To get money easily simply go to a horse betting place and put all your money on the horse with the worse odds, if they win you'll get around 10-12 times your money back, if they lose simply re-load your game and try again. I got 7mil from doing this twice.

Easy Money 5

At the betting shop in Los Santos's Red country access the betting machine near the wall and choose the horse with the worst every dollar you've got and start the race, instead of watching it with hope for a victory tap the 'X' button as fast as you can. you SHOULD win, again repeat this process adding more and more money to the bet. Finally you will be rolling in it, it DOES work as soon as i could reach the betting shop, i found myself with 1.9 million dollars before i had even started the missions.

Want to pick up a hooker?

Well, here's some hints; the hookers are attracted to "pimping" cars, therefore if you\'re in a car that has hydraulics and you\'re using them infront of a hooker, she'll say something like "You want a good time, baby?" and then press the right arrow key. She'll then hop in your car, and be careful not to run into many things or kill a lot of people because she might get frightened and as soon as she gets a chance, she'll leave the car. With the hooker, drive to a secluded, or empty place then park and don't move the car. After a few seconds, she'll say "This palce is OK" and then you'll notice the car going up and down.. You'll hear some..graphic noises such as moaning or CJ saying "Come on, baby" or something like that. After their business, the hooker will leave the car. After you're finished with a hooker, you can kill her and get all your money back.

Increase CJ's Lung Capacity

The more CJ swims the greater his lung capacity becomes. This becomes important if you are being chased and need to dive down underwater so that your attacker loses your trail.

More respect and sex appeal

Picking the right clothes can aid in increasing both respect and sex appeal. Clothing accounts for about 50% of your overall sex appeal and 4% of your respect level. The better CJ looks the more positive comments he'll receive from pedestrians passing by. For cost effective clothing try Surburban (Opens during Sweet's fourth mission "Nines & AKs") and Zip (when you enter San Fierro storyline)

Gang Members will return fire to anyone who attacks you, and shoot at rival gang members and cops. Also they participate in drive-bys (up to 4 members shooting at once), but aren't reliable in other endeavors.

Losing Weight

Cj can lose weight by exercising or dieting. If you want CJ to go on a diet, you must avoid food for 48 game hours (48 real-time minutes) which will cause him to lose fat at a rate of 2.5% per hour. Following an additional 26 hours, he will lose muscle at a rate of 2.5% per hour and once his fat stat reaches 0, he will begin to lose health.


Go slow or stop near a hooker and if she says \"Want a good time baby\" press the right key on the D-pad. She will then get in the car. Drive to a secluded place (some prefer more secluded to others) and you will see the car moving up and down and hear graphic sounds. After you have finished the controller will vibrate for a second. Once the hooker gets out of the car you can kill her and get you money back. If you have completed the 10 pimp missions (must be done all at once) the hookers will pay you to have sex with them.
