Overview

Actually, she never left. Since the publication of the best-selling The Frugal Gambler in 1998, Jean Scott has been busily plying her low-roller trade in casinos throughout America and sharing her exploits with the world via appearances on "Dateline," "48 Hours," and the Travel Channel. The first Frugal took the gambling world by storm by showing how "small" players can get in on the bonanza of casino giveaways, including free rooms, free food, and free shows. Now Queen Jean is back with a veritable truckload of new frugal advice for recreational gamblers who want to stretch their money and fun in casinos. More Frugal Gambling is a 400-plus-page powerhouse packed with new and improved techniques for navigating the fast-growing and constantly changing casino scene. Jean hits all the hotspots of low-level advantage play, in-cluding the ins and outs of slot clubs, cashback, bounceback, and comps; finding and beating promotions and tournaments; and using coupons, casino mail offers, and slot hosts to get the freebies that most assume are beyond their reach. Special sections from Jean's daughter, Angela, assure that beginners and casual players aren't left out. More Frugal Gambling is just that: more of what made the "Gambling Grandma" the favorite of hundreds of thousands of satisfied frugal aficionados. Long live the Queen!

    Jean Scott Knows Her Stuff

    Jean Scott is the Queen of the Comps and she is also a devastatingly great advantage player at video poker. I've known her a long time and I can tell you she is everything her publicity agent says she is.
