How to Rig a Set of Playing
This web site will show you how to successfully rig a deck for less
$5 or free if you possess the materials already! There are countless of
marked cards selling on the internet using this same
technique but selling for $20+. If you have the supplies listed, the
same trick can be created absolutely free. This is a DIY faq of how to
mark your own set of cards.
Note: This web site does not encourage gambling in any way, shape, or
form. It is solely for the purpose of magic and entertainment. User
discretion is advised.
First of all, here are the supplies you will need:
- 1 deck of Bicycle
playing cards. I recommend getting the red deck as it
is harder for others to notice. (You can use non-Bicycle playing cards
but this tutorial focuses on the Bicycle
brand ONLY) - $3.49
Bicycle Deck of Cards
- a RED
permanent marker; Sharpie brand is preferred. - $1.99
Locate the dotted circles on the back of a card. There are FOUR
of them in total.
Use your red permanent marker to carefully shade in these circles
according to this code. Avoid blotting and make sure to color in ALL four
circles and make sure you turn the card upside down before marking the
other circles. Do this process for all 52 cards in the deck.
Here is an example:
The left circle depicts what the card is, ace through king.
This card is a King represented by a K in the left
It is also a Spade designated by the
on the right
Practice. Practice. Practice. Memorize the coding system and practice
using this deck with your friends or by yourself. Beat up the deck a
bit if it is new so people won't notice it as easily.
Go out and perform. DO NOT MAKE IT OBVIOUS BY LOOKING AT THE BACK OF
THE PERSON'S CARDS. A tip I found to be successful is to maintain a
conversation with the person.
Pocket Jacks, baby!
