I lucked out and saw this a year ago. Instantly loved it. Obviously, the thing that makes this
change so awesome is that after the change happens, you can show both sides of the bill. But there
are other plusses:
1) It's so much better for stage than the standard thumb tip bill
transportation because from far away, a $1 and a $100 look pretty damn similar. But a regular bill
looks VERY different from a Monopoly bill or coupon. This opens up lots of doors for you.
2) You don't need a thumb tip AND the change is super visual.
Seriously, between this
and Bizzaro's Bill Breaker, nobody should be performing the classic/thumb tip bill transpo any more.
This are both massive steps in the right direction.
And, yeah, less than $10. What more do

This is a NICE and cheap bill change. They give you everything in the download except the craft
tools and real dollar bill so you don't need to go out and buy some monopoly money to make this.
It's not hard to make and the change is excellent. I've always been a fan of Monopoly money for
magic. It's a fun past time we recognize and changing the fake money into real money is a natural
One of my favorite effect with a monopoly dollar is "MisMade Monopoly" by
Sankey. It's a mismade bill but with monopoly money that's easy to make at home. You can find it in
his excellent book set but it's also on Sankey's Best Magic w/Ordinary Objects by Jay Sankey.
That would be a great follow up to this effect if someone says "Hey can you show my friend that
trick where you changed a monopoly dollar into a real dollar?!"
For a few dollars... It's
well worth the investment. Awesome job Nick!

What can I say, this young man took the bill change to the next level and yes with this you could
hand the bill out for examination not hard to figure out how to end clean that's why he did not go
into details. Let me say that one more time. You can easily come up with a way to end clean and hand
the bill out for examination or to give the bill away . Clever young man indeed:)

this effect is fantastic! i am a performer from Australia and here down under our money is coated
with a plastic making it diffiult to keep folded ect. the way this effect is routined solved that
issue for me and i was able to make it up easily in like 5 minutes! its a great bill switch that is
different from other methods used in the past and has many, many great possibilities! :)

I have been looking for a great money change effect you can actually hand out at the end for
examination or spending. This one meets the criteria. It's relatively easy to make, and by the
simple substitution of double-sided tape instead of glue at the last part, you are able to ditch the
gimmick and hand out the bill. No need to switch the bill like other methods out there!
receive the PDFs needed to make the coupon, ATM receipt, and of course the Monopoly $1 or $100
bills. That lets you play around with it, but it should be noted you can do this will actual
Monopoly money so you can use any currency you want. A little angle-specific in that you can't do it
surrounded, but you can have a crowd around and not have a problem. Definitely a great buy and worth

I have only just watched this and to be honest the visuals on this are the best! The only bad thing
is that this is not going to be permanently $4.95! get this now.

The visual change is stellar. Very fluid and will blow people away. However. This trick will cost
you. He states to make the gimmick, you need to copy part of a bill, but I have tried 3
scanner/printers and none of them would copy even part of the bill due to security reasons. I am
probably now on some gov list somewhere because I tried several times to make it work. It wouldn't
and said it is prohibited, so in order to make the gimmick it will cost you two bills, so I suggest
making this out of $1 bills. Another downside, it is angle specific and the spectator needs to be
more in front of you than to the side. Last but not least, you definitely cannot hand out the bill
afterwards. So the description is a little misleading, it leads you to believe you can make play
money turn into real money and pay the clerk with it. This is not the case. Other than those
mentioned above, it is a great trick. I recommend it.

After I sent in my review I read the other reviews.
The consensus seems to be that I was
wrong-- it's a great trick and the bill could be handed out by [edited to protect secret]
I'm an amature with limited abilities (notice the name), so I wrote my review from that
Apologies to Mr. Diffatte.

I bought this because I saw he had a DEVO shirt on and was like...ok he's awesome and then I watched
the method and was like....wow, this is really good and something I will use. The gimmick is easy to
construct and fools people. Buy it.
