The Lucky Key



This is brilliant fun to perform anywhere.  So well made and with no sleight of hand I can relax and fool everyone. They genuinely thought they could win!?! Highly recommended! - David G

Here is a truly top-quality item for a flawless and outstanding performance of this classic of mental magic.

You ask a spectator if they want to play a game of chance. You pull out a very high denomination banknote and say that you will put it at stake... whoever wins will be given the banknote as a prize! You slip the banknote into a flat, clear plexiglass container and lock it with a padlock.

Now, you introduce eight small keys and show that only one opens the padlock. The eight keys are dropped into a glass and thoroughly mixed up. Now, one at a time, the spectators pick a key and try their chance at opening the padlock.

Needless to say, they won't succeed at opening it. In the end, you (or even one of the spectators) try the last key that was not chosen, and sure enough, it opens the padlock. After the high-tension performance, you can finally relax, take your money back and receive your well-deserved applause.

It is an effect that you can carry in your pocket but will be entertaining even for the largest of stages.

• The gimmick is PERFECT.
• No manipulation is required, and no keys are secretly exchanged.
• The custom-made container is made of high-quality crystal clear plexiglass.
• The effect is very easy to perform, so you can concentrate on the presentation.
• Video instructions are supplied. You can use banknotes of any value and country (Pounds, Dollars etc.). Use your own banknote and wine glass.
