After you complete the initial game missions and enter wellsprings for the first time you are given the chance to play a couple of different mini-games with the locals. You have to meet with the mayor first and get your own garage and your replacement armor for your ark suit. After you get your armor its time to play. If you don't have any start up money and nothing to sell, look on the mayors desk in his office on the bottom right corner. You will see a vault boy bobblehead worth a whopping $150! Thats even more than you can sell felltrite for! Sell the bobble head and look for an alley where a couple of locals are squatting near a game board with some holograms on it. The game is simple, you get three chances to roll the dice. After each roll the dice will either come up a skull or a crosshair. If you get a crosshair the sheriff hologram in the middle shoots and destroys a mutant hologram. If you take out all of the mutants before the end of the third role than you win, if not, you lose the money you bet. You can bet up to $25 per game. If you get four crosshairs in the first round, you get 10x the money you bet back in winnings. If you beat all the mutants by the second round than you get 4x your winnings, and if you beat all of them by the end of the third round then you break even. As far as I know this game is random, so just keep playing until you win.
Now here is the hint, save your game before you play. If you win enough money to make more than you started out with, then exit the minigame and save. Then go and play again. If you lose more money than you win, then just load up your save and try again. I started with $150, in less than an hour I had over $725! Its not really a cheat, but it helps to make infinite money to stock up on ammo and items early in the game if you are willing to take the time to do it.
If your class is either Engieneer or Crimson Elite ( Anarchy Edition ) you can buy the ingredients to make a sentry bot for $81, then build and sell them for $85. This is a $4 profit. If done repeatedly you can build them in groups of 25 for a $100 profit. In half an hour you can make over $1000 and as many constructible items as you like.
To get real easy money by winning card games, go to Subway Town and challenge the woman to a 'Normal' game with these cards -
RC Car Bomb
This should fill or nearly fill your points for allocating cards.
I used this deck and won $5000 in under an hour. It works because you are guarenteed to get all your attacking cards out. However, it is not 100% undefeatable, but I won 95% of the time. It may take some getting used to, but a definite pattern should emerge.
