The next set of cars that will be making their way to the casino podium in GTA Online have been revealed – and there are plenty of expensive vehicles still yet to come. 

When GTA Online’s Diamond Casino finally swung open its doors in July of 2019, players finally had the chance to gamble their hard-earned cash on a variety of different games. Though, as anyone who has entered the casino will know, it also does give back. 

The lucky spin wheel gives each player a daily spin, and by trying their luck, GTA Online fans can end up with new clothing, free cash, or even a new car. When it comes to the cream of the crop for free cars, these appear on the rotating podium that sits in front of the spin wheel – and there are still some pretty nice cars left to get their moment in the spotlight.

Back in March, reliable Rockstar Games insider TezFun revealed a list of ten cars that would be released in the build-up to the summer months on the spin wheel. As some of those cars have been ticked off and released, there are still plenty to go.

Players have noted that the Apocalypse Deathbike, V-STR, R88, and S80RR are all yet to be released from TezFun’s initial list. The $4,628,400 Scramjet didn’t make the cut on the insider’s initial list, but was recently added to the podium files and should also be available from the spin wheel in the near future. 

Just a quick reminder to not buy any of these vehicles, since they will be on the podium the following weeks. from gtaonline

Now, when these vehicles will get their turn on the casino podium is a different story. Nobody knows the order in which the cars will be available – it is just a case of waiting for Rockstar’s weekly Thursday updates.

Once all these cars have been available from the spin wheel, Rockstar will have to add more, and they could come from GTA Online’s next major update. The last rumors suggested that Cops N Crooks would be making a returning but we’ll just have to wait and see about that.

A known Rockstar insider is claiming that the next big update to GTA Online will finally expand the map and bring a new heist alongside it.

For those out of the loop, GTA Online’s upcoming winter update is promising to be a big one. Rockstar has stated that the new heist will be taking place in an “entirely new location.”

While the location itself hasn’t been revealed yet, some have suggested that Rockstar will be opening up new buildings inside Los Santos.

Others believe that the new heist may be returning to the Diamond Casino as there seems to already be something currently under construction. It’s possible this could be the “new location” Rockstar hinted at.

However, insider Liberty93 has now claimed that according to sources, a future update will be the “biggest in the history of GTA Online” with its first-ever map expansion.

Additionally, he wrote that the now unlisted music video for the Gorillaz song ‘The Valley of The Pagans’ teased the map expansion. The video, which was shot in GTA V, features a new island similar to the one shown on the Plastic Beach album.

There is some evidence from Rockstar that further suggests the map expansion is coming in the December patch.

During a Q1 earnings call, Take Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick said: “Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online will receive major updates later this fiscal year, featuring an extension to existing Frontier Pursuits for Red Dead Online, as well as Grand Theft Auto Online’s biggest update ever, featuring a new take on heists in a new location.”

Sadly, Liberty93 also claims that while he can confirm a map expansion is coming, it may not arrive in the winter update.

“Take Two likes to play with words a bit and a new location can also be a new location like the mall, the Korz Center or many others,” he explained.

The next GTA Online update will be massive.

“Caution is therefore required, even if on our side we can now confirm that a map extension should arrive sooner or later on GTA Online.”

With a standalone version of GTA Online coming to next-gen consoles in 2021, it would make sense to see a massive update to the map. Until then, all we can do is wait and see what the future holds, especially with GTA 6 still looming in the shadows.
