The Diamond Casino offers a number of new games to play in GTA dollars. 

Once you have done that, head over to the Inside Track station – located near the slot machines – and take a seat at one of the betting pods. From there, you will see that there are two options available to play, either the online Main Event race or single-player Single Event races. 

Rockstar GamesWin big in the GTA Online casino with these top tips for Inside Track.

Inside Track’s single-player races are a winner

You will notice that there’s a timer for the online races as they start up every five minutes, but single-player races can be played at any time you like and we’ve found a top tip that appears to be working. 

You’re given the option to refresh the single-player horse list by exiting the screen and going back into it, which is going to be a useful tool. Refresh the menu a few times until you find a race where the odds for horse number one is evens and the second horse is at least 5/1. 

From there, place a maximum bet on the top horse and more often than not, you can double your money with this easy trick – sourced from Reddit user buckaroono.

Spotting GTA Inside Track patterns

It’s not always about spotting the right odds for horses, though, as some players have noticed trends and patterns in the race lists within Single Events too. 

According to Trollingtheherd, who shared their method to Reddit in July following the opening of the casino, if Hennagin’s Steed is in the second position on the list against a horse with the same odds above it, it’s very likely to be the winner. 

You can keep backing out of the menu to find this, but sometimes the game may make you wait a minute or two after repeatedly exiting the game. 

When the horse with the lowest odds is not priced at evens, though, the chances of horse three or four winning also increases.

Miracles don’t happen at GTA’s Casino

This third trick is more of a rule of thumb than anything, but will certainly prevent you from throwing away thousands of your GTA cash to no avail. 

While it might be tempting to gamble a lot of money on the horses with the highest odds, with one eye on high returns, as this is virtual horse racing, not real horse racing which has a lot of unpredictable twists and turns, it’s worth noting that more often than not these runners will get beat. 

Rockstar GamesDon’t go betting 10,000 chips on Sir Scrambled every race, even if the odds are great.

Old Ill Will, Ol Skag or Sir Scrambled might win eventually, but you will lose so many chips waiting around for the miracle to happen that it probably won’t be worth the hassle. 


So, there you have it. Our top tips for the GTA Online casino game Inside Track. We’ll continue to update this article with even more top tips, patterns and trends when they’re discovered. Until then, go and rake in the millions!

GTA Online player discovers Up-n-Atomizer trick you would never think of

The Up-n-Atomizer might not look like its from the same planet as other Grand Theft Auto weapons, but one GTA Online player has discovered a handy trick with it that the everyday person would find helpful. 

The world of GTA 5 is full with violence, fast cars and loud sounds. Even if you get a few members of the community who stick to the roads and stop at traffic lights for a laugh, generally they are in the minority and the rest is utter chaos.

A gun like the Up-n-Atomizer is capable of great things, terrible, but great. Its powerful blast can send cars, buses, tanks, and even planes flying in the opposite direction.

However, one player has shown a more delicate side to the gun. Apparently, this is actually the perfect tool to move cars between parking spaces.

Moving cars isn’t difficult in GTA, but the Up-n-Atomizer definitely makes it more graceful. Well, if you use it right.

GTA Online trick for the Up-n-Atomizer

As seen in a clip posted to the GTA Online subreddit, user skelatorx7 proved that it’s not all about destruction with the weapon.

In fact, with just one small push, they were able to move their car perfectly from one place to another without doing a single scratch to it. Now, here it’s just one off the street and not many will care about that, but it would definitely be handy if it were your own insured vehicle.

As seen in the video, the player simply aimed in and fired low into the side of the car. Soon after, it flips perfectly into the next parking spot as if it was a natural way for it to happen.

Not everybody in the comments quite understood how it worked, though. One said: “How did the shot go through the car?” while another posted: “Car flip? How?”

Other users have found more crazy ways of using the Atomizer, of course, including the use of it to shift buses in the middle of the road. After all, they can be annoying, cruising around slowly in front of your speedy vehicles.

You never know, maybe in the future your mechanic will be blasting your cars over to you like this, rather than riding them to your path. Never going to happen, but definitely a funny picture to paint.
