other tricks – makes it unpractical for me. My pocket space is limited, and I always try to fill them up with stuff that can be used for several effects. While I from time to time do bring a long gimmicks for single effects, it is something that happens very rarely.

To get to know a code (or any other number combination) from the spectator, I've previously used, and still use, impression pads and center tear. This works great for me, as I especially use the impression pad for several other tricks, as well.

I've now purchased both Codino and Code Breaker (by Michael Murray and Gregory Wilson), and when comparing, I have to say that I prefer Code Breaker. The reason for this, is that Code Breaker uses something both my spectators and I already are carrying with us. This eliminates the need to carry something extra to perform it.

However, despite that these tricks are good, and contributes with something new, I still feel that a good center tear or impression pads are cleaner, and will continue to use them in the future.

Love it! Report this review

Once again, Andreas' teaching is second to none! The explanation video is really clear and no stone is left unturned. The gimmicks are very well conceived and SUPER easy to set up yourself with the provided PDFs.

I guess some people might want to justify the use of cards for a Pin Code divination, but for me it's not a problem at all! There are many so-called "propless" methods that are extremely convoluted and not so practical.

Codino is extremely easy to use and fits in your wallet, ready to use at a moment's notice!

Fantastic!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 13th, 2015
I loved this trick. It's amazing and the spectators can't believe it!
Basically, anyone can do this from all skill levels, and get great reactions.
You'll have one-time preparation and witness many moments of amazement thereafter.
All the bonuses easily justify the price tag. Definitely recommend this one!
Will now search for more hidden gems on Penguin...

Felt cheated Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 19th, 2015
The advertisement is very misleading.
I saw the five stars review of the first three guys so I bought it. After few minutes of watching explanation,
I said WTF to myself. Is this what I am paying for?
Maybe the first three guys is the creator's friend.
Otherwise I can't imagine myself performing this without getting questioning from audience,why use card?
I don't think it will fly by any astute audience,the solution to the trick is too simple.
The most disappointed buy recently.
