The elusive sparkling jewels aren’t always available in the game’s online mode, but when they are, players can get some serious cash boosts for the Diamond Casino heist, should they complete it successfully. This time, they’re back with an increased spawn rate.

With a fresh Grand Theft Auto V update rolling out on July 16, it’s not just heist rewards that have been mixed up this week, but also the vehicle on the Casino podium, cash boosts for specific missions, and more.

So, let’s jump into the early patch notes – based on information from Rockstar leaker TezFunz2.

GTA Online July 16 update patch notes: What’s changed?

Lucky Wheel reward: Komoda

The Lampadati Komoda has landed on the GTA Diamond Casino podium.

The vehicle that was first added to GTA Online with the Diamond Casino heist update has returned to the gambling center, and is available to grab for free in the Lucky Wheel rewards.

If you were to purchase this car in-game, it would set you back around $1.7 million from Legendary Motorsport, but every day for the next week you’ll have a shot at winning it for absolutely nothing. Good luck!

GTA cash boosts, races and time trials

The Vespucci Job is just one of many time trials and races to feature in this week’s patch notes.

Triple rewards for cash and RP will be available on The Vespucci Job in Adversary mode, with double boosts headed to Special Cargo Business and RC Time Trials.

Speaking of which, the RC Time Trial for the week is Vespucci Canals, premium race is Crossing Paths, and normal time trial of Galileo Park. Complete as many of these missions and races as you can to grab bigger rewards than usual in GTA Online.
