Clever Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2017
I am giving this top stars for a few reasons,
1) the effect as a complete routine, will take spectators on a up and down journey , with the shock element of the “ hypnosis “
2) there is a clever subtlety taught here, that will make you smile , I am not giving away were , but for those that download this they will know :))
3) the teaching is clear & concise
4) all in all this is a small amount of theatre, that can play big

All Currency? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2017
I purchased this on the strength that in the email it clearly states any currency any language, and whilst it is true in the strictest sense the handling is definitely somewhat compromised with notes of different size, colour etc. Here in the UK we have always had different size notes and now the new plastic notes even have clear see through sections which really make the handling tricky and less natural. Great idea and if you live in the USA happy days.

Good trick and will be working on it Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2017
I like the trick.I'll be using this.

Good camera work and audio.
Well presented and explained.
Easy to create and setup.
I like Matt's explanation and alternate endings.

I'm not that crazy about the script's final reveal.
The "influence" seems a bit weak and without much purpose.
However, it is up to us to use what we have and make
it special for us. And this illusion allows us to do that.

Simply Awesome!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2017
I've got a few of Matt's routines and like them all. However, this one is easily my favorite! You've got mentalism connected to money. Does it get any more engaging than that!!!

A no-brainer to purchase!

Real World Mentalism Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2017
Profit is one of those "why didn't I think of that" illusions. In essence, you seemingly cause a person to mis-see some amount of money in the context of how you would make (steal) money using your powers.

Eventhough my persona is not that of a con man (at all), I was able to present it as an example of how I lost $20.

In fact, I found by asking if they'd trade $20 for the money they see, the reaction I got was stronger because very few people actually carry $50 bills (where a lot of people carry $20's). It's also more likely that you would trade $20 for $101.

Additionally, I use the "receipt" method he teaches at the end so I'm carrying less money (and have less invested in the illusion). Just a personal preference, though.

Pros
- Easy to make, carry, and present
- Well taught, including variations where you don't need $100 bills
- Especially like some of the "convincer" moves

Cons
- To perform as presented, you'll need to have a decent piece of money in your wallet that you never spend. As I mentioned earlier, there are methods to get around this (which he teaches)
- Gimmick will need to be recreated at times depending on how you made it in the first place (but that is inexpensive and quick)

This is a nice mentalism piece that steps away from "think of a word in this book". It is more Real-World in that many people would use it "for profit".

Matt teaches it clearly and includes a good section on alternatives for various parts. Worth a look if you are into mentalism.

Great Idea, Lacking Presentation Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2017
I'm a huge fan of Matt Mello and I think that this is a great idea. It's a sure fire way to convince someone that you are holding more money in your hands than you really are, similar to the Derren Brown stunt where he buys things with slips of paper.

I was a little confused with the presentation and in my experience with this type of magic you need to make things extra clear. The participant put some money in their pocket at the beginning and I'm really confused as to why. Is it part of the suggestion? Is it supposed to be some sort of a transposition? He's not clear on this and I'm not sure why you would do this. Because he's not clear the end of the trick just kinda fizzles out which is unfortunate.

This can be easily remedied with a more clear presentation.

If this lack of focus hurt your ability to perform the trick I'd give it a lower rating, but in this case you can still do the trick and you'll have a miracle on your hands if you do.

Fantastic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2017
Such an awesome Hypnosis miracle! It's really easy to do, doesn't require Hypnosis experience, and it's freaking amazing! The only thing you need to work on is you should have a good good patter set to really maximize the effect!

Fun Routine Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 9th, 2017
If you're staring out in mentalism this is a great routine to start off with. For the more experienced, the routine has numerous possibilities to make it your own, and there's great inspiration in this video as well. Great for walk around.

Easy and on demand Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 7th, 2017
Cons: None really, just be careful about putting money down on a table behind you. :)
Pros: Easy to do, portable, can have multiple setups in wallet

This is a brilliant method, and is very easy to do. It's even better that you get to involve two sets of spectators that are experiencing a different reality at the same time. This will absolutely give them a story to tell later on. You can also prep multiple gimmicks so that you can do this for a crowd and have them see different amounts, to keep them from reverse engineering the trick. Matt provides additional tips and endings as well.

My only drawback is that I don't really get how the original ending ties in, and I don't think the patter fully explains what's happening. The spectators had a good reaction, but I feel like they didn't even really get what just happened between them and their friend.

OK TRICK Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 12th, 2017
Matt didn't include any performances with the receipt, no closeups so we could see what the receipt said.

A few of the performances volunteers were confused as to what exactly transpired.

A more practiced and verbal enhancement of the patter is required.
