Awesome, he got them all! All my guesses on how he was going to do it were wrong, the lotto website/ceefax didn't have the numbers before, it seemed truly live.

The stand he had the numbers on didn't look like some easily manipulated prop, so I am REALLY REALLY curious now!

I'm always sus about Derren but this WAS CRAZY!!
Ch4 9pm on friday for his technique. I really want to know the trick but he will probably just say he has been concentrating on numbers for a while or something.

i don't know who's the guy is, but if he mastered technique properly and have people believing him i know how it works..

first he just pics any 6 numbers, so people runs to grab lottery, fill those numbers up

and then it works as 'energy' rule, they sit home there in front of the tellys and sends energies to those numbers, they have in front of them,

so more energies they send- most likely those numbers to come up - that's how 'energising' work

normally its easy to get at least 4 of 6 this way, thats what i think will happen

can anyone send the link to the show? tx

The balls in display at all times? Or the backs of what we perceived/ were told to be the balls in display at all times?

At first I thought that they had replaced the balls with a still picture of them and then tamper with them but the camera is way too jerky.

He had a large T shaped platform with a set of balls on the top. The platform was clear perspex it looked like.

Just after the results were announced he turned it round all in clear view, to reveal the numbers, and the numbers matched.

I'm scratching my head here... Even though I assume it's some really smart technique where he changed the numbers on his balls just after they are announced, it looked really clean, and I have no idea how!

i think i know how he did it...imagine 49 balls each with a camera facing them from the back and merge those images as one so when a ball is drawn all he has to do is walk upto say ball 35 turn it and because its the only number showing it wont be seen as an overlay.

I can see what you mean but it's not his style. He doesn't use camera tricks.

Right there was an inkjet sprayer placed behind the balls and they were printed on as they were being called. which is how they put a date stamp on eggs.

This is a smart idea, without giving too much away, he used a similar trick in his stage show, with a ten pound note.

The stand looked legit, but I'd never put anything past Derren!

I doubt camera trick, but something like this could be it.

"But Derren Brown is a well known gangster in the neighbouring european nations of Latvia and Andorra where he is known as the Psycho one. Thus his links with the Yakuza and the Azerbaijani mob had prevented the British authorities from getting hold of the source of his wealth. His hair is also made of Unicorn skin, thus the brownish luster that it aludes to."

Wikipedia strikes again

Thanks for the video, hopefully we'll get a cleaner version soon, but good to see it again. I could see that the numbers on the balls are stickers, and I didn't see any way it could be the printed on method, but maybe...

Maybe Harry Potter put on his invisibility cloak, and snuck behind the balls and stuck them on at the last moment!

after seeing the clip who is to say he didnt get an asistant to put the balls as they was called.. oldest trick in the book all eyes on the magicican and they forget about the assistants and mirror tricks are in play here i think.

Ooh, an interesting theory in the comments section on YouTube

"the left side of the screen is held still so someone can be replacing the balls then when they are ready they can unfreeze that section of screen with the new set of balls for derren to magically reveal!!! "

This is an example of that method.



I'd be a little disappointed if that is the method, Brown doesn't normally go for camera tricks, at least, so he claims...
