GTA Online suddenly gave a player $2.3 million in-game for their dedication, yet it’s unclear why the reward is so high.

Grand Theft Auto Online gives users plenty of ways to earn millions of in-game dollars. Completing Heists, of course, provides some of the most lucrative payouts.

Other activities such as Time Trails, Gunrunning, and VIP tasks also work wonders for those trying to increase their funds quickly.

However, it appears players get lucky occasionally, raking in millions of dollars at once for unknown reasons.

GTA Online player confused by in-game reward worth millions

Reddit user Mirimicus recently posted a screenshot that showed Rockstar awarded them for “being a dedicated GTA Online player.” The reward totals a shocking $2.3 million of in-game cash.

In sharing the news, the Redditor asked fellow players if anyone knew why they were suddenly receiving so much “free money.” Comments from equally baffled fans fill the thread.

One person suggested it may relate to the player completing a Heist Finale under certain circumstances. But the original poster said they already received the bonus for the Heist event hosted in November.

Another Redditor suggested the gift worth millions may be owed to the GTA Online’s recent Shark Card adjustments. According to the commenter, buying Shark Cards now increases their value; thus, “if you recently bought Shark Cards [Rockstar donates] the extra money you would have gotten.”

Whether or not these changes apply to the award money referenced above remains unclear. But it wouldn’t be a bad idea for “dedicated” GTA Online users to keep an eye out for extra funds.
