No Hands Card Trick

Effect: The spectator chooses a card. After a series of shuffles the spectator spells a magic word and finds his card. But the magician never touches the cards from the start of the trick to the end.

The Trick: Hand a full deck of cards to a volunteer to shuffle. (Make sure it's a FULL deck.) Ask the volunteer to deal the deck into two piles. Have them choose one of the piles and remember the bottom card.

Tell the volunteer to look at it but not to show you. Ask them to place the pile containing the bottom card on top of the other pile.

Spectator is asked to split the pack into two piles for this magic card trick.

Then ask the volunteer to deal the deck into four piles from left to right.

Pick up each pile and ask the volunteer if their card is in that pile. As you ask, reassemble the deck, making sure the pile with their card goes on the very top. Give the deck to the volunteer and have them deal the cards, one at a time face down on the table, spelling out the word "PRESTO". Have them turn the next card over. This is their chosen card!

This looks so covincing as you can remind them to look and check that you have not touched the cards with your hands during the trick.
