The Frugal Gambler


Jean Scott is the country's most renowned low roller. She stays at hotel-casinos up to 120 nights a year and never has to pay for a room or meal. She gets shows, manicures, massages, clothes, jewelry, even gifts for her grandchildren--all free. How does she do it? She works the comp and slot club systems. She participates in casino promotions and drawings. She uses coupons. She's an expert at video poker. In short, she plays all the right games. In these pages, Jean Scott discloses the secrets of her low-roller success. After reading The Frugal Gambler, you too can employ these money-saving and vacation-enhancing strategies in casinos throughout America.

Jean Scott started out life as the daughter of a minister, raised to believe that thriftiness was next to godliness. In 1983, after raising her family and retiring from teaching high-school English, Jean visited Las Vegas for the first time and thought she'd died and gone to bargain heaven. Her life-long propensity for frugality was fully stimulated by the ubiquitous bargains, coupons, and promotions of the town.

Not only that, but the love of games and the competitive spirit she'd developed in early childhood were challenged in the casino. By studying the available literature and practicing intensely, Jean learned how to gamble smart -- first at blackjack, then at video poker. By trial and error and an eagle eye for deals, she figured out how to use the rating and slot club systems so well that she began getting all of her meals and hotel rooms comped by the casinos, without being a high roller. One year she and her husband Brad stayed 191 days in casino-hotels without paying a single room charge or food bill.

Finally, after 15 years of on-the-job experience, during which she and Brad learned how to win more than they lost in a casino, she combined her love for teaching and writing by penning the best-seller book The Frugal Gambler. This practical non-technical book is the leading casino guide for thrifty low rollers, in which she stresses sensible and responsible and shows how to stretch out casino fun time no matter how small a person's bankroll might be. The Frugal Gambler catapulted to #2 on amazon.com's bestseller list after Jean and Brad's story was told on a recent episode of "Dateline."

Her passion is still education while she continues as an active player in casinos all over the country. She conducts video poker classes and is a popular speaker and writer on gaming subjects. She has a monthly column in Strictly Slots magazine and a weekly Internet column called Frugal Fridays on www.lasvegasadvisor.com.

Jean Scott's exploits have been featured in newspaper and magazines articles and on the radio, not only all over the U.S., but overseas as well. She has frequently appeared on TV: on local news shows, on the Learning, Travel, and Discovery Channels, and in a travel feature on British telly. Besides "Dateline," she was seen nationally on "Hard Copy," "Extra," and "To Tell the Truth". When she won a new Mercury Mystique in a casino drawing while being filmed for "48 Hours," Dan Rather dubbed her the "Queen of Comps."

Today, Jean Scott, who, in her words, is just an "ordinary grandmother," is the world’s most famous low-rolling gambler and her fans are legion.
