GTA Online: How to unlock casino easter egg using just a bottle of whiskey

Not every player who hops into the Diamond Casino and Resort will know this, but having your Grand Theft Auto Online character drink too much at the bar is actually a lot more exciting than you might think. 

At first glance, it would appear – just like the minibars found in apartments across Los Santos – that the option to guzzle down some alcohol in GTA leads pretty much nowhere, other than make your player a little tipsy. 

However, the casino seems to have brought something very different to the table with a hidden easter egg that can be found by doing just that, drinking. 

GTA screengrab, via KotakuGTA’s Online casino opened its doors in July and has attracted flocks of players there ever since.

There are a few things that you need to do – or have done – to get yourself started. You must have access to the Master Penthouse inside the casino to unlock story missions and complete the first one of those, which will allow you to advance to work missions. 

Head over to the bar in the casino. If you decide to throw back a few too many drinks, your character will eventually get drunk, but it’s a very specific shot that you will need to drink to unlock this easter egg – Macbeth Whiskey. 

Rockstar GamesThe GTA Casino Master Penthouse was once available for free to Twitch Prime members.

From there, repeatedly drink the same shots until you spawn inside a secret mission. Don’t be alarmed if it doesn’t work the first time, though, as it will take a few tries. 

Once your character passes out, there’s a good chance that they will return to their penthouse, back inside the casino, or elsewhere. You’ll know when you have been granted access as it will spawn you right into a mission, as seen in Ice InfluX‘s YouTube video below.

Judging by the evidence here, it looks like completing the mission will land you with $6,500 of in-game cash, which isn’t half bad for having a few drinks at the bar.

Rockstar Games have got a Grand Theft Auto Online update that plays into Black Friday with a whole host of sales for vehicles, businesses, and buildings. 

GTA Online’s weekly updates are always something to look forward to for fans, as Rockstar Games rolls out some bonuses so that players can build up their Maze Bank accounts. 

The bonuses, both for cash and RP, are the big attention grabbers from the updates, but the sales that Rockstar also drops are nothing to be ignored either. You can save quite a lot on a car that you want or a business you want to own. 

With Black Friday getting underway in the real world – marking a few days of sales – Rockstar have also joined in the fun with some pretty interesting discounts as well. 

Open Wheel races bonuses – 2x Cash & RP

As already noted, the bonuses are the biggest part of the weekly updates, so we’ll start there. This week, starting November 26, is all about Open Wheel Races for double rewards while King of the Hill pays out triple. 

The bonuses for Open Wheel races are not limited to one or two select tracks, but you will have to jump into a Rockstar Created race to earn the bonus. The best way to check this is to simply join a race from the pink F1 car icons that are dotted around the map.

If a lobby then decides to vote for a non-Rockstar Created race, simply back out and find a different lobby. You’ll have up to December 9th to earn the bonus rewards.
