Sounds like you HAVE to hand the bills out to end clean regardless of which method you use. Is this true?

Not at all. If you don"t hand the bills out you're as clean as you would be with EB. In fact, HO 500 gives you complete freedom with the last bill whereas EB you're stuck.

I have the next 3 days off of work, the second I can get out the house and infront of some strangers/crowd I will have camera's rolling. Can't wait to see the reactions this gets! Smile

Hey Piz, did you take the video down? I couldn't get it to come up.

Thanks,

This takes this effect to a whole new level. I lov EB but always danced around the "Let me see those Dollars" questions. It really was never a difficult problem but switching in HO 500 was just the ending I needed to make it perfect.

Mike,that made me smile(thanks).
Handing out the bills does make it stronger,whether people ask to see them or not, they want to!
As your playing with more of the spectators senses.
All the multi bill changes look great as they have the fantasy factor involved.
You don't even have to do a trick at all and just flash five hundred bucks and it gets anyones blood pumping!
handing out all the bills Seconds after the bills change and their brain is still buzzing enhances the effect even further becaues of the extra senses that are being used on the spectator,so just hand them out and observe the spectators facial expressions.
Even if you don't hand the bills out,people are still gonna love this type of effect because of the fantasy factor.
My Opinion
As far as not trusting people handling your money,if I'm that concerned about the people I'm performing for,i would never even show them I had five hundred bucks on me to begin with.
Any social gathering,work place,resturant,gig ect..is safe,,as no one want's their friends to think their a theif,even if they are one.
The logic that you would not hand out that kind of money and the spectators naturally understand that makes sense,but from my experience and asking spectators for their bills for other effects with no problems puts me in a position of "i can take your money,make it vanish,tear and restore it ect..but you can't touch mine and you should understand why!
No matter what version of the multi bill change is done,will get great reactions but putting them in their hands gives it another mental punch and kills the "trick bills theory" before it is even born.
I truly wanted to take the multi bill change and make it stronger for the spectators by using more of their senses (touch) and getting rid of the only guess most any spectator will come up with,which would be correct,as I want to wow them,but I wanted the mystery to be deeper psychologically.
Whether they ask or not,they really do want to see all those bills and when you let them,the rabit hole just got deeper.

Even though the gimmick is very fooling even to magicians,i truly had the spectators in mind when creating HandOut 500.

Thanks again Mike for your post,
Steve

Is it true that at least one of the bills won't be redeemable if you have to deconstruct the gimmick?

No, that is not true. You can tape any of the bills back together and use them assuming you save their counterparts. Steve goes over this in the DVD.

Cheers!

^^^. Bill is correct. I placed the unused bills in an envelope and put it in a safe place just incase I need them! Tape will do the trick! Another important point is Steve describes away that you do not have to lose a 100 bill for the trick. Very simple and looks great.

Cost me a total of six bucks to build mine and I can spend the six bucks if I got that desperate.

Hi Piz Please re-upload your video. I'd love to see your video. youtube says your video was removed by user. I just want to say I love Handout 500. I used to do Hundy 500 and this is by far so much better. Thank you Steve for creating a wonderful piece of magic.

I'm doing a new one this coming weekend, there were a few things in that presentation I was not satisfied with. Anyone who knows me will tell you how much of a perfectionist I am, from personal to work.

I will re-upload the vid for you folks who have not seen it, will be taking it back down within the the next 24. Will present the link shortly.

Can you do Extreme Burn style changes with this gimmick? I much prefer the look of Extreme Burn to the 'folding over a section of the notes' thing. Love the clean ending though.
