The GTA Online Inside Track game in the Diamond Casino offers players the chance to win big just for predicting the winning horse, and make no mistake, there’s a knack to this as well as luck.

First things first, you’re going to need to grab some Casino chips from the cashier. 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.

GTA Casino 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.

Main Event or Single Event? Let’s take a look.

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.

Knowing how the odds stack in your favor, or against you, is key.

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 Games
Don’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!

Sony’s next major State of Play event is on the horizon as the PlayStation nation is in store for “deep dives” on a wide array of upcoming titles. From when it all kicks off to what we can expect, here’s everything there is to know.

With a lack of physical events in 2021, gaming industry juggernauts have turned to online events to break the latest news. Hot off the heels of Nintendo’s latest Direct event, Sony is next in line for a huge showcase.

State of Play broadcasts have ranged from smaller indie events to blockbuster hardware reveals. This time around, Sony appears set to focus on upcoming PS4 and PS5 titles.

There were just four State of Play events through 2020 and each focused on major developments for the PlayStation brand. You won’t want to miss the next livestream; here’s how you can tune in.

Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart could be a big focus throughout this State of Play.

When is Sony’s next State of Play event?

Sony locked in dates for the next State of Play event in a February 23 announcement. It’s all set to go live on Thursday, February 25 at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 10 PM GMT.

While no exact duration was announced, Sony expects the upcoming broadcast to run for roughly “30 minutes or so.”

No different from previous events, this State of Play will be streamed live across the official PlayStation YouTube and Twitch channels. We’ve embedded the stream below for your convenience.

Sony confirms State of Play details

While no specific titles were mentioned, Sony confirmed that 10 games will be in focus throughout the upcoming stream. These games will range from indie titles, to third-party developments, and even brand new game announcements.

The event won’t fixate solely on PS5 releases either. A number of the titles on display are coming to both PS4 & PS5, they confirmed in a recent blog post.

There also won’t be an emphasis on “PlayStation hardware or business-focused updates” throughout the stream; this State of Play is about upcoming games.

It could be too early for new information on Horizon Forbidden West.

What to expect from the next State of Play event?

Almost a quarter of the way through the year already, Sony still has a long list of titles set for the coming nine months. It’s safe to assume this State of Play could provide new looks at Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Deathloop, and even Returnal.

It’s likely too early for any considerable updates on the likes of Horizon Forbidden West or the God of War sequel, however. 

With new games set to be revealed though, anything is possible.

We’re yet to hear from Bend Studio, Santa Monica Studio is rumored to be working on a second project, and of course, Naughty Dog has been relatively quiet since the release of The Last of Us Part II. It’s possible we finally see the multiplayer update in action, along with a potential PS5 port.
