This is a question Unemployed

I was Mordred writes, "I've been out of work for a while now... however, every cloud must have a silver lining. Tell us your stories of the upside to unemployment."

You can tell us about the unexpected downsides too if you want.

Getting there at uni....
The monopoly game on the quiz machines nowadays is harder to win at, land on old kent road and you'll almost always end up with 50p at the end. The Dr Who game, however, has a VERY easy first round (especially for geeks, about half the question topics are science/technology based), which you can collect 1 after (for a 50p stake), so working there for a while can get a decent amount of cash, and pay for pints faster than you drink them. Playing with half of next year's LMH (Oxford) University Challenge team (of which I am a member, we go to the interviews to see if we will be on the telly in a month or so) helps too of course.
For the machines without Dr Who, Hex appeal is good if you are lucky with the rounds, barring that tetris is probably best, but you're not that likely to more than break even on either of those.

Good luck with the Uni Challenge
I live just outside Oxford so if I see a bunch of students congregating round a Dr Who machine I'll know who it is!
