GTA Online players have uncovered a brand new glitch in the game’s Casino that guarantees the featured supercar. 

After years of waiting, Rockstar Games finally swung open the doors to Grand Theft Auto Online’s casino on July 23 – renaming the North Vinewood location to the Diamond Casino and Resort.

While the long-awaited addition added a ton of new content like cars, housing, and clothing, it hasn’t been without its problems. Players have reported issues with the casino’s stability and plenty of exploits that allow them to rack up insane amounts of chips and cash. And still, despite patches from Rockstar, players have noted a fresh method to guarantee an incredibly expensive car.

Screengrab from GTA OnlinePlayers have been waiting for more than six year to run into debts at the GTA Online Casino.

In a discussion on the GTAOnline subreddit, a number of users pointed out that the new ‘four-second method’ on the game’s Lucky Spin Wheel will hand over the showcase car that players see when they walk into the casino. 

Players would need to have a ‘fresh wheel’ – one that has the clothing reward selected – before trying to spin four seconds after the game prompts them to. Other players also noted that there is no necessary power at which players need to spin, but the method “practically guarantees the podium car” if they flick down quickly on the left stick.

While Rockstar moved quickly to quell the recent inside Track exploit, which pretty much allowed players to control the race, the developers have not yet found a way to stop players from taking unlimited spins on said lucky wheel. 

Whether or not they are actively looking into this new glitch or not is unknown, but it is clearly a method that shouldn’t be in GTA V considering these podium cars are not meant to be easily won.

Players who attempt to pull off the strategy should be aware that they could face repercussions in the future if the developers begin clamping down on these exploits.

GTA 6 teaser speculation grows after players uncover more strange files in RDR2

Fans have spotted more out-of-place files in Red Dead Redemption 2 that could point toward either GTA 6 or rumors that the re-release of Grand Theft Auto V on PS5 and Xbox Series is on a new engine.

Rockstar has been mum on any information regarding the long-awaited announcement of GTA 6, but fans can hardly contain their excitement, combing through files of other games to find some clue for what the company is working on.

Now, with GTA Online players spotting code potentially referencing the RAGE Engine used in Red Dead Redemption 2, fans think there could be some connection between RDR2 and the next Grand Theft Auto.

As such, players have peeked through RDR2’s files and discovered some things that seem wildly out of place, even for the wild west.

What are these weird GTA-like files doing in Red Dead Redemption 2?

GTA Forums member ‘rollschuh2282’ noted that they found parachute-related files hidden in Red Dead. The crazy part is that the file doesn’t exist in GTA V.

“Funnily that [[email protected]@pack] animation file does not exist in V,” they wrote and provided a photo of all the parachute animations in GTA 5.

Lo and behold, the file with “pack” in its name was not among them, meaning it was unique to Red Dead 2’s code. But what would parachute files be doing in a game about cowboys?

Modern gun files don’t make sense in RDR2. Unless…

Fans believe this is either a sign towards the next-gen port of GTA V being in Red Dead Redemption 2’s engine or GTA 6.

Unfortunately, it’s unclear if the files had existed since the game’s PC release or were only recently added in a newer update.

This isn’t the first time fans have discovered weird files in RDR2. As Dexerto previously reported, weapon code for two variants of the Browning pistol, an L1A1 rifle and AK-47 were found back in late December.

In any case, more and more evidence is mounting that something is brewing at Rockstar and it isn’t just hot coffee. Only time will tell what the future holds, especially as GTA V’s re-release draws nearer.
