Lottery by Abbott’s(c. 1982) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
A clean utility device for switching pretty much anything that fits on the tray: cards, envelopes, bills. With minimum practice you can time it right so it really looks like you just tip off the envelope from the tray. I still prefer Ken Allen’s Tricky Tray because it looks so thin and normal, but if you want to switch in something a little more this could be the way to go.
Effect: The magician displays a number of sealed envelopes, stating that one envelope contains a ten dollar bill. A number of spectators are invited to assist. They each have the privilege of choosing an envelope (positively a free choice), leaving one envelope for the magician. The spectators open their envelopes to find only a blank piece of paper. The performer opens the envelope left for him and removes the ten dollar bill! An Abbott quality product. Suitable for any type of act – mystery plus comedy. Easy to do. No sleights. A special tray is responsible for the success of the magician. This is a piece of apparatus which may be used in many other ways in addition to the effect described.
Approx. Price: $45.00 (2002) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
