Hi there, I was recently having a discussion with people and they were adamant they would always pay for a game with negative EV. The example was "Would you pay 1p for £200 free play of a 97% RTP slot machine with 35x wagering?" So you pay 1p and get given £200 risk free to play on a slot machine with a 97% return to player (for every £1 you stake you expect to get 97p back with an infinite amount of spins). After you wager 35x the £200 = £7000 through the machine you get to keep anything that's left (if you haven't already bust out.) The deal with this risk free £200 is that even if you blow the lot you're only down the 1p you paid to play the game. Clearly the £200 has an EV of nothing by the time you've finished wagering, but this doesn't mean sometimes you won't get lucky and win something. My question is should you ever pay for this game? And if so, how much should you pay? If you'll pay 1p should you pay 2? 3? How about £100? How do you value something with negative EV if it is given to you for free? Thanks!
