Mystery Key Test by Amazo Magic

Price: $100.00

A suspenseful key test, in which a prize awaits the person selecting the correct key.

A transparent case is shown -- the magician opens it and inserts a bill that he says will be the prize. A padlock is presented, and a key is shown to open the padlock - 4 other keys do NOT open the lock. The bill is locked in the case by that padlock.

The magician then mixes the right key with the other four and puts them in a glass. Spectators from the audience mix them around so no one knows the location of the right key.

The five keys are then placed on the palm of the magician's hand and four spectators are each asked to choose a key.

One at a time, the keys selected by the spectators are inserted into the padlock, but none open it. The last key, the one left to the magician, opens the padlock. Everything can be examined.


  • The padlock with the 5 keys
  • A case to hold any banknote

(This review is for Mystery Key Test by Amazo Magic)
Great effect overall, but overpriced and no good presentations. It’s fun to involve multiple spectators, if possible and I present this in combination with a number prediction that is also locked in the case and it plays well. Good for one on one, parties, and corporate events. You have control at all times and this can be done without you ever touching the keys or lock if routined properly.

This one loses stars because there are no decent presentations provided, although you can search and create your own. It’s also extremely overpriced based on what you get. Comparables sell for half but don’t have the nicer case. You’re mostly paying for the bill holder. I actually ended up ordering baseball card holders and making my own hole so that I can carry it in my pocket (just folding the bill in half). This actually makes “the move” even less obvious.

Also deducting for the fact that there’s a certain something on the bottom that’s unusual to most locks, that a keen spectator may notice. This can be explained away or will hardly be noticed if presented properly, but it seems like an unnecessary design flaw. Overall though, this is lots of fun and I would recommend.
