Earning money in San Andreas quickly

Recommended Posts

OK I need to raise about $9000 very quickly in order to buy this dumb airstrip place.

 

How can I get money fast?!

Go to Los Santos and kill drug dealers. They're the guys who stand around with their arms cross. A quick shot to the head will net you $2000 for each one you find.

 

Otherwise, do some firetruck missions, or import/export at the docks in San Fierro

Yeah, that's a very easy way to get a lot of money. Just stand on Grove Street, walk up behind them and shoot. If you get a wanted level, you just have to save at Carl's house and it will go away.

The problem with that idea is that drug dealers rarely show up until after you reach SF, and by that time, odds are you already have a lot of money.

 

The quickest way to make money early in the game is to do the burglary mission.

 

The most fun way to make money early in the game is to get the NRG-500 (from the parking gargage just north of the stadium) and do a lot of double and triple insane jumps. biggrin.gif (Double's net you about $250 and triples net around $500.)

 

 

Edit: I stated "the funniest way" when I really meant "the most fun way."

Drug dealers are all over the place after the Doberman mission. Maybe it cuts down once you get kicked out of Los Santos but I really can't walk a block right now without seeing one.

in Los Santos, where do you find ramps to do jumps with?

There are ramps and inclines virtually all over the place! (R* seemed to put a lot more effort in this aspect of the game on this series as opposed to GTAIII and GTA:VC.)

 

I guess your best bet would be to visit SAM and choose among the various unique jumps around the town since it's on these you can more easily perform triple turns and such.

thats not the easiest/fastest way to make money, its by betting on horses in los santos, bet on the last horse with 11/1 or 12/1 and there is 20% chance u win, bet all your money, u lose, u load,u win, u save. by doing this i got 3 million dollars in just 2 wins, and i had a couple of thousands when i started..

I didn't say it was the easiest or the fastest. I said it was the most fun way. tounge.gifbiggrin.gif

 

But yeah, you are right. The burglary mission, as I originally suggested, will only net you about $40K max, and that's only if you do everything perfectly. The ITB is by far the quickest way to build up one's cash reserves.

here's what you do:

 

1) Go to the ITB (Inside Track Betting).

 

2) Do a little math and find your wager amount and bet it on the bottom most horse (usually 11/1 or 12/1 odds)

 

The horse has a 20% chance of winning just as the rest of the horses, but a much higher payout. You can usually win at least 2 races in 10-12 races total. If you bet 10% of your total purse prior to gambling, then you'll probably never run out of money. I will give you an example, which is similar to how I do it every time.

 

Gather up about $500 and head to the ITB.

 

Total Money = $500.

Gambling Allotment = $500*10% = $50.

 

Bet $50 on 11/1 horse and loose.

Bet $50 on 12/1 horse and loose.

Bet $50 on 12/1 horse and win $600.

 

Now I won.. yes, I lost $100 first, but now I'm sitting at an even $1000. ($500-$50-$50+$600=$1000)

Now $1000 > $500, so it's time to pick a new gambling allotment and keep going.

 

Total Money = $1000.

Gambling Allotment = $1000*10% = $100.

 

Bet $100 on 11/1 horse and loose.

Bet $100 on 11/1 horse and loose.

Bet $100 on 12/1 horse and loose.

Bet $100 on 12/1 horse and loose.

Bet $100 on 11/1 horse and win.

 

Now that was a pain, but I finally won another. I lost $400 and made $1100, that's a $700 profit. Now I have $1700 and a $170 allotment. However, myself, I'm superstitious kinda... I'd rather do a nice even $150 than a $170.

 

Bet $150 on 12/1 horse and loose.

Bet $150 on 11/1 horse and loose.

Bet $150 on 12/1 horse and win.

 

So I lost another $300 and won $1800.... that's another $1500 into the bank of $1700. Now I'm at $3200 in just 11 races...

 

As is, I started my new PC game with $350 before I went to ITB and turned it into some $7 mil.

 

EDIT:

The above method is a walk-thru guide for those that don't want to "cheat the game" by loading everytime they loose bank. However, if you'd rather purchase the house right dow the street from the ITB (near the park), you could save, go bet the farm and save if you win, load if you loose. This will, of course, have a much higher yeild but can be more time consuming (short term).

 

I got this from

here. You can also go there for more tips.

I dont know if you can yet but you can gamble. I have made over $150,000,000 from gambling. But your skill needs to be high enough to play at the $1,000,000 tables.

-OFFICIAL MONEY MAKERS GUIDE-

 

Hello! This guide is meant to help you players make some green in SA.(W/O Cheats) Iv decided to make this guide to help new players start off with a ton of cash. I have beat the game and I have about 97 million dollars, without cheating! Read the following guide if you seek to go from rags to riches!

 

Index

(to skip to a section, copy the numbers in the box and hit ctrl+f, then paste the number in.

 

Just starting off [123]

Now that you have some cash [456]

Big Money [789]

 

 

 

JUST STARTING OFF:123

 

The old strip club trick-

Go to the Pig Pen and CAREFULLY stant infront of one of the dancers. If you go to near them, security will kill you. The men throw 20 dollar bills every 10 seconds. When they throw them, if you are in the right spot, you will pick up the money. This is good for picking up some starter cash.

 

Killing the pool man-

Go inside the bar right by CJ's house. Kill everyone in the bar EXECPT the pool man. Pick up everyones cash. then go up to the pool man and press TRIANGLE. Place ALL of your cash as a wager. If you win, GREAT! If you lose, no big deal. As soon as the game ends, hit him with the pool cue, he will fight back. Lure him close to the door in the open space so money dosent fall into walls. When he dies, he drop your money plus some! Repeat as many times as desired.

 

Insane Jump-

Steal a bikeor motorcycle, then go to the big circular building in Downtwon with the parachute at the top. Ride your vehicle into the yellow triangle. You can go to the top on your vehicle! Then, Drive off! In the air, do alot of flips, you wont get hurt when you land if you are still on the vehicle. Do lots of flips and viola! Instant cash.

 

Side missions-

 

If you steal a law enforcment vehicle, AmbuLANCE, taxi, firetruck, ect. press L3 and start a side mission. Their all fairly easy and rack up tons of cash!

 

 

 

Now that you have some money: [456]

 

Ben Affleck-

Get a hooker and take her into an alley. Then kill her, repeat as many times as needed.

 

Crash for cash!-

 

Every time you crash you get a small cash bonous.

 

 

 

 

Big money!- [789]

 

Bets-

Save the game, then make large bets. If you lose, load game and try again!

 

With the help of this guide you can get serious money! But these are just guidelines!

 

 

I dont drink, i dont smoke, at least i can f*cking think.

Im Straight Edge

No. DON'T. Codes can screw up your game. I would suggest killing drug dealers in Los Santos, like the other guy said.

No, they don't.

 

Segosa beat the entire game and he used cheat codes. I'd show you the topic, but it has probably been purged.

You did baaaad. Good bye, and thanks for the spam!
