Going to the Blackjack Tables is way too easy. The wheel of fortune thingy or Roulette tables is a bit harder, and you might loose it all. Anyways, most of the $145 million my CJ has is thanks to going on Green Zero on the Roulette table and on that star on the Wheel of Fortune.

i thought the max was $99,999,999... at least that's how many number slots there are currently... so does it actually go up to $999,999,999?

Although it is fun to gamble, I am never able to win any money through gambling sad.gif . I guess easy money aint for me. I will just have to earn money the honest way by beating up people for it.

Having lots of money is usefull for your criminal rating also!

 

Now I have a question... Why is that I cannot gamble in some of the casinos tables? It keeps saying that I don't have enough gambling experience!!!

You have to start small and build up your gambling skills... just start at the roulette table and bet for a while on black or red or the groups of 1/3 of the numbers... then move to the smaller amount blackjack tables...

 

It doens't take very long to max out the gambling skill so you can play at the 1,000,000 blackjack tables...

They make ITB almost too easy to make money from...

 

Here's what you do...

 

Take total amount of money ($start_fund) and figure out 7.5% of it.

 

The easiest way to find 7.5% is to take 10% and divide it by two. Then multiply what you have by .075; or divide what your answer is by two again and then add that answer to the first answer.

 

Example: $start_fund = $10,000.

 

ALWAYS bet on the 11/1 or 12/1 shot horse. Reason being is laws of probability support the fact that the more you play on the same horse and loose, the more likely it is of winning in the next race. If you bet on the 8/1 horse, you only have 8 shots at winning before you actually loose money even if you win. However, by doing the 11/1 or 12/1 horse, you have over ten races to win at least one.. and you'll still end up ahead.

 

(Continuing Example now)

$start_fund = $10,000.

$percent = $750.

 

(10% of $10,000 is $1,000. Multiply that by .075 or divide it by two and add w/ that answer)

 

10% of $10,000 is $1,000.

50% of $1,000 is 5% of $10,000 which is $500.

Add 10% and 5% together = $750.

 

You can do just 10% instead of 7.5%, but the 7.5% allows you to loose more than 12 races before you loose all your money.

 

In the example, if I were to bet on an 11/1 horse, and win, I would be rewarded with $8,250. If it were 12/1 horse and I won, I would be rewarded with $9,000. So my total amount would be $17,500 - $18,250.. depending on if it were 11/1 or 12/1.

 

Now we have to readjust $percent because $start_fund is now different...

$start_fund = $18,250

$percent = $1,368.75 (round off to $1,365)

 

Say you loose 7 races in a row and then win a race w/ a 12/1 horse...

You first lost $9,555 in the first 7 races, but you win $16,380... so now your $start_fund would be $25,075.

 

As you can see, you win back the money you lost, and then some. However, if we replace the horse being bet on with the middle horse and assume it's a 6/1 horse... You loose 7 races before winning one... you would loose $9,555 and then win only $8,190... so you actually end up loosing money. By choosing the 11/1 or 12/1, you increase the odds of winning back what you lost (providing you bet same thing every race) as well as setup for the highest possible payout. Finally, if you don't stick with betting on one and only one horse, you cannot hold nor apply the laws of probability and may loose even MORE money.

 

In short, if you want to loose money, bet all you can on the 2/1 or 3/1 horse... if you want to make money, bet a fraction of your total earnings on the 11/1 or 12/1 horse...

 

Also, to answer the sub-question addressed in the quoted post... Max bet at ITB is $9,999,995. When you start, it looks like the highest you can get is $99,999,999... However, once you hit one hundred million, you get an extra digit. However, you do max/cap out at $1 short of one billion. That's $999,999,999.... When you're this rich, max bet at ITB is about 1% of your total money in possession.

 

My max bet I've ever bet was $9,999,995 and it was on a 12/1 horse that won... which pays off $119,999,940. A few times doing this, I could not build my money any more cause it cuts off at $999,999,999 max. BTW, an 11/1 horse will pay $109,999,945 on a max bet if it wins.

0k kremit sorry to crash your dream man , but duno if in san andreas but in reality a horse with a 2/1 = a horse with a 50%-50% chance to win and a race and a horse with 12/1 =a horse with less the 5% chance to win the race it pays better because the horse hass less chances to win , equal you take the challenge you get better payd thats why it pays more i really never bet in ITB butt if it goeas anything like reality the 12/1,11/1 horses should win a race out of 25 with luck

it's a game... not reality... each horse has a 1 in 5 chance of winning... it is not dependant, relative nor proportional to the odds placed on the horse... guess if I mentioned that, my method would sound a little more concrete...

 

Incidentally, it's this very reason that you've pointed out that makes me a millionare in GTA:SA and a broke arse looser at the tracks IRL...

Does anyone know if The Four Dragons Casino and Caligula's Palace are the only Casinos that you can gamble in, or can you go into The Camel's Toe, for example, and play blackjack too?

Caligula's and The Four Dragons are the only accessible casinos in the game. The other casinos you can buy the safe houses for, but none have an accessible casino. Sorry

I always save next to the betting shop in montgomerey and bet $10000000 and win around 120 million. If I lose, I just load. I have 262 million and am planning on getting max money so my criminal ranking will go up.

@ bdub10:

There's also Casino Floor, but it's much smaller than the Four Dragons or Caligula's.

 

On topic:

1.000.000$ roulette is my favourite. Just switching bets between red and black or picking 6-8 numbers in a row.

it actually works.

 

i started with total cash of $44,685

and always betted 7.5% of my total cash when i win.

now, i have over $100,000,000

 

somebody mentioned Little Bishop (horse's name) and i took a chance and betted 20% of my total cash (instead of 7.5%) and won! got over $15m... it was very exciting!!

I am a non-cheater on San Andreas because if you save with cheats it messes the game up. Since I don't use the Health, Armor and Money cheat, I can only make money by exporting cars, doing missions, all that. But it's always such a goddamn hassle. I want to know if any of you out there know how to make tons of money fast without having to spend hours driving across San Andreas to do it.

Either kill Drug dealers, or bet a lot of money in the horse races, and pick the bottom horse, the bottom horse always wins.

 

And so am I, I never cheat (unless it's the Chao's mode, but I don't save) in San Andreas.

Firstly, entering cheats will only affect your criminal rating (although I do not advise the use of cheats). To get quick cash, go to the casinos in Las Venturas or go to any of the betting shops located throughout San Andreas.

Go to a savehouse close to a horse betting shop. Then save the game. Go bet all your money with the worst odds and best payout. Then if you lose, just load the game and do it again. Keep doing it until you win.

Well the best advice I can give you is to find a fast police car and do the vigilante missions.It'll give you more armor and will give you good money as you progress through each level,which there is no limit.In addition,you'll get game progress.But since you don't cheat,you have limited options.But any R3 mission (as long as you hurry,as they give you little time)will give you good money.Also,rack up on guns and ammo and shoot dope dealers,they carry as much as 2000 bucks.Just make sure you kill them while there are no cops arond and aim for the head,if you shoot them anywhere else,they'll shoot at you.Or just get a knife and do the stealth kill,which will help you aviod wanted levels and gang members.Hope this helps.Although I cheat a lot,I never save with the riot and other bad cheats.In fact,I don't use them.
