Chump change

How in the world are coinstar coin changing machines profitable? Do they give rolls of coins to people?  They're huge and they must pay for space in stores like Redbox did, and they died in Canada.  How long does it take for thelat investment in the machine and space in Safeway or whatever take before it turns a profit?  I can't believe it's profitable no matter how often I pass by.

The Coinstar machines take quite a big cut - 15% or more ? Maybe that explains it.
