7 . Arcade

The Arcades were introduced via the Diamond Casino Heist update. By setting up this business you can gain access to the Heist itself.

Now, the Bunker is what most players prefer to earn a large amount of cash in a relatively short amount for the time. It takes a good amount of money to set up the bunker and everything else, but the investment is definitely worth it.

The vehicle cargo missions are accessible by registering as a CEO. Setting up a vehicle cargo warehouse is also a great way to earn a decent chunk of cash in a short time. And the fun part is that the missions themselves are pretty straightforward. You locate a car and pick it for selling it to a potential client.

It doesn’t leave you dry as most of the other business at the start so that’s a plus. Doing various missions to increase your Nightclub’s popularity also generates a steady stream of money. Along with that, you can sell illegal businesses you already own too with the help of technicians you can employ.
