As you all might know the new GTA Casino update is going live next week. Finally, for any of those waiting for the Los Santos’ long awaited doors to open.
So when are the doors going to open? Well Rockstar has revealed its Diamond Casino & Resort will come as part of an update to GTA Online on July 23. You can see the trailer for yourself by clicking the video above.
So, whats new?
The Penthouse grants a new set of co-op missions, where you’ll work with casino owner Tao Cheng to keep the place safe from rich, threatening Texans. Completing all the new missions will unlock a new vehicle for free, although Rockstar doesn’t want to tell us what it is yet…
Using Chips, which sound like they’re the in-game casino currency rather than GTA money, you can play Three Card Poker, Blackjack, Roulette and Slot Machines. There’s also virtual horse racing, and a penthouse.The casino even has an official website, which mentions two tiers of membership: standard and VIP, the latter of which unlocks when you purchase a penthouse there.
There’s also an element called the Lucky Wheel, which sounds like it gives out random prizes. “Spin the Lucky Wheel in the lobby for chips, cash, and clothing or even the new Truffade Thrax supercar that can be found whirling on the podium during opening week,” is how Rockstar describes it. “And be sure to check back each week to see what new high-end vehicle can be won.”
The opening had been teased with building works around the exterior since early June, and the resort was formally revealed and named later on that month. It’s the first major update to the game since Arena War in late December. This brings almost six years of speculation about the casino to an end.
