When you commit a crime in Bitlife, you can get sent to prison if you are found guilty. Prison in Bitlife is not fun. The activities you can perform in this place are limited. To survive in prison, you must maintain your happiness and health stats. Having high behavior stat may help you get out before your sentence ends. This stat also determines if the guards will take you to the infirmary when you want to go there. You can also get a job in this place. However, the pay is low. There are two ways to lawfully get out of prison before the end of your sentence:
Appeal your sentence; To do this, you must have enough money to hire a law firm. The fee you will pay for a law firm depends on your crime and punishment. You can only appeal once during your prison term.
Get out on parole; After serving some time in prison, if your behavior stat is high, you may get a parole hearing where you have to choose the correct option. If you select the wrong one, you won’t get paroled. You will get released from prison if you give the correct answer to the question.
You can also escape from prison before your term ends. There are also two methods of executing this:
Riot; When you select this option, you will have to play a mini-game where you must gather prisoners and avoid guards. You will start with ten prisoners and may go as far as 25 prisoners. Riot in Bitlife is dangerous as people may die or get injured. If unsuccessful, you will get an additional sentence.
Escape; Likewise the riot option, you can attempt to escape by playing a minigame. This option is better than rioting. To win, outsmart the guard and get to the exit. The complexity of this game depends on the security of the prison. Depending on your crime, you can get sent to a minimum, medium, or maximum security facility. It is difficult to escape from a maximum prison. Therefore, if you can, avoid getting sent to this prison. However, if you find yourself in a maximum-security prison, this article will guide you on how to escape.
How To Get Into Prison
