Get ready to celebrate World Magic Day 2019

If you’ve ever tried (and failed) to master a card trick, or bend a spoon without using your hands, you can probably appreciate the skill, patience and dedication required of a professional magician. So it seems a shame that Halloween tends to hog the spotlight on October 31st, when it also happens to be a day for celebrating magicians and magic as a performing art.

Founded by the Society of American Magicians, World Magic Day began in 1938. It took over what had been known as ‘Houdini Day’ since the famous magician Harry Houdini passed away on October 31st in 1926. To mark the occasion, charitable Society members set up magic shows in hospitals, schools and nursing homes, to bring magic to the lives of those not usually fortunate enough to witness such entertainment.

The tradition for free shows continues to this day. However, you’ll find plenty of ways other than attending a magic show to celebrate World Magic Day 2019. In fact, to promote their range of magic-themed slots like The Great Reveal, the team from online casino have come up with several. From enjoying a Houdini-inspired film night to dressing up like famous illusionist, check them out below.
