How u make money?


Vithy

Recommended Posts

As the title says, im asking a question that might sound stupid.

But how do you make money?

I've seen some savegames of people that have completed all story missions (just like me) but up to 10 times more money!

I have only the storyline completed, no other jobs.

You can earn A LOT of money via rampages, long-running police chases, killing sprees and the like.

Sorry, that was a bit vague.

 

I mean when you're being chased by the police for a while, racking up wanted stars by blowing daft amounts of vehicles up. and slaying whatever crosses your path. It does earn you a lot of money, presuming you keep at it for a while.

 

That reminds me; Hunter missions (Blue Thunder or something? I forget). If you get reasonably far with these the money gets really high.

I was about $500.000 when i finshed all the missions. Then I went to Four Dragons Casino and I gambled there and now I have about $10.000.000. Don't play BlackJack or other stupid games. Play the game that is near pocker (i don't remember the name). Put about 90% of your money on 1st to 12 or 2nd to 12 (etc) and then put about 10% on Black/Red (etc).

Use Four Dragons Casino, after you win some money, SAVE THE GAME! If you lost money, LOAD GAME!

If you wil gamble in other casino and if you will lost much money until your money hud from the top right became red, a guy wil call you and tell you to give him his money, and if you don't, the MAFIA will come after you! devil.gif

 

I hope you understand. smile.gif

I usually play BlackJack. Got about 2 mil with it. What was weird though, was that some time later after the mission 'High noon' (Stopped with the missions for a while to do some gambling) i failed some times and suddenly my money was reduced to 50000 or something. confused.gif

The thing I dont understand is... what the heck do you do with over 100,000 dollars??? theres nothing to spend it on after you buy all the houses, they should have included more things to buy with your money.

Hi,

 

Just a quick tip on making money in S.A. If you go to the horse betting shop near your original neighberhood, you can rack up hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars in about two or three real hours.

 

Just use the betting machine near the door, and bet on the 12 to 1 or 14 to one horses. They will win, even of its only after 5 or 6 tries. once you win you will have all the money you could ever need. I think im currently sitting on about 150 MILLION dollars. cool.gif

 

This will also be able to give you all the money you need for the rest of the game from very early on. I will go back and check again to see if there is a specific patern and how to manipulate it

 

Later biggrin.gif

The Problem is: I HAVENT bought all houses and the money wont be enough ^^

(hey deutsche hier rolleyes.gif )

Take the advice in Asswipe`s( blink.gif ) post. Buy the safe house in the Glen Park neighborhood, it`s the closest one to that betting shop. That way if you lose, just reload & keep going back `till you win. cool.gif

Hi,

 

Thank`s for the respect Grand Theft Granpa. Is the funny face for the name ? I have looked up the exact details for this money making scheme. I think the easiest way to describe how to find the shop is by using Good old Standard directions. After all, it is a town.

 

So here goes. When you come out of cj`s house, take the road that lies to the west. NOT the ally or the back entrance past sweets house. Now head down this road and take the first right, keep going and take the third left. Go straight down this road, it will turn off to the right, after 3 streets have passed on your right hand side. Once you have turned to the right, take the second left. Keep going down hill and take the second right. Once you have taken the right turn, at the top of the road, take a left. once you have turned left, keep going past the first street on the left. Now once you have passed the street on your left, slow down and look on your left hand side. After about three shops you will see a yellow flashing upside down triangle. Go in to this shop, it is called " Inside Track Betting ". Now use the machine next to the door that you just came in. As i wrote in my previous reply, it may take several tries to win some dough. But like Grand Theft Granpa said, SAVE Then try. If you fail, LOAD then try. tounge2.gif

 

You may want to rob some people before you go here, this will ensure that you can bet more form the start and so build up your money at a faster rate.

 

Happy Hunting rahkstar2.gif

Basically under the Mulholland Intersection (that big intersection north of Los Santos).

My brother thinks it's hilarious to just beat up hookers for money, which takes hours, if not days to afford most things.

 

I just do the hunter mission up to level 200 for an almost uncountable amount of millions.

@Tuff Luv Capo-I agree with the vigilante method by using the incomparable Hunter. But that may be too far down the road yet to be of any value to -=zephyr=-. colgate.gif

 

@Asswipe-Yes, the funny face was my reaction to your screen name. I was startled to scroll down & see that! wink.gif

Instead you can save at Catalina's cabin, take her car and drive for about 10 sec to the Inside Track Betting, bet all your money on a 12/1 horse andget some serious money. I made $44,000,000 at one bet !

THe two best ways or the Horse Races and "Brown Thunder." Other than that, if you want quick money kill some dealers in LS. (they drop $2000 if i'm right) smile.gif

I agree the Hunter/Vigilante is your best "Action" (you actually have control of a vehical, you shoot etc..) option to EARN Money. (And my personal favorite.) U can easily get to level 20 or greater in like a 1/2 hr 45 min...

OTB is the best EASY-as-Pie option, u bet, if u win good, if not depending on how much you have left over, you can bet again or re-load...

 

Early in the game I would go on "Get the Dealer" Rampages... Ill grab an NRG from the Parking Garage north of the LS Stadium, theres Mini gun ammo there, but I would just use the handgun since the dealers drop those anyway, and it would progress my gun rating for the handgun.. they drop around $1200-$2000 in one go, make a few trips around some of the LS hoods, and you will have pleanty of money for little things or small priced properties early in the game....

alien.gif ALWAYS max bet on "Biffen's Bridge" when he appears in the 12/1 slot odds in the ITB! Statistically, you can rack up A LOT___TONS of $$$$, betting on him. This is why he RARELY appears. Its kind of an in game cheat. He doesn't always win, but is statistically better than most Horseys on the ps2! (i have reached $208 million at the ITB alone! Not even past Badlands yet) My largest win was $90Million on "Biffen's Bridge" I went all out on the bet, because he is THAT big a winner~! Good horsey! Now I don't have to kill you. devil.gif MY BIGGEST REGRET---Rx didn't put NEARLY enough stuff in the game to actually spend that kind of money!! cryani.gif

I don't know if somebody metioned this but if your gambling and you have all the Horseshoes collected try this.

 

I had max money. Thats $999, 999, 999. One more digit gets added on the end and it won't get higher than that amount of mo.

 

Bet $9.999.999 on 12/1 in the betting shop and if you win ( and its very common ) you should get around $120, 000, 000. Save and repeat. And you should never ever worry about cash again.

 

Plus, for some reason ( please correct me if i'm wrong ) your criminal rating goes up when you win a high bet, or the maximum amount of money you can win in a bet/gamble

 

I hope this helped....

most people earn big bucks by saving their game, going to a horse racing shop, then if they loose they redo their save game, if they win, well they win!

I'm so damn incredibly I'm going to hack all your mail accounts by asking you kindly for your password after I've PM spammed you and posted a few crappy topics about my site for collecting them. -Luke

one thing you can also do on "inside track betting" that is less of a cheat than the bet it all /save/load techniquie.

 

bet 5% or so of your total cash on the highest odds horse til he wins, then switch to the next one down (green horse til he wins, then purple) just keep betting back and forth between these 2 5% at a time and you will quickly pile up the cash.

 

get the taxi missions and that stupid currior mission out of the way to get the store asset early as well.

 

I have a save with 100 tags and 74 million on the "tagging up Turf" mission...thats like the 3rd mission in the game.

The obvious question to ask is, have you got all the horseshoes? I noticed this, and hopefully someone can back me up.

 

The best time to gamble is when you have made some progress and completed some missione. I always do this before I save at the end of a GTA session:) and I usally win.

 

Like you know when CJ is on a winning streak of luck? It happens best when you've done something like missions. Sort of like a reward or like you know when you get arrested or die and you come out of the station/hospital and all the vehicles are crap like a sort of punishment.

 

Maybe it's coincidence but I think Its deliberate.

Well the best thing that's worked for me lately is wacking the crack dealers in Los Santos. There are two very easily found types. One is white, wears a grey sweatshirt w/ hood; the other is black, wears black sleeve-less tshirt and dark jeans.

They are the only people who spend most their time standing in the middle of the sidewalk as opposed to walking, very easily spotted !

 

Pimp missions can earn a lot of cash in the long run, 300 bucks per run, multiplied each time by the number of succesful 'deliveries' in a row.

 

Taxi missions can earn you cash if you are able to drive a lot of passengers in a row and getting as many tips as possible.

 

Throughout the game, you obtain certain "points" on the map that generate cash, quite handy.

 

In San Fierro there's some package delivery thing on a harley, which is quite useful for some fast cash. Its about 2 km due west from the garage/savepoint in san fierro (the one between the construction site and train station).

 

Passed a certain mission, dont ask which tounge.gif, in San Fierro, you can work for a hotel downtown (east of san fierro, near a pizzeria) as a car park valet, and get to drive random cars down to the hotel basement and get tipped on the final position of the car in the actual parking space. Great fun tounge.gif

 

You could do the police missions, but unless you know where the bribes are, good luck lasting a long, cashful time tounge.gif

 

And finally the truck missions (north west of Los Santos's most western point) can get you quite some cash. If you get the police pursuit one, force the cop cars into walls, poles and such tounge.gif tends to slow them down a bit)

Vigilante Missions in the Hunter attack helicopter. Make millions. And never have anything to spend it on . . . .
