Lottery Game In GTA V


gta_fan28

Recommended Posts

In GTA SA there's lot of gambling games u can play like card games, horse betting, slot machine and others. Also in RDR there's poker game, black jack, liars dice and 5 finger fillet.

Why not include a lottery game in GTA V? I know this sound stupid but it adds realism for the game u can be an instant millionaire. But ofcourse the chances of winning is hard like in real life. Spend ur winning on cars, safehouse or house,weapons and gangs. Share ur thoughts and idea..

That actually wouldn't be too bad. Problem would be handling people who just stand there buying/using the tickets trying to exploit the system. If you could only buy a certain amount of tickets in a given time period I'd be fine with it.

The_Mario_Man I know ur point, let say u can bought a ticket every sunday. Other NPC also win not just the player.

Yeah, but you get people that buy like 50 tickets in a week. the choice should be yours, save yp to buy guns and live or spend all your money on lottery tickets and die all the time, they should let you get in debt as well.

Bring me some poker and blackjack! I'm a big fan of those.

 

I wouldnt mind if they just copied-and-paste it from Red Dead Redemption.

never played Chinatown Wars, but it looks great for a hand-heald game, it would look even better if it would be like Vice City Stories or Liberty City Stories.

 

And for the lottery game .... not a bad idea, but it wouldn't work, better to play poker or blackjack

I don't see why it wouldn't. It's a simple chance for someone to make some quick cash without spending time playing card games and whatnot. I honestly never liked any of the casino/gambling mini-games, (nor am I good at any of them) so I'd be fine with a simple lottery ticket.

 

Which brings up a little question of realism vs convenience. Would the award be automatically added to your cash once you get a winning ticket, or would you have to take it somewhere to cash it in?

Why stop at the Lottery? They could include Bingo as well tounge.gif

 

In all seriousness though, the Lottery seems like a pretty pointless idea, we've already had scratchcards in CTW, why not just stick with them?

That's a very intriguing idea there, i must say...

 

re: gambling, man there has got to be at least one badass casino in the next game. just one would take care of an assorment of games (poker, blackjack, roulette, slots, sports betting, etc.)

 

As for the lottery, I can't see it being a good idea. I mean, if you won (millions upon millions of dollars) it would render many of the money-making features (assuming there will be some) useless. it'd kinda make the game too easy if you know what i mean. they might as well add the chance to get struck by lightning as well.

I don't think so. Even once you do earn enough money in GTA (IV at least), there's really nothing to spend it on.

 

Plus the chances would be incredibly slim, much like the real lottery.

 

 

 

 

 

Getting randomly hit by lightning would be funny as hell to see, though...

Why not just make it a relatively small jackpot? In real life you have the big main lottery and you have the little ones as well. They could just put in a small lottery where the jackpot is 10K or something.

yeah but the lack of things to spend money on in IV has been a big complaint among the gta community, thus I think R* would be crazy not to bring back various market commodities (e.g. more clothes, real estate, car customization, etc.) present in previous gta games. So, I think it's certain that we'll see it.

 

even if the chances are super duper slim, only small percentage of people who purchase the game would experience winning the lottery. I just can't see a game developer implementing a feature in to a game that not everyone can enjoy/experience simply based on chance.

 

i echo GTA360, just make stratch cards available and something like a $5 card could win you up to $20,000, for example.

Playing the lottery sounds fun, especially if you could watch the numbers being called on TV.

I hope in GTA V money are essential needs just like in real life. Also add some feature where u can spend ur money like buying mansion, expensive cars, yatch, expensive clothes, shoes and jewelry.

I like this idea, I don't see how it couldn't work. It's simple.

 

Million dollar jackpot, chances incredibly slim of winning, but, if your character is pretty poor the jackpot could tempt you to spend what you have on a few tickets.

 

Obviously there'd have to be a limit to tickets bought, maybe if you had to pick the numbers, so it wouldn't get spammed as much (at least not by people who can't sit on the game all day long)

Some of u might think this is useless. But if R* make the money more essentials in GTAV like in SIMS series were u need to eat and work something like that. This feature will not be pointless anymore.

Like this idea. The longer the money is up for grabs the more money there is for the taking. It would also be cool that after you get the lottery money FIB agents escort you to your nearest house but meanwhile hitman are after you. The car ride can be skipped though.

ok idea ,i guess if we didnt want to enter the lottery we wouldnt have to . but i reckon they should just have all the gambling options from San Andreas , then add Texas hold em poker , and cage fighting with the option of betting ,

 

i also like the idea of being able to get into debt , maybe have a dodgy loan shark or something where you could go to to get money from for your gambling habit haha , like to buy more and more lotto tickets

Decent idea, but the novelty would wear off QUICKLY. This isn't like Poker or Blackjack, which are games you can actually have fun with, in lottery you just buy tickets and find out what numbers were drawn, nothing but luck. Would be cool at first, but once you've won once or twice, it would be quite pointless to go back...

It's not pointless if the money in GTAV is very important like in SIMS games. My idea is if u win in a lottery game of 1million dollar, u can spend it by buying a expensive cars, Speedboat, Yatch, More weapons and costumization, costumize ur cars, buying properties or safehouses, decorate ur safehouse like Scarface game, Hiring more henchmen other stuff that u can do with ur money something like that.

In GTA SA you could get into debt, the outcome is funny lol people start attacking you. You can see the outcome in

video.

 

And I think they had something like this in Chinatown Wars, you could win like a house or something.

Bodyguard protection is also another great idea.
