This means you are a Criminal and a Police officer at the same time. This means you can rob anything other than the Bank , and you cannot be killed or arrested. If you can get ahold of handcuffs, then you can arrest people as well. The only problem is that you cannot shoot innocent prisoners. This glitch can be fixed by leaving the server, if you want.

You will either be launched into the air or stop spinning entirely. While driving a Dirtbike into the Bank while the doors are open or during a robbery, you can stay inside the Bank when the robbery ends. Walk In Cuffs Glitch: Prisoners sometimes are found walking around in the arrested position, with their arms behind their backs. Finally when you are on the building keep pressing S to go up. Asimo has decided to keep this glitch.

Back into the wall at an angle roughly 45 degrees works well, but experiment around. When one of the the back wheels makes contact, quickly switch direction to counteract the angle. This will help to start the climb. Sometimes, when you spawn at the mountain criminal base, you will spawn on the mountain instead of inside. Out of The Map Glitch: Sometimes, when joining a new game or switching teams, you spawn under the map. This is caused by an unknown reason. This glitch only works on the Dirtbike and the Porsche. To morph, press "C" to crouch right before you press "e" to enter the vehicle.

To fly higher, ramp off something and spam V to stay in the air. You can control the vehicle like normally, but you have to spam V. Sometimes in a laggy server or a poor device, you can't change out of your prison jumpsuit at a criminal base after you escape, forcing you to kill yourself to remove it or to just keep it on. If you are killed as a cop by arresting an innocent prisoner, and quickly switch teams to prisoner before being teleported to your cell, you will spawn in your cell as a prisoner, but with a taser and handcuffs.

To do this glitch, get a car Preferably a fast one , and drive it. While you're driving, exit the vehicle while it's accelerating. Then, get another vehicle and drive into the bumper of the vehicle that you just exited. If done correctly, the vehicle you're in should fly back. Simply you get a glider and a weapon, and spam the 2 items while jumping, and glitch into the ground.

Then equip weapon, and walk out and troll. It makes you invisible only on your screen Free Mobile Garage Glitch: With any vehicle, go to any garage Garage 1 or Garage 2 , then, when you enter, reset your character. After that, when you spawn, the Garage menu will still show on your screen.

Then, go to any vehicle and customize your vehicle without going to the Garage. This will only works one time. If you want to do this glitch again, repeat the instructions. This occurs if you are driving the ATV and you have a second person get on as the passenger. This can cause one or two of the ATV's wheels to get stuck in the ground, which does reduce the vehicle's speed while having the passenger on it. If the passenger gets off and you as the driver press the V button, the vehicle will return to normal. This is a poorly tested glitch so not a lot of information is available, for example, it may work with only specific item or maybe it works on cars.

If done incorrectly, this could result in the Equipped Items in a Vehicle glitch. When the server freezes for you and you lag, And punch the same Jewelry box a lot of times, You can get max money in the Jewelry Store, and a lot of glass particles will show up on top of the Jewelry box.

This glitch can only happen if your server ping is laggy This glitch can also happen on other games with certain tasks like killing a player 5 times once while in freezing lag Flying Car Glitch: Get a Glider, and go to any vehicle, and when you see the E to enter the driver seat, press Spacebar, Left Click, and E. Your car will glitch underground, but then it will start flying around the map. To fly higher, go on a ramp and it will keep going until it slowly touches the ground again.

If you look down and touch the ground completely, the car will flip and stop gliding, so you have to get another glider again. Then, reorder your hotbar and then your bag will be gone. You will still have the bag, though, and you can turn it in at the Mountain Criminal Base. Sometimes when you open the vault, you will get flung onto the side of the open red boxcar. A way to avoid this is to run backwards right after the vault is opened. If you zoom into first person, sprint, look down and away at a wall, press S, D, and A, and you should be sliding across the wall, and then you'll glitch through it.

You may also need to turn your camera. This even works with doors. May take some time. Doesn't work on very thick walls. Except for now you have to go in front of a wall or glass window if not too thick and look up, zoom in and start walking forward. Later on after the museum update, where Asimo fixed the past no-clip glitch from before by adding a function that makes your avatar go backward when crouching which prevented you from using the no-clip glitch.

However you could now use the first no-clip glitch by zooming in walking backwards and crawling. Sadly this was patched in a Miscellaneous Update that fixed uncontrollable ATV'S and jumping while crouching which just happened to patch the glitch. Now this only works with cell bars. Go on the switch team menu, select police, and spam confirm, and how many times you clicked confirm is how many times you will spawn.

Can be useful during Cell Time. Arrested for No Reason Glitch: If you pickpocket a cop in the Prison, you can be arrested. This can only happen once. Sometimes the metal door and the vault in the bank is already open for you, and not other people. Sometimes if a criminal or a prisoner will have high server ping, it will cause them to be invincible to all arrests. To do this aim your helicopter rope on the hole, get in the passenger seat and press G and jump out to try to arrest criminals.

Spawning on the Roof Glitch: Sometimes, when you re-spawn, you will spawn above the spot you were supposed to spawn. This especially works when you spawn at the Cave Base as a criminal. Entering the Museum while it's closed Glitch: To do this, you must have a Blackhawk or a Helicopter. Then, activate your rope and try to glitch the rope at a window The back window works the best. After that get inside the rope and you are inside the Museum.

This glitch requires a dirtbike. To do this, spam your weapons and enter the driver's seat and exit and keep spamming until after you exit. You can noclip into the jewelry store, the bank, and outside of the museum.

To climb up the museum you need the zombie animation package. Helicopter Infinite Height Glitch: To do this, get a helicopter, bring a friend, find a hill, and let your friend shoot down your helicopter. While it is being shot down, go straight to the hill, and the helicopter will go higher than the maximum height you can go. This glitch rarely occurs, if you shoot an police officer you can get arrested and get an similar notification as the one if you try to arrest an prisoner. To do this, you will to do the Bag Glitch.

After that, complete the laser puzzle. Make sure you are zoomed in for spam crawl and face the lever Museum Item Duplication Glitch: To do this, two players must grab the same item at nearly the exact same time. If successful, both players will receive the item. Criminal Bank Closure Giltch: Very rarely, the bank robbery will end as a criminal because a criminal entered the vault. This glitch is also accompanied by the bank GUI still being on your screen but unable to collect the bank cash.

Equipped Item While Crouching Giltch: To do this giltch, rapidly equip the item continuously. But if you just ask the specific question "is the manufacturer partly responsible? In the hypothetical case of the cashier manufacturer and the real case of the slot machine manufacturer. Anonymous Coward , 7 Jan 8: Therefore they should be expected to be responsible for the amount of the product not the amount of the crime. It is the responsibility of the casino to verify the quality of the purchased product before putting it to use. I have to say that I believe the first guy who got 9 free dollars for ever dollar put in the machine should not have been arrested, however the "high roller" is definitely "hacking" the system by forcing the machine to function in a way that would allow him a better return on his odds.

I have to say that I believe the first guy who got 9 free dollars for ever dollar put in the machine should not have been arrested I agree.

How was he to know it wasn't the expected behaviour of the machine? It's not his responsibility to ensure the machine is behaving sanely, just to put his money in and maybe get some out. Jason , 7 Jan 8: Yeah, that doesn't track with the basic tenets of liability for negligence. If you can show someone had a duty to perform, failed to perform that duty, and that actual damages were proximately caused by that failure, then that would show liability for negligence.

Greevar profile , 7 Jan 8: Let's put it this way. A person using one of those "self-checkouts", that are popular at the larger stores, finds a glitch. By accident, the user discovers that the machine gives out more change than it should when you pay in multiples of 6. Now knowing this, the user takes advantage of the glitch. These machines have been authorized by the owners of the store to dispense transactions as it is programmed.

Is Figuring Out A Slot Machine Software Glitch & Making Money From It A Crime?

The customer is merely interacting with the machine as it is programmed. The correct thing to do would be to ban the person from the store as is their right , then report the glitch to correct it, and pursue any reparations owed. It would be difficult to prove intent to defraud the store unless the security video showed this person repeatedly using the checkout without leaving the store. I think it would be hard to do the same in the case of the casino due to the fact that many people will switch to different slot machines frequently.

Using a machine glitch to beat a slot game is no different, in my mind, than counting cards. They don't like it, but you didn't actually break the law. They should kick you out and fix the flaw instead. Anonymous Coward , 7 Jan 9: That person using the self checkouts would still be breaking the law. As soon as they realize that they are getting too much change or maybe all of their money back, whatever , and continue to do it, they have the intent required by law to be charged with fraud.

Actually, it is very different. On the machine, you are doing something to steal money with certainty. Card counting is a skill, and is still not entirely certain. It is one of the reasons that most casinos play blackjack with multiple decks usually 5 or more and cut at least 1 pack up for the stop card. That all but entirely removes the card count benefit, unless a significant number of faces and aces come up very early in the shoe.

Otherwise, the card count advantage is miniscule. You are confusing outright fraud with attempting to gain an advantage. One is a game of change, one is no chance at all, it's a certain payout. Phillip Vector profile , 7 Jan 3: Counting cards is not illegal. Michial Thompson , 7 Jan 7: In the latter case: If not legal theft and least moral theft. His continued actions beyond the first time maybe a second to confirm it he realized that it was not working properly constitutes THEFT.

Now if that glitch required ANY action other than simply inserting the coin to cause the error to occur then there should be no legal question as to it being theft or not. If it was simply inserting the coin I can see some gray area, but from a simply moral stand point it is still theft. Whether the term "theft" applies in either of the cases is irrelevent to the point of whether the slot machine manufacture bears at least some of the responsiblity.

The other poster, Jan Breens, may be viewing this in terms of legal liability, but Mike didn't use that term. He just suggested that the manufacturer may be partly "responsible". One one side, I think that, if you intentionally "trick" a slot machine to give you more of a payout than you know you deserve, you should be punished according to the law. You knew it was wrong, but did it anyway.

That's very clear in my mind. But if you had to assign some subjective "responsiblity percentage" to the manufacturer for the overall problem, shouldn't that be something greater than 0? In other words, regardless of whether the manufacturer is legally liable to provide reimbursement, can't you at least say that their programming of the machine was part of the chain of events which directly led to the theft and therefore bears some moral responsibility?

Or can a company just put out flawed products and have no responsibility at all? Michial Thompson , 7 Jan 9: WOW, I find it amazing how clueless some readers are My first statement WAS: Hulser profile , 7 Jan Based on the above, it sounds like our thoughts on this topic are close, so why the ad hominem attacks?

Special Offer

Have you considered the possibility that the person you're talking to may not actually be "clueless" or "stupid", but there may just be a simple misunderstanding between two people? Your analogy makes no sense. It would make more sense if there was a sign on the cash register that said "Please take any money from this while its open! Ah, but the slot machines don't say "Use my software bugs to take more money than I would normally give out" now do they? Anonymous Coward , 7 Jan 7: Of course, but a slot machine is a totally different scenario than a cash register.

It's more like being able to read what a lottery ticket says before you buy it the scratch off kind. Maybe its fraud, maybe its not, I don't know. I'm on the fence here. I mean, they should be responsible for their own software, not the end user, right? Mike profile , 7 Jan 7: Actually I think they do. Casino's actively encourage people to think they can come out ahead of a slot machine, and people think they're doing that all the time.

That' why some people get upset if someone takes their "warmed up slot", or why they'll wager more after they see certain sequences. I really don't think a player should be penalized because they actually discover a way that works. Jason , 7 Jan 9: You can't arbitrarily assign a duty to this guy that he doesn't have.

It is not his obligation to expect to lose and report it as wrong when he doesn't. As for the 10 for 1 input, it's not at all unreasonable for him to figure that this is a promotional scheme functioning as intended by the casino. Many casinos offer free money to play, and an automated 10 for 1 would be a great way to make that more efficient. Then you simply set the odds to account for this, but start with some friendlier promotional odds that reel in the players. Later they're still psyched up about getting the 10 for 1 promo, and the adjusted odds just begin to feel like maybe their luck has run out, but hey who cares if I'm getting to play 10 bucks for one.

It's perfectly natural for people to assume that Casinos do this sort of thing all the time. Why would he have even doubted this was the case? The Groove Tiger profile , 7 Jan 6: The sad part is that Mike is pretty much saying that the guy did commit fraud on the casino. So to disagree with him and "fail" him, you create a strawman where Imaginary Mike says it should be fine to steal from a casino. Now that is what I call a "logic fail", and it's documented, to boot. Most crimes have both a mens rea intent and a mens acta action requirement. Both must be present for the crime to be complete.

Mens rea is something altogether different than conspiracy. Mens rea could be as simple as accidentally walking out of a grocery store with a cartful of unpaid groceries versus going to the store with the purpose of stealing the groceries and actually shoplifting them. In both cases the acts are identical, but if you can demonstrate the lack of intent such as you were caught while on the way back into the store with your checkbook and pen in hand with a befuddled and apologetic lookk on your face , then there was in fact no crime even though the actions were identical.

Basic murder is a good example. You have to have both the act and the intent to kill in order to be guilty of murder. Conspiracy doesn't enter into it. How can that be true for manslaughter? You can have negligence that is criminal. A person acts negligently when he should have been aware of a substantial and unjustifiable risk that a certain result will occur because of his conduct. The idea is that even though a negligent person is unaware of the risk and therefore does not have a "criminal mind," the law will impute that awareness to him because a reasonable person would have been so aware.

Generally, crime isn't about intent, it's about actions. Crimes are about both intent and action. Intent is the "mens rea," and action is the "actus reus. Rob , 7 Jan 8: I could see it could be fraud if he himself put the bug or glitch in the machine. However if he's just pressing buttons, he's not really operating it outside it's intended use. He's just better at it than most button pushers. Kind of like baseball players exploiting the "hit it hard" glitch in a bat that I don't know about. Cowardly Anon , 7 Jan 8: No, his intent wasn't to defraud the casino, it was to win.

Casinos are all about that allure of winning and they are run on it. Gamblers do what they do to win money. He played the game and won money. Was it his fault there was a bug in the system the casino used? So why is it his fault for using that fault to win money. Hell, by him asking the casino staff to modify the machines to his advantage and them doing it shows that he wasn't exploiting anything but was playing the game. And going to your analogy, it is flawed. If the cash register miscalculated the change back in your favor and the attendant gave it to you and you noticed, would you comment?

Very few people would, but if you don't are you trying to defraud the store? DJ profile , 7 Jan 9: It wasn't "oops" and there is a jackpot Anonymous Coward , 7 Jan All it proves is that even when presented with the obvious, TD soft peddles it and at best suggests it is "more reasonable".

The argument is why you even start down this road. It is clear that this guy continued to use a defect in the system to defraud the casinos of money, and apparently even took steps to assure that the circumstances were right for it to occur. There is no "more reasonable" here, just fraud. Arguing any other people is meaningless, because the illegal act still occurs.

Now, as a matter of contract law, might the machine maker have some sort of liability issue to the casino for the malfunctioning machine? It would depend on how that malfunction occurred. If it was a setup or operations issue, the answer would be no. If there was a clear bug in the software that happened regardless of the steps taken by the casino, then probably yes. But there is no direct liability connection between the player and the machine maker.

Each of those is a separate issue, no one ball of wax. ECA profile , 7 Jan Small compact and easy to service. If you knew a way to make your car work better, would you do it? Anonymous Coward , 8 Sep Tough shit , dont think casinos give you your money back if it was going the other way! Anonymous Coward , 13 Jan 1: Right is right and wrong is wrong. As an aside, all slot machines in today should have something on them saying "Malfunction voids all pays and plays," which saves the casino from being taken advantage of. For the state in which I work, all slot machines go to GLI for independent testing.

The people who test the machines are absolutely brilliantly minded people, but even they can't catch everything. There are also errors that can be made by the slot techs. There is quite a bit to optioning a machines, and this differs from manufacturer to manufacturer.

  8. Then, factor in different printers, bill validators, and other components and it becomes increasingly more difficult to avoid all errors. Setting up the currency wrong, could result a multi-million dollar error for the casino. This has been proven in the past by slot technicians who incorrectly setup a machine for caribbean currency instead of USD.

    This results in each credit a player puts into the machine, it is automatically multiplied by a variable based on the currency setting. Thing such as bill testing a machine also prevents this from occurring. Maybe a little off topic, but just some information for you all.

    Annonymous , 22 Jul 7: Yes maybe "he's logic" is wrong I'm not saying it is but you are only adding your little part that it could be considered stealing, But in fact no, no it is not. Kingster profile , 7 Jan 6: A quick google brings up this: A person commits the offense of criminal use of a computer if, having no right to do so or any reasonable ground to believe the person has such a right, the person knowingly accesses, causes to be accessed, or exceeds the person's authorized access to a computer, computer system, computer program, computer network, or any part of a computer system or network source: Saying some liability, for the crime committed using a piece of software, should be directed at the software manufacturer seems equally distorted to me.

    Unless of course, serious negligence on the part of the manufacturer can be demonstrated. However in the case of a software bug that seems rather unlikely to me You have to understand, this is how TD looks at many things. Piracy is wrong, it's illegal, it's violating the law, but because it is technically possible, it is somehow someone else's fault.

    how crime become a glitch

    No matter what defects may exist in the slot machine, the intent of the "high roller" was to defraud the casino. He didn't win the money fairly, he took advantage of a programming glitch to rob them. No different from finding a door open and stealing what is in someones car or finding the door open to a store late and night and thinking it's okay to steal their inventory. It is truly a logical fail, and it explains why TD often has such a weird view of things.

    The eejit profile , 7 Jan 8: TD has always said that piracy is against the law. What Mike and others often aregue, is that the laws should be changed in favour of the consumers, not faceless megacorps. On this particular issue, however, I agree with those who find Mike's conclusion questionable. Technically speaking, it is fraud.

    And being technically correct is the best kind of correct. Really though, it's the same thing. Fraud is illegal, but somehow TD appears to be shoving the responsibility off onto everyone else. The piracy deal is the same. It may be illegal, but because it is technically possible and it happens because "the industry isn't meeting people's needs" it is somehow right. The burden of responsibility gets transferred to someone else, not the lawbreaker. This case just makes the mentality and the logic so much clearer. Eugene profile , 7 Jan From a civil standpoint, if I was that casino, I would sue the HELL out of that slot manufacturer for negligence in selling me a faulty product that put my business at risk.

    Which is pretty much what Mike is suggesting here in so many words. To say the manufacture bears no responsibility whatsoever, simply because they didn't do the stealing, is naive. Huph , 7 Jan 9: I think you're right in that TD often encourages more sane laws in favor of the public vs corporations, but as far as piracy goes, my take on the TD line is that legality is a non-issue now that technology makes it hard NOT to copy something, what's important is finding a way to make money in spite of it.

    Pragmatism is the name of the game. There's a lot of soft endorsement of illegal distribution, along with people who are outright loud about it. There are people who seem to think that artists are lazy chumps who want a free ride, and people who apparently have a problem with anyone exercising any legal muscle. Luckily there are some dissenting voices of reason, who are neither "IP Maximalists" nor "Freetards". All these phrases and sloganeering are dumb as hell and only serve to trivialize how complicated these issues really are.

    Let's cut out this ad campaign for issues and appeal to people through their reason and intellect I do kind of wish they would bring in some writers with more varied opinions. For instance, I agree with the criticism that TD loves to dispense business advice for musicians without any real clear idea of what goes into a musical career. The complicated web of credits and legalities that go into bringing multiple creative people together with their own input to and ownership of a project We're not all solo artists!

    She's not a model for future musicians. Now, it is true that some artists will in fact bubble up, but it's mostly going to be boring mid-level talent with an interesting story behind them. Marcus Carab profile , 7 Jan For a whole new Leonard Cohen? I can't imagine a limit to what I'd trade We have a winner.

    Soft peddling the legality of piracy isn't the half of it. Really, they key is that all discussions start with "now that music has no market value When you start from an odd point of view like TD does, you end up down some dusty dirt roads of thought. You won't find many shining examples of musicians "making it", because most of the examples that keep coming up here are bands who made it on the label system, or who are playing indie when they really are not.

    Some of the examples are artists on the back side of a good label career, selling their time to wealthy patrons who basically pay them to write music nobody will even listen to. On one side, it's nasty to think of the artists talking down the label system, and then cashing the checks, living on their licensing deals, and collecting royalties up the wazzo every time their stuff plays, and on the other side you have people who most of us wouldn't listen to if we were paid. That doesn't make for much advancement. I would give up all of the youtube age to get to sit through one more Frank Zappa concert.

    Damn, I miss his wit, skill, and intelligence and potty humor. CommonSense profile , 7 Jan 9: This guy didn't do anything himself except use the slot machines. Any tinkering to the machine, as explained in the summary up there, was done by casino workers. Yes, he had to ask them, but they said yes and did the work. By your logic, if I went to the batting cages, chose a cage that I knew had an adjustable throwing machine, asked an employee to adjust it so that it would throw a couple extra balls for my dollar and he agreed and did so, I would be guilty of a crime.

    In the case of the casino, the only "crime" i see, is the foolishness of the casino workers to adjust the machines that this guy was winning on. This should be a lesson to the casino only, and they should fix their faulty machines. You cash register analogy is woefully inadequete and not similiar at all. Let's go for another one. Let's say you just put a dollar into change machine and instead of giving you 4 quarters, it gives 8.

    You try it again and the same thing happens. How much blame do you really have for a faulty machine? Well, if you keep doing it over and over, ripping off the guy who owns the machine, you are still stealing. One time - huh, thats strange Second time - satisfies your experimental curiousity After that, there ought to be some moral obligation to let the guy who owns the machine know, so he isn't out a bunch of money.

    Marcus Carab profile , 7 Jan 9: I'm somewhat on the fence about this, and though I totally see your point here, I also wonder: I'm curious to know if there are rules posted near the slot machine, because to me, slots seem like a "beat the machine" game: How can it be called gambling when its programmed to not let you win but instead if your smart enough to figure out the games patterns , your looked at as stealing. Forge , 7 Jan 8: To use your change machine analogy, using the one dollar bills in your pocket is discovering the bug, what this guy did was going to the bank and getting a large stack of one dollar bills to go back and sit at the change machine till it was empty.

    One is a bug, the other is fraud. It's a question of intent. Trigger profile , 7 Jan 6: I agree with AC 1 that what he did was fraud. The analogy was way off, but it's still fraud. This guy didn't just do it at one casino, he did it at multiple ones and they found he was planning to do it world wide.

    Here's my question; How much coding does there have to be to open this loophole? This is obviously a glitch in what controls the payout. So if this code can be so easily abused by this guy, how much easier could it be to abuse it by the casino itself? Chris , 7 Jan 8: The casino doesn't have to abuse it. Trigger profile , 7 Jan 8: This guy didn't have to abuse it ether, yet he did. I just think the fact that it exists is a problem. If they removed it then they would remove these problems and my fear. Darryl , 7 Jan 6: Thats funny, as tecnically most would say hacking is figuring out a bug in the software and using that to your advantage!!!..

    Casino's have a rule, they apply, it's called 'altering the outcome of the game'. That means if you try to cheat in any way, if you try to alter the outcome of the game you are labelled an "undesirable" and you are blackbaned. From all casino's as the work together.

    Altering the outcome, could just mean bending the high cards in poker, card counting, late bets, and machine manipulation. Again, you agree to those rules when you agree to use their services, and you have to accept what happens to you should you choose to willingly break those rules, or any laws that you may also be living under. AJ , 7 Jan 7: Make full use of and derive benefit from a resource: Hacking would indictate he "broke into" the computer, where in this case, he did not. He simply took advantage of a "defect", in doing so he obviously commited fraud, but he didn't "hack into" the machine Darryl , 7 Jan 7: As well as manipulating a computer to commit a crime, and a felony crime in most of your states.

    ChurchHatesTucker profile , 7 Jan 8: Beta profile , 7 Jan 7: It looks like a legal term, not to be taken literally. Counting cards is not cheating, it is simply shrewd play.
