Against all Odds by Alakazam Magic
If there is one thing we all have in common it's that everybody wishes they could predict the Lottery and with odd of almost 14,000,000 to 1 it seems very unlikely!
Lottery fever is a worldwide phenomenon and there was a time you couldn't walk in to a shop without seeing some novelty way of generating your numbers.
The Lottery Deck is one of those ways. The idea is simple, mix the deck, select six cards and take you chance! BUT what if nothing was left to chance? What if you could actually predict the lottery?
Based on an idea by Mark Elsdon (the rights to which were purchased by Alakazam almost 10 years ago) The Alakazam team have added a new design, more kickers, new handlings and new ideas!
Against All Odds is a true coming together of minds
Mark Elsdon, Peter Nardi, Dave Loosley And Andy Smith have each played with this incredible routine for the past few years and now it time to share the routines and ideas with you.
Against All Odds is a custom designed and printed deck which looks perfect in every way.
After a very fair mixing and selection procedure (no equivoque) you spectator is left with 6 cards each depicting a different number lottery ball.
You now hand them a Lottery ticket with exactly the same numbers on! (The ticket may even be handed to them before the effect even begins)
Against All Odds has taken this incredible plot and made the selection process seem so free and fair, Your spectator will suspect nothing and feel like they have made every decision themselves yet, "The Numbers Will Always Match Perfectly"!
Against All Odds complete with:
- Custom Printed Deck
- Multiple handling's for both close up, Parlour and stage
- Bonus cards and routine
With Against All Odds in your pocket you are set to perform a 5-10 min close up or cabaret set that you spectators will not forget.
Against All Odds of trick is easy to learn, easy to use and not like any other pick a card trick.
".. the shift from playing cards to a colorful specialized pack of “lotto cards” does make it perhaps a bit more visually appealing and certainly more interesting to many a layperson." -Francis Menotti, Magic Magazine
