Hi! This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.
BUY IT! BUY IT! BUY IT! AND
DON'T LOOK BACK! Well, maybe...
This was one of my most performed miracles for the longest
time! It's no secret that I tend to LOVE Greg Wilson effects, and this is no different. His stuff
packs small but plays HUGE, and it's the same here! You may hear effects being called "reputation
makers," but this one will literally do just that. It's not just a saying here.
I give it 4
stars (where, perhaps a year or two ago I would definitely give it 5) because of a few reasons.
Firstly, the effect can be done with other than $100 bills (which can be an expensive investment
for many people. $606 to construct this gimmick), but really, to have that WOW OMG moment it
needs to be $100's. Secondly, though I love the ease of this effect (it's VERY easy to perform),
I've found that doing a KILLER sleight of hand bill switch gets the same or even bigger reactions,
you learn a very useful move, and everything becomes examinable (you get to borrow the
For most audiences, magic this powerful always leads to skepticism of
the items used. This trick does not end clean and can't be fully examined. However, it is MOSTLY
examinable and can get by as a miracle pretty good.
Unless you're really ready to put in a
lot of time perfecting a solid bill switch, you should definitely pick this one up! You won't regret

This trick is a great trick, not only can you show the bills with all confidence, the change is the
most impactfull change you can do with a bill... well actually 4 bills. This is a great buy in my
opinion. I have one in my wallet right now.

Hi there!! Well the effect is very good, but I only give it 3 stars because you can only use
US.Dollars.!! I live in Europe and here all the bills have a different size.and different kind of
colors. So I have to use the dollars as well.....what a shame!!:-(

I agree with most reviews this is an amazing!!! The routine is fairly easy to get them, and
instructions are super super easy. The only problem I have seen is that when assembling the dollar
bills using rubber cement once completed my pack seems a lot bigger than Greg's on Screen.. Several
magicians looked at it and try their method... The packet again came out a a lot thicker than
Greg's!! Even watching the video this packet seems a lot smaller!!! Greg, we love Hundy 500, but
they need some assistance on this Greg can you help? Why does your packet seem smaller??

This effect alone kills! Use with caution. Will fry your audience

First, anything from Gregory Wilson is easily appealing to me. I love his magic and presentation
style. Hundy 500 is powerful and can be carried every day...ready to go at a moments notice.
Instructions on the DVD are great and making the gimmick is easy. I know there are a number of bill
changing effects out there but trust me, this rates at the top. I perform this all the time and get
great reactions. If you are looking for a solid bill change, put this in your cart.
With the debut of this trick, it became
one of the top three on the list of great
Although unfornately the longer it
becomes known to others, the less the trick
surprising. That being quoted, let's not
lose sight of the old famous quote from years
ago: " You can fool some of the people all the
time, all the people some of the time, though
you will never fool all the people all the time."
Like Greg said packs small and plays
an easy trick with great reactions. Have Fun &
be safe with your money.
This is my favorite magic of all that I own ... The extra secret is to keep the gimmick side towards
yourself and not towards the audience ... And to fan the 5 bills out when you show them ... Just say
it makes it easier for your audience to count or see the bills ... that way the upper bills cover
the gimmick ... then hand the top 2 or 3 $1 bills and $100 bills when you show them for inspection
... It blows their minds ! ... I keep this in my money clip 24 / 7 ... Again my favorite magic of
all time ! ... The reactions are insane ! :)
This is my first review EVER on Penguin. I have purchased through Penguin for many years. I met Greg
Wilson about a decade ago here in San Diego, Cali. I have always been, impressed with him. Hundy 500
is without question one of the cleanest simplest, packs small plays HUGE illusions you can
comprehend. Always in my wallet for MANY years now. Absofreakinglutely mind blowing for laymen. The
DVD is of top notch quality and easy to follow. Also VERY entertaining to watch. Well worth the
money. After a few days practice a beginner can seem like a pro. My reviews are here for a reason.
Trust them. Achilles
This trick has given me reactions that I would have never dreamed possible. I did this to a bank
teller and she almost had a heart attack and grabbed the bill(s) to check them and make sure they
were real. Imagine her surprise when she found out that they were genuine $100 bills!
