His illusionist so you would have to assume he somehow tricked us but he did say he had been working on it for an entire year.

Maybe his looked at statistics and worked out that at a certain time certain balls will come out, I don't know lol

One idea being mentioned is that he used a static split screen image.

Yeah, but I doubt he'd bother revealing the trick if it was that simple.

There was definite trickery. The first part wasn't trickery, which is impressive. The last part almost certainly was, though.

So basically you think he lied? Not saying you're wrong, maybe he did lie but I'm deciding to believe him on this one.

Haven't seen the explanation how he did it yet but is it not basically the same trick we've all seen countless times, by him and many others? Gets people from the audience or the street or wherever and they have to think of numbers or something then finally he opens an envelope or turns around a piece of paper or something revealing the exact same numbers all the volunteers chose. It just seems all that more incredible because it was the lottery numbers instead, but it's the same common trick everyone does isn't it? David Copperfield did it at the show I went to in Las Vegas where he took all sorts of info from members of the audience then finally revealed he already had all the same answers written down. Although I guess on that occasion those who gave info were quite possibly stooges.

Of course he lied. It was all misdirection.

Think about it for 2 minutes. The process is entirely random. How does getting people together and averaging out their lottery picks lead to getting all 6 numbers? Come on, Mark, don't be so gullible. He's brilliant at what he does and, like he says, he is always honest about being dishonest.
