At first glance, Jean Scott appears to be what she is--your average 60-something retired English teacher from the Midwest. In her secret life, though, she's the most successful casino low roller in the country. Dubbed the "Queen of Comps" by CBS' "48 Hours," by using slot clubs, taking advantage of promotions and contests, gambling with coupons, and exploiting everything in the casino world that's even remotely vulnerable, Scott has developed a technique for getting everything she wants from the casinos from Las Vegas to Atlantic City. She has been featured on "Dateline," "Hard Copy," "To Tell the Truth," numerous Travel and Discovery channel documentaries, and "48 Hours."
Angela Sparks, the Frugal Princess, is Jean Scott's daughter. A chip off the frugal block, she is following in her mother's footsteps and becoming an expert low roller in her own right. She lives with her career Army Ranger husband Steve and two grade-school children near Ft. Benning, Georgia, until Uncle Sam decides to send them elsewhere. She keeps busy with volunteer work and substitute assignments in the school system.
