I love this fast visual trick and once again Rick as always does such a great job of explaining it
and adding useful tips. To move the trick from a great close visual trick to an even more hands-on
closeup trick, I have added the following. In closeup situations the audience always asks things
like are those real??? As a convincer, if you keep a firm grip on the front and back of one of the
bills in the fan, you can easily take one out of the fan and show the front and back and then return
it to the fan. For even more astonishment, I place a real $100 bill second to last in the stack.
The real bill will not flash when you display the paper looking display and when you change them all
to $100 bills in the fan if an audience member ask if they are real, you can take out the real $100
bill to hand to them for very close inspection. With these additions, I get even more of a reaction
from my audience. I hope others find these additions useful to their performance.

This is one of those "I should have known better" type tricks. Looking at the performance, in I
knew the method, I was just hoping there would be more to it. If you want to make this on your own,
just look at the performance and create it with real cash. Even if it's just real $1 bills it'll be
FAR MORE impressive and practical than this overpriced nonsense. I don't even see an application
for what I wasted my money on. This is the only trick on penguin I've ever rated at a 1.

Okay so, I KNOW it's my fault for buying this trick, so I can't really say i'm an exception; The
price is very high for a cheap version of a Svengali deck. The bills are too shiny to do in front of
others, the bills themselves give you away because it says "Magic Bill" on it. Rick says he got it
exclusively in China. Well, this is the "Chinese" quality that we all joke about. It's not made
well, and cannot fool any average person. This is more of a camera trick/gag. We all knew it was a
stupid trick to buy but we did it anyway. Anyways, Rick did a great job teaching it at least.

Trick is very visual, and like Rick says you can perform this thing right out of the Box.
One downside is the bills are shiny, however no one is going to believe you used real bills for
such a quick trick anyhow. So I still like it, and I even have made a joke or two when sober adults
ask to examine the bills, I say "of course you can't! Do you know how long it took to get it to look
that good!" a wink or smile after gets a laugh and serves as a good transition to introduce the next

Ok.... Got this as a Christmas present... I liked it... It was on my wish list..... Thank you to my
awesome wife for supporting my magic habit..
We hand some friends over. And mind you they have
all seen me do magic on countless occasions.. They asked to see some magic.. And I asked if you
could do real magic what would you do. The first thing out of one of their mouths was make
hundreds.... yes they specifically said make hundreds!!! This was one of those Paul Harris moments
that I O so love. Did flash cash and boom.. It killed on so many levels! Really like this trick so
much.. I get that I can't rely on mirical moments. So I'm working it into my hundi 500 routine that
has treated me so well! Simple, easy, and just good.....

Yup this is a very fine illusion.
Love Rick's explanation.
The trick is fast to learn and
easy to do.
A good opener for a gambling routine or just to
get the folk's attention.

Really like this effect, because it incorporates $100 bills that I don't have to supply! They're not
real, but they look great. In fact, my family usually runs from my magic, but they wanted to see
this over and over again!

The "Sven" methodology has been around for a long time of course and varied products have been
developed with that method in mind. Flash Cash is yet another one and it certainly has it's place in
the magic world. However, I gave this 3 stars because in my humble opinion, it will not fool anyone
who knows what a real $100 bill looks like, if in fact, that is supposed to be one of it's purposes.
A presentation where you need a quicky to enhance your scrip, then yes, it certainly can be helpful.
Clever use of the "swen" methodology but for me, a little too expensive for what I would use this

Flash Cash is excellent. Size of bills makes this visible for platform or stage performances. I
work senior centers and one of the most commented on effects is the Six Bill Repeat using $100
bills. I have an excellent set of reproduced bills that look real and are made of long lasting
material. I am always asked during the performance - "Teach me (us) this trick!". I think Flash Cash
would be an excellent ending for the bill repeat.
