“Luke Jermay has done for Blackjack, what Vernon did for Poker Deals. This is literally a game changer." Michael Weber

“HIT is simple proof that Luke Jermay has made a casual deal with the Devil. I was delighted when he shared this with me some time back. Now, it’s your turn to be delighted.” Max Maven

“Hit is fantastic! Finally we have a powerful and direct mentalism effect that brings the engagement and romance of gambling demonstrations without any compromise. Jermays amazing routine makes your audience never want to play cards with strangers” Lu Chen

"Hit" is a sensational new routine about the power of choice. Perfect for mentalists and magicians alike, the plot couldn't be simpler. There are always two hands of Blackjack, and despite COMPLETE freedom in each phase, the spectator always leaves you with the winning hand. In the first phase, the spectator chooses from two hands with all cards face down. You're the winner. In the second phase, two of the cards are turned face up and the spectator is allowed to swap around ANY card she likes. You're STILL the winner. In the last last phase, all the cards except one mystery card are turned up. You still win.

"Hit" is entirely self-working and comes with the special cards required to perform it. You can even perform it in virtual shows. The clever, simple gimmicks will last a lifetime and are easy to use and reuse in real time. "Hit" also comes with a 67 minute video teaching multiple routines in great detail.

The true benefit of "Hit" is that it's an opportunity to interact with a spectator on a personal and real level. "Hit" isn't about the cards or the game; it's about the choices a spectator makes. By adding "Hit" to your repertoire, you're adding a deeply fooling, personal routine.

“Hit is commercial, fooling and direct. It yet again demonstrates Luke Jermay is one of the most creative minds in magic.” Asi Wind

“Luke Jermay’s “Hit” is a direct feat of mind control and influence. It has all the power of ten-card poker but without the inherent limitations: your participants do not need to know the rank of hands for a game nobody plays; they need only to know simple arithmetic. “Hit” is also yet another example of Jermay’s wonderful approach to presentation, which transforms the simplest of tricks into a real piece of magic.” Jared Kopf

“Beautiful... it’s just, flat out, a beautiful routine. Luke makes it so open and engaging, you’re left too astounded to be offended by losing so many times!” Jeremy Griffith (@lost_angelus)

“Luke is one of those very few thinkers who are able to take a premise in magic that everybody thought to be as simple as can be, take it apart, spend years analyzing it, and give us a twist that is not only simplified but much more practical for an entire continent... and yes, actually the whole planet. Hit is destined to be a hit!” Ondrej Psenicka

“Hit is great! A very clever tool along with some well thought through routines. Luke brings clarity to something which can often be very confusing.” Andrew Frost (@sleightlyobsessed)

Note— Currently, the supplied cards come in Bicycle Rider backs.

  • Simon asks: Looks great!. Please can you tell me whether the gimmicks are compatible with any deck? If not, which deck are they compatible with? Thanks.

    • 1. Luke Jermay (creator) responds: The product is supplied with gimmicks for red backed Phoenix deck. However, it is VERY easy to make gimmicks in a matter of minutes for any deck you wish, this is what I personally do.
  • Francesco asks: Can I repeat the routine to the same person or the outcomes will always be the same? Does this require difficult sleight of hands? Thanks

    • 1. Luke Jermay (creator) responds: Hi! The effect is totally self working. It does hold up to repeat performances, each phase remains exactly the same each time. However some small, likely invisible to the spectator, differences in the hands of cards between performances will happen.
  • Gerald asks: Hello, Is this the same routine from your MasterClass you did here a few months back? I think I even asked if those cards were coming available, thanks! Gerald T

    • 1. Luke Jermay (creator) responds: Yes! However the instructional video includes several additional different routines, all of different themes and premises, that were not shown in the masterclass.
  • Craig asks: So if I'm understanding the answers to the above questions correctly, I easily could make my own gimmicks from bicycle back cards?

    • 1. Luke Jermay (creator) responds: Yes, this is what I do whenever I want to match a specific deck and cover this on the instructional video.
  • Clifton asks: From what has been stated, I assume the cards cannot be handed out for inspection. Correct?

    • 1. Luke Jermay (creator) responds: This isn’t correct. The routine is structured so that the spectators handle cards at various points but the gimmicks are not possible to hand out for inspection. Honestly, with this routine there is No need at all to offer for inspection, this topic is briefly discussed in the teaching video.
  • Norman asks: Can a complete novice do this routine ?

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: totally. there's no sleight of hand involved at all.
  • Eric asks: WWWD?

    • 1. Luke Jermay (creator) responds: This. Weber says of this routine “Jermay has done for blackjack what Vernon did for poker deals. This is literally a game changer.”
  • Robert asks: Is it an instant download so we can start learning with our own cards until the gimmicks arrive?

    • 1. Adam answers: Yes, the download is in your account right away, and you can make your own gimmicks as Luke suggests.
    Post an answer to this question
  • Ben asks: Without wishing to expose, is card splitting needed to create home-made gaffs of the same standard as those supplied?

    • 1. Luke Jermay (creator) responds: Splitting cards would probably help with the construction of the gimmicks, however, as covered in the instructional video I personally do not.
  • Michael asks: In the video there is a deck of cards from which the hands are dealt. Do you receive the matching deck with the gimmicks or just the gimmicks please?

    • 1. Luke Jermay (creator) responds: Hi! Just the gimmicks, which are to be used with a deck of red Phoenix back playing cards. However, it is VERY easy to make your own gimmicks, using whatever deck you desire.
  • Alan asks: When will the Phoenix decks be back in stock? #1 selling trick right now but you can't buy the deck to go with the gimmicks, doesn't make sense. I understand the gimmicks can be made but it seems like poor timing on the release of HIT if you can't get the deck as well.

    • 1. Luke Jermay (creator) responds: Hi, I’m certain V Inc are working on getting the decks back in stock. If very pressing I would suggest heading directly to the Card Shark website who produce the deck.
  • Iain asks: Hi In the video it shows Luke dealing each round off the deck. Do we get multiple gaff cards so we can perform it as shown in the video or is the video using multiple copies of the gaff cards?

    • 1. Luke Jermay (creator) responds: Exactly as shown in the video is what the cards supplied allow you to perform. Multiple gimmicks are included. The full, unedited performance, is faithful to what you will be able to perform moments after learning the secret with the cards included.
  • Nathan asks: In the set I received from another dealer, I got 1 misprinted gimmick. Do you sell the set with the properly printed gimmick?

    • 1. Marc answers: Please email magic@vanishingincmagic.com and they will be happy to help
    • 2. Ceri answers: Nathan, did you get a response to your problem? My printed gimmicks have the same "error", however, I have been given a work around response which is a later "adaptation" Jermay came up with. However, online magic communities state this mis-print only happens in Bicycle and Phoenix sets! To me it feels like I have been sold a defective set of gimmicks as I am not performing the routine I have paid for. Hope that makes sense!
    Post an answer to this question
  • mac asks: hi, are there refills available for this? I know the gimmicks can be made, but is it possible to just purchase a spare set or do i need to purchase the whole thing again? thanks

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: Unfortunately at this time, we do not have refills available.
  • Richard asks: In each phase the spectator loses. Is it possible to allow the spectator to win?

    • 1. Jim answers: Technically, the answer is yes. You will have to restructure some of the routine, so that the phases make sense.

Customer reviews for HIT (Luke Jermay)

Reviewer

Quentin

I was very lucky and bought a pre-release version at Blackpool. It's the best gambling effect I've ever seen and it's the only one that I will ever do. It works every time and it's so much fun to watch how engaged and competitive your participants become. I'd recommend this to any card magciian.

 
Reviewer

Gino

I LOVE THIS TRICK. It's super easy to do and the gimmicks hide in any deck. It's also cheap.

 
Reviewer

Guy

I've met Luke a few times and have seen him do this on multiple occasions. I am always struck by how engaging it is. No matter who you are performing for, they seem to be genuinely interested. How often can you say that about gambling routines! In addition, I view this routine as modular. You can make it as short, or as long as you like.

 
Reviewer

Utah

Anything from Luke seems to live up to expectations. This is another gem, from a great performer. I am drawn to how easy the premise is to understand. Too often with gambling routines, the premise is convoluted and hard to explain. Blackjack is easy though. I'm excited to do this in my Zoom shows. I was thrilled to find out it can work virtually too!

 
Reviewer

Scott

Amazing! Best part of his master class lecture. It’s become a HUGE favorite of my zoom show.

 
Reviewer

Nick

Such a great routine. As much as I enjoy gambling routines, I’ve shied away from performing them as I lack some of requisite technical skills. THIS routine though is much simpler to perform and, for the audience, simpler to understand and follow. Some brilliant thinking by Luke. One of my favourite purchases of the year.

 
Reviewer

Andrew

When I watched this on the Masterclass I couldn't wait for its release! Now that I have it I am even more excited to perform. Its such a clever routine and totally self working. Once again Luke Jermey goes into such great depth in the instructional video with clear and concise steps in how to perform the excellent influence routine. He is definitely one of the best out there! Also a quick note about how quick Vanishing Inc delivered my product! Top quality service

 
Reviewer

Dan

This is without a question an effect that truly deserves the Excellent rating! The effect, the method, the presentations and the explanations are all a real worker could wish for. I also have to say Luke is an extremely likable host without ever trying to be too smart or funny. A sincere presentation! Absolutely a 10 out of 10.

I was kinda on the fence with this due to a couple of the other comments etc....especially to the comments about "not getting what you see", using diffent cards, phoenix backs etc....however decided to take the plunge and very glad I did.

I generally love lukes stuff and have alot of his projects, I really love his laid back teaching style and he is very thorough.
My cards were red bicycle backs which made me happy, however I am also going to take lukes advise and make myself my own set of gimmicks, for all the reasons he explains in the explanation.
The trick is very easy, "pretty much" sleight less and really packs a punch with, what I thought, hints of derren brown style.
In short this is a really great trick and you will not be disappointed at all.

 
Reviewer

Steven

Luke Jermay DOES NOT disappoint. This is quite a versatile effect which will suit the conjuror, mentalist, bizzarist and the like. The pendulum take is KILLER. Thanks, Luke.

 
Reviewer

Robert

Excellent effect and discussion. HIT, I believe, will become a classic effect because of the fairness and simplicity that the spectator experiences. I especially like the subtle performance points such as slickly changing the orientation of the gimmick in front of the spectators with a normal gesture of head and hands. The pendulum alternative effect involves the spectator much more than most such effects. I always enjoy listening to Luke Jermay. His understanding of psychology and spectator management is as good as anyone and he teaches it so well. Plus you can easily make your own gimmicks. How often do you see that?

 
Reviewer

Antonello

I really like the effect. It's well explained and It's not true – as read in some other comments– that Luke words are gibberish. My main complain it's in the product. You'll receive a gimmick that you probably don't need and Luke himself says he doesn't use it – but you pay for it anyway – and if you decide to use it, you'll need to also buy a specific deck of cards that is out-of-stock for quite some times now on Vanishing Inc. This download costs a quarter of the 3+ hrs long Luke Jermay masterclass, which contains this effect. You'll probably be better off by buying the masterclass (from a price-per-content perspective). Anyway, I loved the effect even if it's probably overpriced.

 
Reviewer

Steven

Disappointed doesn't come with s full deck now I either have to buy a full phoenix deck or make my own gimmick from a deck I own .

 
Reviewer

Fred

The problem is not the trick, it's the explanation. I could understand the spectator when he talked, but Luke's words were gibberish. He talks too fast and with his heavy accent, it's almost impossible for an American to understand. I've wasted my money!
