To celebrate the Grand Opening of his new casino, k-man offered the first 1000 patrons the opportunity to win some pocket change by playing a game that carried the catchy phrase Flip while you're a-Head. Each patron paid $100 to flip a coin multiple times, winning $100 for every H (heads) that appeared, and stopping (without penalty) at the first appearnace of a T (tails.)

What was k-man's expected cost for this gesture of good will?
