I love to use these decks. I can do most tricks with them, and there cheap to get in my area. You cant do things like a reversed card effect, like Triumph with them or faro them because the corners are trimed off at the corners.

Doing a cardshark act with these cards adds to the credibility of what your doing.

Do you use casino cards with your routines ? Are they cheap to get in your area ? The store down the street from me sells them for 50 cents a pack.

Logan,

They're good to use and then give away when you're done performing.

There is a very good effect with casino decks in Mike Porstmann's lecture notes:

Basically, my variation looks like this: you show an 8X10 map of all the casinos in Las Vegas. Spectator names any card. That card is removed from a deck of cards made up of cards from all casinos (e.g., Mirage, Golden Nugget, etc., etc.). It's the ONLY Golden Nugget card in the deck. Strange that you picked the only Golden Nugget card in the deck, you say, as you turn over the map to show a picture of the Golden Nugget on the other side.

I've used them before. They're a dollar were i'm at currently.
I've gotten a bunch from Las Vegas casino stores. They're around a dollar or 2 over there. I don't remember exactly. Like Logan mentions, what peeves me about them is that I can't use them for Triumph or faro effects.

An old video I found where I put them to use.
