Watch Singapore Magic Duo’s Successful 4D Lottery Prediction Act on YouTube
Last week, on 27 Jan 2010, in front of a live audience of media, fans and the general public, “Singapore’s celebrity magic duo” (Channel News Asia), J C Sum & ‘Magic Babe’ Ning, succeeded in their prediction of the top prize 4D numbers “5853”.
In a surprise twist, before the prediction was shown, it was revealed that a cheque for $10,000, written out to the Children’s Cancer Foundation, had also been placed into the red envelope one week ago, along with the prediction.
Only then, was the typewritten & signed prediction shown to the audience to be 100% correct.
In a final twist, the magic duo revealed that while they did correctly predict the top prize winning number, they intentionally bought a lottery ticket with a number that they knew would not win; the numbers “0000”.
J C & Ning explained: “We stressed from the start that we do not condone or encourage gambling. If we had bought a winning ticket, we would have totally contradicted this claim. Furthermore, when we make a donation to a charitable cause, in this case, the Children’s Cancer Foundation, it must be from our own hard-earned money, just like any other Singaporean in any other profession.”
The official video, entitled “The Impossible 4D Prediction: The Story of a Psychological Illusion”, is 10 minutes long and shows the entire weeklong stunt in a unique storytelling format.
