Can You Spare Some Change?

So, some time ago, I got myself an automatic coin sorter/roller from Dave and Buster's using my hard-earned prize tickets. It basically looks like this here. Anyway, it's been about two years since I've been rolling up my spare change. Here's what my change box looked like this morning.

Now, the change box is empty. I took it to the bank and made my deposit. I was surprised to learn that it was for a whopping $483.50. If there wasn't a bar across the street with a Ms. Pacman and the Addam's Family pinball machine, I would have easily surpassed the $500 mark. It feels like free money, but I know that's pure psychological nonsense. Anyway, I thought I'd share.
