A new weekly update is live in GTA Online on March 19, adding the James Bond-inspired JB700W to the Lucky Wheel, plus some major discounts and double GTA$ and RP in various modes.

Last week, you could have picked up the Nagasaki Shotaro on the Lucky Wheel if you were, well, lucky enough. There was also a 3x cash and RP bonus in Deadline mode, and although this week the bonus is only 2x, it's available in three different ways.

We expect these additions will be available for another seven days, until March 25, then presumably Rockstar will drop another update on the 26th.

Rockstar have now posted the full patch notes online to keep us up to date with all the changes in the March 19 GTA Online update.

March 19 GTA Online Update

Lucky Wheel podium: JB 700W

Rockstar Games
Get your hands on 007's wheels.

The new James Bond movie may have been delayed, but you can still rock some classic 007 wheels in GTA. The JB700W vehicle has been added to the GTA Diamond Casino podium. The Sports Classic would typically set you back $1,470,000 if purchased from Warstock Cache & Carry.

You will get one spin of the wheel each day you play for a chance to win it and drive it away without spending a penny.

Casino Heist

There's a new shipment of Diamonds in the Casino vault, so if you've been casing it for a heist, now's the time.

GTA Online cash bonuses

Looking to make some extra cash and RP this week? Make sure to play King of the Hill modes, Casino freemode and work missions to earn double GTA$ and RP.

Also, just for logging in, you'll get the white and black 'Street Crimes Icons Tee' for free.
