The Gamble Card Trick

The Gamble Card Trick is a very simple trick which uses three cards. They can be any three cards of your choosing such as Ace Two Three of clubs, King Queen Jack of hearts as long as they are in an order.  

If you wish to use the seven of hearts, the eight of diamonds and the nine of spades that is also possible, but it must be easy to follow.

This trick is also great for winning money.  Many people enjoy a punt and if you offer two to one then people may have a go at guessing where the card lays at the end.

Here at Free Magic Tricks and Illusions we want you to use the sleights we teach and this trick is fantastic for putting your Double Lift practice into action. If you can double lift then you can perform this. I will explain on the reveal how to do a near perfect Double Lift with only three cards...

The Gamble Card Trick

Did you see the double lifts? They were there!!

As you will learn below the sleight is very easy to perform just by putting the correct pressure onto the cards, you can then split the top two cards off the pile to leave just one in your hand.  The two cards are then easy to turn over and look like just one card!! Watch the performance below..

Now heed the advice from the greatest magicians which is to practice often and when you become proficient at this, practice some more. Have fun with it.

Try it out on your friends and maybe ask them to put a wager on it... But it will always be a great trick to add to your repertoire.

Remember to create your very own patter to each trick you learn. Why not watch the double lift video and create your own trick with the cards. People love a good story too so why not make one up and perform this trick as much as you can.
