Follow the routine as outlined under the "Effect." At that point in the proceedings when the spectators hand you the remaining money on the table after each has taken his winnings...simply note the amount. It will be anywhere from $1,000 to $7,000.
Whatever the amount...that is the number that determines WHICH prediction envelope you remove from your pocket. Simple? You bet it is. Suppose when you are handed the money remaining on the table, you receive $5,000. Immediately, you know to remove prediction envelope number 5 from your jacket pocket. The prediction in that envelope will match where each spectator went...what he played...how much he won...and how much he now has in his possession. The amounts that can be left over are $1,000, $2,000, $3,000, $5,000, $6,000 and $7,000.
Notice there's no $4,000. That's the reason there's no prediction number 4.
Vegas Mentalism is so easy to perform. So automatic, you can devote most of your energy and thought to presentation. When they hand you the left over money, make a comment like, Looks as if you fellows almost broke the bank. Continue by stating, But just to prove the old adage that you can't beat the house...Ill wager the amount in my possession against everything you fellows have in yours. And just to make it interesting, I'll propose a wager that's practically impossible for me to win. If I correctly predicted earlier today where each of you would in fact gamble...what games you each would play...and exactly how much you each now have in your possession...then I win it all. However, if I'm wrong...then you'll split the amount of money I have left. Have the prediction envelope opened and your prediction read aloud. Ask the spectator reading the prediction to pause after each paragraph. In other words, after the spectator reads your prediction concerning gambler number one...stop and verify with the first spectator whether or not your prediction is correct. When all three predictions have been read and verified that you are 100% correct, collect the money and chips from each of the three would-be gamblers and call for the audience to give the losers a nice round of applause.
