Why not just clone the gambling books and gamble on the giant pink slot machine in slot ranch? I was roughly averaging 500,000 every 10 minutes or so, and that was only with 3 gambling books. If someone wants to try this hit me up.

Because even if you win $100k every every time, it's still not $400k every time.

Nah, that wouldn't help much. If you just stay in the area, less zombies start spawning back in. You either have to leave or save/reload to get the max zombies back in the area for maximum kills. Being able to drive the vehicle longer would actually screw you over.

And I doubt you'd get $100k every time anyway.

The unsaid truth is... if you already have 12 item slots, you are already high level and probably don't need the $...

For those with 6-9 slots? The machine is the fastest $ maker.
Afterwards? Hell yeah.

Also you only need to get the books once as if you do it for 15 minutes you will have enough money to last you the rest of the game

Not really. You don't get money for leveling up, and even just playing without any tricks, you can get to level 50 and not be anywhere close to having spent $6 million yet. And this is clearly so much better than dicking around with that worthless slot machine.

Nice find. I'll be sure to give this a try later on. Not sure what to do with all that cash though (besides get the achievement and get me some Knight Boots).

I understand it all and also i'd like to add my two cents:

The link below is an interactive map which you can use to find the magazine locations yourself with a better idea of there exact locations plus theres loads more on there which is helpful.
Click Here

As for the glitch itself - i've recently updated the game therefore theres been a patch of some kind and whith that in thought it won't be long till this gets patched and therefore if you wanna do it you wanna do it fast!!

Also i've found that for every 1.000.000.000 (1 Billion Dollars) you earn in game it will total to 1 million PP points at the ending where it tallys up the points etc for the overal PP score.

I havn't seen a video link yet i may have passed it not too sure but a quick question:

When buying the SUV key you can only buy it once right? in one playthrough? or does the game see it as that you havn't paid for it therefore you don't get the key but instead get paid 400k?? this part needs to be cleared up for me.

Also when starting a new playthrough you need to find katey zombrex and you need to contiue playing until you meet the pawnshop guy outside at moe's store summet i dunno the name of it atm but its opposite the cinema i know for sure and once you meet that guy you unlock all Pawn Shops in the city and from here you can then do this glitch with a friend.

Whoever said you can save your game with weapons then find the same weapon after saving - no offence but your an idiot all weapons spawn once you leave the area, but if you have magz on you they won't respawn until you drop them and leave the area they're in. And so no you cannot do this offline!!!

Thanks for reading and i ROFLMFHO when i read the facepalm bits cheers!

P.S. if someone has all 12 magz in there inventory, save the game with them in and load it up for someone to join can they then just pass them on to that persorn when loading up their save?? If so can someone do this? Just like KalscensioN mentioned and whoever does add me and message me when you have the save ready to use please

No, the patch hasn't fixed it it works fine I did it about 10 minutes ago. You have to start up your single player game first before joining. For example if you are on the main menu and join your mate's game you end up with no weapons. If you load up your single player game first so you are actually in the game THEN join his game you will carry over whatever you have on you at that moment into his game. Easy peasy.

This glitch definitely works. You can just stand and keep buying SUV keys over and over again and it will keep giving you $400,000 every time.

I experimented a little bit with this glitch and found out an issue with it. You need to have at least 11 slots available before you can do this glitch. If you only have 10 books on you when you enter a shop all the shop items disappear and it won't let you buy anything. Picking up or dropping a book so you have 9 or 11 books respectfully, makes the items spawn again.

It's not that big of a deal since you need 11 books before you actually start getting money back anyway but I thought I'd mention it in case anyone freaks out if they see items disappearing.

As for the poster who mentioned cloning Gambling books, there is no point. The max you win on the big slot machine is $100,000 even if you had more than 3 books. If you don't have enough slots and need to rank up you could always clone the survivor pp bonus book or even the combo weapon bonus book and that should net you quite a big point increase.

Anyone wanna work with me on this? I need a bunch of pp so maybe do the combat book for me or something and I could do something in return? Mainly wanna get enough slots to do the bargain book though. I already have both bargain books on my character if it helps at all.

Hey I never said that this would work that would have been the only way I could think of it to work offline but as you said magazines don't respawn (though weapons do) but when posting my "idea" I haven't checked this. No need to call me an idiot.

Works like a charm. With the help of my MvC Fight stick and its turbo button feature, I can attend to other things and let Chuck harvest the cash alone.
While I'm typing this I just hit 608million. 400k every 2 seconds.
