to bet with the credit his gambling skill created, then he can't bet anymore.
Thanks to spaceeinstein for telling me that "C.J. will be hunted down if he is
$500 or more in debt." "The guys that attack CJ carry" approximately "$10,000
each, so you could just kill them to pay off your debt. The more deeply C.J. is
in debt, the tougher the attackers will be."
If C.J. goes $500 or more in debt and goes outside, he gets a call from the
owner: "Just a friendly reminder that you owe me money. Don't be a stranger."
If C.J. doesn't come up with the money in a few minutes, the owner calls again:
"Carl Johnson. Little bird told me you're in town. You should have listened to
me and paid your debts" or such. If he's in the neighborhood of the casino, the
gangsters of a dark gray Vincent sedan shoot at C.J. with Micro-SMGs and AK-47s.
To pay it off, C.J. has to make enough money (doing the Vigilante mission with
the Hunter, etc.) to get back up to a green, positive number for his cash.
The gimmick of getting C.J. out of debt by having him do a Unique Jump he
doesn't have credit for yet doesn't work for PC.
This seems to be a bit incomplete. CJ must be in LV or the Mafia guys won't come after him. Also, CJ cannot have a (high? > 2 stars IIRC) wanted level. It's pretty difficult to get them to appear if LV is still restricted, but it is possible near that Jetmax dock with an armor.
The UFO Curse was added to the Chain Game saves to make it easy to trigger the Debt script. It shouldn't be hard to find the curse if you look through the available save documentation. When the curse is triggered CJ usually goes massively into debt and chain game players then have the challenge of paying off the debt or struggling to get enough food and being unable to use pay'n'sprays. To keep the game from bogging down completely it's best to avoid the curse until after Verdant Meadows and the LV properties have been purchased.
If CJ owes more than he can borrow (because of mods or trainers) then be sure to stay away from the Wheel O' Fortune game or CJ's wallet goes totally nuts (kind of fun to watch but please don't save that way for the Chain Game).
