As a Civilian, there are many different places that you can rob in each city. You can only rob locations within the current city. A warrant for your Arrest will be issued when you commit a Robbery and the Police will attempt to prevent you from completing the robbery.
Since Version 23, each robbery now has individual settings, minimum/maximum times, bonuses, chances, etc. Robberies closer to police activity have been made a bit easier, robberies further from police have been made a bit harder. The chance of immediately failing a robbery now depends on different factors.
There is now an alarm sound for robbery alarms. The alarm for a robbery location will no longer go off immediately. Cops are notified of the robbery only when the alarm goes off. The time before the robbery goes off depends on different factors. If a law enforcement agent gets close to you during a robbery, the alarm will go off immediately. The time you have to wait to complete the robbery is now variable, and yes you guessed it, depends on different factors!
The payout for all robberies now depends on the amount of cops and civilians on the server.
Any robbery can be started by using /robbery.
Each of the three Casinos in Las Venturas (The Four Dragons Casino, Caligulas Palace, and Redsands Casino) can be robbed. The Casino in San Fierro and Temple Casino in Los Santos can also be robbed. A robbery checkpoint will indicate the Robbery Mission location. Once you complete the robbery inside the Casino, you will have to bring the safe to a randomly selected hideout to be cracked and receive your money.
