Possible , but Dream Prediction is less angle sensitive .

I would like to add that Tony Curtis made my very first prototype a few years back. The product was originally being handled by another and we were told Tony had moved and so was no longer making wallets. From there Dream Prediction was then offered to another manufacturer however they didn't end up being reliable so I was back to square one. After two years of this I finally found Alan Wong who helped make Dream Prediction a reality.
Tony makes fantastic products and I am so glad he reached out to me personally to let me know he is still in business. I look forward to working with Tony again soon.

I just ordered from Hocus Pocus - been awhile since I ordered from them. Look forward to receiving this.

I have now had the opportunity to perform Dream Prediction Elite recently on two different jobs and feel I am in a position to offer can a review.

To start, let me say the quality of props are really first rate. The leather used in the wallet seems to be of high grade quality, that I expect should last a good life. I like the fact that everything is self contained and I was able to put it all in my inside jacket pocket. Nothing bulky and once I found the right pen it closed nicely. Additionally, a nice point is that I was able to change presentations for each job showing and have other gigs coming up where I can customize this to fit.

One small negative that I did find, was because it's new leather, the envelope didn't fit in the first time. However, after breaking it in a bit I had no problem. Where the envelope goes in the wallet I just stretched it a little and was fine. Also, the other thing is that you will need to get the right pen. I chose a nice looking pen after taking the wallet to the store to make sure it would fit easily. Two small points.

I do like the idea of using the notepad for other things as suggested in the explanation. It gives the pad reason for being in your pocket - even just to take notes down with. I love Magic Squares and will be using the pad for this routine as well.

When you get this you'll need to spend a few minutes preparing your final prediction. I chose to have it written on the back of my business card and after the first performance I realized it was a smart move because people were showing the card around. I chose to perform this when I had slightly larger crowds as it plays nice and big - so for groups of 4 or more it's perfect.

I'm glad it came with 10 envelopes because while they are protected by the wallet I feel I'll go through them over the next year or so, and it did say on the DVD that replacements are available.

The actual handling is easy to do and happens during such a natural moment that it really goes undetected. Well, thought out and nothing for me to worry about. It's great when a worker shares as much as they can about something that they have worked on for a long period of time.

So far, I performed this walkabout at both a wedding and in a hospitality suite and the effect was easy to perform, with no problems.

Overall, I would say I'm very happy with this purchase. The reactions have been strong, and I can see it becoming a staple in my walkabout. I'm not a mentalist but do some 'mental' type effects within my walkabout magic set so it's fits my style perfectly.

I'm glad you guys are using this. It's been a staple of my act for a while now and I'm really pleased to hear people are making it their own and are using it. I had a friend at the Magic Castle recently and he saw another performer using DP in their act there. I also prefer the business card inside also because it adds to the weight.

You will have to loosen the envelope part of the wallet as it's brand new leather and stiff but it only needs a few tugs to loosen it. The pen I use I bought at Staples and fits perfectly. Just take the wallet with you to a stationary store and get a nice pen that fits.

Remember to share stories on the FB group and any tips and advice for others.

I really like this. Its a great method and it is easy to perform. I will definitely be using this one for sure.

My one complaint is the price- yes, its expensive. The quality is top notch, don't get me wrong, and while people have pointed out that they pay that much for a good gimmicked wallet- the difference here is that we're paying for a high quality wallet/holder, but its ungimmicked. So take that for what its worth.

This is powerful stuff and the whole piece is self contained- highly recommend if you are OK with the price tag.

You can see our review from 27:16 on this weeks Saturn Product Review.

http://www.saturnmagic.co.uk/saturn-prod......w-1.html

We mention that a gimmicked wallet will cost you as much as this, but this is custom made which is also the case with a gimmick wallet so the cost if you think about it is still going to be much the same.

How would this go with a lottery ticket in the envelope?

A lottery ticket will work fine with this.

I received it today.

Just ruined 2 enveloppes because my "gimmick" get stuck inside and doesn't fall correctly even if I'm using Paul's tips. Also, the enveloppes are way too transparent I think which is not acceptable when using this trick..

The "wallet" is fine, great quality.

Disappointed for that price for now, will experiment a little more and give your my future toughts on this.

Hi Alex
Try repositionable glue that way you can unstick and play around with it.

Yup, instead of a full business card, I now use a folded one and seems to work better. Feel pretty confident about the impact of it, first reactions of layment should justify the price tag Smile

Thanks TuneHV Smile Looks like the folded business card is working fine. Still worrying about the transparency of the envelope, maybe it's just me and people won't notice it ! The more I'm working with it, the more I like it. I love the fact it's all self contained Smile

Lottery Ticket will work inside the envelope . However , I will not recommend using lottery ticket . I think there are way to much fumbling when you secretly write the prediction . Reason been you have to unfold and fold a lot of times . ( I hope I am not revealing too much here ) . Maybe it's just me , but I don't think I can perform it without getting caught . I have no problems at all with business card predictions and red paper prediction . I have made 4 envelopes already with different prediction papers inside them . Really enjoyed this product .
