Value for Money

Yesterday evening around 6:30 PM, I decided to walk over to a nearby pizza place and play the Lord of the Rings pinball machine they have there. Four hours later, I left because they were closing, and was obliged to leave behind one credit on the machine. Total expenditure for the four hours: $1.50. And I hadn't put any money in the machine since 8:30. I simply kept winning games. Not bad.

This isn't the first time that I've forfeited credits on a pinball machine because the venue was closing. It's mildly annoying, but I can't say that I haven't gotten my money's worth. I was really "on" last night, and the machine was feeling pretty generous, too, giving me four post-game match free games as well.
