This guide includes ways of making money that cannot be done at the beginning so it is for older players also!
Hello and welcome to my first ever guide, hope you find it useful.
I had the wish to make a newbie guide, but a useful one, so I didn't want to copy or revamp old already made guides, after spending a bunch of time at the newbie spawn helping newcomers, most of the new guys were asking for money, so I came up with the idea of making a guide that can both help new and old players.
The Casino is the place where most millionaires or even billionaires of the server are born, it is a place where you're able to earn a lot of money but also lose a lot, you can be lucky or unlucky and it would be the risky way of earning a lot of money.
You can find dealers using /dealers, it will show the dealers online at the current time and the casino they are hosting in. You can also search for casino dealers making advertisements but try being creative about it instead of just posting 'Looking for dealers', include the minimum and maximum bets you want and what type of table, blackjack or roulette.
You can also become a casino dealer by applying on the forums(here
) and host tables at any casino you wish. Hosting tables has both advantages and disadvantages, if you're hosting roulette you can win a lot of money at once if a large amount of players are betting, but you can also lose. I personally don't host roulette that much because players can bet and win 3x the amount of money they bet and if a lot of players are betting you can be in loss of a lot of money. Hosting blackjack is the way to go(in my opinion), the dealer has a high chance of winning if the player doesn't know what he's doing or isn't one of those hardcore betters that have learned the way. The player betting gets the first turn and if he goes over 21 he automaticaly loses, most players stop at 16-17 which you could pass easily with a bit of luck.
You can read the rules and how to play in the casino with the following LINK.
As the title says 'buying and selling', it's all about buying and selling vehicles or properties. You need to look for popular vehicles that you can buy and talk the seller into lowering the price so you can buy it and then resell it afterwards to someone else. Don't do this with really cheap vehicles that no one is actually interested in, seek for low prices of vehicles worth something, turismo, infernus, maverick, NRG, bullet etc... vehicles that are 'popular' and used by everyone.
Same goes for properties, it can be a business, a house or an apartment. Apartments are really cheap and usually under 20m, you can get yourself on one for 15m-17m possibly and resell it for like 20m, but take into account if the apartment has a vest(/heal) system that adds to the apartment around 15m or 16m. As for houses, you can find a nice house with a parking area, some players look for houses as an HQ, so you can get a solid amount of money for selling a house that is nice also as an HQ. Businesses are really expensive and it's not easy to purchase one, but as for everything else you can also sell one for more money, not much to talk about, but look for businesses that are useful(24/7, hardware stores, clothes shop, pay n spray or bars/restaurants for RPers).
Drugs are used by a lot of players for healing themselves in gunfights aka shootouts, most used one is heroin, but cocaine is the second one best that can be used if you're on a budget, heroin is currently being sold for 30k-35k per one gram and cocaine around 10k-15k per one gram. But other than buying the drugs you can only acquire them by producing them in a drug lab, there are a couple of drug labs(laboratories) but are owned by one individual and that is Ruvik Victoriano(Red Wolf), so it can be pretty hard getting access to one of the labs. You will need to spend a lot of time in his faction in order of getting keys or just getting close with him. Selling the drugs can be a dangerous mission since there are a lot of detectives at the current time and you'll need to be really creative with advertisements or just selling them to trust people you know. If you decide selling to a random person who had called you over the phone make sure you have some friends that can watch your back at the meeting place in case you get in trouble.
Alright, this might sound stupid but getting yourself in a faction and being able to do maverick and burrito runs can be a way of making money. But this also benefits your future in the faction, doing runs can increase the chances of getting a promotion and showing how hard working you are.
Maverick runs, you're required to have a passenger with you in order to do these, so get a person who's going to go afk or an outsider/faction member who's willing to stay in. To load a maverick you'll need $500.000 in total in order to load bullet and gun crates and sell them, selling them gives you your $500.000 back and another$50.000, so you'll be given $550.000 after selling both bullet and gun crates. But be careful, you can get attacked if an enemy notices you're doing it.
Burrito runs, they are the more dangerous ones but benefit your faction more since one burrito unloaded fills 20 HQ guns. To load a burrito you'll need 2 extra members and $500.000, after unloading the burrito into your HQ you get $525.000, so this run gives you only $25.000 each run. But be sure that you'll be attacked if a lot of enemies are online since they might patrol around tierra or check if the stocks go down via /laptop > Stocks, loading a burrito takes 20 bullest and guns from the stocks that you fill with maverick runs, so if the number lowers enemies will know that someone is doing burrito runs.

Making deals is also a way of making money, if you're in an unofficial or have manpower you can meet faction leaders and set up deals with them. You can do metal/lead runs for them and get a certain percentage of the materials produced which you can sell later, or get a certain amount of money for each run. I have done this in the unofficial I was in and earned 1 million materials in just less than a week, get yourself allied to someone in order to get protection and set up deals with them also.
Additional ways of making money who are worth mentioning:
The Stocks - You can also invest money into /stocks and waiting for them to either go up or down, it's risky but can pay out.
Being nice I guess? - Some players decide to pay an individual if he is loyal or has done something nice or helpful.
Robbing businesses -
You can get a crew of 5 or 4 civilians/facion mates assembled, some weapons and start searching for businesses with a nice amount of money. Be careful while choosing a business because it can be owned by a faction member and the faction will notify the whole alliance. You need to be at least 4 in order to rob a business but I suggest going with 5 since one can timeout and you'll be fine.
City Hall Jobs - I didn't plan on mentioning this because of everyone saying how boring and slow it is, but I'm expecting a lot of haters of what I didn't include it. Click here for a useful guide
Joining a legal faction -
You can also join a legal faction, most legal factions have an hourly payment that you receive at paytime and it can be a high amount of money.
