GTA Online's Casino Opening Next Week
Grand Theft Auto Online players are already essentially rolling the dice with their own lives every time they leave the safety of their apartments, but next week they'll have more formal gambling opportunities. At long last, the Diamond Casino & Resort will be opening its doors, after years of construction (and anticipation).
The casino, which is located on the corner of Vinewood Park Drive and Mirror Park Boulevard, will be opening on July 23. Players will be able to go inside and play a variety of games, including three card poker, blackjack, roulette, and virtual horse racing. If you have too much cash, there are also slots and a lucky wheel that you can spin. The wheel will give winners a shot at winning a car, with the new Truffade Thrax supercar up for grabs during the Diamond's opening week.
The ultrawealthy can purchase the master penthouse property, which gives its owner access to a variety of new co-op missions as part of the Diamond family. Complete the new storyline, and you can earn a new vehicle at no cost. Or, if you don't feel like getting into high-stakes drama, you can just stay at home in your swanky pad and upgrade it to gain access to a spa or private retro arcade.
If you want to get the master penthouse without spending a dime, you're in luck. Players who link their Social Club accounts with Twitch Prime and claim their benefits before end of day tomorrow can get the property at no cost, as well as GTA$1.25 and a 15-percent discount on Shark cards.
